Mint Mini - 20th July, 2018

Time takes its toll on nearly every car. Wet winters, less than caring owners, rough roads and high miles finish most cars off inside 20 years. But every now and then a survivor pops up that defies time. At 41 years old this 1977 Mini 1000 looks like it has been drinking from the fountain of youth, and you can buy it. Read on...

Cute Coupe - 16th July, 2018

Turners Christchurch has an interesting selection of classics being auctioned at the moment but it’s this pretty Alfa GTV that catches the eye. It’s the right colour combination, has the right wheels and, for the driver, arguably the best engine. And it’s being sold with no reserve. Read on...

Stone Wash Denim Compulsory - 29th May, 2018

The eighties were the era of stone wash denim, Ocean Pacific tank tops, poodle hair and digital dashboards and the fourth generation C4 Corvette fits in with this era perfectly. It couldn’t be any more eighties if the stereo only played ‘Hot for Teacher’ by Van Halen on repeat. This one is coming up for sale at Turners Hamilton soon. Read on...

Munted Midget - 16th April, 2018

This classic 1970 MG Midget is a sad and sorry sight. What looks to have recently been a superb example of this British classic has since had some of its panel work forcefully realigned. Is it curtains for the little nipper or can it be saved? Read on...

As American as Coca Cola and Twinkies - 6th April, 2018

The Ranger may be top of the charts in NZ but the big daddy of pick-ups is Ford’s F series. It has been the biggest selling car in America since dinosaurs roamed the planet. Currently Ford sells 41 billion dollars worth of F Series trucks every year yet they are a comparatively rare sight on NZ roads. This one hails from the lone star state of Texas and it really is a thing of functional beauty.

This Firebird has the Sizzle - 21st March, 2018

By American standards the 1971 Pontiac Firebird Formula 400 is a very rare car. Only 7802 were built in ‘71 and with the passing of 47 tough years most of those have no doubt succumbed to the ravages of time. Not this one though. Oh no, this one is something really quite special and you can buy it. Read on...

It Will be Triumphant Again - 13th March, 2018

A few years ago this forlorn looking 1972 Triumph GT6 would’ve been sent to the crusher. But today there are few left of these baby E-Types and this one is sure to be saved from that fate. Of all the Triumph sports cars of the 60s and 70s the GT6 is perhaps the prettiest, and this mark 3 version is possibly the best of the lot. Read on...

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...
