Muscle Maniac
Falcon restorer, Cameron Manewell, is still pinching himself that he ended up supplying a pair of coupes for Mad Max: Fury Road as the bare-metal 'Razor Cola'. Beverage: The spirit of your choice - mixed with you-know-what.

Muscle Mail
Readers recall some memorable prangs, remember Frank and Leo and give Bo a great rap. Beverage: A schooner of Old.

Fred Gibson's memories of the 1990 Sydney Nissan 500 and Paul Gover's tales of upsetting car company chiefs. Beverage: Crabbie's Ginger Beer.

Star Car: Brabham HB
The Brabham Torana was more show pony than pony car, but it got the ball rolling on a decade of sporty Toranas. Beverage: A pint of Black and Tan.

Star Car: Moss Pacer
Chrysler Australia turned to a London-based member of racing royalty to extol the virtues of its new engine. Then it created a signature edition model that, erm, didn't carry his signature. Beverage: A G & T please, m'dear.

Star Car: DJGPT Falcon
The Dick Johnson Grand Prix Turbo road car occupies a special place in the hearts of Blue Oval devotees. But Dick wasn't the first choice for the car's creators. Beverage: A XXXX (somewhat) Bitter.

Kiwi L34 Torana

Top 25
Inspired by our Brock Falcon B8 feature, AMC presents 25 of Perfect Pete's non-Holden treats - both racecars and signature edition roadies. Beverage: Clayton's - the drink you have when you're not having a drink.

Sacred Sites
