EIGHT TRACK PLAYER

I ALWAYS KNEW THE CAR HAD AN EIGHT IN IT. IN FACT, I THINK ITS GOT AN 8.40, MAYBE EVEN AN 8.30 IN IT

goes for the black radiator and intercooler.

Its a street car, Alex says. I drive it every chance I get to the pub, out for dinner, even to the beach at Rye. If its a good weekend, Ill have it out every day. At one stage I was driving it more often than my daily! In fact, its a lot nicer to drive than when it had a 500hp Clevo [see breakout].

With EFI, a smaller converter and smaller diff gears, it sits at 2300rpm on the freeway. And thanks to the E85, its runs 20F cooler!

Mind you, it does fry the hides at 100km/h with ease even with 325 boots.

Ive accomplished everything Ive always wanted with the car, Alex reckons, including getting a feature in Street Machine Im stoked!

At just 29 years of age, Alex is one of the youngest in his wider group of car friends. But as he says: I might be the youngest, but Im definitely not the slowest! s
