PERFORMANCE GUARANTEED

OUR TEAM OF GRIZZLED WRENCHMEISTERS HAVE HAD A BIT OF A MIXED BAG OF THINGS THIS MONTH. THERE’S JOY, THERE’S PAIN AND THERE’S THE WARM SATISFACTION OF A JOB WELL DONE. SOME REWARDED THEMSELVES WITH A CUPPA AND A BISCUIT, SOME WENT TO SUMMERNATS AND PRETENDED NOT TO LOOK AT BOOBS

MORLEY’S WORKSHOP 106

Our man offers a salutary lesson in keeping tabs on project costs, is alternately appalled and unsurprised by garage bodges, waxes lyrical on the joys of salt flat racing and gets bent out of shape over extreme camber. And Centuras are still not going away.

READER’S RESTO: DATSUN 240Z 114

Marc Abdelahad’s 240Z is something very special. He’s built his own ECU, exhaust, and fuel injection system, and conjured together a braking setup and forced induction system. You might not have been a Zed fan before but you will be soon. Just look. You’ll see.

OUR SHED 128

Glenn Torrens’ dun deal on rego, Dave Morley finds himself behind bars and Guy Allen faces the singular shame of having bought a paint gun that’s purely decorative.

FAINE 136

Jon Faine goes back for seconds and comes away disappointed.

BLACKBOURN 138

Rob might be the only man who can quote off the top of his head the function of elastic modulus, the area moment of inertia of the beam cross-section about the axis of interest, the length of the beam and the beam boundary condition of an extravagantly corroded 1963 Ford Anglia.

READERS’ RIDES 142

From the sublime to the singular - our readers run the full gamut.

CLUB TALES 146

If you’re in Gippsland and you’re thinking of starting a Vehicle Collection, then we’ve got some rather bad news for you.
