A companion feature to "The Model Garage" stories was the collection of  "Helpful Hints for the Motorist" evolving into the "Hints from the Model Garage" which lasted until the end of the series in 1970.

These innovative solutions to problems were submitted by ingenious readers and showed the type of solutions that Gus was known for.
