The right ingredients for a successful trade night
For more than 8 years, the AutoPartners team have been running premium trade nights for thousands of mechanics and workshop owners across Australia and we're always on the look out for those special locations to make it just that bit more interesting.
Tuesday August 13th 2013 was one of the more memorable occasions.
We were fortunate enough to secure a night at Bowdens Own showroom, probably Australia's greatest collection of muscle, racing and touring cars. Apart from hearing technical updates from major brands including SuperPro, Ferodo, Exedy, Century Batteries and The Automotive Technician, the invited mechanics, some who had travelled many kilometres from across the Sunshine Coast, were able to view 30 legendary vehicles from Australian race history. There was literally millions of dollars of historic vehicles unmatched by almost any other collection in Australia.
Dan Bowden provided a fascinating and intimate knowledge of each vehicle and how they were brought back to life. From Kevin Bartlett's Cheyy Camero, Pete Geoghegan's GTHO Super Falcon, Allan Moffat's Trans Am to a unique Mercedes Benz 1955 300 SL Gull Wing. The audience was captivated.
If you missed out on this exceptional opportunity, make sure you book your place in 2014.
"It would normally take me several weeks to visit the workshops who attend one event"
- Barry Langan, Monroe Representative.
"As a technician in this fast moving industry it is great to find out the latest information from a number of brands in one evening. The networking is also a great benefit of attending these evenings.
As a trainer and technical editor of "The Automotive Technician" (TaT) it is a bonus to be able to talk with so many technicians in one venue in one evening."
- Jeff Smit, TaT
