"Terra Nova" vehicles to go up for sale

June 13, 2012 12:00 AM

The dinosaur-related television series "Terra Nova" wasn't all that popular, which is why it was canceled after just one season. However, the show did feature some interesting vehicles, which the producers are now auctioning off, according to TMZ.com.

While famous TV show cars like the General Lee from the Dukes of Hazzard can fetch hundreds of thousands of dollars, the group of "Terra Nova" fans willing to buy these cars isn't quite as large. Thus, the prices for these modified Land Rovers and Range Rovers from the 1980s and 1990s are pretty affordable. One of the modified Range Rovers is selling for $2,409, while a slightly more recent Toyota Land Cruiser is up for $6,059. The auctioneers are based in Australia.

The vehicles are modified to look "futuristic" and thus aren't considered street-legal. The auction notice also says "inspection recommended," so it's likely that the super-fan who purchases these old cars will have quite a few auto repairs to make and vehicle maintenance to perform.

Whether drivers have a car that graced the silver screen or one they pulled off the scrap heap, keeping up with scheduled maintenance is important to ensuring it stays on the road.
