The 1937 Ford Club Coupe on the cover of this month’s Cruzin has enjoyed multiple personality changes and thousands of miles at the hands of the Hughes family in Tasmania. They’ve nurtured it for more than 30 years and its recent makeover is tasteful and functional as it continues to serve. But if glamour is your thing, you’ll be enamoured by Dan Appleby’s 1972 Buick Riviera, a truly stunning mild custom from end to end with an intriguing story to match.

Like the Hughes’ ’37, we also examine the history of Dave and Cindy Key’s Aussie-born 1934 Ford roadster, eyeball the old-timey ’34 pickup of a next generation rodder, then head to the USA to examine Richard Tupper’s rodded 1953 Renault!

But wait, there’s more! Dale Haberfield tags along at Test Run #1, Sydney’s own reliability run for truly traditional hot rods, then we head further south to Viking Hot Rods for a look at what’s in the shop. Then we trade our t-shirts for tuxedos not really) for our first ever visit to the Motorclassica Concours.

If you enjoy a flash man cave, then you’ll enjoy the PENCA Shed in Perth where Larry Grossman’s incredible artwork is featured from wall-to-wall. Featured musician is Sarah Gayle Meech, and Trade Alley showcases the latest and greatest from our trusted supporters. Don’t forget to check out the massive Christmas gift guide!
