Experts & Specialists


Route 101 Classic Car Centre was started eight years ago by Thys Venter after he sold a business venture he founded and found himself with a urge to get involved with his long time passion for classic cars.

Route101 Classic Car Centre first opened its doors for business in Midrand  on the Old Pretoria Road, also now known as the R101. The Business initially focussed on Classic Car Storage and Sales and included a small Bistro where many classic car enthusiasts and car clubs met on a regular basis.

When Thys accepted an very good offer on the business premisses that housed Route 101 Classic Car Centre, the business was moved to one of his other vacant business premises in Jet Park, Boksburg with more workshop facilities. The initial workshop activity was focussed on working and restoring his own vehicles, but a number of outside requests for work and  restorations quickly followed.

When he sold the JetPark premised at the end of 2020, it provided the opportunity to move to premisses that was better suited for the evolving and growing business.

Our new facility with its spacious, modern workshop and retail space l allows us to offer ever-improving levels of workmanship and customer service for the discerning classic car owner. Route 101 Classic Car Centre has a dedicated team of people whose passion and expertise is dedicated to ensuring that our customers and their cars are our only priority.
