One of the amusing sidelights of internet trading is the Crapathon sales of Hamilton-based merchandise mover 1-Day. For a modest outlay, they send you a box of who-knows-what, but guaranteed to be worth the price. Now, on Trademe, Archibalds, the Christchurch Land Rover dealer, is doing something similar with a huge box of Land Rover parts for a $1 reserve (auction closes Apr 30). Only this time you do know what you're getting because they provide a list. The items range from a TD4 Freelander decal to a Defender injector relief valve. Good on you Archibalds, it's great to see a dealership parts department being pro-active, rather than just sitting there waiting to separate us from our money for parts we could have imported for half the price … if only we'd known we'd need them!
UPDATE: The auction attracted 25 bids and the box sold for $76.
