Photo of my Mini GTS just after purchase new in October 1973. Note that it had no stripes or door mirrors. I sold it in 1975.

A lovely colour combination on the 1275 GT, Gold on Creme with a gold decal. This one was spotted on trademe in late 2019, looks in solid original condition. Looks to be the correct original motor. At the time it was offered, the seller noted it runs and drives, but the rego was on hold. Check out the others on the 1275 GT register below - lots of NZ cars..

A modern classic benz, the C36 was the first mass produced AMG offering, and these are fast becoming very collectable, especially with low mileage. This particular cat has only 92,000km on the clock - exceptional for its age. Only 5,200 were built in total. This C36 was spotted on Trademe NZ in December 2019. The original advertisement stated that the car had no Kiwi owners - so we presume this car has been imported from Japan or the UK. 

If you've got one, we'd love to see more added to the register so the details of these modern classics can be kept alive.

Spotted for sale on Ebay Australia in November 2019, this is a very rare SVO enhanced Falcon - only one other on the register here. At the time it was offered, the seller made the following comments: 1989 Ford Falcon EA SVO sedan, limited edition modified by performance engine builder Mick Webb and sold through authorised Ford dealers, the SVO was Ford's 'hero' car to compete against the likes of HSV and Nissan SVD.

The first on the register, a rare 1990 Mini 30th Anniversary. This one was advertised on Ebay USA in November 2019, asking $10,900 buy it now. Looks in solid condition, with the seller noting the car originally came from Japan.

This customised GTO was advertised on trademe NZ ni November 2019. Interesting modifications - this one has a fuel injected motor setup, and electric windows so u can easily wind all 4 windows down and cruise with the pillerless windows. A bit or rust and scrapes, but looks like its worth spending some money on - wouldnt take much to get it looking great.

It's been a while, but finally we've spotted another LS for sale to add to the register! This one was listed on Ebay Australia in November 2019. Looks to be very original, other than the wheels. Must have lost its 8.4 inch disc brakes at some point as it's sitting on 10 inch wheels.

It was obviously a very popular colour in NZ - of the few GTs we have on the register here, the Brown / Bronze GTs are the most numerous. This one looks to be in great condition, and was asking $10K NZD in Oct 2019 on trademe.co.nz. The owner noted at the time that the carpet is original, and in great condition. Seats look to have an aftermarket re-trim in similar to original colours..

Hard to find these early 1275 GTS - this one with its original 10 inch wheels (as appeared on early GTs before they went to the 12 inch). Looks to be relatively original from a distance, but has had some inyteresting vinyl work done to the foor and quite a bit of engine work. Not much needed to bring it back to factory (which is what I'd want to do).

This one was advertised on Ebay UK in Oct 2019 with a classified price of 8,950 GBP. The seller noted the following comments at the time it was advertised:
