Sparks fly as Ali Saed stands his Chevy powered Capri on the bumper at Sydney Dragway. We're not sure how much damage there was, but they way he runs over the timing boxes at the end of the track shows that not everything was right.
SUBTLE Wins Pro Street Blown at the Street Machine Nationals
It may be SUBTLE by name but Jeremy Callaghan's twin turbo Torana is anything but subtle. Even though
it's not the quickest car in the class the Torana swept all before it
during the Chicago Shootout in Pro Street Blown at the Street Machine
Nationals and then defeeated the Perko Torana in the finals. A solid win
from a very cool looking car
Twin Turbo V8 Lexus-powered Capri
Joe Geri's Capri recently featured in Street Machine Magazine and it has
run as fast as 8.34 at 164mph. But instead of running a V8 Ford engine Joe
has gone for a 4-litre Lexus V8, which is legally the biggest engine he can
fit to the car and turbo it while
remaining totally street legal. He drives this car to the track, bolts on
some slicks, runs eights and drives it home. It's a true street and strip
warrior. Nice one Joe!
Fiesty APSA Girls at Street Machine Nationals
Thank god for Promo girls. Otherwise there would be nothing to look at
other than cars at car events... and we couldn't have that. these lovely
lasses were at the Street Machine Nationals promoting the Australian Pro
Street Association and they were doing a pretty damn fine job of it too.
Sparks Fly - HG Holden Wheelstand
I'm not totally sure who's HG Holden this is, but it had no trouble getting
the front wheels off the deck and scaring the driver. It came down with a
hell of a thump and sparks went everywhere. But obviously it was okay
because the car came out later and made more passes. Good to see.
