Mitsubishi Evo Lite - 23rd March, 2017

It looks like an Evo X but without the as much power, the steep price tag and a bit more everyday drivability. But while the Galant Fortis Ralliart is not the Evo monster it does still pack a punch and it looks the business...read on

A Severe Case of Heartburn - 21st March, 2017

It’s had a fire under the hood and it looks like it has been given a black eye. Life hasn’t been good to this old Corvette of late but maybe you could restore its confidence...and its burnt engine bay. It otherwise looks like a solid car that’d make a great winter project. Read on...

Classic Auction – Futuristic French - 17th March, 2017

In these days of cars filled with clever gadgets and innovative engineering it’s a good time to reflect on a car that was truly ahead of its time. The Citroen DS/ID was so ahead of its time when launched it shocked the motoring world. More than 50 years on it still looks gloriously bonkers. Read on...

Classic Auction - The Last Charger - 14th March,2017

“The Last Charger” may sound like a good name for a Hollywood movie but in this case it refers to the last Valiant Charger assembled in New Zealand. That may not be the stuff of Hollywood but to many fans the Charger is a Blockbuster and to own the last one to roll out of Todd Motor’s Porirua plant would be a privilege. Well apparently this is that very car. Read on...

Classic Auction – Japanese Curiosity - 7th March, 2017

It’s a French/American inspired Japanese car, designed by an Italian, and assembled in Thames, NZ. And you may never have heard of it. Hino are more noted these days for their trucks but for a few years in the 50s and 60s it got into the car market, first with the Hino Renault 4CV and then the short lived but very cool Contessa. These cars are rare but as they were assembled in NZ we may be the best place to find one. And we found one. And it’s a beauty. Read on...

How Not to Store Your Pride and Joy - 3rd March, 2017

This 1962 E-Type Jaguar was purchased from the car’s first owner in 1997 and put into “storage” with plans to restore it. But it would seem that the new owner’s storage was, in fact, a septic tank that was still in use. Either that or it has been secretly attending the Glastonbury festival for the last 20 years. It’s coming up for auction in England with a price expectation of NZ$70,000. Excuse me? Read on...

Fair Weather Bavaria - 28th February, 2017

With any luck the best of this summer is yet to come. So - at the risk of attracting the ire of some readers by featuring a car with a ‘buy it now’ price and with the risk of that car being sold before you’ve had a chance to read this - we have to feature this eye catching BMW Z4. It may have been around for 13 years but this Z4 still looks young and fresh and has lived a very sheltered existence. Read more...

Mightiest Merc of them all? - 22nd February, 2017

Mercedes is pretty much an apex predator when it comes to car brands and at the top of the Benz range is the S-Class. So if a C-Class Merc is a Mako shark then the S-Class is a Great White. And at the top of the S-Class range is the S-500 (yeah there’s an S-600 but that’s like the mutant shark in Jaws 3). The S-Class is more than just a luxury car, it’s the car that debuts Mercedes latest technology. It’s also SERIOUSLY expensive. But here’s a chance to get a discount on a near new one that’s barely worked up a sweat. Read on...
