Win one of ten Repco gift cards worth $50 by telling us what you’d use it for

If you want to feel totally immersed in automotive products and parts just head to Repco’s new auto centre over at 79 Wairau Road on Auckland’s North Shore. They’ve opened the doors to their new store — which happens to be the biggest Repco in the country — and you’ll have more than 23,000 parts available to you over the counter as well as access to approximately 450,000 automotive parts to be ordered in if need be.

Repco’s first Auto Centre was opened in Lower Hutt three months back, and it wasn’t long until the concept travelled up the country to Auckland. Everything related to automotive parts, tools and equipment can be found under its roof. And while you’re in the store you can check out the interactive touchscreens, which you’ll be able to use to search for tips on such things as changing wiper blades, performing body repairs, and information on filters.


To celebrate the opening of Repco’s new auto centre, we have ten Repco gift cards worth $50 to give away — all you need to do to go in the draw is to scroll down to the bottom of this post to the ‘comments’ section and share a comment stating what you’d spend your gift card on.

The Jowett Jupiter turns 70

John Ball has always enjoyed tinkering with old boats and cars. He’s old enough to think having gearbox parts on newspaper on the floor of his bedroom, while the relevant car sat waiting on nail boxes, was a normal part of growing up. His passion has always tended towards old British bangers. He reckons he’s fortunate not to have got caught up in the American muscle scene.
John’s love affair with this Jupiter started in December 2015 when, with some time on his hands during a Christchurch trip, he searched online for ‘cars, before 1970 and in Christchurch’.

A passion for classics and customs

A company managing to achieve this is D A Panel beating Ltd, of Rangiora near Christchurch. Is your classic or custom car restoration stalled, or in need of a refresh, or perhaps you are looking for experts to rebuild that recent import project out of Europe or the ‘States?
