The Handsome Ferrari

When you think of Ferrari you think two seats, mid-mounted engine, low to the ground and pretty. But in the late 70s Ferrari decided to dabble in the grand tourer market and the result was 4 seats, a front mounted V12 and looks that are more handsome than pretty. This rare car is being auctioned on October 13th. Read on...

Coveted Collection to be Auctioned - 1st October, 2018

Financially Challenged Person’s Porsche - 19th September, 2018

The quintessential classic Porsche is the 911 but if you are looking for a classic Porka on a skinny budget then the 911 may as well be a pet Unicorn – they simply don’t exist on a skinny budget. But there’s always Plan B: one of Porsche’s less glamorous front engine models, and preferably the strangely attractive 944, like this one. Read on...

Incredible Impala - 11th September, 2018

With spring upon us the time for finishing, or indeed starting, that “winter project” may have passed. But with a summer of car shows such as Beach Hop to look forward to maybe life’s too short for completing that project anyway. Maybe, rather than spending $60k on that restoration project you should maybe just spend $50k on one that’s already done. Like this one. Read on...

Vantastic - 27th August, 2018

Some may be surprised to find that there’s a market for classic vans but there certainly is and the first generation Ford Transit is one to watch. With old VW Kombis commanding stratospheric prices these old Transits look like a bit of a bargain. And usually being a hard living commercial vehicle this may be one of the best left out there.

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...
