Totalled Torana - A Sad End or a New Beginning? 4th December, 2017

It would be sad if this was just another old Holden Torana but doubly so in this case as it’s purportedly a one owner 1972 LJ “S” model with just 62,000 original miles on the clock. Before it had an argument with something very solid it was in beautiful condition and this may be its saving grace. It just might be worth saving.

Feel Good as you Drive to Work

This old digger would’ve been quite the catch in 1978. A factory V8 Kingswood Ute with power steering was bordering on posh back then. But compared to today’s Utes with their Bluetooth, climate control and comfy seats this old boy seems prehistoric. And flat out cool. Read on...

Classic Car Auction: Beauty is in the eye of the Beholder - 28th September, 2017

Looking like something a 1970s Texan oil baron might drive, this converted Lincoln Versailles must surely be the only one in NZ. It won’t be to everybody’s taste but after a few beers – around 25 – I bet it starts to look pretty damn sexy. Well stock up the fridge because this bad boy is being sold as part of our Classic Car Auction. Read on...

Classic Auction – The Heavy Hitter - 25th September, 2017

A Ford Falcon GT from the seventies is a fantasy car for many fans of the blue oval. A rock solid investment, an Aussie icon and a car you can stare at for hours. It’s a heavy hitter in the NZ classic car world so when a genuine, unrestored, matching numbers, NZ new car comes along, what do you do? Reach for the big wallet, that’s what. Read on...

Classic Auction – Aussie Luxury - 19th September, 2017

To many, the idea of Aussie luxury is a bottle of VB served in a glass. But if you drove a Ford Fairlane in 1976 then you were doing pretty well for yourself. The ZH series Fairlane was bigger and bolder than the regular Falcon and had a fancier level of trim. But like many Aussie luxury cars of this vintage – think Holden Statesman and Brougham – they are a bit underappreciated today. Read on...

Better Than a New One - 22nd August, 2017

A 1983 Land Rover for $33k might seem a tad on the nose. And it would be for any old 1983 Landy, but this isn’t any old 1983 Land Rover. This one is very special. Read on...

The Durable German - 4th August, 2017

In 2004 a Greek taxi driver donated his 1976 Mercedes W115 240D to the Mercedes Benz museum in Stuttgart. He figured he’d got his money’s worth out of it and the big German car giant might like it. Why? Because it had travelled 4.6 million kilometres. Old Mercs were built to last and this one in our National Classic Car auction looks to have plenty of miles left in it. Read on...

Schoolboy fantasy – 27th July, 2017

The Turners National Classic Car auction starting tomorrow is shaping up well. As usual it’s an eclectic mix of styles, ages and origins and as usual there is the unusual. Take this 1982 Lotus Esprit S3 – an aggressive wedge of a car with a mid-mounted engine and a James Bond connection, as well as a Kiwi connection. Read on...

Vantastic! - 25th July, 2017

Classic Fords have been appreciating in value at alarming rates over the last few years and the once modest Anglia is no exception. And while the vans were hardly rare (over 200,000 built), for the most part they lived a typical van life – short and hard. Survivors are rare in NZ making this one all the more desirable. It’s part of the Turners National Classic Car Auction starting this Friday. Read on...

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...
