GREAT SAVINGS ON AHR!

Wednesday, August 05, 2020

Sadly, Coronavirus is still with us, and looks like keeping us in lockdown for some time yet.

Normally at this time of year we would be getting ready to hit the road to attend the rod runs, shows and swap meets that in other times would take place in the coming weeks and months.

With events cancelled and state borders closed we can’t get out to meet our readers and connect with those who like to buy AHR directly from us.

While we can’t get out to you we’re still here and getting on with business as best we can in these trying times.

To make it easier we’ve cut the price of AHR while the virus is here.

Normally, the price of a single copy of AHR is $29.95, but for the foreseeable future we’ve reduced it by 25 per cent to just $22.50.

AHR SAVINGS

The discounted price not only applies to the latest issue, AHR Number 9, but to all past issues as well, so you can catch up with the latest issue, or on any of the back issues you might have missed.

Not only have we cut the price of AHR, we also discounted the cost of mailing it out to you.

Good old Australia Post charges us $12.20 to send a copy of AHR to you wherever you are in Australia, but we’ve capped the cost of postage to $10. That’s another saving of 18 per cent.

But even better, buy two or more copies of AHR and we’ll send them to you post-free. That’s right we won’t charge you for postage.

To order your copies of AHR Number 9 or any of our great back issues, simply go to www.australianhotrodder.com.au and click on the 25%-off button at the top of our home page, or phone 0409 705 062 and we’ll take your order directly over the phone.

The Long Wait is Over AHR #9 is now in Stock

Tuesday, July 07, 2020

It’s been a long time coming but the wait is finally over with the arrival of Australian Hot Rodder Issue #9 from the printer.

AHR #9

Since its arrival we’ve been flat out packing and posting copies pre-ordered by our loyal readers, and the feedback we’ve received has been positive and enthusiastic.

AHR #9 is jam-packed with great features and stunning photography of a selection of new and older Australian hot rods, plus features on drag racing and hot rodding art.

The cover story tells the tale of a channelled ’32 roadster built in the mid-1960s by Queensland rodder, Gary Wright, right through to its stunning rebirth by NSW Central Coast rodder, Michael Morris.

Our telling covers the initial build by Wright, the 1970s rebuild by George Kotevich, and all of the owners before Morris stumbled over it and decided to faithfully restore it the Wright way.

There’s plenty more in AHR #9, like the Sedoupe show star from the 1960s, plus Glen Rewell’s stunning creations crafted from old lawn mower parts, ‘Flat Out’ Frankie Robinson’s adventures at the wheel of his Model A roadster, Keith Stamp’s love of hot rodding and historic racing, ‘Wild Man’ Jim Walton’s time at the wheel of a Fuel Altered drag racer, Rob Hoskins love of early Fords, and Rob Carroll’s classic Deuce highboy roadster.

All of that at the special discount of 25% off the regular cover price while the Covid 19 pandemic is with us.

The 25% discount also applies to all back issues of AHR #9 which makes it a great time to pick up any past issues you’ve missed out on.

Issue #7 of Australian Hot Rodder has arrived from the printer so we thought it was time to open the pages and let you sample the great features we’ve assembled for you.

AHR-06

Featured on the cover of AHR #7 is Jeff Cooper’s stunningly detailed old-style Model A Tudor, a car that helped kick-start the popularity of nostalgia hot rods.

AHR-06

Talented young hot rod builder, Steven Alldrick, allowed us into his Deluxe Rod Shop to follow the build of David Murphy’s beautiful channelled Deuce roadster.

AHR-06

Few racers were more popular in the 1960s than Ken Spence, the young farmer from country Victoria who delighted in putting on a tyre-smoking show in his Cobra Zephyr.

AHR-06

When Phil Taylor decided he wanted a hot rod he turned to his mates at Rotunda Revival who built him a very sharp ’60s-styled ’35 coupe.

AHR-06

Going 200 mph was walk in the park for Peter Warren and his home-built belly tanker.

AHR #6 LAUNCHED WITH A BANG

Tuesday, October 18, 2016

Melbourne turned on its best weather for the launch of AHR#6 and hot rodders came from near and far to join in the fun. Peter Ingram, then owner of the fabulous ’32 tub on the cover drove down from Albury, Michael McLachlan made the journey down from Wagga, while others came from all over Melbourne. Leigh Priggens’ old school ’32 coupe took centre stage. Among other cars seen at the event were Doug Smith’s sharp new ’34 coupe, Ron Smith’s recently acquired ’32 coupe, and Jason Davin’s cool Model A coupe.

As has become tradition with the launch of each new issue of Australian Hot Rodder we are calling all hot rodders to the launch of AHR #6.

A LOOK INSIDE AHR#6

Tuesday, August 16, 2016

With the shipment now on its way from the printers we thought it timely to give you a look at the many features in AHR #6.

The journey that began as AHR #5 was being sent out to our loyal readers has been a long one, but we think it’s been worthwhile as we’ve been able to assemble a fine collection of features on some of the most interesting characters and finest cars in Australian hot rodding.

AHR-06

There are few more iconic Australian hot rods than Peter Swift’s T-bucket. Built back in the early ’60s when hot rodding was just finding its feet in this country, Swifty built a standout car that inspired a legion of aspiring young hot rodders to get into the hobby. We sat down with Swifty and listened as he told us his tale firsthand.

AHR-06

The tourer has never been the most popular body style with hot rodders, most preferring coupes or roadsters, but Peter Ingram showed how good a tourer, or tub, could be when he built his beautiful black Deuce tub in the late- ’80s. Pete took the time to tell us how it came to be, and its tale of traveling to America and back again.

AHR-06

No one did more to spread the word about hot rodding in Australia than Eddie Ford. Eddie and his mate Jeff Dellow started Custom Rodder magazine in 1967. It was the first Australian hot rod magazine published by hot rodders with a passion for the new and exciting hobby. Eddie and Jeff took the time to tell us how the magazine came about.

AHR-06

You don’t see many hot-rodded Dodge Victory Six coupes, but Paul Body and Stewart Campbell created one very slick hot rod with a very traditional character.

AHR-06

Bob Hamilton and his Model A bucket were larger than life parts of the fledgling Sydney hot rod scene in the 1960s. David Cook managed to sit down with Hamilton who told us how it was back then.

AHR-06

George Kotevich is best known for the channelled ’32 roadster he owned in the 1960s. Gary Wright originally built the historic roadster but sold it to George in the late 1960s. It became even more famous after George rebuilt it. George’s current Model A ride is reminiscent of that great old hot rod and he tells us all about it.

AHR-06

Old Holdens were as cheap as chips in the 1960s and customised early models were a common sight on our roads. It’s rare today to see these old cars, but Michael Pearson has managed to create the vibe with his custom beauty.

AHR-06

Ross Supple loves the challenge of bringing a rusty old Ford back to life as a bright new hot rod. As he told us when we went to visit him he’s been doing just that for years, and there’s no sign of him slowing any time soon.

AHR-06

There’s nothing better than an old school style ’32 coupe and Leigh Priggen has perfectly captured that old-time feel with his freshly built Hemi-powered Deuce.

AHR-06

Greg Goddard built and raced what is widely regarded as Australia’s first dragster when he competed in his flathead-powered rail at the races staged at Pakenham in the late 1950s.

AHR-06

Len Case can’t go anywhere in his red T-bucket without coming home with a trophy. It simply stands out from the crowd and attracts attention every time he takes it out.
