WRIT­ERS’ ROCK­ETS

Street Machine - - Your Stuff - Jo­han van der Veer, email

I’VE BEEN mean­ing to drop you peo­ple a line for a while, but the Blowin’ Gas­kets ar­ti­cle by Carly Dale (SM, Nov ’18) res­onated with me for a cou­ple of rea­sons. Like Carly, I’m eas­ily dis­tracted by eas­ier jobs, in my case, around the house or even just get­ting caught up chas­ing parts at swap meets in­stead of spend­ing the time in the shed. Or al­ter­na­tively, the age-old curse of time and money! The other as­pect of the ar­ti­cle that caught

my in­ter­est was what cars were in Carly’s shed. Hav­ing read this mag for a num­ber of decades it’s al­ways in­ter­est­ing to see and read about what cars you lot have. From Ge­off Par­adise’s ’57 to Bob Kot­mel’s HG ute, I’ve en­joyed see­ing what they’re up to. Telf’s dearly de­parted EJ build was a great read in one of the an­nual SM Hot Rod jour­nals and I’d love to see what he does to his Ton­ner (good to see it in use in the re­cent Car­nage episode, BTW).

So what I’m get­ting at in my long-winded fash­ion is that I’d love to see the oc­ca­sional ar­ti­cle on the cool cars of the Street Ma­chine team – in the style of Read­ers’ Rock­ets would work for me, too.

Thanks and keep up the good work.
