Discerning Buyers Welcome...

I often call in to Laurie's Yesteryear Barn when visiting the little Coromandel town of Paeroa.
It's also known as New Zealand's Antique Town, mainly because of the numbers of antique shops on the main street.
Back at Laurie's you can wander through his palatial car yard inspecting the wonderful top quality vehicles he has on display.
You could be forgiven for thinking that some of these bargains have been sitting here forever.
As you can imagine, the motors are in tip-top condition and if not near new are reconditioned.
The most experienced car enthusiast will be able to detect a very small amount of what we like to call 'body decay' but is known more colloquially as rust. Such a nice sounding word isn't it.
So here are a few of Laurie's special specials, specially priced for Easter.
But you'll have to be quick...
