Drive Publishing was formed in the year 2000 by a partnership of three hot rod enthusiasts for the purpose of publishing Cruzin Magazine. The first edition of Cruzin magazine was released in November 2000. The combination of hot rods, American classics, early Australian cars and kustom kulture elements proved popular and Cruzin has grown to become the preferred title for many hot rod enthusiasts and the related industry.
In November 2010, Drive Publishing released the first edition of Gasoline magazine. Gasoline magazine is dedicated to street machines and muscle cars of the chrome bumper era (1949-1979) and was released in response to a growing interest in these models.
Since our inception we have supported other small independent publishers, both local and foreign, by selling and promoting a range of other lifestyle publications. We also proudly support Australian hot rod and classic car clubs and recognise the dedication of those organisations and individuals who regularly donate to worthy causes and work tirelessly to keep our hobby vibrant and fun.
Drive Publishing Pty Ltd is owned and operated by Gavin and Belinda Kelso. Gavin and Belinda are dedicated to the ongoing publishing of Cruzin magazine and are constantly evaluating the content and presentation to satisfy the needs of both readers and advertisers.
