We’ve been at it now for two decades, so we know pretty much everyone in the industry along with more than a few of Australia’s (and the world’s) best collectors, builders, customisers and automotive enthusiasts. Here’s a small selection of what they have to say about MotoRRetro.

“I was lucky enough to meet Vaughan & Georgio during my 2023 Australian Tour and they were a pleasure to work with. Their Sydney set-up is second to none and I’d gladly recommend them to anyone looking to customise their car or bike.”

“During my stay in Australia, I was lucky enough to hang out with Vaughan & Georgio and co-host two classes at MotoRRetro. Their knowledge and abilities to restore and create the most beautiful cars and bikes is unbelievable. Anyone considering a restoration project at MotoRRetro or attending one of their weekly classes can do so with confidence.”

Whether you are staring at your long stalled project or you just acquired the bones of your dream vehicle, MotorRetro is a great place to get things rolling! The workshop is extremely well equipped and George, Vaughan and the team will guide you effortlessly through what may seem like a daunting journey. There’s nothing more satisfying than standing back, admiring your work and saying “I did that!” So if you are really passionate about your project or improving your skills, then I would highly recommend the crew at MotorRetro who share that passion.”

“This car workshop is one in a million. Vaughan and Georgio embody the passion and experience of true craftsmen and their teaching experience means even newbies like me can see great skills development and make meaningful progress on our car restoration projects. It would not have been possible without MotoRRetro Sydney. Keep up the great work lads.”

“Car restoration made easy with the help of the guys from MotoRRetro Sydney. I was able to do the basics but attending their classes and being able to bring my car on site to work on, as well as the workshop set-up, tools, assistance and industry  knowledge made the work a lot easier and quicker which would have been impossible to do in my own garage.”

“Georgio and Vaughan are very experienced and skilled, but even better they are great teachers. The workshop is incredibly well equipped with old and modern gear. Thank you for guiding me through the project.”

“Beyond the expertise, equipment and contacts, perhaps most importantly, the need for MotoRRetro to do business is secondary compared to the commitment and passion to help people realise their dreams.”
