Z CARS

IF YOU recog­nise Graham Longhurst’s name, it’s be­cause he owns both the Sum­mer­nats 24 Horse­power He­roes-win­ning SMOKEU HZ Kingswood, as well as ITSON, an HZ One Ton­ner burnout car that he com­petes in along the east coast. “SMOKEU has been in the shed for a few years now,” Graham says of the 891rwhp Kinger. “I had the rings done and a freshen-up, but it’s the same combo. I’m look­ing at en­ter­ing Sum­mer­nats 32 and maybe Shep­par­ton. Now it’s a Powercruise car, so it’s fun with­out trash­ing it as much. “I’ve got ITSON for burnouts; we’ve done Cairns, Brisbane, Syd­ney in the past month. We do a fair bit of trav­el­ling with that one.” So, do Graham and Shannon have a cruiser that’s all un­der-bon­net? “Not re­ally,” Graham laughs. “But we do have an SL/R 5000 that I’m do­ing up, as well as an HQ four-door that I’ll put an LS in as a cruise car.”
