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 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 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.

Muscle Car Racing: We caught up with Shane Moore and his ex Super GT-winning Commodore at Taupo recently, and were amazed with the vehicle. Shane tells us all about it on this week's show.





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 worthy. 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 about.

We caught up with the top alcohol dragster driver who so nearly won the NZDRA Top Alcohol Series Championship this year. From only one season in Supercharged Outlaws which he won, Todd was given the keys to the Vincent family dragster as a 21st birthday present. Todd Vincent the fastest 21 year old in New Zealand.

Jaguar XJ-S Racing
For 1977, the "Group44" racing team had a very successful season in Trans Am with a race car based on the actual production XJ-S chassis and running gear. The team won the series' 1977 drivers' championship cup for Bob Tullius but missed winning the manufacturer's title by two points (only one Jaguar was competing in the Trans-Am series compared to many more Porsche entrants). In 1978, a purpose-built tube-frame "silhouette" style XJS race car was constructed which greatly reduced the weight compared to the full production chassis car campaigned in 1977. This silhouette car had only the production car's roof panel as the sole piece of factory XJS sheetmetal on the car. Group 44 succeeded in again capturing the driver's championship for Bob Tullius and also captured the manufacturer's title as well, by entering Brian Fuerstenau driving the 1977 car at some venues to gain additional manufacturer's points for Jaguar. The silhouette car survived and has surfaced recently in the SVRA historic sports race series. The 1977 factory chassis race car is believed to still be in the hands of Group 44's Bob Tullius. Today the XJS continues to be extensively campaigned in club level motorsport both in the United Kingdom and overseas. Best known of the race series is probably the Jaguar Enthusiasts' Club XJS championship, currently in association with Toyo Tires. Their championship has now been running for over a decade, offering an affordable entry into club motorsport in the UK, and continuing to attract large grids of this unlikely racing car. Cars compete in various states of modification, from barely modified road cars through to full race-specification cars built in homage to the great TWR specials. S011
