Drives of Yesteryear

Contact Us

We are a family run business based near Royston specialising in providing authentic Classic and Retro-Classic chauffeur driven vehicles. We pride ourselves on the immaculate presentation of our cars and the personal and professional service you will receive on your most important and special day.

All our vehicles are owned by us, are fully insured and maintained by us to the highest standard. They will be fully valeted to the highest standard and decorated with ribbons and bows in the colour, or colour combination, of your choice.

At the centre of our fleet are a pair of beautifully presented Armstrong Siddeley Sapphire 346’s that capture the luxury and opulence of a bygone age with their graceful flowing lines and polished exterior.

HTY 650 – The Count

The Count was built in 1955 and carries a rich Ruby Red top over Ivory which perfectly complements his beautifully trimmed Ivory leather interior. Couple this with that air of refinement which only wood can give and you have a carriage of great distinction.

509 APC – The Green Lady

The Green Lady left the production line in 1956. She is painted in attractive Corinthian Green over Ivory and also benefits from a lovely green leather interior. Apart from the colour schemes she is pretty much identical to The Count and is available for hire on her own or as a pair with The Count.

The Jaguar

We also offer an S Type Jaguar. The vehicle was designed at the end of the last century to pay tribute to the original S Type of the 1960’s in the Retro-Classis style that has become so popular with car manufacturers. Our car is a deep Pacific blue colour with Cream leather interior.

Something for the Groom

For the groom who would wish to drive himself to South Farm, or to be driven by his Best Man, we have a classic MGB GT which is available for self drive hire.

MG 1300 Estate – Madge

Madge returned to us in March 2017 following a 2 year restoration. She will appeal to the couple who want something totally different for their wedding as no estate versions of the MG 1300 were ever made by the factory and she is therefore totally unique.

Our Charges

We offer our Armstrong Siddeleys from £350 for a single vehicle but can provide a discount if more than one car is booked. The Jaguar and MG 1300 estate are available from £250, while prices for the MGB GT for self drive are from £150.

Wedding Car Offer – Exclusive to South Farm

If you are having your wedding ceremony at South Farm as well as the reception it may be that you are also taking advantage of the wonderful facilities here to get ready. You may not therefore need a car to provide transport to South Farm.

We recognise this but understand that transport is not the only reason to have a car at your wedding. We are therefore able to offer you a car for static display at an attractive rate.

You can have one of our Armstrong Siddeley cars for 3 hours at a cost of £200. This will enable the car to be here when your guests arrive and still be available for photographs after the ceremony.

The package also includes up to 10 miles of driving so that the car can collect guests staying at Fen Bridge Farm or other local B&B’s. Alternatively, you could have a short drive after the ceremony for a little alone time before your wedding reception.
