Old World Lamps and Tyres

has become

The Veteran Garage 

New Website launch - The Veteran Garage

After many years of operating Old World Lamps and Tyres, Chris and I (Russell) have sold the tyre side of our operation and the lamp restorations has broadened into other areas of restorations. Old World Lamps and Tyres evolved when, after years of restoring cars as a hobby, we decided that rather than do the things we were both commercially trained in, we would do together the things we both love (playing with old cars) and combine our talents to create beautiful things. The Veteran Garage has since evolved from Old World Lamps and Tyres and we still operate The Veteran Garage from our 7 acre farmlet in the beautiful wine grape region of Mudgee, NSW, Australia which is situated about 3 ½ hours west of Sydney. For more about us (Russell & Chris), have a look at our new website (click on the words) - The Veteran Garage  

Within our business we have a number of branches, all revolving around old cars:

  • ImportingIf you are looking to import anything from the United States we can assist, whether it is a 50’s Cadillac or 1903 Steam car, a jet ski, a pair of doors or just some heavy stuff you purchased on EBay, we can bring them into the country for you.

  • Cars and parts for sale - in our travels, we often come across some varied, beautiful and interesting cars and parts. Check out the For Sales pages on the new website to see our latest acquisitions !!!

  • Restorations - is now a wonderful combination of restorations for us and others - we currently have a number of projects on the go including a 1913 original Cadillac ute, a 1908 Maxwell, 2 x 1906 Cadillacs (both a Model H and Model K!), and a 1934 Federal truck, just as a sample
