We Migrated Classic Car Africa from their old Word Press CMS and still kept all the functionality. Document and tag handling, profile and user management, business content and image management are a few examples of the features.

The final result comprises of a full-house cloud based CMS and client facing sites, a revamped car site and brand new (real-time) auction site. These products grab hold of all users attention and keep them coming back for more.


A tailor made Django Wagtail CMS seemed an obvious choice for reliability and customization. Giving Classic Car Africa the Lamborghini in CMS was our driving force. Payment processing for potential buyers and bidders administered through an API integration. Solid systems always lead to an increase in productivity, which is certainly the case for Classic Car Africa.
