Formula One World Drivers' Champion Alan Jones who went through the season
undefeated driving his Porsche Cars Australia Porsche 935. His closest
on-track rival was multiple Bathurst and Australian Touring Car Champion
Peter Brock driving the Bob Jane owned 6.0L V8 Chevrolet Monza.
Running From The Guns
Australian B grade movie from the late '80s. Plot, acting and dialogue were
all pretty bad. It featured rising star Jon Blake who ended up with
horrific injuries while working on his next film. The good guys drove a
real Shelby Cobra, COB 6043 I think is it's serial number. There's some
great Aussie cars in it too.

This week on the show, we catch up with Ian Algie who campaigned a unique
5-litre V8 Alfetta in the sports sedan classes of the 1980s. We track
Algie's car down in a collectors shed and take a good look at the sports
sedan racing that once went down at Baypark, Pukekohe and Manfeild. Our
feature car this episode is an awesome Cobra Daytona replica that has spent
8 years in the build before reaching its immaculate conclusion. We also
head down to Meremere for the Mopar Mayhem Club Day and check out some of
the muscular metal on display.
