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,
