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

1968 Triumph Herald – Hark This Herald’s Angles Sing

When David Burke-Kennedy went to visit the owner of this beautifully restored Triumph Herald, he was surprised in more ways than one. You can’t help smiling when you reach the end of the long driveway to Andrew Cowsill’s pristine 19th-century house.

1986 BMW M635 CSi – Majestic M-Sport

For many classic car enthusiasts, the catalyst for owning a car from a particular marque stems back to the first sighting of that model and the thought, ‘one day I’m going to own one of those’ Phil O’Reilly, the owner of this glorious BMW M635CSi, clearly remembers ogling a blue example at Team McMillan in Remuera Road, Auckland, back in the mid-’80s — a time when red braces and big hair were in, and the world was our oyster. A time when little old New

1955 FJ Holden Ute – Bangers From A Banger

At NZ Classic Car, we’re always enthused and fascinated by the incredible variety of classic cars that exist in this great country of ours. They range from Austins to Zodiacs, Lamborghinis and Ferraris to Morris Minors and Javelins – and all of them come with their own unique stories and with owners who are equally enthusiastic and passionate about what their favourite marque means to them.
