We thought the engine bay of Damien Emery’s roadster was just so sexy, we couldn’t resist using it as our cover shot for this edition. Dig a little deeper however and you’ll find a really neat story behind this old timey hot rod that was started in the 50s, bought by Damien’s father in the 80s, and finally finished by Damien with time left to show the old man.

Chevy guys will dig the LS-powered 1955 Nomad in this issue, plus there’s a slammed F-1 pickup with plenty of style and a 1947 Cadillac from Sweden. Not dirty enough for you? Then Ben Love’s nailhead-powered A Model sideway on the skid pad should get you excited.

Thanks to Norm Hardinge from Aussie Desert Cooler for giving us his take on DLRA Speedweek this year. We also check out the ASRF Blue Lake Nationals at Mt Gambier, the Kustom Nats from Phillip Island, and take a tour of Toowoomba Rod and Custom. Featured artist in this edition is Micah Claycamp, plus we take a look at Brisbane-based singer/songwriter Paddy McHugh.
