1979 Toyota Corolla sells for $12,750 at auction

A low-mileage 1979 Toyota Corolla has sold at auction for twice its original purchase price, with the virtual hammer falling on a final bid of $12,750. Rich Fowler from Collecting Cars Australia told CarAdvice the untampered condition of the Corolla contributed to the healthy price. "We consigned the Corolla because it was in 'granny-spec' with just 31,000 kms and no modifications, it qualifies as an entry-level collector car," Mr Fowler said.

Victorian Government announces plan to 'partly privatise' registration and licensing

The Victorian Government has announced it will hand over parts of VicRoads operations to private companies, in an effort to rebuild the department's antiquated computer systems. The government says the plan will deliver better customer service for Victorian road users, but has refused to rule out cost increases. "We’re going to put in place a joint-venture partnership with the private sector to ensure that we get a modernised, adaptable service," Treasurer Tim Pallas told a media briefing.

The second member of Porsche's expanding Taycan family, the Cross Turismo arrives as a more practical, wagon-bodied alternative to the regular Taycan sedan – with a (small) dose of off-road capability to boot, thanks to SUV-inspired body cladding and a raised ride height.
