1. RC AUDI

In 1996 Audi’s A4 Quattro flogged all comers in the fiercely fought British Touring Car Championship, as it did in the German Super Tourenwagen Cup of 1996. It won 10 of 18 races with nine of those victories achieved by Italian ace Emanuele Pirro. Here we have a superb rendition of Pirro’s A4 made of polycarbonate. The radio controlled rocketship has been carefully recreated and includes the side mirrors and rear wing. It comes with a sticker set and for authenticity it is AWD. @$200 tamiya.com

2. THE ONLY WAY IS UP

If you like tinkering with your toys in the shed, Hero 4-post Hoists have a range to suit most vehicle sizes and weights and to fit every space. It’s the ideal way to service or store your vehicles and more affordable than you can imagine. With safety paramount the hoists pose no threat if knocked or shunted accidentally. If you don’t want to bolt it down, there’s no need to, making installation quicker and simpler. They come with a lifetime structural warranty and a 3-year motor warranty. ‍herohoists.com.au

Does your shed fridge stand out from the crowd like this one from Bar Fridges Australia? The Petrol Bowser Upright Bar Fridge is just the thing for keeping your frothies cool. The glass door fridge is a slim 395mm wide, with triple glazing, a lockable door and LOW E glass to prevent condensation. There’s LED lighting and adjustable shelves, each taking 16 cans or 25 Corona size bottles. If you want a true bespoke fridge, Bar Fridges Australia will customise one for you. @$1700 bar-fridges.australia.com.au

4. SM LEGENDS

When you’re not out driving your car or working on it, or talking cars with your mates, it is always nice to put your feet up and read about other folk like you with petrol in their veins and high performance cars in their sheds. Our sister publication Street Machine, the bible of Australia’s modified car scene has just launched its Legends Book Volume 1 that showcases 60 of the best-loved feature cars to appear in the magazine during its first 20 years. $40 street-machine-shop

5. AUSSIE FIRST

Next time you visit Canberra make sure you leave time to go to the Australian National Museum. It is home to many many exhibits and surprisingly boasts a rather comprehensive vehicle collection from the earliest days of motoring in this wide brown land right up to the time that vehicles were no longer produced here. To make your visit is a bit more special pop into the store where you will find a range of gifts, apparel, books and DVDs to suit all tastes and budgets. Even non motoring enthusiasts are catered for. shop.nma.gov.au

6. ALFA T-SHIRT

Like the Italian motoring brand they honour, these superb, 100 per cent ringspun cotton tees are top quality. They sit and fit as if they were tailor made. The fabric is the softest in the business. They are made in America and if you order yours today, you can have it on your back within a couple of weeks. @$30 + shipping teepublic.com
