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 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 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?
