Street Machine February 2022 on sale now

It’s new mag day, with Summernats coverage galore!


Summer is in full swing, which means it’s time for our February issue of Street Machine! It’s jam-packed with quality features and event action, including extensive coverage of a little old show in Canberra we call Street Machine Summernats. You may have heard of it.

Daryl O’Sullivan’s Elite-level HK ute takes centre stage on this month’s cover. It’s a beautifully finished machine inside and out, packing a stonking LSX376, three pedals, and ’bags all ’round.

Mopar nuts Matt Mitchell and Katie Bourke put together this super-tough ’71 Barracuda with a difference. Matt has tetraplegia, meaning the crate Hemi-powered car runs hand controls and several other disability-friendly bits.

Darren Young’s HD is a mean one. Between acres of green and a strong 355 Holden stroker, he’s chuffed with the result.

VL Commodores have been a long-time affair for Justin Schmidt, and they don’t come much cooler than his twin-turbo LS-powered, eight-second streeter.

The Holden goodies don’t stop there, with Dave Barnard’s killer LS3-powered HQ Monaro making an appearance. He’s blended timeless looks with modern GM power to build his ultimate ride, and we absolutely dig it.

On the other side of the fence, we’ve got Pas Daskalakis’s suitably named INSANE XB coupe. The Blue Oval beast features a raft of custom touches, and is motivated by a hardcore Dart Windsor powerplant.

Check out this eight-second XY Falcon, raced by Peter Tsekenis. Believe it or not, there’s an aspirated small-block under the bonnet, screwed together by BK Race Engines.

As mentioned, even the virus that shall not be named couldn’t stop Summernats this year, with everything from the Elite Hall to the mullet comp going off. We’ve got heaps of ’Nats coverage inside, from every corner of EPIC and beyond.

Street Machine Supernats made its Victorian debut late last year, bringing hundreds of rad cars to Winton Raceway in search of tyre-smashing fun.

Restrictions backing off saw heaps of other shows take place around Australia. We bring you a round-up of a few we got along to, from mag-launch barbecues to the Ford-Powered Nationals.

We’ve also got a Drag Challenge Barra-powered VK wagon, a look at the uber-rare 1940s Frenzel supercharger, and all your usual favourites.
