Established in Wedding Car and Self Drive Hire

This is not simply a business for me. I have always had a passion for classic cars and have owned a variety of vehicles over the course of the last 30 plus years ranging from a Mark 1 Ford Escort, through to the inevitable Minis, a Hillman Imp and VW Golfs in both Mark 1 and GTI Mark 2 forms.

Owning a number of vehicles made it difficult for me to expand the fleet further and enjoy new driving experiences without upsetting the domestic management. However, the chance to take early retirement presented the ideal opportunity to own more classic cars and enjoy driving them. As a result Drives of Yesteryear was founded to give pleasure to others for their special day. This has the added bonus for me of being able to indulge my hobby at the same time, of owning and driving classic cars.

Please explore the two distinct divisions of this website, which are respectively dedicated to the wedding car and the self drive hire businesses. There you can learn more about what is on offer and how to contact me if you have any questions or would like to enquire about a booking.
