Tight Pants

Here’s a shot from last year’s Scroungers Hot Rod Blowout – man what a RAD day. We have a feature on this event in the first issue of OnePercent Magazine coming out in February – just in time for the next Blowout! This year the Scroungers have a special guest attending – legendary hot rod artist and a member of the Burbank Choppers Keith Weesner. The jungle drums suggest there’s more suprises to come too. We’ll let you know when we’re allowed to let you know we know. This car has some serious history, first imported to NZ in the early 70’s from Canada by Robin Unkovich, its been featured on the cover of NZ Hot Rod two or three times and has been set up with various engines including big and small block chev and flathead as well as this 392 Hemi/GMC 671 combo. The car was campaigned by various people including John Cole, Peter Dore and Colin Prouse but has been owned by Malcolm Turner and Chris Piaggi for the last decade. Fastest car in the country for a while there. My pants are getting tight.
