BY GRAHAM SMITH. THIS IS A BRAND NEW BOOK.
DEDICATED TO AUSTRALIA’S HOT ROD HERITAGE.
Hot Rodding in Australia has a long and wonderful history packed with great cars and colourful characters and Australian Hot Rodder brings their stories to life through great features and fabulous photography.
In issue Number Four of AHR you can read and view stunning photos of Bob Bowman’s new handcrafted Model A Tourer along with his classic peppermint Pirate Model A coupe that dates back to the 1970s. You can also read about Warren Wilkie’s beautiful ’36 three-window coupe, the ups and downs of Peter Leech’s ’32 roadster, Don Langdon’s classy ’35 tourer, and the amazing feat by two completely unknowns when they beat all-comers to win the 1934 Victorian Centenary Grand Prix in a stripped-down ’34 Ford roadster. Having borrowed his parents’ roadster and removed its guards, running boards, windshield, headlights and anything else that hindered its speed Mick Smith, partnered by his best mate, Lindsay Terry, beat the very best Australian motor racing could offer in 1934. Remarkably, it was his first ever race, and his last, he never raced again.
Softbound, 156 pages, stunning colour photography and black & white archival shots.
