NZV8TV Ep8 - Trans Am Jaguar XKR, V8 Merc, Chev Camaro, House of Kolor - part 1
More at http://www.v8.co.nz
On Track: Kevin Boveys Trans Am spec Jaguar XKR GT1 car, as seen in NZV8 Issue 41. Kevin built the car from the ground up, and although we arent usually too fond of Euros the car has to be seen to be believed.
Speaking of Euros, we found a V8 powered Mercedes doing laps with the Production Muscle Cars class at Pukekohe.
Its low, loud, tubbed and blown its Tony Etheridges Camaro. The word extreme doesnt really describe this car. Without doubt the Camaro is one of the wildest street cars the country has ever seen.
Kandy My Car: The founder of House Of Kolor paint is on his way to NZ and while he's here he's going to custom paint a car.

NZV8TV Ep5 - 640hp SS Camaro, 725hp Shelby Super Snake, Yankee Haulers - part 1
Part 1: This week's feature car is also the cover car for the next issue of
NZV8 Magazine; Grant Eveleighs stunning 1969 RS/SS Camaro. With a 640hp 540 cubic
inch big block, 5-speed manual, and modern suspension along with a host of
other cool features, Grant's Camaro is without doubt one of
the more complete street cars we have seen in recent times.
Also from the next issue is a 2008 Shelby Super Snake Mustang. With 725hp on tap, the
Shelby is an absolute weapon, and the only one on this side of the globe.
The Yankee Haulers Car Club recently held a drag day at Fram Autolite
Dragway, we went down to see what the Yankee Haulers are all about. While
there we check out a few cool cars such as an SLR5000 Torana, an HQ Holden
and a 69 Camaro
Northern Muscle Cars We were at the latest round of Northern Muscle
Cars just last weekend, and caught up with Craig Stacey and his awesome
1971 AMC Javelin amongst others. Cool old cars, lots of sideways action.
What could be better?

NZV8TV Ep 2 - muscle cars, Beach Hop, Nostalgia drags - Part 2
Central Muscle Cars:
We hit the Taupo Racetrack with Central Muscle Cars and check out the
awesome Mustang of Greg
Honour. Hes managed to win one series, and come second in another, how will
he go in this semi-final round?
Beach Hop: We also head back to Whangamata to enjoy a slightly slower paced
event, the Beach Hop. Between checking out the cars, the bands and the
girls, we catch up with the paint gurus from House Of Kolor and check out
their latest innovation.
Castrol Edge brought Aussie Drag Racing Legends Victor and Ben Bray over
for Beach Hop, and the Nostalgia Drags. We manage to catch up with them at
both events on this weeks show.
Nostalgia Drags: Victor was super impressed with the Nostalgia Drags - he
and son Ben smoke their '57 Chev up the Meremere strip. Watch Dave Goulds
insane Fiat Topolino attempt to jump the guardrails on every pass, nasty
Norris's nostalgia rail wheels up, Paul Hammond's VG Valiant as well as a
great mix of other cars and people from the event.

NZV8TV Ep7 - Corvette GT1 at Taupo, Ford XC Falcon, Ewen Gilmour learns skids, Trans Ams - part 1
More info at http://www.v8.co.nz.
On The Track: GT1 is an anything goes race class. We were at Taupo for the
final round of the 2008/09 season to check out some of the insane
machinery. One car of interest was Grant Brennans Corvette. With its
self-made engine block and heads, Grant's car epitomises the term custom.
Equally as cool, but far less wild is the XC Falcon Coupe of Mike Oldham.
Mikes coupe is one of the better presented vehicles we found at Pukekohe
while watching the Production Muscle Car Series.
Lessons From a Pro: You should all known the name Ewen Gilmour, or Westy as
hes commonly known. But did you know he isnt as good as you would expect at
doing skids? NZV8 Touring Car Driver Dean Perkins takes him to Meremere for
a bit of schooling.
Looking Back: Remember the AMC Javelin of Craig Stacy on the show a
couple of weeks ago? Weve got film of the 1970 American Trans Am racing
series where a very young Roger Penske and driver Mark Donnahue run their
AMC Javelin against the Mustangs and American muscle car
makes that created legend.
Feature Car: We saw a few glimpses of Graeme Metcalfes immaculate 69 Chev
Nova a few weeks back, this week we get the full scoop on this stunning
10-second street carowned by a Ford lover!
NZV8TV Ep 10 - 900hp Hemi-powered Plymouth Road Runner, drag racing, GM car club - part 1
More at http://www.v8.co.nz. This weeks feature car is straight from the
cover of NZV8s 50th issue, a 900hp Hemi-powered Road Runner. Immaculate in
every way and about as powerful as street cars come, this is one feature
car that you won't want to miss. NZV8 Magazine editor Todd Wylie is on
hand, and goes over the car pointing out exactly what makes a cover car
Young Achievers: Last week we bought you the country's fastest 21 year old,
this week its the fastest 24 year old - Morice McMillin and his Chev
powered Funny Car.
Event: If you prefer a bit of a slower pace, we attended the GM Car Club's
annual show to check out a few rides and find out what the GM Club is all
