Lights, camera, traction!

Engage 4×4 is a unique eye-catching high-quality magazine created in Australia and the United States. The captivating magazine intuitively taps into the zeitgeist’s burgeoning all-wheel-drive-as-a-classic movement — celebrating the resurrection and reimagination of iconic 4x4s, investigating the latest and greatest all-paw traction devices, and, most importantly, chatting with the hands behind their wheels. This epic magazine is all about the ride, the destination and the experience. Sit back, relax and then get out there and go adventuring!

Colin is an electronics engineer who was involved with data communications for over 25 years, and has always had a passion for sports cars. His first car was a brown 260Z, which he thought was very cool but was wrong.

He has built a car (GT40 Replica), restored and raced cars, and is currently the Vice President of the Sunshine Coast Motorsport Club. He particularly likes the technical side of anything automotive and justifies spending too much money on cars by calling them art.
