What is the Repco Beach Hop?

The Repco Beach Hop is New Zealand’s number 1 Nostalgia Festival that celebrates the best of the 50’s & 60’s. There are many things for which Repco Beach Hop is known: most notably, the music, retro style, and the droves of classic cars that fill the town for the week.

 

Max Loans are proud to be one of its supporters. For as long as most regular Beach Hop attendees remember, Saturday has been the big one.  At the Max Loans Classic Car Fair and Auction, classic car enthusiasts are able to see a fantastic line up of classic cars on display for sale.  As the exclusive finance broker at the Repco Beach Hop, we have been working with classic car enthusiast for many years and are ideally placed to help buyers secure finance (if needed) to enable them to obtain the classic car of their dreams.
