About the Author

<p>Joel Wakely has worked with and raced with cars almost his entire life, owning several significant and some very rare models, including several utes. He knows utes like he knows the back of his hand, and he knows many other passionate ute lovers like himself. In 1958 Joel started his first business venture: a new BP service station. It was here he got involved in a 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. Passion for Utes is his fourth book.</p><br>
