AND THE REST

NZV8’ s New Toy!

NZV8 - - DECADE AGO -

Some of you may re­mem­ber the NZV8­stick­ered Fal­con XR8 put to­gether by the Ford gu­rus at Isaac Per­for­mance Ve­hi­cles. The car wasn’t just your av­er­age rolling bill­board, as, thanks to var­i­ous mod­i­fi­ca­tions, it had more than enough power to match its looks. Bet­ter still, it was backed by a six-speed man­ual box!

Mr Mo­ti­va­tion

Tony Chris­tiansen may have lost his legs at an early age, but, as we found out when we caught up with him for an interview, that hasn’t slowed him down a bit. The man is an ab­so­lute leg­end and in­spi­ra­tion, whose achieve­ments in­clude com­pet­ing suc­cess­fully in var­i­ous mo­tor­sports, climb­ing Mount Kil­i­man­jaro (on his arse), tak­ing part in mar­tial arts, and be­ing a damn nice guy to boot. If ever there were a mo­ti­va­tional story, his is it!
