Man Finds Car Exactly Where he Left it...20 Years Ago - 21st November, 2017

We’ve all done it, parked the car (usually in a multi-story car park) and wandered off to go about our business only to return with absolutely no idea what level we left the car on. Well that’s sort of what happened to a German man who parked his car but then couldn’t find it. Read on...

Vantastic! 14th November, 2017

There was a time through the 70s and 80s when every second Bedford CF van was customised into what was commonly referred to as a Shaggin’ Wagon with airbrushed fantasy images of scantily clad women, tigers, dragons or Nordic gods. You just don’t see them these days but could they be making a comeback? Read on...

A Porsche for Under $10k! 10th November, 2017

At a time when classic Porsche 911 prices have shot into the stratosphere and beyond it seems refreshing to see an example of the luxury marque at a price that seems more in line with a used Honda Jazz. Okay, sure, it’s an SUV and it’s done few kilometres but it’s still a Porsche with an auction estimate of $6500 - $7500. Read on...

Luxury is a State of Mind - 9th November, 2017

Sometimes the key to a successful sale is selling an idea, a feeling or a concept rather than the product itself. Coca cola is associated with summer, fun and vibrancy rather than a sweet fizzy drink that’s quite good when you’re hung-over. And so it is with this very professional ad for a 1996 Honda Accord with 141,000 miles on the clock belonging to the ad maker’s girlfriend. Read on...

Get Smart - 3rd November, 2017

The bumper sticker says “Be SMART of the Revolution” which may not be the most elegant play on words but you get the idea. I’m not sure that the Smart car brought about revolution but you’d think grid-locked Auckland would be awash with them, but it’s not. However, a walk around the inner city streets of somewhere like Rome suggests the Smart has its place. Maybe it has a place in your life. Read on...

Retro Cruiser or Cafe Racer - 31st October, 2017

The Honda CB has been around for Donkeys and although this CB400 SS looks straight from the pages of a seventies magazine it was actually built in 2002. However, it’s not just a retro themed modern bike. No, the CB400 SS is kick start only with a carburettor and chrome. It’s genuine old-school and it’s lightweight, simple and looks cool. And it could look even cooler. Read on...

A Full Squad of Highlanders - 30th October, 2017

Despite a name that conjures up images of Scotland and a Rugby team from NZ’s deep south, the Toyota Highlander is actually an American made SUV – more burger and fries than Haggis and Speights. It’s big and tough but it also has finesse and comfort in spades. And Turners has the full team available for sale at very keen prices. Read on...

Feel Good as you Drive to Work

This old digger would’ve been quite the catch in 1978. A factory V8 Kingswood Ute with power steering was bordering on posh back then. But compared to today’s Utes with their Bluetooth, climate control and comfy seats this old boy seems prehistoric. And flat out cool. Read on...

Classic Auction - For the Truly Dedicated Holden Fan - 3rd October, 2017

“Ay Steve, can you move the Camira? I need to get the Torana out to get to the Commodore.” “Sure thing Dad, but I'll have to get the keys to the Cortina if I'm gunna move that Camira.” “Alright mate, just watch the boat” That famous scene from classic Aussie movie The Castle was possibly the Camira’s best moment. So with the movie turning 20 this year, what better time to buy a Camira...to park in front of the Torana. Read on...

Classic Car Auction: Beauty is in the eye of the Beholder - 28th September, 2017

Looking like something a 1970s Texan oil baron might drive, this converted Lincoln Versailles must surely be the only one in NZ. It won’t be to everybody’s taste but after a few beers – around 25 – I bet it starts to look pretty damn sexy. Well stock up the fridge because this bad boy is being sold as part of our Classic Car Auction. Read on...
