FOUR generations of the Huther family have been providing service to the community from their Wonthaggi workshop, which is something of a local institution.
Firmly entrenched in the history of Wonthaggi, the South Gippsland Motors workshop was originally an old blacksmith’s shop, before being renovated and extended during the Second World War.
“The business has been here since 1939, and we’ve been involved with Ford since 1940,” said Geoff Huther, the third generation of Huther family to be running the business.
Now mainly focusing on parts and service, South Gippsland Motors is still operating from the original premises on Graham Street.
As we head into winter and the weather begins to cool considerably, it is a good idea to get your tyres and brakes checked, to ensure that you are prepared for wet and slippery conditions on the road.
Geoff and the team at South Gippsland Motors will be happy to help you with any of your motoring and service needs.
It’s what they’ve been doing since 1939.
“It’s the same name; the same family business that it’s always been,” Geoff said.
“There have been four generations of my family here now. From my grandfather who started it all, to my brother’s sons who now work here. I guess after I’d spent 20 years here, I knew I wouldn’t be anywhere else!”
