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.
