Tunnel was created over a two year period and represents the first time that over 7000 rare and archival classic car images from the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s have been brought together in the one place. Tunnel Ram is now arguably the world’s greatest online image collection of classic cars, advertising and lifestyle. And what incredible imagery it is! The gallery reflects what some have called the peak of Madison Avenue (New York’s advertising Mecca) when General Motors engaged the 1960’s best creatives Fitzpatrick and Kaufman, to work on the Pontiac account. Two men tasked with travelling to the world’s most exotic locations, inspiring a new lifestyle dream with the ads they created for the pages of New Yorker magazine over the course of a decade. But it was not only Pontiac that received the treatment, Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet, Camaro Chevelle, Mustang, Shelby, Torino, Thunderbird, Corvette, Dodge all became the centre of iconic illustration, photography and advertising art.  It was a period when not only car design was at its most confident, ambitious and spectacular but the ideas around how to sell them were breaking new ground in commercial art and advertising strategy. Selling the dream had never been so well funded. And Australia wasn’t immune to this great trend, thankfully. We took our car design leads from the U.S up until the mid 70’s, which meant we stepped up with our creative for cars like Monaro, Torana, Charger and the iconic Sandman. Ford too, with the Falcon GT received an elevated marketing platform (now Australia’s most sought after classic car) Tunnel Ram is a fascinating journey into one of the high-water marks of human creativity.  To celebrate the launch of Tunnel Ram coinciding with the start of the 2019 F1 Racing season, Raph Tripp has created a gallery in honour of the history of Grand Prix drivers and manufacturers going back to 1950. While the focus is on this classic period in American and Australian design, Tunnel Ram throws the net wider, providing some further context to this period. Galleries for British, European and Japanese classics are also included as well concept cars, vans, dragsters and stars with their cars. Culturally, there are also galleries for non-car advertising, with archives of Australian and American Street Life and Surfing. Raph Tripp is a Melbourne based classic car writer and image archivalist. He has authoured articles on everything from Mustangs to the Bat Mobile. His writing is available for publication, please contact for permissions. Raph has been the proud owner of a ‘72 Falcon V8 coupe a-la Mad Max’s Interceptor, a Monaro GTS 350 4-speed, a ‘67 Pontiac Parisienne, a ‘65 Mustang and a succession of Aussie Valiants. Ben Cunningham a.k.a Bencu is an Australian graphic designer, producer, director and artist that has worked in music, film and fashion for 25 years. His clients have included Jimmy Barnes, INXS, Deep Purple, Kylie, Nike, Sony and L’Oreal. He was creative director at Michael Gudinski’s Mushroom Group from 2000-2010 and is currently developing two feature films and Tunnel Ram. Ben has been driven around in many incredible cars but he is sad to say, has not owned any - yet ...     Not ‘Just Car Buyers’: Sydney’s Unsung Heroes 2019-03-08T02:53:17Z not-just-car-buyers-sydney-s-unsung-heroes According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics,  There were 19.2 million registered motor vehicles in Australia as at 31 January 2018.

The Australian Demographic Statistics states the preliminary estimated resident population (ERP) of Australia at 30 June 2018 was 24,992,400 people. That's a lot of cars!     The question that arises is if there are already so many cars, and we’re buying more and more cars, where are the old ones going? They’re either populating our landfills and polluting our drinking water or are abandoned, lying on properties of people who aren’t too bothered about their real estate. What about the other old, unwanted cars in Sydney and its nearby suburbs? Google might not give you this answer but we will - its Scrap Cars Removals! Scrap Cars Removal is a car removal and scraps car buying company that offers its free services to people who want to sell an old car in Sydney.  Scrap Cars Removals has been operating their business in Sydney for a decade now. The business is profitable now, but wasn’t always so, claim the founding members of the organisation. ‘Scrap cars are of not much use, they are put into a machine, they come out as a box of metal. We sell that box. This business started off with the founding members picking up the cars and selling them off individually.’, said Zoey from the Sales Department. Chart 1. The services most preferred by customers at Scrap Car Removals, Sydney in the year 2009 By 2013, the company had seen a change is the vision of the organisation.

