Smoking Hot Classic - 2nd February, 2018

Most retired fire engines that come up for sale aren’t exactly the most practical vehicles to park in your driveway or on the street outside your house. But this 1976 Toyota FJ45 Smoke Chaser is just about the right size and it may just cause a few grown-up six year olds to spontaneously combust with excitement. Read on...

House and Car Package Deal - 31st January, 2018

It’s not often you get the opportunity to buy a Kiwi new 1989 Land Rover 110 ute with low mileage. So when one comes along AND it includes a house on the back, well you better not miss out. And it’s hard to imagine any other campervan or caravan going where this one can go so if you truly love the proper outdoors then read on...

The Size of a Small Planet - 26th January, 2018

With temperatures pushing the mercury to record levels around the country it seems appropriate that this gorgeous Mercury Eight is up for sale at Turners Tauranga. Basically a Ford in a nice suit, the Mercury lives up to its name by being the size of a small planet. And this NZ assembled example has the added advantage of having the steering wheel on the right side. Read on...

Little Red Corvette? 5th January, 2018

When Prince wrote his hit song about a little red Corvette we can only assume he wasn’t comparing its size to his own stature because the Corvette is a big car and Prince was a brilliant small man. With a 5.7L V8 and an overall length of 4.6 metres the only thing “little” about this red Corvette is the price...read on

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...
