The October issue of Street Machine is on sale now, with Adam Rogash’s ALLSHOW VK Commodore on the cover


THE October 2017 issue of Street Machine is on sale now, and boy is it a cracker! We’ve got some seriously bad-arse feature cars this month, a preview of this year’s Street Machine Drag Challenge, plus shedloads more!

 On the cover of this issue is Adam Rogash’s insane ALLSHOW VK Commodore Blue Meanie replica. You’ve seen the build videos, now here’s the finished product – a 2000hp, twin-turbo 440ci LS-powered stunner ready for action at Street Machine Drag Challenge later this year; it’s going to be a serious contender. And look out for the final part of the build series this Friday.

 If you don’t see this bright orange show-spec XR Fairmont coming, you’ll definitely hear it! With a 700hp 427 Windsor under the bonnet, it’s not just a show pony.

 This month we’re across the ditch in New Zealand! We jumped over to witness the tyre-frying hootenanny that is the Chrome Expression Session.

 This twin-turbo LS-powered ’56 Chevy sedan was initially going to be built to tackle Hot Rod Drag Week in the States, but instead it ended up as a stunning show-quality cruiser.

 Stuart Bishop normally gets around in a mental Doorslammer race car, but now he’s rebuilt this classic show van with airbags and a ton of grunt courtesy of an LSX 454R.

 This issue we also preview the 2017 Street Machine Drag Challenge and introduce some of the new faces to the game, including Shane Dale and his 502ci HZ Sandman, and a couple of quick turbo LS-powered Holdens.

 Here’s something you don’t see every day: Kosta Contis has swapped a Dodge Viper V10 into this stunning Chrysler CL ute!

 We don’t do Datsuns very often at Street Machine, but we had to make an exception for this stunner. Todd Bulkeley’s hand control-operated, 500hp FJ20-powered Datsun 1600 coupe is a Summernats Top 20-placing beauty.

 You’ll find all of this plus Colorado’s Hot Rod Dirt Drags, a turbo 202-powered Torana in the build, flex-fuel tech, Carnage MX5.7 news and more in the October 2017 issue of Street Machine – on sale now!
