Shannons goes in search of the faces and passion behind the cars that grace its auction blocks in a new series called Driven.

Each episode of the online series is devoted to a single car or bike owner, all of them from different walks of life.

There’s an architect with an eye for design and Porsche 911s, a hot rod enthusiast who travels the country in a 1932 Ford 5-Window Coupe and a garage owner with a passion for rebuilding American muscle cars — and more.

Driven explores the passion that motivates these people, who are invited to tell their story in their own words — what turns them on?

Community and Social Marketing Manager, Stuart Hickman explains the series features classic, modern and modified cars and motorcycles, and highlights passionate individuals who play a key role in the automotive community.

The series is produced and directed by Melbourne Filmmaker Brad Wilson.

“I have been involved with cars from an early age, so it’s been a dream to develop a film series like Driven with a brand like Shannons, shooting amazing rides and bringing to life the unique stories of some very passionate vehicle owners,” he said.

Driven will be featured on the Shannons Club website along with the Shannon Club TV Series and a host other motoring enthusiast articles and videos.

Series explores our 'passion' for cars


Chris Riley has been a journalist for 40 years. He has spent half of his career as a writer, editor and production editor in newspapers, the rest of the time driving and writing about cars both in print and online. His love affair with cars began as a teenager with the purchase of an old VW Beetle, followed by another Beetle and a string of other cars on which he has wasted too much time and money. A self-confessed geek, he’s not afraid to ask the hard questions - at the risk of sounding silly.
