Nick Flaskas and the friendly team at Brad Garlick Ford hosted our November event at their fantastic new showroom. The star of the show was the new Mustang – with a twelve month wait on delivery, it’s so popular. Or it was, until a visit from Henry Ford to officially open the new showroom took the limelight.

With a comfortable new waiting room for service, online service bookings, free wi-fi and office facilities for service customers, and loan cars available, Brad Garlick Ford offers you the best service package in Sydney for your Ford. We loved the new car showrooms too, with one dedicated to fleet customers and one for retail.

Tony Abboud, RBF President, welcomed our 2017 Board, newly voted in half an hour before the event commenced.
