Street Machine Magazine August 2022
This month's cover car is an absolute burger with the lot - a genuine LC GTR Torana loaded with a fire-breathing twin-turbo LS7, incredible fab work, a paddle-shifted transmission and all the mod cons. Fresh from its debut at Meguiar's MotorEx, Michael Ellard's BEAMS-powered Corolla van won us over with its amazing attention to detail. Jason Waye's Barra-swapped Foxbody Mustang is a street and strip car par excellence, as is Chris Vassilis’s killer LX Torana hatch, which runs eight-second passes the old-fashioned way - sans turbo. We'll take you along to the nitro-scented Summernats Slam event at Heathcote, as well as Sydney's premier indoor show, the Hot Rod and Custom Auto Expo. Tech-heads will also love the deep dive on Larry Perkins's recently rebuilt Iron Lion - the last Holden V8 to win Bathurst!
