FATHER’S DAY BOOGIE
WHILE most of the SM team is going to be at Red Centrenats for the Father’s Day long weekend, there are plenty of other great events going on all over the country to keep Dad happy! In Sydney, Outlaw Speed Shop is presenting its second Father’s Day Car Show & Picnic, at Gledswood Homestead & Winery, 900 Camden Valley Way, Gledswood Hills. The event runs from 10am ’til 4pm and is a great family event, with 15 custom-made trophies up for grabs, live music, and yep, wine tasting for those dads with designated drivers. Other events on that weekend include Showcars Melbourne’s annual Father’s Day gig in St Kilda and the All Aussie Father’s Day at Lakeside Park Raceway in Brisbane. Check out Spit & Polish (page 14) for more.
BIG news for those of us living in the colder parts of the world – new Street Machine hoodies are in! This time, we’ve gone for the ‘100% Street-driven’ design, featuring the old-school SM logo and monster tacho graphic on the back. They are extra-warm and will set you back $69.99. You can get them from our online shop: street-machine-shop.myshopify.com.
LOTS of goodies next issue, including one of the stars of this year’s Meguiar’s Motorex, a killer twin-turbo ’56 Chev, a Blue Meanie-style VK rally car and a very special Datsun 1600. Shows include the Covered In Chrome event from Unzed, dirt drags from an 86-yearold airstrip in Colorado and action from Bonneville Speed Week. In tech, we have part two of the Barrainto-vs ute build and take a look at what is involved in setting up a flex-fuel system for your street-and-strip warrior. The October mag goes on sale 21 September; keep an eye on streetmachine.com.au for daily updates.
