Every once and awhile a car comes along that makes you just stop and say “Wow”. The ’69 Chev Camaro on the cover of NZV8 Issue No.130 is one such car. Flawless in finish and perfect in execution, it really is amongst the best pro tourers in the world.
It’s not alone though,as the rest of the cars in the issue are equally as world-class. From the twin-turbo XY Falcon drag ute of Jason Sellars to the flawless HT Monaro circuit car of Brett Pearce. On the street-car front there’s also a very cool ’56 Chev Bel Air and a mechanically injected retro-styled T-bucket.
