If you love tough cars, you’ll love NZV8 Issue No. 142. Gracing the cover is serial-cover-car-builder Warren Black’s ‘sedate family car’ — a 527ci big block–powered show-quality HQ Sedan. Speaking of big motors, we’ve also got Shea Peterson’s big block Cuda, and the quickest street rod in the land, Kerry Stewart’s eight-second Bucket. Despite the Bucket having a crazy power-to-weight ratio, it’s still not as crazy as Robbie Ward’s twin-turbo small block motorbike, which is also in this issue. If you prefer things a touch more sedate, we’ve also got a Cobra with a twist, and a very cool ’37 Ford Coupe. On the event front we’ve got coverage from Street Machine Summernats, Cromwell Classic Car and Hot Rod Show, Cruise Martinborough, and Enzed Central Muscle Cars round four.
