Latest Issues out now
With NZ Petrolhead’s world headquarters closed due to level four lockdown, the latest issue was put together from the team’s homes. It was available from Monday September 20 everywhere except Auckland. If you’ve been suffering through lockdown in Auckland you’ll be able to get yours through contactless pick up from Wednesday September 22. Alternatively if you’re ordering parts and live in Auckland, ask your supplier to pop a copy in your parcel. Subscriber copies went out as per normal. There’s not a lot of event coverage, as you’d expect, but you will find a comprehensive coming events section that outlines what’s been cancelled, postponed, and going ahead as planned. We bring you a couple of ‘phantom’ car features: a ’66 Chevy Impala four-door sedan that’s been made into a ute; and a ’58 Ford Fairlane with a custom, sleek, hardtop grafted on. And we introduce Holley Russell, a young off-road racer who’s fast. Very fast. You’ll also find the incredibly handy lift-out drag racing calendar – nail that sucker to your lounge wall. Classified ads, motor sport, news, 4WDs, nostalgia… your lockdown NZ Petrolhead fix has it all going on.
