I decided to stick my head in for a look at Jamboree 2011 while on holidays in Queensland recently. Cool cars and hot women make this event a mandatory addition to everyone's event list.
There's a couple little editing glitches in the video, but it took so long to render and upload, I decided to let them be.
TOYTON - Unblown to Blown in Five Minutes
Okay, we sped the footage up a little but in all honesty Rob Godfrey went
from an unblown big block to an 8/71 combo in less than 20 minutes. For
those that don't know the car it is one of Australia's top Street Machines,
winning both Street Machine of the year and Summernats Grand Champion. with
the only naturally aspirated 632ci combo it made 1050rwhp and run eights on
the quarter. The new blown 502ci combo is more cruisable, but makes less
power. Looks bloody awesome though.
The girls appeared as soon as Rob fired the car up. Very cool.
Rod Hadfield's BeauTy
For those who don't know Rod, he's on of the most prolific Australian hod
rodder's of our time. He's built and owned more amazing cars than most of
us could dream of. Check out his highly modified '26 T-coupe. It's running
an Ardun headed flathead V8 and a host of cool gear found around the swap
Riverina Screamer Rolls Royce V12 Tractor
Check out this awesome tractor puller, the Riverina Screamer. It's powered
by a Rolls Royce Meteor V12 with twin turbos, EFI and some custom twin cam heads. I've
seen the beast in action and it's awesome, I hope to get along to a tractor
pull comp some time this year and get some video.
R33 Skyline Punches A Rod Out at Gazzanats
There's no doubt that Skylines are decent performance cars but every car
has it's limits - as the owner of this R33 found out at Gazzanats. I've
never seen a nearly complete conrod leave an engine before, usually they're
broken in two.
Harley Wheelstand - Hang on!
This Harley rider got a little more than he bargained for when he launched
at Sydney Dragway recently. He did well to stay on it and then he even got
back into the throttle. Bloody amazing.
SOLID Wins Gazzanats Blown Burnouts
It was a SOLID win from Danny Smith at Gazzanats with his blown small block
Chevy Pick-up. Check out the volume of smoke! It was huge and it had the
crowd screaming for more. With trucks like this it's a wonder we don't see
more pick-ups built as burnout machines.
1TUFSS Makes An Impressive Amount of Smoke
Normally we don't expect much from late model cars but this VE Commodore
impressed a few with the sheer amount of smoke it was producing. It had
smoke coming out of all orifices at Avalon.
Ford Coupe Club of Australia Hardtop Nationals 2011
We take a look at the Ford Coupe Club of Australia Hardtop Nationals. For
those that don't know, these Australian built coupes/hardtops were built
from 1972 through to 1979 across the XA/XB/XC model ranges. The most famous
coupe is probably the Mad Max car used in the first two mad max movies, and
there's a replica of that car featuring in this video. There was also a
coupe that featured in Love The Beast - Eric Bana's ode to his own Falcon
Coupe which he has owned from way before he became famous.
Unfortunately I couldn't fit all the cars in the video but I squeezed a
fair few in, I hope you all enjoy it.
Music in the centre section comes from Kevin MacLeod at

PH5YCO Escort With a NASCAR Engine
Shoving a NASCAR engine into a little Ford Escort is a sure way to have a
good time but with the wet Springnats burnout track it's hard to keep
things under control. Nice revving little machine though.
BEST. POWERSKID. EVER.
I've seen some crazy powerskid action in my time but this Torana takes the
cake. With a big hit of Nitrous and a
heavy right foot this guy smokes the full length of the track in and aesome
display of skill and power.
If you've got a better powerskid then send me a video response.
Ultimate Burnout Challenge 2011
The third annual Ultimate Burnout Challenge was a success with over 100 of
Australia's best burnout machinery doing battle for a chance at the $10,000
first prize. Everyone who is anyone in the burnout scene was there to
compete or check out the action with the top ten from the days competition
shooting it out under lights for the big money. We won't tell you who won,
watch the video for that, but it was well deserved.
Enjoy the video, we've got much more action coming from UBC3 over the
