Alpine A110 – At the Start of It’s Restoration Journey

The whole team is very excited about this project, very cool car and very rare in New Zealand. This Alpine A110 looks amazing in its current condition. Just imagine how it’s going to look when fully restored. Bit of History from Wikipedia Launched in 1961 the A110, like previous road-going Alpines, used many Renault parts, including engines. While its predecessor the A108 was designed around Dauphine components, the A110 was updated to use R8 parts. Unlike the A108, which was available first as a cabriolet and only later as a coupé, the

1977 Toyota FJ40 Land Cruiser – Surgical Procedure

The road into this story is a long and winding one, which begins when three of the Muir brothers — Tony, Neville, and Guy — began developing a 121-lot subdivision in Ngaio, Wellington, in 1970. Tony initially owned a 1965 Land Rover, and, in 1968, he and Guy purchased two new Austin Gipsys, originally designed as competitors to the Landy. In 1976, the brothers replaced the Gipsys with two new Toyota Land Cruisers (these days referred to as ‘FJ40s’), and, in 1978, the three brothers

A cool little project getting close to completion ….a humble Anglia, it had been a long-term dream of the owner to have a “Harry Potter” Anglia as a classic everyday runner. The client wanted the original interior kept in it’s aged condition so that the car didn’t have that “over restored” look, but the body work and paint needed to be as new. The colour combination is original and certainly compliments the period look which will have cream wheels with white wall tyres when it
