Falcon XY 9-second true street car
Arty's Ford XY runs into the 9s for the first time. The car was driven to
and from the track and raced in full street trim (3690lb with driver) for
consistent 9s and then driven to the pizza shop to celebrate!
Dandy Engines powered naturally aspirated 440ci Windsor V8 running on

Ford Falcon GTHO Phase 4 test drive
The Falcon GTHO Phase 4 is one of the rarest muscle cars ever built by
Ford. Only 4 were ever made and 3 are beleived to still exist. 3 were
purpose built for production car racing and only one made it through the
production line before the program was cancelled due to the "muscle car
scare" in Australia.
It is to Australia, what the Mustang Boss 429 is to the USA - The
ultimate muscle car.

Tribute to Peter Brock
I have seen many great tributes to Peter Brock and have been meaning for
some time to put together one of my own, and here it is finally. Yes, my
