Readers Machine Issue 14

Here’s a monster of a reader’s machine, although, strictly speaking, it’s a reader’s customer’s machine. “I grew up with Street Machine magazine,” says Steve Robinson, from Somerset. “I was inspired by Andy Saunders’ creations, and went into repairing and painting cars etc for a living… 30 years ago, now! This ’69 Camaro is an absolute beast, with a 454 big-block, Hurst shifter and a thirsty appetite!

I completely repainted the car, trying to recreate that patina look. The owner is very pleased – he was after a mean look requiring very little maintenance, as he just wants to drive it. I was also lucky enough to drive it when I took my son, Sam, to his prom – Sam helped me prep the car, so he deserves the ride…”