We’re much more than that - we think of ourselves as the agents for a cleaner Sydney. We started taking the trash away from Sydney-siders and reusing it for better things.”, said the spokesperson from Scrap Cars Removals, Sydney.  As per the company’s database management, there has been a change in the kinds of benefits people have preferred the most in their customer reviews. As the city of Sydney along with Sydney-siders grew aware of the situation of our environment, there is a very clear mention of the environment-friendly process that is used.   Chart 2.

This is a huge shift in the market that hadn’t predicted this sudden shift in demand due to lifestyle changes. This change in lifestyles could also be the contributing factor to the greater number of cars being recycled and sold to scrap car buyers. As Brisbane’s premium car removal service, Swift Cash for Cars has seen rapid growth in the number of daily customers they have served through the years.   This March, this premium car buyer is celebrating the successful completion of five years doing this business. A spokesperson from Swift Cash for Cars mentioned that they had seen an increase in the number of the cars they had been receiving over the years, but there was also a shift in the reception methods. Initially, the old cars received were mostly sold to them for cash and they would wreck it or scrap it and even sell it to other buyers. But with a change in lifestyles of people and increased awareness about proper waste disposal, people have shifted to getting free car removals of their junk cars.   Types of services offered by Swift Cash for Cars Cars in 2014 Cars in 2018 Cash For Scrap Cars 3562 3285 Car Removal 1095 6935 Car Recycling 2190 4745 Auto Wrecker 2042 2295 Table 1.

A pie chart of the types of services most used by consumers in the year 2018 A lot of car owners said they would be willing to give their car off to someone who would be willing to dispose of it with proper care. WIth the excessive research and the Global Warming Scare, car owners in Brisbane have started to get more careful with their choices of disposal. After all, nobody wants to see their beautiful country ruined with junk cars and scrap vehicles.   “We’ve seen a sharp rise in the number of cars that we receive each day, on an average, for car recycling and wrecking. It makes us very proud that what started with a collection of maybe an odd one or two cars every day in 2014, has risen up to about an average of  50 scrap cars in the Brisbane region. That’s how we define success, through retention of customers and constant referrals.”, said Samir, who has been the operations head for Swift Cash for Cars since their inception.   With the celebration of the fifth year of Swift Cash for Cars Services and on gaining popularity almost immediately after starting the business, the Senior Management said that the success of the business completely depends on the customers. ‘All of our customers give us good reviews. We make sure we ask them for feedback because it helps us grow and alter our car removal process in Brisbane for more convenience.”   The addition of ‘free paperwork’ as one of the wide range of services available to old car sellers in Brisbane happened only after a few months of operation. SCC officials claim that when the company realized that paperwork was a major inconvenience for the car sellers in Brisbane, they immediately took the opportunity to offer this add-on. On the kind of car removals services they provide in Brisbane, one of the customers said, “I was struggling to sell my car. I wanted instant cash payment but also wanted the car to be picked up on a weekend. These guys were very understanding and accommodating - they agreed to everything I wanted. Honestly, their service quality was commendable and very surprising.”     The rise in the popularity of such car removal services is making the environment happy along with the car owners who never thought they would be able to sell a junk car for cash. It seems like a win-win situation for the old car sellers of Brisbane and the neighboring suburbs.  Swift Cash for Cars is a premium car removal service in Brisbane that provides free services for car removal. They have become a popular driving force for car owners in Brisbane who want to get rid of their cars.  They buy cars, trucks, vans, utes, SUVs, etc. They buy vehicles in all conditions, including damaged cars, abandoned vehicles,  accidental cars and vans, etc. Swift Cash for Cars also operates as a car wrecker and scrap car dealer in Brisbane. This gives them the opportunity to use old and unwanted vehicles optimally.  Sydney reinforces its position as Australia’s automated vehicle mecca 2019-02-27T23:49:39Z sydney-reinforces-its-position-as-australia-s-automated-vehicle-mecca The nation’s peak driverless vehicle industry collective says a commitment by the New South Wales Government to host a national Centre of Excellence and a world-leading summit later this year demonstrates a strong commitment that puts the state at the leading edge of innovation and reinforces that it is well and truly open for business. Under an agreement struck between Transport for NSW and the Australia and New Zealand International Driverless Vehicle Initiative (ADVI), the state will host what is expected to be the biggest automated vehicle exhibition and trade show ever seen in Australia in October 2019.  