IT TAKES a special kind of bloke to lend you his tough streeter for 24 hours unsupervised, but SM shooter Shawn McCann is one of a kind! His ride is Mabel – a 1963 Chevrolet C10. Thanks to a tonne of chassis work and a set of airbags, Mabel lays frame with the best of them, but the old girl is hiding a surprise under the bonnet. Pop the lid and you’ll find a 400-cube Chev – assisted by an old-school single-turbo set-up! The turbo is located over the right-hand-side rocker cover, spooled up by just one side of the exhaust and with a four-barrel carby doing its job suck-through style. It’s super-simple, but not ideal in 2020 terms of driveability! The C10’s mission was to help add some chrome-bumper flavour to…

street machine drag challenge weekend hits sydney!

AFTER two successful events in South East Queensland, we’re moving the three-day Drag Challenge Weekend event to Sydney Dragway for 2020, 3-5 April. And, while we’ll be racing all three days at Sydney, that doesn’t mean the entrants will be getting out of some big drives! There will be a minimum of 600km to cover, and you can expect some of those roads to be quite tough. That’s why we call it Drag Challenge. If you have never entered the event before, read the rules carefully before you commit. You can read them all at dragchallenge.com.au, but the very crux of the event is that once racing starts for the weekend, competitors cannot use car trailers or access support vehicles without disqualification. Other biggies are to observe all road rules and the…

let’s rock!

THE first-ever Rare Spares Rockynats is set to light up Central Queensland for a long June weekend of horsepower-fuelled action. A joint effort by the Summernats team and Rockhampton Regional Council, Rockynats will offer a plethora of automotive delights, 26-28 June. Like its big-brother event in Canberra, the Street Machine Summernats, Rockynats’ drawcards will include burnouts, cruising and show cars. Drifting and eighth-mile street drags are also set to feature all weekend, making for some intense no-prep racing along Quay Street in the Rockhampton CBD. Drags will be divided into two categories: those with quicker cars who want to race competitively, and less formal grudge racing that will be open to anybody willing to give it a shot in a controlled environment. The event will be split over three precincts, centred around…

hot pursuit

THE original Mad Max Pursuit Special ‘Interceptor’ has been put up for sale by current owners, the Orlando Auto Museum in Florida, USA. This is huge news for Mad Max fans and Falcon GT enthusiasts alike, with Max Rockatansky’s menacing black XB coupe arguably the most famous Aussie car of all time. The coupe’s transformation from second-hand car to film star started in 1977, when the genuine JG66 XB Falcon GT was sent to Ray Beckerley at Graf-X International with a brief from Mad Max art director Jon Dowding. Ray subcontracted some of the work, with Ford designer Peter Arcadipane fitting one of his Concorde noses and Errol Platt of Purvis Eureka fame installing the roof and tail spoilers after ripping them off Bob Jane’s Monaro. Truck painter Rod Smythe and…
