Lightbulb July Wheels Mag

Just bought the new Wheels July Edition. Got some interesting articles.

They have a write up on the top 10 Aussie engines made, and good to see the EBII XR6 engine in there. :s5

They should have included the Cleveland it was built in Oz 9-10 years after the yanks canned it in fact it's more Aussie than the Windsor.

I have been a faithful reader of Wheels for nearly 10 years (which is significant since I'm only 21 now) and a subscriber for much of that time. Which explains why everyone else gets their copies from the newsagency first... NOT.

I tell you, it was different back in '94...

And why the hell was the Pursuit 250 ute right up the back???
Probably ashamed of the article they wrote about it.
They didn't have all that much good to say about it.
Probably why a 2nd hand Wheels issue is still sitting on the shelf..

For crying out loud, it's a UTE!!!! Not a bloody car.
Put a bit of weight in the back and see how she goes...
Would leave those flash-in-the-pan ********* utes behind I reckon..

Still no closer to owning either though...

Original XD 351 Ute - I got one!!

HSV - I just don't want one....EVER!

My XF 3 on the tree ute is ALWAYS stuck in third......

But what was said about the Falcon?
Is it worth buying the mag or not? It's just the mag wasn't in the newsagent last nite for me to have a look at.

Another Wheels hits the shelf, and look what we have here another Holden/HSV on the cover. This time because it is HSVs 15th anniversary. Fair enough the Commodore is the top selling car in the country, but c'mon. I look forward to the day when there isn't a Holden, HSV or WRX on the cover. The highlight of the issue for me was the feature on the Focus, still such a great looking car, I can't wait until it gets to Aus.

Alongside the Top 10 Engine story, they had a short feature on some of the worst Aussie engines. Not surprisingly, the 3.2 cfi EA engine was included.
