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.

Harry Haig's very unassuming looking Holden HT sleeper sedan ironing out
the bugs at Heathcote Park Raceway. The car is powered by a big block 500ci
Chevy V8 engine.

10-second LS1 Street Commodore built in 2 weeks
Mark Sass has transformed this once V6 nugget VX Holden Commodore into a
tough 10-second street car in a mere two weeks. The 3.8L V6 was ditched in
favour of a 346ci LS1 engine, with the only internal change being a Nitrous spec camshaft. Other modifications
include a 200hp Nitrous system, FAST
intake manifold, Holden 3.7:1 LSD rear end (still retains factory IRS) and
a turbo400 3spd transmission.
Mark drove the car to Calder Park on skinny MT 235 Drag Radials, ran a
solid 10.3-second pass and drove home, the car's best MPH was 133mph.
2JZ wake up call - Holden sleeper
This Commodore is a bit of a surprise packet thanks to a stock internal
Toyota 2JZ turbo engine conversion.
Other additions include a To4z turbo,
injectors, Wolf 500 EFI and a full manual Ford C4 transmission.
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.
JETV6 Holden Commodore
Jim's turbocharged V6 Commodore proves
you don't need an LS1 to go fast. The car has run well into the 9s
previously but this time out Jim raced the car in full street trim on
98-octane. Powered by a 4.2L stroker engine, Boost comes from a Garrett turbo and Delco EFI.
