Australian Hot Rodder #5
ON SALE - OCTOBER 2015
Mark Koster’s beautiful '34 Plymouth is just one of the fabulous cars featured in Issue #5 of Australian Hot Rodder. The cover with Koster’s bare metal coupe dramatically shot at night in a back alley in inner Melbourne came up a treat.
As well as the Plymouth we feature Flat Attack, Mike Davidson’s twin-flathead powered salt lake streamliner. The South Australian is aiming to reset the existing benchmark for flathead-powered cars by going in excess of 305 mph in this beautifully built racer.
We also document the life and times of Eddie Ford, arguably the Australia’s most influential hot rodder. In the first part of our story on Eddie we look at his early hot rods, the channelled ’34 coupe he built in the early 1960s, and the ’32 three-window coupe he built later in the ’70s.
If that’s not enough there are also features on Neville Anderson’s ’34 coupe, Bill Wickes’ Model A roadster, Peter Eames shorty ’34 Chev bucket, Charlie Pirotta’s dazzling ’56 Customline, Peter Leech’s ’32 coupe, the ’32 Tudor of Steven and Kathleen Alldrick, the Mullins & Bell blown Chrysler rail, and Jack “Fizzball” Collins, the winner of the first national drag racing title.
