Soon the only trace of Holden at Pagewood will be the workers’ old pub, as remaining buildings at GM-H’s former Sydney assembly plant are completely torn down. It’s a metaphor for local manufacturing’s October 20 demise, signifying more than just the end of the line at Elizabeth and for Aussie-built Commodores. We mark the passing of Aussie Holdens in a left-field way.

Muscle Sport
Our cameras were out in force at Bathurst, Baskerville and Toranafest. All the latest on the historic and retro racing scene.

Muscle Maniac
In an unassuming house, in an unassuming street in Brisbane is one of the best collections of Ford Australia memorabilia in the country… a collection that Ford management are not only well aware of, but have also actively assisted in its development, through various contributions over the years.

Muscle Mail
Readers drop us a line with their memories of the significant Torana A9Xs and pay tribute to living legends of our sport: Allan Moffat and Ray Kaleda.

Dick’s Mustangs
The stayer! Despite the Ford Mustang’s iconic status, in the mid-1980s it was an unlikely choice for an Aussie touring car legend to tackle the brave new world of Group A. Despite winning only a single race, this motor racing orphan proved a vital stepping-stone on Dick Johnson’s remarkable journey.

Roadways A9Xs
They were running mates in the late 1970s, spent nearly two decades apart and now they’ve again found a home with each other, as AMC discovers.

The Ton
This magazine is set to hit the ton! As we head towards our landmark 100th issue, to be published in February 2018, we’re digging out some key ‘Kodak’ moments from the archives of the mag’s early days. This time we go all the way back to issue #2 and that issue’s cover story shoot.

Muscle Man
We can’t recall ever seeing a profile on perennial touring car privateer Bill O’Brien. AMC caught up with O’Brien in Canberra, of course, to hear the story of his everlasting Bathurst attacks in powder blue.

A Group of Group As
Four brothers. Four Commodores. One common build number. A Group of Group As!

Slots
When we asked Brett Jurmann to take over the reins of Slot Machine Addiction, we were inquisitive about the track he had at home. Surely Brett had an interesting permanent set-up? Turns out, he does: an interpretation of the Mt Panorama circuit.

Moffat book extract
Motor racing legend Allan Moffat takes us back to his epic 1973 season – when he won both the ATCC and the (first) Bathurst 1000 – in this extract from his long-awaited autobiography, Climbing the Mountain.

Colin Russell
Among this former Lot 6 mechanic’s many achievements in motorsport was building the engine that won the first Bathurst classic held over 1000km. We sat down with Russell to hear his recollections of fettling the fastest GTs of the late 1960s/early ’70s in both quarter mile and touring car competition.

US F5000: Intro
America’s F5000 scene offered big-buck tobacco-funded prizemoney. It attracted Australia’s best open-wheeler drivers of the 1970s who invariably punched above their weight. This is the backgrounder.

US F5000: Matich
It’s fitting that Matich was the first Australian to try his hand in US Formula 5000. After all, Matich’s F5000 programme began off the back of his US Can-Am sports car effort.

US F5000: Bartlett et al
Kevin Bartlett had several reasons for hitting the US scene. He and his mate Max Stewart were among the Aussie contingent in American F5000 in 1973. They followed expatriate Australian Horst Kwech, who was among the Lola T300 runners in 1972.

US F5000: The others
Bob Muir is best known for his Army Reserve Falcon, but it was his openwheeler career during the early ‘70s where he really starred. We also looks at the assaults of John Walker, Warwick Brown, Vern and AJ.
