Bust out the sunglasses boys and girls because this is one colourful edition! The goal was to gather a collection of rods and customs with far out paint jobs but we ended up with much more than that. Our featured vehicles in this edition are either painted, wrapped or just overloaded with special effects, in any case they’re wild! Every family has one black sheep, so there’s one of those in there too.

We start off with a double feature, Shane Cronin’s 1946 Chevy hauler and savagely chopped ’34 Ford coupe – what a duo. The Double Jacks Garage 1939 Dodge Hearse is not only creative, but has just returned from a Tour of Duty in the USA, finishing up in Vegas. It’s a journey well worth reading about! Richard Townsend’s 1933 Chevy is an inspiring lesson in goal setting, and we just had to put together a small piece on Dana Hinkle’s Model A tudor which is pure excess, but in a good way. It was tagged for our centre poster, but one photo was just not enough.

Yes, that’s a motorcyle with three wheels, a rare Harley Davidson servi-car which has been customised to a level that only West Aussie, Ben Forster can fathom. No, it’s not the black sheep we mentioned – that tag belongs to Adam Kalb’s black-on-black-on-black-on black, turbocharged 1965 Pontiac.

We also bring you extended coverage of the Yokohama Rod and Custom Show, the Mooneyes crew always putting on top event. There’s some last minute news on the 30th Anniversary DLRA SpeedWeek, not too mention the ASRF Regional Nats at Goulburn this Easter, plus we spotlight Finnish pinstriper, Pekka, and review the latest CD from Aussie trio, The Linelockers.

It's only fair to share…
