YEP, it’s that time of the month – a fresh issue of your favourite mag has just gone on sale, so you best cruise on down to the newsagent and shout yourself one!
Our cover car this month is billed as the world’s toughest ZF Fairlane, and with a 1000hp, blown EFI Windsor poking through the hood, seriously fat rubber and a ground-scraping stance all wrapped up in a street-driven package, we challenge you to find tougher!
We share a great yarn with Mick Curren – the creator of the infamous Terminator HQ Monaro, and founding father of the Australian Pro Street movement. All these years on, Mick’s still tinkering with cars – no surprises there.
We head across the ditch and check out Beach Hop – a week packed with cruising, rockin’ tunes and automotive good times. We also scope out the Holden Nationals from Heathcote Park Raceway, and all the action from Racewars in WA.
If tech is your jam, then you’ll enjoy Chad Atkinson’s feature on swapping a rusty XP coupe body shell onto an EL Falcon chassis and powertrain, and our resident automotive engineer, Dr Tim, talks you through how cubic capacity relates to engine conversions.
Feature cars include a monster fat-blocked HT Prem, a gorgeous XW Falcon, a Whipple-blown, small block powered HZ Holden, a street-fighting first-gen Camaro, and a tough-as-hell VC Valiant. Something for everyone, then!
