Street Machine Magazine Summer 2023
The 2023 Street Machine Summer Special issue is jammed with Summernats 35 coverage, a killer crop of feature cars, and just about every other happening you can poke a stick at.
Our cover hero shouldn’t really need an introduction, but in case you’ve been living under a rock for the last four decades or so, it's Gary and Jake Myers’s iconic ’66 Mustang burnout car, now restored to its OG black livery. Jake’s done a cracking job paying tribute to his dad’s legacy at the wheel, and was rewarded with his second Burnout Masters title at Summernats 35.
Daniel Armstrong’s HR resembles an immaculately finished resto job, but there’s 1000hp of sneaky blown LS tucked under the factory bonnet. Tony Muscara’s eight-second XE isn’t quite as sleepy, but its Whipple-blown Coyote Cobra Jet mill more than makes up for it.
A gorgeous ’55 Chev pick-up from Ashton Camilleri is a family hand-me-down, which Ashton inherited from his late grandfather. With a stout small-block Chev and heaps of driveline and fab work from ProFlo performance, we reckon Ashton’s knocked it out of the park.
Matt Lomas brings some Torana sedan love with his slick, force-fed LS2-motivated LH. There’s a sweet custom interior, and Matt’s built the Torrie to hit the street, show pavilion, and maybe even the quarter-mile down the line! Bought as an unfinished project, Scott Campbell’s Mopar-powered, three-pedal Dodge (yes, it’s a Dodge, not a Valiant) ute. Thanks to the beefy V8 and quality handling gear underneath, it’s equally at-home on road or track.
A tough late-model hottie rounds out feature car proceedings in the form of Glenn-john Tronc’s 1100hp VE Commodore streeter, while we take a look at Chris Kaarsberg’s seven-second Torrie. Of course, then there’s pages upon pages of Summernats 35 coverage, a chat with Supercars champion Rick Kelly, and a ripper Time Machine, too.
There's also an informative tech yarn on the basic ins and outs of welding, while Arby’s got the down-low on the inaugural Midnight Mayhem meet in Urban Warfare. There’s all this and more in the Street Machine 2023 Summer Special, so get on it!
