Hi all, I am wondering if anybody out there has previous issues of street machine 1997-1998 containg the build sequence of the sony scorcher falcon. Im hoping that someone will be able to either scan or copy the articles and email or post them to me,

For those that dont know of it, in mid 1998 street machine magazine built a 2 door EA falcon and gave it away as a prize, The front doors were lengthened 10 inchs, rear doors were filled and custom c pillars and glass were made, The car was painted bright orange and jam-packed full of stereo.

I Hope that someone can help out, and perhaps post the articles up for all to see.

Thanks in advance
Justin

Do a search on Hilliers/ AU coupe or even a serch on the pic I posted as this will give some more info, Iwhen I spoke to the owner he stated that replacement windows cost the earth as its all custom so cutting & welding may be easy but custom trimming & glass is the challenge.

looks a bit odd, needs few things done like lowering and clear indicators!
