The purchase of a crushed boy racer car will see a charity benefit by more than $800.
The first car to feel the impact of Crusher Collins' boy racer legislation has been sold on Trade Me by Macauley Metals.
Marketing manager Joanne Rollos says they wanted the money to go into the prevention of continued boy racer activity, and Youthline was it.
"We chose a charity that was useful, as such, they just seemed to be the most fitting one and were really keen to have the support, so it's been great."
Ms Rollos says she's not sure what the buyer will do with his purchase.
And the mystery buyer of the car has been revealed.
It will be transported from Wellington where it met its doom, to Auckland's Museum of Transport and Technology, also known as MOTAT.
They bought the Nissan Laurel for $818.
A spokeswoman for the museum says it will be on display within a month.
She says it will be used for a number of things including a teaching aid for road safety and for crushing technologies.
