A pioneer of Australian auto publishing is being remembered for not only kick-starting magazines, but an entire culture. The creator of Street Machine and Fast Fours and Rotaries kick-started more than magazines, but an entire culture


The passing of Geoff Paradise has sparked a flood of tributes to a man who lived his dreams and allowed motoring enthusiasts of all ilk to share theirs.

Paradise created a number of influential magazines, including Street Machine, Fast Fours & Rotaries, Performance Street Car, Coach and Bus, Australian Drag Racer and Transport and Trucking Today.

Wheels sends its condolences to Geoff's family and, along with the large number of people his work has touched, remember this great man with both fondness and admiration.
