V12

Castlemaine Rod Shop in Victoria Australia built and own this car. They are always doing something different. They did a twin blown Boss 429 in a model A at one time too.

Very well know in the hot rodding world.

Was this the one?



That's as wild as Locomotive Breath stuffing the GAA in a Mustang.

Peter Klutt of Legendary Motor cars has had some pretty nice cars roll out of their shop. Nice folks to, but you better carry your wallet in a wheelbarrow.

That's it.

The engine was basically stock so it was still quite drivable.

That guy on the show gets on my nerves. I've been mad at him ever since they completely dissed a really nice Torino Cobra on the show.

Also, if you're going to go all the way to Australia, SOMEBODY's gonna have to do at least ONE burnout. Weak.

Ok, with that said, anyone that has heard a Merlin engine run in person knows this: As cool as that engine sounded in the video, in person the sound is a wood inspiring pornographic aural stimulation that can never be forgotten!

What a cool car.
