Daniel Gardner once thought that a 1976 Java Green Triumph Spitfire would make
an ideal first car. He was wrong.
The endless evenings fixing it taught him a thing or two about cars though.
While studying for an honours degree in Mechanical Design, Daniel supported his
100-octane fuel habit by working as a BMW technician - a career that lead him
from the UK to Melbourne.
After 10 years on the spanners Daniel hung up his overalls and pursued a career
in the media writing an opinion column for mX as well as reviews for various
automotive and fashion publications – not that you would know to look at him.
Daniel’s inane ranting can also be heard on community radio station JOY
94.9where he hosts Monday’s breakfast show as well as co-presenting motoring
showFender Bender on Saturday afternoons.
Since the day Dan miraculously passed his driving test, many cars have passed
through his garage.
All of them produced more power than the manufacturer intended and most of them
ended up in a hedge.
Daniel joined the GoAuto team in February 2013.
