It’s easy to forget that four doors make great hot rods, blending classic styling with unrivalled practicality, so in this edition, we take a good look around, under and inside John & Kerryn’s 1934 Ford sedan. Speaking of practicality, we also examine Neil Rushton’s 1932 Ford roadster, one of a mere handful of Dearborn Deuce true convertible roadsters down under, known for their practicality with a fold away roof and wind up windows. One step to the left, and Lynn Bird’s 1932 Ford 3W is just a good old fashioned hot rod, Red Ram Hemi and more!

Did someone say Hemi? That leads us to another American feature, the 1966 Plymouth Belvedere 1 of Bob Mazzolini, far from your average old man’s car. But not to be outdone is local drag racer Paul ‘Paddy’ Moneley who couldn’t help but dial up the power on an old ’57 Chevy streeter thanks to years spent running the quarter mile at lightning speeds. And if you’re still yearning for more hot rod haulers after our last edition, then here’s one more – Dale Huggard’s 1957 Commer COE, pieced together from little more than a beat up cab.

We also visit Yamba Rod Run, ChromeFest, and the all-out fun Dead Man’s Curve weekend in New Jersey! James Owens updates us on his latest artistic creations, we listen to the retro sounds of Kimmi Bitter, and we showcase another handful of cool miniatures from our readers.

It’s all in Cruzin #275, out now!
