In this issue: the date set for Falcon's final flight; Commodore VFII's tweaks and facelift; the end of the Holden V8; Mustangs coming for Christmas; and new 6.3l Chrysler 300 SRT8 is paradise for gangstas.

Muscle Maniac
You're excused if you've overlooked the Fairmont hardtop's only touring car start, in the 1977 HangTen 400 at Sandown. We also recall the Castrol Cougars and showcase a Brock VL in My Muscle Car.

Muscle Mail
The Stirling Moss Special that crashed out of existence; memories of Bathurst 1977; the merits of the 6 Hour vs 12 Hour; debating the Top 25 Classic Aussie Muscle Cars… and more.

Racing legend Fred Gibson provides a different, behind-the-scenes perspective to our cover story about Larry Perkins' 1995 Bathurst victory; while Paul Gover recalls some of the car industry's daftest naming ideas.

Great Escape 1
Twenty years after Perkins and Ingall snatched Bathurst victory from the jaws of defeat, we recall that it was all about preparation and perseverance.

Great Escape 2
AMC recalls a high-flying GT-HO from Bathurst 1970 that lived to race another day and beat the works cars.

Great Escape 3
We tracked down the survivor of the Bathurst 1000's most violent, non-fatal crash. Imagine spearing off Conrod and hitting a tree.

The 1971 Chrysler Valiant Stirling Moss Special- as featured in issue #82 - back-to-back with Allan Moffat's Coca-Cola Mustang from 1969.

Great Escape 4
Found! The top-secret LJ GTR Torana V8 prototype that escaped the 'Dead Sled' After 43 years the truth is out.

Muscle Man
There's a lot more to Neil Crompton and his racing achievements than the talking head we all know. A co-driver who partnered Peter Brock, Craig Lowndes, Glenn Seton, Brad Jones and Wayne Gardner at Bathurst and never let them down. Proper respect, now.

Muscle Car Masters
The 10th anniversary Australian Muscle Car Masters celebrated 25 years since the venue's first big touring car bash. The AMC team takes you on track, into the pits, round the paddock and back in time, for this report.

Toy Shop Pantera
It's 30 years since a sleek, ground-effects de Tomaso Pantera with a Ford V8 briefly hit Aussie tracks... before exiting stage left. Heavens to Murgatroyd!

V8 Sleuth & R-Rated
Aaron Noonan's hot on the trail of newly restored muscle. And how about a Valiant Charger hatchback with Aston Martin looks - another 1970s flash of brilliance that Chrysler put in the 'too hard' basket … or should that be boot?

Wolves in Wool II
We nominate our second batch of Aussie-built cars in plain wrappers that go like the clappers. Well, faster than their looks suggest, at least. There are two luxo-cruisers, three mid-size sixes and a tiddler.

Sacred Sites
The Hume Weir circuit really was between a rock and hard place, but gave local motorsport enthusiasts two decades of top name action before it was dammed to closure.

Out of Action
Lost in NZ, burnt-out in Tassie, rusting in NSW, marooned in SA - our readers wander far and wide in search of abandoned automotive gems.

A moment's silence please, for the 1970s Bathurst campaigns that failed to make the grid. We pause to remember the teams that practised but didn't race. A time when Sunday proved too far away.
