Along with the new millennium came the creation of a beaut little mechanical and restoration shop in downtown Brendale, an industrial hub on Brisbane's northside.

Since the early days of opening J&M Mechanical Services, business has steadily grown with the assistance of owners John and Madonna Ambrosi. The business has recently relocated into new larger premises at 1/15 Strathwyn Street.

Experience is aplenty with John having 20 years in the mechanical and restoration fields. J&M Mechanical Services specialise in early Fords and Mustangs, hot rods and customs, but John will try his hand at fixing nearly anything mechanical that runs on fuel as well as doing restorations of motor vehicles, from minor repairs to full turn key resto's as per customer requirements.

They can also carry out rego compliancing for imported American cars. Engine building is not a problem for John. He will build to customer requirements, anything from mild to wild. Another speciality at J&Ms is the fitment and reconditioning of transmissions, clutches, steering, 9" differentials and disc brake modifications and conversions. J&M Mechanicals are agents for Drake Mustang and Ford hot rod parts. Drake is the number one American supplier for quality restoration parts. They are slightly dearer than other resto parts, however the fit and lasting quality are far superior.

If you just need your car serviced, John will give it the maintenance the correct way. Or do you have a car that has some problems that need sorting out, such as it doesn't run or perform right? That is were John comes into his own for finding the source of the problem. If all this is not enough, they also have a latest addition called Gasoline Alley, which is the cool old garage setup in the corner of the shop. They stock everything from bullet hole and flame stickers to STP and restoration decals for Ford and Mopar, as well as chrome accessories and performance parts. Supplies are continually expanded with new stuff added regularly.

Being called Gasoline Alley, they obviously buy and sell petrol and oil collectibles, and can also source and offer restoration services and even some parts. Full electronic major card facilities are available as well as mail order facilities on merchandise. Phone Mad for info.


Business hours are 7:30am to 5pm Monday to Friday and Sam to noon on Saturday. They are also happy to just give friendly advice so get down to 4/48 Kremzow Road, Brendale and check out J&M Mechanical Services, more than just a mechanical shop.
