You Can Bet the Ranch on This One

Big old American wagons are very desirable right now but that usually means settling for an imported left hooker with unknown history. But this 1955 Ford Ranch Wagon was sold new in NZ and has the steering wheel correctly located for our roads. And it could be yours. Read on...

Godzilla 2

It’s not often you’ll hear ‘Nissan’, ‘Potential Bargain’ and ‘$29,000- $31,000’ being used in the same sentence but there it is, we said it. The original Godzilla was an instant classic when it was released in 1989 and prices have been rising like air-cooled Porsches recently. And there’s good reasons why the GT-R is worth so much and this R33, being auctioned next Thursday, looks like good buying. Read on...

That’s making the often overlooked NC model look like a sensible buy. Read on...

You know when a car is truly loved when the owner, who bought it brand new in England, has it shipped it to NZ when emigrating here and keeps the mileage really low and the condition super tidy. It’s not that surprising when you consider it’s an iconic Mercedes SL and as such would be hard to part with. But, alas, the time has come for this beautiful machine to find a new home. Read on...

The Pinnacle of Automotive Art

There are beautiful cars and there are ‘work of art’ cars. The 1950s Alfa Romeo BAT concept cars fall into the latter category which is why they are going under the hammer as one lot at an art auction rather than a car auction in New York next week. Read on...

Get it While You Still Can

With values of first-generation Toyota MR2s plotting a course for the stars, the second-generation cars are looking like a good bet at the moment. However, finding sub-200,000km manual examples that haven’t been messed with is not easy. But don’t give up because Turners Dunedin has a candidate that ticks the right boxes. Read on
