Street Machine Magazine September 2022
Cubes are king according to Simon Pickrell, whose 544ci Kaase-headed XW Falcon, SLYXW, graces the cover of our September issue. It's built to handle, stop and go, and look good doing it! Kevin Baird's FX Holden looks like a lightly modded stocker, such is the mastery of the team at Deluxe Rod Shop. It's actually a comprehensively refined and re-engineered pro tourer, built in a way that is spectacularly sensitive to the original car. This month we also have a tough, nitrous-huffing HQ Monaro, a snarling Hemi six-powered Val which has conquered Drag Challenge, and a stonking blown and injected VE Commodore Powercruise car from the lads at BG Engines. We also announce the 16 finalists for Milwaukee SMOTY for 2022, check out some no prep action at Powercruise Street Outlaws Australia, and watch and learn as the team at Castlemaine Rod Shop builds a bolt-in nine-inch rear end for Broads's Torana.
