  6. Working on your own car is perhaps one of the most satisfying aspects of modifying cars. Sometimes though, you just don’t know where to start, especially if you are not handy with tools in the first place. Perhaps you are a quite a DIYer, but your project has grinded to a halt, thanks to parts being out of production, or simply too expensive to purchase. More often than not, the project has simply reached a point where a craftsman would have to take over. The great news is Motorretro is here to help. Started up by bodywork maestros Georgio Rimi and Vaughan Ryan, Motorretro provides enthusiast classes and a space to learn how to do panel beating, welding and other related skills. Georgio and Vaughan were classmates at Ultimo TAFE back in 1989, and became fast friends and rivals. Each strived to be the best at panel beating, and after having successful careers and businesses, the pair decided to work together again. Both realised that there were lots of bikes and cars rusting away in sheds, simply because the owners did not have the knowledge or tools to continue restoring them. By offering classes in vehicle body repairs, motorcycle restorations or customising parts, Georgio and Vaughan can impart over 40 years of knowledge and skills to the average bloke having a go. “We offer our students classes in vehicle body repairs, motorcycle restorations, custom fabrication, welding and traditional coach building skills,” says Vaughan. He emphasised that classes are limited to 10 students per class. Students learn hands-on in a casual and enjoyable atmosphere, and all skill levels are welcomed. After class hours are available, and students can opt to stay back and work on their own projects, with 90 per cent of the workshop’s tools available for use (subject to conditions, of course). Keeping up with current technology, Motorretro also offers in-house 3D printing and CAD services for those who want to take a step further in prototyping or customising parts that are no longer made. They also offer car/bike restoration or designing services for those who needs expert help on their projects.

  15. Fans will have the chance to snap up some rare memorabilia as racing royalty Allan Moffat prepares to close his famous workshop in Toorak, Melbourne. The 75-year-old Moffat has elected to sell the property, where he has operated his racing and business affairs since 1961. The workshop housed all of Allan Moffat Racing’s famous competition vehicles over four decades before being rented by a Porsche repair business in recent years. With the land to be redeveloped by its new owners, Moffat’s son and current V8 Supercars driver James is organising a garage sale that will offer a variety of items to the public. “It’s been a big job going through it all but there’s a lot of interesting bits and pieces that we’ve dug up,” said Allan Moffat “There’s a lot of unique items like Allan Moffat Racing toolboxes and workshop benches, ANZ sponsor banners and Peter Stuyvesant pit boards, as well as some model cars and magazines." “It’s sad in a way to see the workshop going. I’ve got memories of being in there when I was a kid, but reality dictates that everything has got to move on at some point.” The sale will run over the September 5-6 Father’s Day weekend at 711 Malvern Rd, Toorak VIC 3142, starting at 8am Saturday with plenty of memorabilia from the 1960s through the 1980s available. Don’t miss it!
