Max Kirwan Mazda
Operating since 1946 Max Kirwan Mazda located in Preston is Melbourne’s Premier Choice for buying and servicing your Mazda vehicle.
Max Kirwan Motors was founded by Max Kirwan Snr. who used his Army severance pay to purchase a handful of ex army trucks at an auction in Darwin in 1946. At the time there was a shortage of trucks in Melbourne as most had been moved north to support the war effort.
The only way to get vehicles to Melbourne from Darwin was to either ship them around the West Australian coastline or drive them through the Red centre of Australia. As shipping was very expensive and the drive through the Australian outback was filled with danger most people did not give the idea a second thought.
