We’ve teamed up with Industry & Supply, purveyors of top-quality and painfully cool T-shirts, to bring you a strictly limited series of top-notch Tees starring Street Machine cover cars. These shirts are properly printed on quality stock, available in a wide range of sizes and colours, and in standard short-sleeve or RWYB-friendly long-sleeves.
There’s a new one every month – currently we’re on Pete Levick’s Gas Guzzler Austin gasser from issue #2, so don’t hang around. Why not collect them all? You’ll find them on www.covercarshirts.co.uk, but here’s a piece of advice from me – the sizes are Euro standard, not American standard, so order the next size up from what you’d usually order.
Star Of Texas
Shopping is a chore at the best of times, and a patience-testing nightmare at others. If you could pick one place that you’d actually enjoy shopping at, I bet it’d look like this: Summit Racing Equipment’s new facility in Arlington, Texas, which should be operational by the time you read this. You know how they say everything’s bigger in Texas?
Try 700,000 square feet of speed parts, racing parts, classic parts, tools, accessories… I may have to stop there and go for a lie-down. Phase one – the warehouse, storage, conveyors etc – should be up and running by now, while phase two – more warehousing, offices and, wait for it, a Retail Superstore! – will follow closely behind.
If you happen to be passing 2200 East Interstate 20 Freeway in Arlington and fancy stopping by, we’d recommend you write off the rest of the day – Aladdin’s Cave will have nothing on this place. See www.summitracing.com for more.
Everyone knows the Model T, but did you know that the Model TT, the commercial chassis, is 100 years old this summer? Production of the lengthened one-ton chassis cab began in 1917 in America, and later came to Ford’s plant in Trafford Park, Manchester.
Red All Over
Just a quick ‘phwoar’ picture for you – this is the 2018 Ford GT ’67 Heritage, a limited edition of a limited edition, in red-with-white-stripe livery matching that on the Le Mans-winning 1967 GT40 driven by Dan Gurney and AJ Foyt.
TVR celebrates its 70th anniversary this year, and will mark the occasion in style with the introduction of the all-new model from the revitalised brand at the Goodwood Revival on September 8th to 10th. The new model harks back to the days of the Griffiths by using Ford power, this time a Cosworth-fettled version of the 5.0 Coyote V8.
