Now that they’ve finally crucified JC, you might be worried about your petrol fume fix. The Shifting Gear exhibition is here to help – at the NGV until 12 July.

Shifting Gear: Design, Innovation and the Australian Car traces the development of the family car from its earliest form, as a steam-powered ‘horseless carriage’, through to its present-day role as a major design object and highly refined and efficient means of transport. It presents the stories behind the development of some of the great Australian vehicles and reveals the designers who styled them. It also considers the significant contribution Australian designers and engineers have made, and continue to make, to the car industry through specialist design capacity and expert knowledge.
