We moved to this address 45 Veronica Street New Lynn, Waitkere City in late December 2008. The previous 30 years we were situated in Point Chevalier, Auckland. Immediately below shows our undercover two level Showroom in New Lynn, Waitakere City, further below shows our previous site at Point Chevalier.
My staff and I love cars, always have always will. The Car Business is forever changing just like the vehicle's themselves, I have been in the car business since I left school in 1967 and still love the challenge!
TED TRACEYS LMVD offer for sale over 100 vehicles from this 2 level fully undercover building. All of my personally selected imported Japanese vehicles have Guaranteed Kilometre Certificates. Come on in and experience the difference of looking for a vehicle with the feeling of being in a shop, maybe watch a bit of TV or just enjoy our full surround-sound music! There is no such thing as a rainy day here, the high stud building isn't at all intimidating and you definitely won't be pressured here. You are more than welcome to come in and browse at our vehicles.
Prior to Veronica Street
In 1972 I left School and went to work for my dad Brian Tracey he was Licensed Motor Vehicle Dealer. I was his car groomer and instantly thought I knew it all, I know I caused him some major headaches! I obtained my own Motor Vehicle Dealer License in 1976 at the age of 22 years old.
In 1979 I purchased the premises at 1172 Great North Road Point Chevalier. During 1983 the premises was extended by purchasing the property next door. Extensive work was carried out on the two sections.
The premises then held around 70 vehicles, it was surrounded by a 2 metre high fence with infra-red alarm system and monitored 24/7. The yard was also fully cobbled landscaped and flood lit at night.
I have always loved cars especially performance vehicles. Up until 1995 I was selling performance vehicles from Australia and U.S.A. I don't know how many, Falcon GTs, Monaros, Torana SLR 5000s, Mustangs, Camaros, Corvettes, etc that I have sold. I felt like a change and I decided to go to Japan and have a look at what was available.
I found the Japanese vehicles were such great value for money that I decided to change to mainly Japanese Imports. I buy an extensive variety of vehicles but still enjoy performance vehicles - the performance and the look of a vehicle with mags, spoilers, body kits etc still gets me pumping! I feel my vehicles are value for money.
You be the judge!!
