A man with humble beginnings on the family farm, minimal formal education and no qualifications, but an enormous drive and vision. Along with a very smart, loyal and patient wife! He founded one of the most successful automotive small businesses in Australia, was the initiator of trends, creator some of the most radical, yet immaculately engineered cars this country (and all others) have seen and inspired thousands to modify their own cars.

Often found observing and listening to reactions from a distance with what many misconstrue as a grumpy, dour look on his face, he prefers to let his cars do the talking, and boy do they do get people talking! Following is the story of a name well recognised in the Australian automotive landscape, but a person who very few actually really know.

Book Features:

  • The only book about Rod Hadfield.
  • Suitable for all motoring enthusiasts.
  • Ideal gift for fathers day.