ADVI Executive Director, Ms Rita Excell, said the strong show of support by the NSW Government and Transport for New South Wales demonstrates their forward-thinking in transport technologies and will go a long way to address Australia’s slippage in automated vehicle readiness rankings recently released. “ADVI and our partners are very excited about this opportunity to align more closely with the work being undertaken in NSW to ensure the focus moves beyond limited trials and deployments to achieving true commercialisation of this technology as already seen in other parts of the world,” Ms Excell said. “This new collaboration takes the introduction of automated vehicles onto our roads to the next level and is sure to attract national and global attention. In October 2019, the world’s focus is expected to turn on Sydney when it hosts the biggest automated vehicle event ever to be held in Australia. Ms Excell said previous international driverless vehicle summits have attracted all of the world’s leading automated shuttle manufacturers and other industry leaders, and AVDI looks forward to bringing its industry partners to Sydney and inviting them to put their driverless vehicle innovations on display for the world to see. “Transport for New South Wales has an ambitious and comprehensive program of works in place to best prepare the state for a world where driverless vehicles share the road, and they have ensured that this technology is at the very heart of its long-term transport vision – and ADVI is pleased at the opportunity to be part of that exciting journey,” she said. “Future Transport 2056 is the first Strategy of its kind focused on harnessing the rapid advancement of driverless technology and innovation across NSW’s transport system to transform the user experience, improve communities, and boost economic performance.” ### About the Australia and New Zealand Driverless Vehicle Initiative (ADVI) ADVI is the peak body that spans the wide ecosystem of driverless vehicles in Australia and New Zealand. With a membership of more than 120 leading organisations across a wide range of sectors, ADVI offers a unique opportunity for partners to collaborate with Governments, Industry and researchers, to position Australia and New Zealand amongst the world leaders in the development and deployment of driverless technology.

The Australia and New Zealand International Driverless Vehicle Initiative (ADVI) believes that Australia’s fall from a ranking of 14th to 15th is unacceptable, sparking the need for a much closer look at what other countries are doing to achieve higher rankings to get the nation moving back in the right direction. ADVI Executive Director, Ms Rita Excell, said with the connected and autonomous vehicle industry now globally recognised as the “new economy”, sitting on the sidelines waiting for an economic boom to come to Australia is likely to see further slipping behind the rest of the world and important economic and safety opportunities missed. “In a short space of time Australia has gone from being on the international radar as a leader, to a country that risks being marginalised as it slips further into AV obscurity. Now is the time for leadership and positive action to address these concerns,” she said. “Australia needs to broaden well beyond the current focus on short-term driverless shuttle deployments. In the US, it is now a decade since Google first launched its self-driving car project. In late 2018 we saw Waymo officially start its commercial deployment of a self-driving car service in Phoenix. Smaller start-ups like May Mobility and have moved beyond deployment trials and are now running revenue-generating shuttle services.” Ms Excell said in many ways AV technology is the 21st-century gold rush, with an industry estimated to add $7 trillion to the global economy and potential to save hundreds of thousands of lives in coming decades. “If Australia stays asleep at the wheel for much longer we can wave goodbye to securing our fair share of that prize on offer. We have already seen the end of vehicle manufacturing in this country, and the fast-moving AV tech sector can go a long way to filling that gap left behind – but Australia must stop sitting on its hands and waiting for others to first make a move,” Ms Excell said. “Let’s have greater focus on our strengths and better leverage our points of difference. The nation is the world’s largest net exporter of lithium, we have the 4th largest pension market with AUD$2.9 trillion under management providing strong investment capital, we have as estimated 7000 world-class vehicle engineers who have lost their jobs and are looking for new opportunities, and we have abundant key resources including sunlight, cobalt, copper, graphite, nickel,” she said. “Those strengths can be harnessed. Now is the time to broaden our focus beyond the US and UK and have a more meaningful look at some of the market-leading developments right on our doorstep – in particular Singapore, which emerged as second in world and first in Asia in its readiness to adopt driverless cars.”  