I can sum up most of the contents of this edition in one sentence – Four old Fords, one tough Mopar and a sh#tload of Shoebox Chevrolets. With a little tweaking, you could work that into a country and western song!

Of course each of those old Fords is unique in its own way, from Ron Hobbs’ exquisite 1934 coupe, to Rod Liefman’s ex-California hot rod survivor ’40 tudor, to Flatout Frank’s historic Aussie built A roadster, and our cover car, Gav Cass’s muscular ’36. Then there’s that neat Hemi Plymouth…

We hang out at the Tri-Five Chevy Nationals, America’s biggest 55-56-57 Chevy event, and back home we take a stroll around the Queensland Hot Rod and Street Machine Spectacular. We visit Summit Racing in Ohio, tune into the Wild Wax Combo from Denmark, and spotlight Aussie Illustrator, Mark Sheard.

Make sure you’ve got a copy by your side for the Christmas break. Grab it at your local, or order it online at

It's only fair to share…
