In our followup to the unveiling of John Bowe’s Racing Torana for the 2016 Australian Touring Car Masters back in February we caught up with JB again to find out how the first round went and how the car went about handling things.
It’s been a day three years in the making (cos every time I got asked to go I’d end up working somewhere on the day) but finally Baz and I managed to set foot on the ground of the 2016 Ballarat Swap meet.
With a bag packed full of water we were on a mission for mirrors for his Holden HR Wagon but this is what we stumbled across instead..
Baz the mechanic (aka my father in law) seems to have accidentally struck a formula to getting rich. Sure it’s going to take him 384 years to actually crack the mill with this system…but he’s well on his way already!
If you’ve never heard of the amazing app IFTTT then you’re missing out.

If you work with vehicle auctions, please answer me this: why are completely burnt out cars, completely toasted cars, cars kissed by massive fireballs and are now completely unrecognizable up for sale?
And who exactly bids on these things?
One day while attempting to climb into my Soarer for the commute to work, the lock refused to work. It jammed up more than your local freeway when a zombie outbreak occurs. This gave me a couple of options of course (after a week of climbing through the passenger door to drive anywhere)…and eventually a long hot afternoon of swearing at poorly written instructions in a central locking kit..
