If you appreciate finely detailed customs that are driven on the street, then Stewart Parris’ 1955 Chevy Bel Air on the cover of this edition will be right up your driveway. It’s a beautiful blend of show class bling and hearty horsepower that many aspire to, and done on a working man’s budget.
While we’re living in the fifties, we check out a ’56 F100 dually from Tasmania, with some trick body mods to boot. Fast forward to 1964 and we look over a Plymouth Fury packing a 426 Wedge. But if hot rod coupes are the way to your heart, we’ve got a tubbed ’34, a street neat ’35, and a California deuce, all a little special in their own way.
We also did a fly-by of this year’s Valla Park Rod Run, we look at Port Fairy Rod Run which will be on us again soon, and head to the USA for the Syracuse Nationals at the New York State Fairgrounds, one of the East Coast’s biggest events, and home to the weird and the wonderful!
Meanwhile in our regular spots, Aussie Norm fills us in on the Redneck Express belly tank, we look at the works of American artist Bob Kramer, Paul checks out the Satan’s Holiday vintage music compilation, and we’ve got some more mad models.
