The Retro America Story

Retro America was born out of the lifestyle we live and from our passion for collecting things we love.

At Retro America we pride ourselves on offering an amazing selection of genuine hand-picked hot rod & vintage antiques, memorabilia, collectables, clothing and magazines straight outta the USA - we're proud to bring you things you won’t see anywhere else in New Zealand, and all at a price you can afford!

With Retro America being the home of Straight Cut Clothing and Unkle Sams you'll find something for everyone – while a 'man cave' Mecca, we also have loads for the ladies and a bunch of cool stuff for the little petrol head in your life.

We love the story each antique piece has to tell and get a kick out of keeping history alive by sharing these pieces of history with y'all. We also love the opportunity for personal expression the rockabilly and pin up lifestyle allows especially through the clothing. Living the hot rod scene here in New Zealand helps us bring traditional hot rod & motorcycle magazines and DVD's to our fellow hot rodders & kustom kulture kats too.

PLEASE NOTE: Between January and April we unfortunately we need to close our brick & mortar store regularly as we take the shop on the road to bring Retro America to shows around the country. We know this can be frustrating and we hate having to close the shop but it's the best way to share the love with all our wonderful customers up and down NZ. Where we can we will keep the shop open but usually it means taking most of our stock and therefore not much is left so nothing to see in store. Please phone us on 07 574 3829 or 021 2844 370 to check our hours. We thank you for your patience during this time.
