Make a Wish Come True

The Make A Wish Foundation is a charity that grants wishes to terminally ill children, bringing them joy in a very difficult time.

The sort of people who might find the idea of a convertible a bit frivolous but deep down wish they could be a bit more ‘devil may care’ if only the cost/benefit analysis stacked up. Sound familiar?

Injured Muscle

Classic American cars are costly in NZ.

It’s for sale at Turners classic auction this Saturday. Read on...

Future Classic or Future Scrap?

It may seem unlikely now but looking at the surging tide of old Ford Falcon prices suggests newer ones will one day be prized by future enthusiasts. In which case buying this 15 year old BF XR6 with low kilometres and only two owners for $8500 makes a lot of sense. Read on...
