Reader Resto of the Year Award 2016

We're looking for candidates for our new national award, Reader Resto of the Year - and we want to hear from you...

In every issue of Unique Cars magazine we feature the handiwork of one of our readers – more often than not it’s about a long patient restoration, the story of an old car’s journey back to its former glory. The people involved are men, women, young and old, while the cars vary from Aussie classics, to American muscle, English thoroughbreds and Japanese gems.

We thought it was about time we celebrated those people and their achievements and we’re looking at you to help us do it. Presented at the annual Australian Motoring Awards, early in 2017, the gong will be judged by Unique Cars staff and specialty judges such as V8 Supercar legend John Bowe and our own shed-dwelling workshop guru Dave Morley.

What we love about this is the eclectic mix of young, old (and that’s just the owners!), Aussie, American, Brit, Eurothrash, Japanese and...actually, Korean hasn’t yet popped up on the radar. What we need to know about is any resto you and/or your dodgy mates have been involved in. Drop us a line at
