The attraction of steel is hard to ignore, especially when it comes to hot rodding. Rod Collins is no enemy of repro hot rods, but an unchopped, 1933 Ford coupe was always on his bucket list and the stunning black five window on the cover of this month’s edition is the result. Sharing the space is Anthony Spadavecchia’s XL Falcon ute; old skool on the outside but with a nice surprise under the hood.

We also take a look at a nostalgic T bucket which has remained mostly unchanged from the 1960s, a beautiful 1939 Ford tudor that’s taken 15 years to come to fruition, and a super slammed 1959 El Camino from California which is just plain cool.

We visited the ShowCars Melbourne PPG Showdown for their 10th anniversary event in March and bring you our favourites, we also take a tour of Eric Parker’s sprawling Chevy collection in Nuriootpa, South Australia. Finally, we chat with Rohan Hutson of Australian Auto Air about business past and present.

We’ve got our usual ensemble of regular columns; Norm Hardinge fills us in the Big Knob Racing roadster’s performance at DLRA SpeedWeek, we look at the artwork of James Owens, and Velocity Brown and the Hot Rods are our featured band this issue.

It's only fair to share…
