Our Story

At the heart of Cape Classic Cars lies a foundation of pure automotive passion. Based in the Northern Suburbs of Cape Town, Cape Classic Cars is a shop dedicated to providing unparalleled service to the classic car community.


With over two decades of experience in the classic automotive industry, Ashley Thompson (Owner) has honed his skills restoring and maintaining a variety of hot rods, muscle cars, classics, and exotics. Since 2003, he has been actively involved in classic car shows and events nationwide. It was this passion for classics that brought about the start of Cape Classic Cars.


Our traditional shop specializes in everything needed to keep your classic car cruising the roads. Our services include maintenance, repairs, complete overhauls, restorations, performance / restomod upgrades, and more. We can even help you sell your classic car or hunt down that elusive dream car you’ve always wanted.


“Great cars are works of art. Like a painting, a great classic will tell you just enough of its own story to take hold of your emotions and let your imagination run wild.” -Ashley Thompson.


Cape Classic Cars is not just about maintaining and restoring the iconic cars of yesteryear; we are also deeply rooted in the classic car community and host a variety of regular events, from meet-ups to charity drives and more.
