About Vintage Motor Garage

Vintage Motor Garage has a proud history of vehicle restoration in Australia. In 1973 Max Houston founded VMG as a one man operation in an earth floor farm shed. Max, a mechanic himself, did most of the work initially, gradually employing tradesmen to complete various aspects of the restoration. Over the years the earth floor was replaced with concrete and the shed grew up the yard. It now covers an area of approximately 1400 sq metres.

Jonathan, Max's son, took on the business at the beginning of 2001 and is continuing to provide enthusiasts with world class restoration services. More than thirty years on VMG currently employs sixteen full and part time staff. The team at VMG strives to provide a service of integrity and quality workmanship. It is the true one stop shop for restoration and servicing of all vintage and classic vehicles.

Over the years hundreds of vehicles have been completely restored or have had major work carried out. Countless others have had minor repairs and regular servicing. VMG is equipped to deal with the full restoration of any motor vehicle. Whether your project is a veteran, vintage or classic vehicle, a commercial vehicle, or even a motorcycle, we can call on many years of expertise and experience from our dedicated staff. Time and again the team can often be engaged in recreating virtually the whole vehicle or part thereof. VMG is also able to carry out meticulous regular servicing of your special vehicle.

Interestingly, vehicles have aged from the turn of the century veterans to cars younger than the business. Over the years many fascinating vehicles have passed through the doors ranging from one of the original Chitty Chitty Bang Bang movie cars to Vice-Regal limousines. Vehicles that have been restored by VMG now reside in and have won numerous trophies in all parts of Australia, Europe, the USA and Asia.
