Rare Spares Launch Major ‘Suite of Brands’ Marketing Initiative

Rare Spares have just launched a major marketing program that will encompass all aspects of the Rare Spares brand and explore the role it plays in each and every stage of a classic car restoration project.

The new initiative, called the Rare Spares Suite of Brands, has already launched through two new print advertisements in Street Machine Magazine, Unique Cars Magazine and Australian Muscle Car Magazine, and a series of brand new TV advertisements will be on a screen near you soon.

The new print ads represent why Rare Spares really is more than just a part in your project. The ads outline how Rare Spares, across its various brands including Holden Restoration Parts, Ford Restoration Parts, Nasco and Shed Talk, are involved in each and every part of Australia’s classic car culture, from Summernats, the Touring Car Masters and car club events, through to sponsorship of motoring racing legends John Bowe and Cameron McConville. 

Supplying tens of thousands of parts to thousands of car restorers and hundreds of car clubs across Australia and New Zealand is an incredible success story, considering Rare Spares’ humble beginnings as a part time business 38 years ago. We wanted to highlight this success and tell the story of what Rare Spares has evolved into through the Suite of Brands marketing campaign.

21. August 2013 12:13 by Rare Spares in Rare Spares  //  Tags: , , ,   //   Comments (0)

On Saturday the 17th August, Rare Spares held their Annual General Meeting attended by Rare Spares Distributors from across Australia and New Zealand.

Every year for close to 30 years, Rare Spares have recognised the efforts of their distributor network by presenting a deserving distributor with the Distributor of the Year (DOTY) Award. The award recognises a Rare Spares distributor’s dedication, support, improvement and desire to strive for excellence.

The winner of the Rare Spares DOTY award is honoured with a framed plaque at the Annual General Meeting, and their store is featured in a national full page advertisement in Street Machine Magazine.

This year, for the first time ever, two distributors were honoured with the award, as both deserved equal recognition for their efforts.

Rare Spares Perth won this prestigious award for the second consecutive year; a testament to their hard work and commitment. The second award was presented to Rare Spares, Wodonga, who were overjoyed to be recognised for their contribution to the brand.

“It was a great feeling to win Distributor of the Year. This is the first year that we have won, and it’s great to have our hard work pay off. I think it is a great motivator for staff as well, to know that we can really excel in a number of areas,” said Glenn Coughlan, Rare Spares Wodonga.

Brent O’Dempsey who accepted the award on behalf of Rare Spares Perth, said “We’re very proud to have won the Distributor of the Year award for the second year in a row, and thank our staff for all their hard work and contributions.”

“We are happy to support Rare Spares and be part of an organisation that puts a lot of time and effort into their distributors. Winning this prestigious award for the second year in a row is an honour, and we hope to continue this winning streak with our performance over the next year.”

Rare Spares are grateful for their strong distributor network across Australia and New Zealand and congratulate Rare Spares Perth and Rare Spares Wodonga for their equally outstanding performance over the past year.
