“Workshop antics, petrol filled veins, the pressure mounts to get each resto completed. With time not usually on their side and things not always going to plan, the team turns everything from family heirlooms to barn finds in to Resto’d Rides”

Under the watchful eye of Dec McKearney, Resto my Ride showcases a unique team of Aussie panel beaters, spray painters and mechanics who share a passion to bring older rod, muscle, classic and custom vehicles back to their former glory.

Car guys are 4 times more valuable than the average consumer

Resto my Ride has an active audience of engaged supporters across multiple digital channels.

Our “Superfans” are a powerful audience for partners as the purchasing influence of the “enthusiast” is valued at over four times more valuable then that of the average consumer.


  • They’re more likely to be males, with a love for Motor Bikes, Cars and Boats. They work within the car trade industry and are self proclaimed car guys.
  • They spend more to ensure their car’s and workshops are well maintained.  And spend money on alcohol, fast food, energy drinks and betting.

This “Enthusiast” consumer also has more money to spend, with a net worth that’s 50 percent higher than the national average, and are twice as likely to pay more for high-quality items.


  • These Car guys are more receptive to advertising and product placement and  prefer to be targeted with marketing messages whilst watching content that they are passionate about.

Enthusiasts also have more money to spend, with a net worth that’s 50 percent higher than the national average, and are twice as likely to pay more for high-quality items.

To connect with an audience, more than ever, a brand needs an emotional connection and to see the people behind the business.

Our producers can strategically produce content to generate the most exposure and awareness for Saint Gobain brands dependent on your strategy.

As experts in brand positioning, we know how to position your brand in order to connect with our audience.  A dream opportunity to capitalise on our audience by having us promote and endorse you whilst also telling your story.
