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!

Young Achievers: Speaking of successful racing, we catch up with Anthony Marsh, as seen in the current issue of NZV8 Magazine, Anthony has been having huge success at the dragstrip in the Metalman Dragster. 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 Ep13 - 1950 customised Studebaker, Central Muscle Cars, Chevy Camaro - part 2
More at http://www.v8.co.nz/tv. Chances are its the most customised car you will ever see on our roads. While registered as a 1950 Studebaker, the reality is there are parts off Studebakers of many different ages that have been formed together to create the ultimate delivery. This is one feature car you wont want to miss. Plus, interviews with young racers Shanelle Dobson, Scotty Miller and Goof Sherwin, and we went out to Pukekohe with one of the best presented Central Muscle Cars; Glenn Alinghams big block Camaro. Unfortunately, it wasnt looking so good by the time it got back home.

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.

NZV8TV Episode 1 - Pontiac GTO, Plymouth Cuda, Beach Hop and more - part 1
Beach Hop We send our roving reporter down to check out the biggest nostalgia festival in the Southern Hemisphere: Beach Hop. The cars, the people, the music - we take a look at all the action that this super-sized event encompasses. Feature Car Kevin McGregors stunning Pontiac GTO drag car graces the current cover of NZV8 Magazine, so we send Andy down to the strip to find out what makes this car so special.

Willy White New Zealand's fastest ever drag racer talks to us about the ins and outs of running a nitro funny car. With a best pass of 5.47 @ 264mph, Willy certainly isnt afraid of showing the rest of the nation how things are done. Taylor and Taylor Speaking of drag racing, this years Top Doorslammer Champion Ross Taylor along with son Jason run us through the details of another one of their cars. Although its another 57 Chev, its certainly not as quick as the Taylor And Taylor car we all know and love. Rat Rod While down at the Nostalgia Drags we spied a car that certainly doesnt look like it should be on a drag strip; Neil Surtezs awesome rat rod. This Cadillac flathead powered machine sits its belly on the floor and lifts all four wheels off the ground, making it one serious crowd pleaser. Nostalgia Drags Each year at the Nostalgias a bunch of Aussies are bought over for the locals to go head to head against. We catch up with local drag racer Paul Pins Satler and Aussie John Fleming to watch an epic battle of nostalgia styled front engine dragsters.
