Here are some of the things you will learn by picking up Australian Muscle Car’s March/April edition:

– Peter Brock’s HDT Special Vehicles operation was actually a dual-state operation. The South Australian Holden dealer who set Brock up in business breaks his silence on his role in creating the Brock juggernaut of the early 1980s. Vin Kean tells AMC the real story behind the development of the original ‘Brock Commodore’, the VC of 1980 and ’81.

– Ford Australia president Bob Graziano’s dream car. In the first of a series of interviews with the Australian motor industry’s heavy hitters, AMC gets to know Graziano and puts some burning questions to him.

– HRT founder Win Percy feared for his life when he crashed Allan Grice’s Commodore at Bathurst. AMC eavesdrops on a chat between cartoonist John Stoneham and one of his favourite characters from his four-decade career illustrating Australian motorsport. In part two of Stonie’s interview with Percy, the 1990 Bathurst 1000 winner and HRT founder recalls his 10 Panorama pilgrimages in Commodores.

– Why Jim Richards is chucking his Javelin into the TCM fight. The Touring Car Masters craftsman tells Tony Whitlock how his new machine came together and explains why he has opted for American muscle.

– How an Aussie ‘tourist’ stumbled across the most incredible collection of American muscle cars, which includes an Aussie-built machine. Eye candy at every turn.

– How in the late 1970s a small band of West Australians – mostly rural Ford dealers – combined for two madcap Bathurst 1000 assaults in a Falcon Hardtop.

– Where the first ‘modern-day’ street race down under was held. Hint: it was Peter Brock and Larry Perkins’ second last race together. Readers will also learn that Dick Johnson raced a Group A version of the XE Falcon. True!