A recent report by KPMG International found Singapore as the top-ranking country in terms of policy and consumer acceptance, and second in infrastructure, reflecting its government's efforts to position the country as a centre for autonomous vehicles, and including the 2017 launch of the Centre of Excellence for Testing & Research of Autonomous Vehicles at Nanyang Technological University as a technology test bed. ### About the Australia and New Zealand Driverless Vehicle Initiative (ADVI) ADVI is the peak body that spans the wide ecosystem of driverless vehicles in Australia and New Zealand. With a membership of more than 120 leading organisations across a wide range of sectors, ADVI offers a unique opportunity for partners to collaborate with Governments, Industry and researchers, to position Australia and New Zealand amongst the world leaders in the development and deployment of driverless technology. ADVI’s education, advocacy and demonstration efforts help to inform and raise awareness, encourage community acceptance, and ensure understanding of the economic, environmental and lifestyle benefits of driverless vehicles.   How Metro Car Removal Improved Its Google Rating To A Near Perfect Score 2019-02-12T01:02:55Z how-metro-car-removal-improved-its-google-rating-to-a-near-perfect-score Sydney’s leader in car removal services, Metro Car Removal, knows that there is always room for improvement – and this reflects in their client ratings online, which have seen a steady increase over the years.

Unlocking the Power of the VIN Number 2019-02-09T12:07:52Z unlocking-the-power-of-the-vin-number Whether we are tracking our heart rate on our new Apple Watch or checking our energy consumption through our Nest Thermostat, we are able to discover new insights about ourselves and our behavior in life. That said, one of the devices that we most frequently use still contains hidden information. Often, that hidden information is used against us and can potentially cost us thousands of dollars. What we are talking about here is information about a car that you want to purchase. Specifically, we’re discussing used cars that you may discover at a dealership or even a vehicle that you may consider buying from a friend or acquaintance. In these circumstances, it is often the case that the seller of the vehicle has much more inside information than you. They can then use this information to their advantage. For instance, they can cover up a potential accident involving the vehicle or can even roll back miles on the vehicle’s odometer. Walking up to the car, it is extremely difficult or essentially possible to get a sense of the vehicle’s background. Having said this, you can turn the odds into your favor. By finding the vehicle’s vehicle identification number (“VIN”) and using a service like to search the vehicle’s history, you can be much more confident when purchasing a used vehicle—regardless of the seller. VIN Numbers So what is as VIN number exactly? Simply put, it is your vehicle’s DNA. From the moment that your vehicle was manufactured, it was given a unique identifying number. Depending on the car, the VIN number may be located in different areas. For instance, it is often found on the dashboard (beneath the driver’s side corner of your windshield), but it can also be found on the driver’s side door (underneath the latch). Once you find a vehicle’s VIN number, you’re led to the most important question: what can I do with it? By locating the vehicle’s VIN number, you can find a wealth of history on the vehicle’s history. One of the best ways to find a vehicle’s history is by visiting an online VIN number check service like carVertical. Upon inputting the vehicle’s VIN number on carVertical, you can find information like whether the vehicle has been registered in databases of stolen cars, whether the vehicle has been in any accidents or has suffered any damage, or whether there are any manufacturing faults with the vehicle. As for carVertical itself, it provides some additional, unique information, like whether the car’s odometer has been artificially rewound. The company also recently announced a partnership with GPSWOX that will design and implant OBD tracker devices. Implanted into any vehicle, the tracker will act as a virtual odometer by checking parameters like GPS coordinates, battery level, or engine status. carVertical is just one service in the marketplace. Having said this, armed with a vehicle’s VIN number, you can be more confident that the vehicle you are purchasing is truly what the seller is representing. When you are approaching the seller of a vehicle, you can make it known that you completed some research on the vehicle and, if applicable, know about some of its checkered history. Putting this information on the table, you may be in a better negotiating position to get a discount on the vehicle—or pass it up entirely. While the ultimate choice is yours, it never hurts to prepare, and researching a vehicle’s VIN number will prepare you for whatever comes your way. Skepticism Is Your New Friend While we would all like to believe that what we see in our daily lives, it pays to be skeptical when purchasing a used car. Like other areas of our life, the data is out there on nearly every vehicle. You just simply need to put in some time to find that data and exploit it to your advantage. Using a service like carVertical can help you save both time and money in the future. Even if you are purchasing a used vehicle from a trusted friend, we recommend that you at least leverage the power of the VIN number. You may discover something that you may not have expected. And let’s be honest: it is better to discover this hidden information before you spend thousands of dollars on a used car. Ultimately, the choice is yours. But it pays to be skeptical.

