Established in 1983, Ken's Kars is a family-run business in Chipping Sodbury just outside of the vibrant city of Bristol. With a fantastic fleet of lovingly restored genuine vintage cars from the 1920s and 1930s, rest assured you will roll up to your wedding in style and luxury.

The colour range of the fleet is extensive so you can choose a car that's right for you and the colour scheme of your wedding. Established in 1983 by Ken himself, it is now his grandson, Wayne, who fronts the business and shares the same passion for vintage cars.


Ken's Kars was the product of Ken Harmer's passion and keen hobby for restoring and driving vintage cars. Between the 1950s and 1960s, Ken and his father ran and owned the only 24-hour taxi company in Chipping Sodbury. The cars they used were 1930s Austins.

Ken set up the car hire business in 1983 with his wife. At this point there were seven Austin 18s in the fleet; all restored and maintained by Ken. In 1988 Ken's son Roy added two American 'gangster' cars to the fleet.

Ken's Kars has been lovingly passed along to his grandson Wayne who shares the same passion for vintage cars.

The Cars

The fleet is comprised of a range of '20s and '30s genuine vintage cars built up and restored by Ken. There is a mix of English Austins and American 'gangster' style cars. Each car has a different colour scheme, meaning you can find the perfect car to match the colour scheme of your wedding.

Each car can seat up to four people with exception of the Austin York that can hold up to six people.

1928 Studebaker Dictator

This gorgeous car has burgundy and black coachwork and white wall tyres. As an American car, it is known to be a typical 'gangster' style car. The interior still holds its original burgundy velour seating.

1937 Austin York Saloon (seats 6)

The perfect colour for a wedding, this stunning ivory car has a black roof and dark red interior. The Austin York can seat up to six people, perfect if you want to travel along with your bridesmaids.

Another American addition to the fleet, this was imported from Pennsylvania in 1987. With beige and burgundy bodywork, this statement car has impressive dual side mounts.

With a silver and dark red exterior that contrasts incredibly well, this car is perfect if you want to make a statement.

1936 Austin Westminster

This is a typical vintage car perfect to carry brides, with its ivory exterior and interior.

1935 Austin Westminster

    We used the beautiful red car for our wedding. My husband and I were so impressed with the service and we would definitely recommend this company. Nothing was too much trouble and the driver was so calming and helpful driving towards the church. Thank you so much!

    We got married at Kingscote Barn. We can honestly that Wayne contributed to a very special day. Not only was the car amazing and impressive, but Wayne was incredible, he was patient and helpful with everything from the trips to the venue to helping me out of the car with my long dress not to mention staying long for photos. We couldn't have asked for more. Thank you so much.
