WE CHECKED out Steve Barry’s razor-sharp SS Torana hatchback at Street Machine Summernats 29. Steve owned the hatch as a young bloke in the 1970s, but traded it on a V8 VB Commodore when they were all the rage. Thirty-odd years later he now has another one, albeit a lot nicer (and quicker) than any hatch that rolled out of the factory from new!

Editor Telfo caught up with Steve in the Top 60 hall at Summernats to chat about the Torana and the build process.
