Big crash  at Drag Week.

The six second Javelin wagged the tail..... it was never going to recover.

Driver hopped out of the upturned car unassisted..... so that was good.

Never a good thing..... Drag Racing huh..... ya take ya chances.

It sprayed liquid under the r/h tyre..... ya just a passenger after that at those speeds.

The Corvette went 6:46 @ 209
The Prison Bus ran a blistering 20 second pass all week.  ;D

When you accept the staging lights, the next few seconds are either ya best day or ya worse day.

The world is full of parasites

A trio of thieves is on the run after stealing a classic Holden Monaro worth hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Their dramatic getaway at Newton was captured on camera.

I like it.

The Commodore ute that never was.

 A recently unearthed photo has revealed never-before-seen Holden models that – if put into production in the early 1980s instead of discarded – might have altered the course of GMH’s history and even changed the Australian family car.

Lurking in the background of a full-sized clay proposal for the 1981 VH Commodore that was also eventually rejected, they include drawings of a Commodore utility and one-tonne tray behind the model, along with a raised crossover wagon version hanging on another wall.

Something different if you have the $$ to spare.
32 Ford has  Bugatti W12 in it.
Bloke spent a fortune on it.
Jag suspension, Bugatti seats, body widened 200mm.
Apparently looking for offers over $100k.
