NZ Performance Car 288, February — March 2021
In issue 288 of NZ Performance Car magazine, we sent Richard Opie down to Canterbury to check out New Zealand’s cleanest old school Corolla Levin (TE37 replica), which is packing twin-carbs, big headers, and a body so smooth you’d struggle to believe it. With a southern focus this issue, we take a look at NZ’s southern most stylish drift team; Team B Style and their Nissan sliders and head down to soak in the action at the 4&Rotary South Island Champs. Ryan Ward shows us what a ‘Stage 5’ upgrade would look like if Gran Turismo ever got the chance, with NZ’s most powerful Mitsubihsi GTO packing 588kW (788hp) at the wheels. If you’re into old school Mazdas, Amy Davidson takes us on a tour of her Mazda madhouse — a converted apartment, which is now a rotary and Millen Motorsport masterpiece. The ed takes us on a rally-inspired cruise in his 1995 Subaru WRX 555 Special Edition, after an invite with a group of enthusiasts named the WRC Blatters and we captured the largest club-based event to ever happen on these shores; Clubfest. Oh, and a heap more!
