To complement his fully illustrated history of utes in Australia, Joel Wakely has gathered together dozens of fascinating stories about many of the models that various Australian manufacturers (and indeed some overseas ones too) have produced since the early 20th century.

Joel tells the whole story of utes in Australia, from the first home-constructed vehicles in the 1910s and 20s, to Fords first true ute in the 1930s, the first all-Australian (Holden) ute in the early 1950s, and the highlights of several more decades of ute development.

With contributions from dozens of ute enthusiasts about their myriad cars plus hundreds of photographs, many never seen in print before, this is a ute book like no other, a book from the heart that goes deep into the passion that utes engender.

Joel Wakely

Joel Wakely left the family concern in 1958 to start his first business venture in the automotive industry: a new BP service station.

It was here he got involved in a Holden racing team. After working for Bob Jane-T Mart for 7 years he started a 30-year career in the car rental industry with Avis Rent-a-Car Australia and later Dollar Rent-a-Car.

After a short retirement, Joel’s passion for cars led him to start another new business: Avant-Garde Detailing, specialising in the restoration and detailing of prestige and unique vehicles.

Now in his second retirement, Joel has turned to writing, beginning with Legends of the 48-215, a book centred on his personal involvement with many drivers of this early model and their unique cars
