The Repperton Gang are the abusive gang of school bullies, and the secondary antagonists in the novel and film Christine.
Buddy Repperton was portrayed by William Ostrander, Richie Trelawney was portrayed by Steven Tash, Don Vandenberg was portrayed by Stuart Charno, and Moochie Welch was portrayed by Malcolm Danare.
Buddy is the gang's leader in the book and film. He is described as having dark greasy hair and "little eyes set to close together" Like Jack Merridew he seems to have a short temper as having "blazing eyes" when seen by Mr Casey. After refusing to turn out his pockets he eventually does so and gets suspended for assault with a deadly weapon. As revenge he and his gang trash Christine leaving her ruined. And this leads to his downfall. After driving back from a baseball game he is chased by Christine and killed by her too. In the film he is played by William Ostrander and is killed by Christine after she runs over him leaving his flaming corpse in the road.
Richie Trelawney acts as Buddy's "right hand man" and supposedly is his best friend as he always remains close to him. He stands next to him at a rugby game and travels with him home on both occasions. In the book he is killed in a car crash along with his friend Bobby Stanton. In the film he is played by Stephen Tash and has brown curly hair like John Deacon and he is killed after Christine crushes him against a wall and he is killed in the explosion that blows up the gas station taking Don Vandenberg with it.

Don Vandenberg is the tallest one of Buddy's friends. He is mentioned as being 19-20 years old in the book. He is probably the most quiet of the gang in the movie as he says nothing throughout the film except one line "Is that Cunningham?" In the novel he has much more to say and is the last of Buddy's gang to die. In the film he is played by Stuart Charno and is killed in the explosion of the gas station along with another gang member: Richie Trelawney
