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.
13s For $1300 - Project Bluebird - Episode 17
We take Project Bluebird, our $1300 race car, to Heathcote Raceway again to
see how it goes on the quarter mile after the lastest round of tweaks. The
budget still stands at $1249 and with two bottles of Nitrous at the ready we're trying for a 12sec
pass. Will we make it? Watch and see.
Jet Powered Van Fires Things Up
Crank up the volume for this one. This jet powered van not only puts on a
good fire show but it also hauls arse down the track at Heathcote.
Unfortunately there was no time recorded but it looks pretty damn fast.
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.
KRANKY Burns Down Kandos - Burnout Fire!!
We've seen plenty of burnouts end with a fire but we've never seen one
start with a fire. Rodney Waters HQ sedan goes up in flames right from the
start at Kandos. It's crazy insane.
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.
1000HP Ratrod Pick-up Fries the Tyres And Transmission
It's been a while since we've seen Denis Maloney's RatRod Dodge puick-up at
a competition and that's because it was getting this new beast of an
engine. Denis has just fitted this 1000hp+ 410ci Chrysler small block,
complete with methanol injection. It's a crazy beast and more than a little
scary. Halfway through the burnout you could tell the auto wasn't really
happy and the back wheels weren't spinning they way they should have been,
then the flames started and while I haven't confirmed this, I wouldn't be
surprised if it was trans fluid causing the fire. Hopefully he'll get it
all sorted soon.
Performance Car Mania 2013
Scotty's Garage 2000th Video!!!
All the crazy action from Performance Car Mania 2013. With three days of
cruising, burnouts, powerskids, Dyno and more, it's a great
event and this year there were almost500 entrants so it was busy as hell.
Summernats 26 - Day Four
The action was hot on and off the track today. My plan was to check out
lots more than I did on Day four at Summernats but with other duties I
ended up missing more than I got. Sorry about the lack of show cars, and
cruising etc. The rain certainly put a damper on the nights activities with
the PPG Supercruise being cancelled, but they still had the fireworks and
finished off with Rose Tattoo.
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
Awsome wheelstand - Black RX7
Check out the wild wheelstand from this black RX7 at WSID. Awesome!
Therte's two different wheelstands, make sure you watch both.
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
Summernats 25 - Day One
Okay, so it's not actually day one because Summernats hasn't officially
started, but the cars are rolling through the gates in prepartion for
tomorrow when things really kick off. Some cool cars were coming through
scrutineering this afternoon, and unfortunately I couldn't film them all.
But I did manage to catch up with Rob Godfrey and his Summernats & SMOTY
winning TOYTON. It's back with a new donk and a few surprises.
Sorry about the dark video at the start, I though the new camera would be
better than that in low light. Oh well, another lesson learned. Come back
tomorrow and check out all the action from Thursday.
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.

Australia's Quickest Nitrous Car - Wilson/Kryger Camaro
Edit: It's been pointed out there might be a couple of quicker Nitrous cars in Australia but regardless this car
is pretty impressive so I'll let the title stand.
I'm pretty sure this is Australia's quickest Nitrous car, although if I'm wrong someone will
let me know.
With a monster motor and massive gas kit the car runs some seriously quick
times considering it's only on 10.5 rubber. It's still early days for the
black Camaro, owned by
Johnny Wilson and Simon Kryger, who knows how fast they'll get it going?
