So who is the best of the best? That’s an argument for somebody else, but for now, we must pay homage to Brenton Dalwood and his 1935 Ford coupe, which has enjoyed unrivalled success at every major event it has been to since late last year. Not bad for a what started out to be a neat streeter! Speaking of neat streeters, we’d happily put Dean Carmody’s 1956 Chevy wagon in our stable, the slammed bowtie a winner in both looks and performance.

For something completely different, we also present Peter ‘Slick’ Lovett’s 1934 Nash coupe, a stunningly elegant hot rod, along with a neat deuce tudor and a Mooneyes-themed Apache pickup, just for fun.

The Sydney Hot Rod & Custom Auto Expo continues to top itself each year and 2022 was no exception. We’ve split our coverage over two editions, and the first part in this issue puts the spotlight on the killer kustoms of the event, a gathering like we’ve never seen before in this country. We also go to the USA for some old fashioned drag racing at the Nitro Revival #4, and take time out at the National Automobile Museum of Tasmania.

We also take a peek at Kim De Brenni’s Triton salt racer, the art work of Scott Fisk, and take in a little R&B music, Texas style.
