The September issue of NZV8 Magazine has just reached shop shelves and it’s full up with a whole load of feature cars, news, event reports and everything you need to know about the V8 scene in NZ. Grab a copy before they sell out.
In this month’s issue we have a striking cover car in the form of ’69 Holden Monaro HT. This LS3-powered machine is beautifully detailed and finished to a standard that’s rarely seen, even in a NZV8 feature car. Other cars in the new issue include a big block Plymouth Satellite and a 1987 Ford Thunderbird drag machine that runs a 522ci big block Chevy engine. We also check out Craig Date’s drag-spec T-bucket which can pull 9 second passes making it one of the quickest in the country. Our final feature car is certainly unique, it’s a Nissan Navara ute powerd by a twin turbo LS1 engine, with 700+ horsepower this is one scary mini truck. We also have an special feature showing some of the craziest engine conversions in the country and then we get serious with advice on how to do a conversion properly. We take a close look at Ford’s new supercharged ‘Coyote’ V8 engine and get some technical advice on choosing the right clutch.
All this plus the usual advice, readers’ rides, shed visit and news to keep you up to date with all that’s happening on the NZ V8 scene. This is an epic issue so make sure you pick up a copy now before they sell out!
