Celebrating the Auto Industry at the MTA Queensland Ball:

Hosted by Shane Jacobson with special guest speaker Supercar legend Craig Lowndes, the event culminated in the presentation of the prestigious MTA Institute Apprentice of the Year Award.

In out MTA Q&A feature, we talk to Nathan Brookes from The Garage Miami.

In our Member’s Classic feature, we chat to Ross Reid from Dier Automotive about his 1948 GMC Pick-up.

We also look at the uses of 3D printing, the Motor Trade Golf Competition and we have a Xmas Gift Guide for those looking for ideas with an auto angle. We also talk to Grant Malseed of Superformance who, with his talented team, is battling it out on the TV show Workshop Wars, turning a stock Chevy pick-up into a ‘street monster’.
