For the Smart Summer Buyer - 14th August, 2018

Winter may seem like an odd time to buy a convertible but actually the best time to buy a sunny day car is after a long stretch of cold, wet, windy, short days - the sort of days you’d never have the top down on your convertible. That’s why this 2009, NZ New Audi A5 Quattro is a good idea right now. Why? Read on...

Vanishing Point Revisited - 10th August, 2018

The original Dodge Challenger was one of the all-time great movie cars so it’s not surprising Chrysler decided to revive the legend. This 2011 R/T at Turners Wellington is a limited Hurst edition with just 26,000kms on the clock. So what does the “Hurst” bit mean and why do you want one? Read on...

Beautiful Bogans - 7th August, 2018

Of the Aussie classics of the seventies the Chrysler Valiant is perhaps the one that is still a bit undervalued compared to the big Holden and Ford competitors from the era. Still, good ones are few and far between so finding two for sale in such fantastic original condition presents a rare opportunity to invest in a car still on an upward curve. Read on...

Limo with a Price that’s not a Stretch - 30th July, 2018

This Ex-NZ Government limo was sold by Turners back in 2011. Then, with 90,000kms on the clock, it sold for around $40k. Today, having covered only a few more kilometres, it could be yours for $14,990. Long gone is the lingering odour of Peter Dunne’s hairspray or Judith Collins’s perfume but the history remains and it could all be yours. Read on...

Yes, I do own the road actually - 27th July, 2018

It’s the size of an ocean liner, has a 6.8 litre engine that runs on the sweat and tears of the great unwashed and is quite difficult to park. But none of this matters as you’ll have a driver to deal with the tricky stuff while you sit in the back seat plotting another corporate takeover whilst savouring a very fine single malt whisky.

514 Angry Horses - 24th July, 2018

In 2006 the Mercedes E63 AMG was THE heavy hitter in the world of super sedans. It out powered the BMW M5, made the Audi S6 feel a bit puny, and it spanked the Holden HSV E-Series. It was insanely powerful and fast and would empty your bank account to the tune of around $200k. So when you see one with an auction estimate of $7500-$8500 you sit up and pay attention. Read on...

Mint Mini - 20th July, 2018

Time takes its toll on nearly every car. Wet winters, less than caring owners, rough roads and high miles finish most cars off inside 20 years. But every now and then a survivor pops up that defies time. At 41 years old this 1977 Mini 1000 looks like it has been drinking from the fountain of youth, and you can buy it. Read on...

Cute Coupe - 16th July, 2018

Turners Christchurch has an interesting selection of classics being auctioned at the moment but it’s this pretty Alfa GTV that catches the eye. It’s the right colour combination, has the right wheels and, for the driver, arguably the best engine. And it’s being sold with no reserve. Read on...

France or Croatia for the win? 13th July, 2018

The Football World Cup final takes place on Monday morning so we thought I’d dig through the Turners website for some interesting French and Croatian cars for sale right now (I’d been counting on an England win for this post obviously). Here are three of the best and, strangely, they are all French. Read on...

You can Lead a Horse to Water... 10th July, 2018

This 2016 Ford Mustang GT Fastback went for a swim and nearly drowned. Are your life guarding skills good enough to resuscitate this once proud steed or has the fresh water inundation spelled curtains on its short life? Read on...
