2015 PRA Pepsi Max Crew, Mark Win­ter­bot­tom FGX #5

Here

it is: the 2015 cham­pi­onship-win­ning Pro­drive Rac­ing FGX Fal­con. This is the car that helped Frosty win nine races and give him his first-ever driver’s cham­pi­onship. Apex Replica’s brand new scale mod­els of last sea­son’s top V8 Supercar come in two ver­sions. The 1:18 ver­sion is diecast metal; the 1:43 in resin. Due for de­liv­ery around the middle of the year, both will be lim­ited edi­tions. For more pho­tos and de­tails of stock­ists, go to www.apexrepli­cas.com.au

Holden Panel Van in Bar­ba­dos Green

For

decades Aussies have been tak­ing the hum­ble Panel Van and turn­ing it into their own Aussie icon, some to stun­ning ef­fect. Clas­sic Car­lecta­bles new 1:18 diecast re­lease, based on the Holden VU, does the same. With psy­che­delic graph­ics on a stun­ning Bar­ba­dos Green body and lux­u­ri­ously plush in­te­rior, in Burnt Or­ange with red suede, it’s a sen­ti­men­tal look at cap­tur­ing all the fun and nos­tal­gia of the pe­riod. Other stand­out fea­tures in­clude multi-speaker au­dio sys­tem, 5.7 V8, 19” al­loys and a lift-off short-board. For more de­tails go to www.clas­s­ic­car­lecta­bles.com.au con­cluded on July 15 at War­wick Farm af­ter the com­ple­tion of eight rounds. While it was Al­lan Mof­fat who dom­i­nated the se­ries and took the ti­tle, it was Peter Brock, at the wheel of his Holden LJ XU-1 To­rana who emerged as the ris­ing star. Clas­sic Car­lecta­bles marks this with their lim­ited-to-1000 re­lease of this su­perb 1:18 diecast model, com­plete with work­ing sus­pen­sion arms and soft rac­ing slicks. The amaz­ing en­gine bay in­cludes etched metal hinges, ac­cel­er­a­tor link­age de­tail and a tangle of pipe work, just like the orig­i­nal! See more at Clas­sic’s web­site.