The new platform, MOOV, enables Australian SMEs to view and compare vehicle specifications and costs, see financing options at a glance, and order the vehicle. SMEs can now do this all online at their leisure, wherever they are, reducing common frustrations with acquiring a vehicle. “Australia is home to 2.1m[1] SMEs and sole traders, many of which need a simple and reliable way to acquire vehicles; MOOV was created specifically for those companies as they simply don’t have the time to visit dealers to compare vehicles or wait in call centre queues to discuss available financing options,” said Mary Moran, General Manager – Business Solutions, ORIX Australia. “By moving the entire process online, SMEs can reduce the hassle involved in the traditional vehicle buying process, while benefiting from ORIX’s fleet expertise and nationwide fleet-buying power.” MOOV provides a range of financing options including finance lease, operating lease, business vehicle loan or buying outright. Leasing provides SMEs with cash flow predictability and may free up capital that can be better invested elsewhere in the business. Regardless of the financing option selected, associated vehicle related expenses, such as fuel, tolls and scheduled maintenance, can be bundled together with the lease payments into a single monthly itemised invoice for convenience and transparency. “We want to provide a more efficient experience for all of our SME customers,” said Moran. “Recent news of tightening credit conditions may lead them to consider financing options beyond traditional sources. The flexibility of our MOOV platform, backed with our expertise in fleet solutions, provides SMEs with an easy and transparent way to explore flexible financing options to meet tomorrow’s challenges, which for many SMEs, includes a thorough revaluation of what mobility actually means to their business.” <ENDS> About ORIX Australia Corporation Limited ORIX is a global diversified financial services organisation listed on both the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE: IX) and Nikkei 225 (TYO: 8591).

The industry has been rapidly rising throughout the second half of this decade, and happily so. The industry has proven to be a boon to the landfills that were being constantly filled with metallic waste. An actual upside to the emergence of the scrap car removal industry is that it has become an unpredicted, yet essential part of the circular economy. All of their car’s parts are being reused and recycled by Cash for Car Scrap.A spokesperson from the company mentioned that the company was grateful for the development in banking as it had made their work much easier for them. Bank payments are a handy solution to the recurring issues that occur with transactions with customers. “The customers find it extremely convenient as well, and it’s much faster for us these days than it used to be. With our prompt services, faster banking only enhances our performance. It’s looking better!” said the spokesperson from Cash for Car Scrap. Sydney-siders are increasingly moving towards owning private transport and buying more vehicles. There has been a major increase in cars on the streets of Sydney in the past decade and has resulted in an increase in the number of cars being sold as well. With more of the youth following the ‘Sell your car in the 5th year”, car buyers are targetting them as well. “Initially people would only sell a car when they thought it wasn’t as functional anymore. Now they sell it whenever they want to because of the multitude of car buyers in the market. They know it will sell.” says Jeff from Cash for Car Scrap. Cash for Car Scrap has been functional in Sydney for the last 6 years. In these 6 years, the company claims to have scrapped or recycled about 5000 cars every year. They have also mentioned an obvious increase in the number that they deal with every year. With a better set of infrastructure and an increase in the number of prospective buyers, the industry expects even better opportunities in the future. They also have more expectations from the development of infrastructure in ways that make it even easier for them to function. According to a recent encounter with Cash for Car Scrap, they seem to be expecting to expand their business with the hope of more facilities in the near future. For further media information visit: Cash for Car Scrap is one of Sydney’s oldest car removal service that has a been inclusive of accepting all vehicle categories to recycle.
