What’s inside the NZV8 222 July/August Issue

17 June 2024

Take a look at the featured highlights from Issue 222!

THE COVER STAR! - 1968 DODGE CHARGER

With a Dodge Viper V10 and a couple of turbos, Kent Lobb’s ’68 Charger packs a bite that will bring you to your knees!

When looking at Kent Lobb, it would be easy to think he’s one of those guys with all the luck. At just 29 years old, he holds the keys to arguably one of the toughest Dodge Chargers ever built in the country — a car packing a twin-turbo Viper V10 with tough looks to match.

 

ALL THAT GLITTERS - 1956 FORD F100

Just when you think you’ve seen patina pickups, along comes one that’s bigger and better than the rest

It takes a lot to have a car that stands out at Repco Beach Hop, but Ray Foot sure achieved that this year with this gorgeous ’56 Ford F100. While the truck appeared to come out of nowhere, the Queensland number plates were a giveaway that there was a bit of a story to tell.

SLICK FISH - 1970 PLYMOUTH CUDA

Ivan Booth’s owned the rest and now he decided to build the best, a slick 1970 Plymouth Cuda
There was a very high chance that you’d never be seeing this car in the pages of NZV8. Its creator, Ivan Booth got so fed up with the build part way through that he put it up for sale. Luckily sense prevailed and he saw the four-year project through to completion.

TWIZEL SHOW AND SHINE

From humble beginnings to a town full of Classics
The seventh Twizel Show and Shine took place on 8–10 March, and although it’s still relatively new to the car community event calendar, word has reached far and wide about this fantastic weekend of activities, attracting a record number of people this year.

TRAIL BLAZER - 1996 CHEVROLET TAHOE

Just when you think that every low rider is a four door impala on rusty wire wheels, along comes something to break the mould!

Love it or hate it, the low rider scene is an interesting one. There’s lots that has been said about the origins of the scene, and how it’s evolved over the years, although less about why the common car of choice is an Impala of some description.
