Three Australians put this magazine together simply because of their love for rods, customs and old cars in general. They wanted an Australian-based magazine to promote and push traditional hot rod & custom building. Australia has a strong hot rod scene starting back in the mid fifties through to the modern street rod. With every decade producing a style of its own, there's a lot of build options out there - a 40's lakester, a 50's jalopy or a 60's show car. It's good to see the traditional rodders doing research and separating the eras, going for split wishbone front and rear ends over the more recent four bar set up. Tracking down a variety of bits and pieces, be it Oldmobile, Cadillac, Ford or Chevy, and getting back to the roots.
