WHEN IT RAINS, IT POURS
When it rains, it pours — that old chestnut is one that’s usually referred to when things go wrong many times over. While things going wrong may have been the experience for many of our feature car owners, it’s not always the case in the world of NZV8. We’re not sure why it is, but, for some reason, when we get one specific type of feature car lined up, we’re often hit with an influx of them — it pours! That influx is, as Murphy’s Law would have it, more often than not met with an equal vacuum of the opposite type of vehicle. The last few months have seen the influx needle swing heavily to Ford Falcons, and left a void in a marque we’re usually drowning in — Chevrolet. Obviously, this leaves us in equal parts stoked to have more Fords to feature and on the lookout for more Chevs — to make sure we bring you a balanced magazine — as well as all the other marques, of course. Speaking of which, hopefully by now you’ll all have had a chance to check out the other projects we’ve been working on, including the recently released Holden Special Edition — something we’d been chipping away at long before we caught wind of another publisher also producing one; remember: when it rains, it pours. The other thing that we’ve been flat out with is our TV programme, Teng Tools Muscle Garage. As was the case with NAC Car Culture, which we shared with our sister title, NZ Performance Car, television is the best way to see the cars from these pages come to life. The difference is that this new programme has nothing but NZV8- related content. The show airs every Sunday as part of TV3’s CRC Motorsport line-up, so make sure to tune in if you’ve not as yet, as the programme’s been getting great reviews. We’re already sorting out the content for the second and third(!) seasons, which will air early and late in 2018 respectively — hopefully giving us enough time to avoid the downpour of any particular brand! With this being the last issue of NZV8 on sale for 2017, I’d like to thank all our loyal readers for their support, and wish you all the best for the holiday season. Take care out there, and we’ll catch you again in the new year to do it all over again.
