NZV8TV Ep3 - Nostalgia Drags, Central Muscle Cars, Willy White, doorslammers - Part 1
Central Muscle Cars
We head back to Taupo Motorsport Park and catch up with three of the
leading Central Muscle Car drivers; Paul Urqhart, Shane Wigston and series
founder Steve Hildred.
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
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.
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.
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.
NZV8TV Ep5 - 640hp SS Camaro, 725hp Shelby Super Snake, Yankee Haulers - part 2
Part 2: 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?

1972 Satellite Sebring Plus
This car has had only 6,000 miles put on it in the past 9 years so I've
decided to sell it to someone who can enjoy it as I used to. It's a 400 cu.
in. engine with a 727 automatic, all original panels....what can I say,
it's just sweet.
NZV8TV Episode 1 - Pontiac GTO, Plymouth Cuda, Beach Hop and more - part 1
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
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.

NZV8TV S2 Ep 4 - Father's Day Drags from Meremere, Muscle Car Masters at Eastern Creek - part 2
More at http://www.v8.co.nz/tv. On this show, Father's Day Drags: Over 5000
people attended the annual fathers day Drags for V8 Street machines at Fram
Autolite Dragway Meremere on of course Father's Day.
The top 8 American and Aussie Street registered V8s went through

biggest muscle car event. The Kiwi CMC cars were there to compete in 4
races plus the end of event Trans Tasman Muscle car Challenge. After a
disastrous crash in race 2 which took out 3 of the Kiwi muscle cars it was
back to the track for race 3. Plus we look at some of the legend Aussie
Touring cars of yesteryear that paved the way for the V8 Supercars that run
NZV8TV Ep7 - Corvette GT1 at Taupo, Ford XC Falcon, Ewen Gilmour learns skids, Trans Ams - part 2
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!
