‘The Ultimate Street to Cruise.’
Commenced Trading in 1991 in Dimboola with only a small line of products and selling mostly by mail order working on a part time basis slowly expanding the range. Later becoming a full time operation.
In November 1995 relocated to larger premises in Dimboola with more Office space. At the same time due to problems obtaining some items from the US and finding some items not suitable for the Australian market the manufacturing side of the business developed further.
In June 2000 the business relocated to bigger premises in Castlemaine with room for developing new products and for further possible expansion in the future.
In 2012 a new extension was built and in 2013 opened with a new show room.
In 2020 the new challenge with business was COVID as this delayed suppliers with stock in and my products getting out to customers. At the same time a data breech on the H.A.M.B. led to identity theft and issues with the H.A.M.B., Garage Journal and Ford Barn. Some one was using my business name to sell inferior Chinese made product via social media sites. This also led to my business being listed as fraudulent on the H.A.M.B.and on Reverse Australia web site. An interesting article on this data breach was posted on the FordSix.com web site by the Administration of that forum listing many other sites that information had been used on. I have also been listed on a Chinese web site as a seller of Street & Road Lighting and given there is no translation for Street Rod or Hot Rod into Chinese all of this has become an annoying bump in the road. I have run this business since 1991 and have always looked for quality products to sell (none made in China) and if I would not use it myself then I would not have it for sale for a Customer. Quality is Remembered, Long after the Price is Forgotten.
In 2022 the opportunity came about to move to a new web site and that is www.streetrod.au . The old web site www.streetrod.com.au still has many of our older established lines and the new web site will grow with stock expansion.
