Up­date! Hodgo recre­ation

Not only will the 2017 Mas­ters recre­ate on site the fa­mous Ron Hodg­son pro­mo­tional trans­porter (pic­tured) from 1973, but the ac­tual Bob Mor­ris XU-1 To­rana race­car will be on hand at Syd­ney Mo­tor­sport Park, too. The fer­tile mind of ‘cre­ative di­rec­tor’ Todd Martin has dreamt up some fun­tas­tic – now there’s a ’70s word! – static dis­plays in­clud­ing a beach scene. Con­tact him via 0428 487 981 or todd@mus­cle­carevents. com.au if you have a To­rana hatch­back, Sand­man Ute or Chrysler Drifter and want to be in­volved. He’s also af­ter a Surferoo and sev­eral gold XR GTs for a ded­i­cated and prom­i­nent pad­dock area dis­play.
