February 2018 edition of Retroautos is now online


The February 2018 edition of Retroautos is now online on the Shannons Club website. Here’s the LINK.

This month we feature the GM’s secret concept car, the “Solaris”. It was designed in late 1961 to test styling ideas and significantly influenced the shape of the HD Holden. We’ve got the inside story and the photos.

Plus, we chat to David Davis about his Austin A105, Russell Holden shares what it is like to own a 102 year old Chevrolet and Wayne Williams, the Car Rescuer, takes us for a tour of his collection, which includes a 1956 Packard 400 and a 1962 Dodge Custom 880

We have never before published photos of the 1972 ZF Ford Fairlane prototypes.

Phil Green chats to us about his 1966 Buick Riviera, plus we have a Design to Driveway feature about the development of the ’66 Riviera.

Regional Australian cities are full of great classic cars. We go to Mount Isa to hear about Glen Graham’s EJ Holden wagon and Ford Mustang,

Rob Burns shows us around his 1933 Aussie-built Dodge to remind us what motoring was like 80 years ago.

July 2017 Retroautos is out!

The July 2017 edition of Retroautos is now online. Please click on this LINK and it will take you to the magazine.

The big news this month is that we have uncovered Holden’s secret plans to replace the FJ in 1954 with a model they called the “FG”, two years before the FE was released. The” FG” has been a well kept secret for many years and Holden’s plans included a sedan, ute, panel van and a 4X4 light truck. But it never went beyond the prototype stage. We can now bring you the exclusive story and the photos of this long forgotten Holden.

Plus, we showcase a VW Combi Collection that pays for itself !

We hope you enjoy this issue of Retroautos. As always, it is published with passion and with pride.

The November edition of RetroAutos is out.

I am very pleased to announce that the November edition of RetroAutos is now available to read online.
I am sorry I missed announcing the October edition, but I have been super busy trying to find a new job and I completely missed it.
As I hope you know, my pictures are a regular feature of RetroAutos magazine and have been for the past 12 months or so. It is very exciting and a little humbling to have so many people looking at my creations.
The other exciting news is that Shannons is hosting the magazine.
This issues covers:
The 40th anniversary of the Rover SD1
100 Dorts in the world
1948 TASCO
and of course my pics.
I would like to thank David, the editor for his continued hard work.

We chat with John Gerdtz, who owns Buicks, and Bill Kington, who collects Lincolns, about 1970s American luxury cars. It was a time when size did matter.
