Does anyone watch old Summernats DVDs?

It's good looking back, on how cars were modded years ago.

I actually prefer the older style of modded cars, as opposed to this high tech fancy pants bullsh*t, thesedays. (With the expection of a few classic show cars, with a modern touch)

BTW that HG, was taken at the Tomago car show, a couple of months back. Just so you know, it's not a old picture.

I don't remember them, but last time I went to the tip, I had a look through the tip shop, normally I never bother, coz it's all just pure junk, But....

this time, I found about 15 Street Machine Magazines, all in perfect condition, posters and all still in them, from the Late 70's to the early 90's. A few special editions in there too. I all but threw myself on top of them and claimed them.

Gimme one of those show cars anyday over the ones you see now.
