HOME SCHOOL­ING

Fast Car - - ED START - Slim Jules

So, a lot has changed in the last month. We’re in the mid­dle of a world­wide Covid-19 pan­demic. As I type these words, we’re still very much in lock­down but hope­fully some of the re­stric­tions will have been lifted by the time you read the mag­a­zine. I men­tioned last month about the chal­lenges we face at Fast Car, like shoot­ing fea­ture cars. Well, how’s this for a bit of a cool story: this month’s cover car is a home-built S15, and luck­ily for us, the owner Mark Loony isn’t just a tal­ented car builder – we’ve fea­tured his cars be­fore – but he’s also a bit handy be­hind the lens of a cam­era too, and has shot fea­tures for us in the past. So as luck would have it, he agreed to do his own shoot on the drive where he built the S-Body. And be­fore any­one asks, he got the cover shot and owner pic­tures by us­ing the old faith­ful self-timer but­ton.

Not only that, but it’s also the car you guys voted for on our web­site to be on the next cover; it’s as if faith stepped in to help us all out. All you need to do now is turn over to page 12 and read about his in­cred­i­ble build.

Of course, Loony’s S15 is only one of the many cars in this is­sue, and like al­ways we’ve strived for an eclec­tic mix of me­tal for your pe­rusal. You’ll find ev­ery­thing from an in­sane Volvo V50 to 1000+bhp Lam­borgh­ini Huracán to an old skool Cel­ica GT that has a tur­bocharged Lexus V8 plumbed into its bay.

We hope you en­joy this is­sue of Fast Car and don’t forget to take ad­van­tage of the in­cred­i­ble Lock­down sub­scrip­tion of­fers avail­able at the mo­ment. We’ll see you on the other side and when you do, we’ll have com­pany in the form of a new reg­u­lar sup­ple­ment. Stay Safe,
