Australian Muscle Car-Magazine-Current issue

Prepare to have your retinas seared, as Australian Muscle Car’s ‘Pink Issue’ is now on sale.

On pole position in AMC’s September/October 2012 edition is the LJ Torana GTR XU-1 in its most famous colour, Strike Me Pink. Our XU-1 coverage includes: an in-depth interview with legendary Holden stylist Leo Pruneau: tracks the remarkable history of the HDT’s #24C Torana crashed at Bathurst in 1972 by Colin Bond; and outlines the life and times of a pink roadgoing XU-1 that was once a paddock basher for a rabbit hunter! We pay homage (over 20 pages) to the ultimate version of Holden’s giant-killing six, and celebrate the end of a golden era of production cars.

AMC’s pink-flavoured stories also include a story on a Western Australian touring car team’s push to become a pro racing squad – with pink Walkinshaw Group A Commodores. And we’ve tracked down Leanne Edelsten’s pink Pantera.

Beyond pink, Paul Gover reveals bold new moves by Ford and Holden to add muscle to their sales appeal. ‘PG’ also introduces us – and Jamie Whincup – to a living motorsport treasure, who was on the podium of the first three ATCCs.

Meanwhile, we welcome Fred Gibson to our regular columnist ranks. Falcon fans will also be interested in our review of Ford’s big blue oval – the You Yangs proving ground.

AMC also uncovers rare evidence of the Falcon’s first race – on a little-known Queensland circuit – months before its ‘official’ debut at the inaugural Armstrong 500.
