NZV8 187, December 2020

Long before he donned the black jumper and was named World Rugby Player of the Year in 2014, Brodie Retallick was dreaming of owning an HQ slammed into the weeds. Fast forward a few years and he has owned a few examples, but this is by far his ultimate version. An epic restoration project with Inch perfect panels, killer stance, and a 1000hp capable blown big block dressed in all black. We also checkout a pro touring ‘’56 Chev 3100, a 10-second 493ci packing ‘74 Dodge Challenger, a tough blown Clevo powered ‘75 Falcon Coupe, and a pair ofCOTF NASCARs living out their retirement in the Manawatu. Event wise we have the Fathers Day Drags, Kaikoura Hop, and the Toy Shed Open day. Paint experts Doctor Cuts walk us through saving a 10-year-old paint job on a 9-second streeter, and we raid the Rees shed in sunny Whangamata. All this and a ton more in the latest issue of NZV8.
