AutoHunter Spotlight: 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air

Stunning HK Monaro set to debut at Meguiar's MotorEx


After a few COVID-induced false starts, Meguiar’s MotorEx is set to rock Melbourne Showgrounds, 30 April to 1 May.


With 26 cars to be unveiled, the Inauguration is going to take up an entire hall, with the covers coming off at 11am on Saturday.


There will be some real stunners amongst them, but the car MotorEx’s Owen Webb is most pumped about is Wayne Price’s HK GTS Monaro. In fact, he reckons it has the best bodywork he’s ever seen on a car.

VN SS Group A prototype listed for $550K

Most pre-production prototypes usually find themselves in the crusher once their service is done as test mules, and as a result, it’s extremely rare to find living examples in public circulation.

On the odd occasion a prototype does make it out alive, it’s not uncommon that it carries with it a juicy back-story, which is exactly the case with this genuine VN SS Group A.

This special-order 257 chassis was used as a pilot vehicle by HSV for drivetrain testing, and for that purpose it received full compliance tags and road registration.

The Alpine White XV2 colour is the most obvious difference between this prototype and the 302 regular-production VN SS Group As. They were all painted in the distinctive Durif Red – although three of them were quickly repainted black, including two cars used for a Tooheys giveaway campaign in 1991,which you can read more about here. .

Two pre-production Ford Mustang convertibles going to Mecum auction

Having one pre-production 1965 Ford Mustang convertible at auction would be a cool deal, but how about two of them at the same auction? That’s the case with Mecum’s sale in Glendale, Arizona, in March, when two pre-production Ford Mustang convertibles – both red, one with a white top, the other with a black top – will be auctioned.

The two Mustangs have a few other things in common, too. They are both multiple award winners at Mustang club events, Mecum says, and are both powered by 260cid V8 engines, predecessors of the iconic 289, and linked to automatic transmissions.

Back when it was VW Day

Throwback to March 2019:

The gloomy weather didn’t keep the enthusiasts away at the Day of the VW 2019, hosted by the Volkswagen Club of South Australia. Lined up with various Kombis and Beatles, spare parts vendors, and fresh coffee, there was something there for everyone. Standouts of the day had to be the black over ceiling wax red 1955 23 window Samba and the black Type 3 Panel Van. Special mention goes to the creative camouflage paint job on the Baja, which was rattle canned using tree leaves to create a stencil.

Online Car Shows Now Available

CarTorque now has Online Car Shows. Over the coming months we plan to launch a new online car show every couple of days. So keep checking CarTorque for the latest.  See Shows

How to enter car Three Simple steps

How to vote Voting Is Easy

Why online shows? CarTorque is about supporting car enthusiasts in coming together to celebrate and share their passion. We believe in building real community - people actually getting together. So our number one priority will always be supporting and sharing real car shows and clubs and groups who regularly meet and share their passion in person.

However, with Covid, real shows and meetings are not possible or severely constrained, so we thought we might support your passion by giving you an online version of a show.

How does it work?

We set up the shows and they are listed at See Shows

You scroll through the current and upcoming shows. Find one you are interested in and add your car or simply check out the great cars listed.

If you want, vote for the best car.

When the show ends, all the votes are automatically tallied and you can see the results in the completed show listing.

You can't comment on cars but you can message the owner.

Simple and fun.
