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 meets.
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.
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.
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.
