G'day,
2010 is the 50th anniversary of the Ford Falcon landing in Australia and we kick off the celebrations this issue with the XK and XL. Other Blue Oval goodies include Peter Antoine's wild XM convertible and John Taverna Junior's XD burnout machine. We haven't forgotten the Holden fans though, with Anthony Trevaskis's AGRO64, Adam Styles's insane VR ute and Tony Webb's LC - possibly the fastest column-shift car in the country. We also show you how to make a fibreglass panel, visit Gazzanats WA and much more!

The May issue of SM goes on sale 24 April - keep your eyes on www.streetmachinemag.typepad.com for updates.

Often, modifications to cars impinge on one or more of these three key areas requiring you to obtain certification from an automotive engineer. To find out more about what is required and who can help in your area, read on.
