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.

The Alternative Option

We understand that many couples will have decided to get married at South Farm and for that reason may feel that they do not need a car.


Before you dismiss wedding car transport from your list of requirements for your special day consider these things:-

  1. A car is part of the wedding dressing. It not only provides you with transport but can be used as a status symbol or to set the ambiance for your day by being one of the first things that your guests see when they arrive at South Farm.
  2. You may like to get away from it all for a bit, perhaps during your guests drinks reception. You can slip away to regroup or perhaps enjoy your first journey together as a married couple.
  3. The one thing that will endure longer than anything else is the photographic record that you will have of your day, why not enhance it with a beautiful car.

We recognise these things and are able to offer a special package to those getting married at South Farm of a static vehicle on site for 3 hours for wedding dressing and external photographs at a special price. Our charges for a South Farm Weekday Wedding (Monday to Thursday) are £200 for one of the Armstrong Siddeleys and £125 for the Jaguar or MG 1300 estate, with the option of a Chauffeur on site for 1 hour to give internal access to the car plus a short drive around the local lanes for a further £50. For Weekend Weddings (Friday to Sunday) add £50 per car.
