The VIP Chopped trip winner announced and we check out some of the cool cars you guys sent us


OVER on our Street Machine Facebook page we ran a competition to give away a weekend trip to Chopped that included four weekend camping passes and loads of cool merchandise. All you had to do to enter was post a pic of your car in the comments and tell us why you want to win the Chopped weekend away.

Josh Lethbridge from Queensland is our winner with his bagged cool ’65 XP Falcon ute. The kind folk at Chopped will be slinging Josh four weekend camping passes, plus a bag of Chopped merch, valued at over $1000! For more information about the Chopped event visit
