The name Charlie Bailey will be a familiar one to many readers, the prolific feature car owner makes his return with not one, but two features. The first a 10-second big block ‘67 Chev Nova, and the second a ‘69 SS Chevrolet (aka South African Monaro) to replace the one that got away. Rotorua’s Vince Douglas shares with us his US born ‘67 Ford Falcon, and writer Richard relives his youth with one very special big block packing Almac Cobra. We go behind the scenes with an exclusive of CRE’s recent development program for the Aluminator powered TA2s, and we head to SEMA to check out the latest and greatest. With car shows now back on in parts of the country, we cruise the boulevard with Wellington’s Union Car Club, and attend a fundraiser with the first-ever Rakaia Car Show. All this and a ton more in your January edition of NZV8.
