With the weather in fine form today, I decided to step out and into the sunshine to have a gander over some cars at the All Ford Day held at the Bassendean oval. Over 500 cars packed the infield and the colours and action looked great through my Nikon viewfinder. I only grabbed a handful […]

A WAY OF LIFE – 1934 Ford Five-Window Coupe

Most of my hot rod articles start the same; they usually make mention of the owner starting with street machines when he was younger, selling that car, moving on with his life and then having an epiphany somewhere in his middle age and deciding to build a hot rod. Phil Pavicich’s story is remarkably different. […]

WORLDS COLLIDE – 1967 SS Camaro

Packing a stroked LS3, generous suspension upgrades, a six-speed stick-shift, big brakes, and smooth Trans-Am circuit styling pointers, this is one absolutely killer street car that can do it all and look damn […]
