Brown Sugar - 20th July, 2017

If you were wealthy in 1970s America then the Cadillac De Ville was probably the car for you. If you were a member of a certain type of “family” you probably went for the top of the line Coupe D’Elegance with a trunk big enough to carry at least two adult bodies. This lovely example is part of the National Classic Car Auction starting 28th July. Read on...

Toronado Alert - 18th July, 2017

The Oldsmobile Toronado is possibly one of the better looking American cars of the era and is significant for being the first front wheel drive American car since 1937. And it’s still the only American car ever to get on the podium in the European Car of the Year awards (3rd in 1966). This 1970 example with less than 9000 miles on the clock is part of the Turners National Classic Car Auction starting on 28th July. Read on...

Back to the Future, and Back Again - 13th July, 2017

If there is such a thing as a car that is double retro then the Nissan Figaro is it. It was a special project for the Japanese market launched under the banner “back to the future”. That was 26 years ago, which quite possibly makes it the first car to re-imagine the 60s and the first to become a retro themed classic in its own right. So it’s now double retro. This one’s being auctioned at Turners North Shore. Read on...

America’s Cup – You Have to Start Somewhere - 6th July, 2017

Who says sailing is a rich person’s sport? It might be for some but with this old P-Class, getting started in New Zealand’s new favourite sport is possibly cheaper than a season of cricket, rugby or Netball and definitely cheaper than cycling or motorsport. Sure you won’t be foiling but you will be learning... Read on

So Much Posh, So Little Money - 3rd July, 2017

Porsche ownership is something most of us assume is for those people with stacks of cash or an appetite for crippling debt. But you could join the club for about the price of a four year old Toyota Corolla...read on

A Dying Breed – 16th June, 2017

Back when SUVs were a mere twinkle in their designer’s eye and Utes were strictly for farmers and Tradies, large wagons like this 2008 Falcon roamed the roads of NZ filled with children or salesmen’s samples or dead bodies. Now, like VHS videos and afternoon Test matches, the large wagon is fast being consigned to the history books. But this big Falcon still has much to offer. Read on...
