Muscle News
Ford's Mustang-led revival; Holden's seismic sales and marketing shift that could spell the end for its racing involvement; and the Aussie who will head up GM's global design team. Plus the latest news on the Australian Muscle Car Masters.

Muscle Maniac
We remember Bill Tuckey; report on auction prices; review Hey Charger; and check out life on Neptune.

Muscle Mail
Writers recall a Sunday Too Far Away incident in Bathurst's Torana XU-1 era; tell us why they love Stonie; list their favourite liveries and show us the custom models they've made.

Columns
Racing legend Fred Gibson discusses a prickly issue in Historic racing - authenticity. Meanwhile, Paul Gover highlights the respect Commodore commands globally by recalling a 'frog dissection' in a Paris lab.

Super Rhino GT
For so long the Fairmont GTs were the red-headed stepchildren of the Falcon GT world. Today, these South African-assembled cars are increasingly recognised as a quirky chapter in Australia's performance car and manufacturing heritage.

Gricey's A9X
The stories behind cars on the HTC grid are many and varied. Tony Sawford's ex-Allan Grice A9X Torana has led a very interesting life.

Oh Captain, my Captain. Everyone loves Peter Janson. His 1979 Hardie- Ferodo 1000 runner-up A9X is a thing of beauty. The flipside features a 1972 Valiant Charger R/T E49.

Muscle Man
Alan Hamilton very nearly pulled off the biggest upset in ATCC history. He was also central to two of Ford's most dramatic moments at Bathurst. Not bad for a bloke who imported and sold Porsches for a living.

Mac's Cat
Mark Trenoweth's ex-John McCormack's Jaguar XJS is one Big Cat that is both pure-bred and feral. It's most certainly a rare breed of Historic Sports Sedan in being prolifically raced for much of its life but surviving unmolested today. It still regularly competes.

Sleuth, Slots & R-Rated
Formula 5000 is headed for a rebirth; we crunch the facts and figures on the GT versions of the Australian-designed XA Falcon and go slot car racing.

Marlboro 12 Hour
A parallel universe existed in the United States in the 1960s via an event with uncanny similarities to the Bathurst classic. And it all played out - with some Aussie flavouring - in Marlboro country.

Top 25 privateers
AMC presents the best - and best-remembered - privateers to have tackled the Bathurst 1000. If you think we've overlooked anyone, drop us an email.

HSV GTS-R
Peter Williamson (1938-2016) was the public face and voice of Racecam and a highly successful driver in his own right. 'Willo', whose role in transforming television coverage of car racing can't be overestimated, took us for a lap of his racing career a few short months before his passing.

Sacred Sites
This is the story of the original, 4.82km incarnation of the fabulous facility we now know as the 4.45km Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit. Of course, it's essentially the same circuit, give or take 370 metres in length.

Out of Action
Overlooked, overcooked and 'over-chooked' surviving classics from our motoring past - sniffed out by AMC readers.

Whaddayaknow?
Found it! The Boss Mustang raced by an unknown Canadian driver in Sandown's 1973 Australian Touring Car Championship round has popped up. Didn't expect to find this one.
