The Supercar for the Whole Family - 12th October, 2018

The BMW E60 M5 is a supercar for the whole family at a very un-supercar price. It has a 10 cylinder engine that pumps out 500hp and was the fastest four door sedan in the world when released. It also has plenty of room for the kids and a couple of dogs, all of which will be truly excited/terrified every time you hit the loud pedal. Read on...

Any Colour as long as it’s Black? 9th October, 2018

The oldest car at this Saturday’s classic car auction in Leithfield is also one of the most important. The Ford Model T took the car from a hand built luxury item for the wealthy to a mass produced ‘must have’ for middle class Americans. If you’re into cars then you have to acknowledge the Model T as the most influential car in history. Wouldn’t it be great to own one? Read on...

The Handsome Ferrari

When you think of Ferrari you think two seats, mid-mounted engine, low to the ground and pretty. But in the late 70s Ferrari decided to dabble in the grand tourer market and the result was 4 seats, a front mounted V12 and looks that are more handsome than pretty. This rare car is being auctioned on October 13th. Read on...

Subaru’s Wacky Wedge - 25th September, 2018

It was a sales flop in its day - maybe it was before its time, maybe after its time – and that means not many rolled off the assembly line. In fact only 7000 right hand drive SVXs were built and the tiniest handful were sold new in NZ. So it’s rare but does this mean Subaru’s luxury wedge will one day be desirable? Well as punts go, this one might be worth taking. Read on...

Financially Challenged Person’s Porsche - 19th September, 2018

The quintessential classic Porsche is the 911 but if you are looking for a classic Porka on a skinny budget then the 911 may as well be a pet Unicorn – they simply don’t exist on a skinny budget.

Maybe, rather than spending $60k on that restoration project you should maybe just spend $50k on one that’s already done. Like this one. Read on...

Summer is Coming - 7th September, 2018

Stylish, Frugal, Clever and Cheap - 4th September, 2018

The headline with Fiat’s TwinAir Panda is ‘frugality’ but there’s so much more to this stylish Italian city car. With Petrol prices on the rise and the addition of regional fuel taxes the opportunity to buy a two cylinder, 875cc Fiat is pretty timely. And this clever Panda is not expensive either, in fact it’s positively cheap. Read on...
