Our business was founded in 1950 by Glyn Scott at our original address in Rosalie, he invoked a sense of quality and pride in the maintenance of motor vehicles which we proudly continue today. Wayne Park purchased and changed the name of the business to Wayne Park Automotive in 1986 and moved to our current address at Milton in 1997. Glyn was also involved in the motor racing industry and Wayne Park has continued this legacy, through the preparation and racing of national championship winning cars. Our humble workshop has designed, built and restored classic cars from Ferrari, Lamborghini and Porsche, as well as Ford and Holden vehicles. We are one of the co-founders of the Iconic Australian Ute racing series which began in 2001, designing and building the first 32 race utes from our workshop at Milton. We have prepared and restored vehicles for events worldwide at legendary circuits from LeMans and Spa in Europe to Australian events such as the Bathurst 1000 and support races for the Australian Grand Prix. We have raced and maintained vehicles for many endurance events from the Australian Safari to Targa Tasmania, strong finishes in these events have been achieved which reinforces the sense of “Taking PRIDE in vehicle maintenance” even today.
We have several long serving staff Members both our foreman and leading hand have worked under the leadership of Glyn Scott and Wayne Park and over fifty per cent of our staff has been with us for over ten years.
We also make the safety of the family vehicle a priority by cost effectively maintaining vehicles, owing to these efforts we are proud to have a loyal customer base with many of our customers being 2nd and 3rd generation. Wayne and Lisa Park have operated the business together for many years, Wayne himself is 2nd generation in the automotive industry and now his sons are starting to contribute their talents to the business.
We are proud to have such a strong heritage in the motor industry and will continue to offer honest, dependable service to our customers.
