Have you seen the price of petrol lately? 12th December, 2017

When you mention the word Prius you often get told by car purists to shut up and never mention the name again. Or you are told how they’d never be seen dead in one. But seriously, have you seen the price of fuel lately? And for your daily commute what more do you really need? Turners have a bunch of Prius C cars available right now.

Totalled Torana - A Sad End or a New Beginning? 4th December, 2017

It would be sad if this was just another old Holden Torana but doubly so in this case as it’s purportedly a one owner 1972 LJ “S” model with just 62,000 original miles on the clock. Before it had an argument with something very solid it was in beautiful condition and this may be its saving grace. It just might be worth saving.

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...
