aussie muscle car mags

i've noticed some of these magazines have been on ebay lately, and getting good dollars. my favourites would be the editions with the cobra write up and the phase4. i enjoy it also because it tends to be non-biased. how many here have the full collection? i'm one.

Re: aussie muscle car mags

ive read street machine since i was... far too young to mention. Noticed that SM has an article in this months edition comparing the phase 1, 2, 3 & 4 GTHO's on the track. Also has the SMOTY which is a turbo and supercharged torana, not a ford I know, but just as a piece of engineering, very impressive.

i'm missing the first 4 or 5 issues which i'm a little annoyed about. those back issues were not cheap when reprinted. it's a fantasic magazine with great stories. the only magazine i read from cover to cover, not matter the stories within it. i expect the ones popping up on ebay won't be cheap..

favourite issue would be the one with bill bourke's 428 XW

SM lost the plot years ago. i only buy it now when it has articles or genuine street cars that interest me. that gtho article was good but would have prefered SM to get Moffat to drive them.

Re: aussie muscle car mags

I have to agree that Street Machine mag isn't the best.

As for AMC its awesome. I started buying them from the 428 XW edition.

The first four issues if you want to buy them are around $20 but the following ones from around edition 5-6 drop to about $6-7 delivered. I've had a few back issues purchased but some are out of print.

I'd love to have the missing ones in the collection.

Re: aussie muscle car mags

I have every edition of AMC printed, including an original copy of the first edition. I heard it was a collector's item? Then they went and reprinted it! Is it worth anything now??
Cripes! some bloke wants $400 for 14 issues!!!

Re: aussie muscle car mags

Yep ditto xcgxl, I've got and original Issue 1 and on hearing the prices they allegedly sell for I wish I bought a few more. In the early days there were not many newsagents that stocked the magazine. I am missing 2 issues later on, one I gave to Dad, the other I didn't buy as it was full of Holden stuff - I think they are still available though.
