AHR #4 – THE ESSENCE OF AUSTRALIAN HOT RODDING

Thursday, June 26, 2014

Issue #4 of Australian Hot Rodder captures the essence of Australian Hot Rodding through in-depth features and great photography of some of the best hot rods ever built in Australia and the people behind them.

DEUCE DAZE

Peter Leech was smitten by what he saw in the American hot rodding magazines in the early 1960s when he was in short pants and still going to school. He built his beloved channelled ’32 Ford roadster while still a teenager, then rebuilt it, again, and again, and again. Read about this remarkable hot rodder and his ever changing roadster.

CLASS A TUB

Bob Bowman has been building hot rods for almost 50 years and he remains one of the most innovative hot rodders in the country. His latest hot rod a remarkable handcrafted Model A tub is a classic example of his creativity.

COOL MINT COUPE

Before the Model A tub Bowman was best known for the Peppermint Pirate, the Model A Ford coupe he first built in the early 1970s. It grew out of a bunch of leftover bits to become one of our most memorable hot rods.

TRUE TO TRADITION

Warren Wilkie wowed everyone with his super sanitary Model A roadster at the first ASRF Nationals at Narrandera in 1973. Today, he builds superb traditional hot rods at his rod shop in Toowoomba. We feature his stunning ’36 Ford three-window coupe.

ROADS TO GLORY

Pukka road racers were shocked to the core when a couple of unknowns in a humble ’34 Ford roadster blew them away to win the 1934 Victorian Centenary Grand Prix at Phillip Island in 1934.

TOURING CLASS

Tasmanian Don Langdon originally rebuilt his ’35 Ford Phaeton from a rusty relic into a much-admired beauty latest rebuild on his classic.

FROM FLAT OUT TO FULL NOISE

The cackle scene is big news in America where old rails are being dusted off and demonstrated with their old school fire and fury in front of appreciative audiences all over the country. Ross Preen is Australia’s King of Cackle with his ex-John Maher racer.

HOT ROD HEAVEN

Old time hot rodders say the best Nationals were the first at Narrandera in 1973. We take a nostalgic look back a time when hot rod get-togethers were all about having fun.

THE LUCK OF THE DRAW

Malcolm Mountjoy couldn’t believe his ears when he was announced as the winner of the first ASRF Nationals raffle car at the Narrandera nationals in 1977. He still has the car today, and it’s as sharp as ever.

TWO HOT TEES

Leon Birss a thing for Henry’s Model T. He turned one into a trophy-winning beauty in the early 1960s, and after a spell away from the hobby has built another.

THE PATHFINDER

New South Welshman Brian Keegan was drag racing before we had any drag strips to race on. He is truly one of our drag racing pioneers.

AHR #4 NEARING COMPLETION

Work on AHR #4 is nearly completed and we hope to send it to the printer in the coming weeks.

In the course of the last few months we have travelled far and wide and talking to some of Australia’s top hot rodders for the stories featured in AHR #4.

We began in New South Wales where were fortunate enough to spend a few days with Bob Bowman, the builder of the legendary Peppermint Pirate Model A coupe back in the 1970s.

Bob still owns the Pirate and we couldn’t resist shooting it for a feature in our latest issue, and while we were there we just had to shoot his latest project, the Deluxe A tourer, which graces the cover of AHR #4.

The hand-built Deluxe tourer is a masterpiece of hot rodding ingenuity and Bob gave us the inside story on how it came to be and the enormous challenge in building it.

Anyone who was at the first ASRF Nationals in Narrandera in 1973 would remember Warren Wilkie’s sharp Model A roadster, the one that won the prestigious People’s Choice award.

We also travelled to Toowoomba in Queensland to check out Warren’s latest creation, a brilliant red ’36 Ford three-window coupe.

The coupe is a stunning example of the traditional hot rods Wilkie builds at his Toowoomba rod shop and he tells us how it happened.

We not only travelled north, we also went south, to Hobart in Tasmania where we caught up with Don Langdon and his reborn ’35 Ford tourer.

Langdon built the tourer back in the 1970s when it won the Top Tourer trophy at the ’77 Nationals, but he has since given the beautiful red rod a modern makeover that makes it even more stunning.

The ASRF Nationals are big business today, but in 1973 when they were first staged the focus was more on fun than finances. We sat down with the people involved in organising the first Nationals, and even revisited Narrandera to see what those early Nats were all about.

Malcolm Mountjoy thought he was the luckiest guy alive when his name was pulled out the hat to win the ’23 T-bucket on offer as the first ever raffle car at the 1977 Nationals.

The Bendigo hot rodder still owns the car and it is as sharp today as it was the day he won it.

As well as those great features we also have stories on Peter Leech’s love affair with the Deuce, Leon Birss’s Model T fascination, Ross Preen’s cackle car, and pioneering drag racer, Brian Keegan.
