Luke's VT Commodore is a little different from most. Instant performance has been achieved by swapping the factory 5.7L LS1 in favour of a stock GM Racing 454ci LSX V8 crate engine from the states backed by a Hasty Autos built Powerglide transmission. The car has come alive as a genuine 10-second street car. Best time to date is a 10.60 at 130mph.

1927 Ford: Double-Trouble -- /BIG MUSCLE
• Gordon Tronson
In the world of hot-rodding there are few cars that are going to leave as
big an impression as this - the 1927 Ford Model T custom simply known as
"Double-Trouble". It rides on a custom-built tube chassis that's fabricated
from 1.5-inch tube. Is powered by two 4.6-liter modular V8s from Ford with
four, count 'em, FOUR Superchargers for
an approximate power output of around 1,200 hp. It also utilizes the
rear-end (inboard disc brakes and all) from an early Jaguar. It's a rolling
a Hot Wheels car and a masterpiece of engineering that is sure to make all
your naughty bits tingle.

CHE VT Commodore LS1 Twin Turbo - First pass
Dave and Dale's new VT Commodore drag car hits the track. After only six
weeks in the build it ran four passes ranging between 9.6 and 9.9. The
first run was on 14psi Boost, then
after a few changes between passes, it ran a 1.48 60-foot on 11psi Boost. The car doesn't run any NOS, still
runs a factory alloy block, stock crank and isn't what you'd call a big
dollar build. The rear tyres are 28x9s. For more info head to
