WE TEAMED up with our mates at Hare & Forbes at Street Machine Summernats 32 to give away a $4000 garage pack to one lucky punter. Queenslander Doug Diprose was the winner of the killer prize, which consists of an auto parts washer, bench grinder and linisher, tool chest and roll cabinet, and a set of vehicle jacks, among other handy garage hardware.

Im building an XE Fairmont Ghia with a 545ci big-block at the moment, so it will definitely come in handy! said Doug. Ive wanted to get a toolbox for home for a while because all my tools are at work, so its really helped me sort a few things out in the shed.

A big shout-out to Hare & Forbes for assembling such an awesome prize pack!


LADIES, Im afraid we have some bad news: long-time Street Machine scribbler and Mopar aficionado Mark Arby Arblaster is now officially off the market. He and his lovely misso Liza tied the knot recently, with Arbys mega-horsepower WAR440 Valiant dutifully serving as wedding chariot on the day. Huge congratulations to you both, from everyone here at SM!
