Gearbox: Car-related Products

Presented by

We've got lots of great car-related ideas that you could use for gifts, or to just spoil yourself. From car scale models to turbo badges & turbo hair dryers, we've got it covered

Biante car models:

Biante -model

No bloke has ever been disappointed with unwrapping a scale model classic car, probably. So it’s fair to say Biante, the scale model supremos, have hit a high-note pitching a Surfer Orange XW GT-HO Phase II in 1:18 scale. They’re only making 804 of them so get moving. See biante.com.com.au

 

Cummins Cars EZ Electric Power Steering System:

Power -steering

The fully adjustable and agreeably silent EZ Electric Power Steering system is a powered replacement for your original steering column and features a load sensing ECU. Just swap in for your old non-assisted column and refit the original underdash panels. Head to cumminscars.com for more info.

(There's more info here, you'll just need to use the page translater ezpowersteering.nl/)

 

Rare Spares badges

Rare -spares

Unlike those crummy aftermarket Super Nintendo controllers, this is a far more desirable memento of the ‘Turbo’ craze of the 80s. Is your VL jet missing its ‘back off’ badge? Well, get clicking to Rare Spares and reacquaint your VL with its rightful signature. rarespares.net.au  

 

TheSamba.com:  Vintage Tyre Pressure Gauge

Tyre -pressure -gauge

Nothing will ruin family holiday more than being 30mins from the nearest servo with kids screaming in the back and that nagging feeling you should’ve checked your pressures before leaving. If you need to keep everything in your concours glovebox retro, hit up
thesamba.com

 

Classic Car Seats

Car -seats

Sometimes factory seats just don’t hit the mark. Getting a custom seat means you can tailor it your ‘unique’ frame and build. Best thing is they’ll suit virtually any era pre-’90s. For a greater sense of comfort while clipping apexes or cruising your favourite back road visit classiccarseats.com for more information. 

Peter Brock: How Good Is This! The Real Story
By Wayne Webster

Brock -book

It’ll be a decade next year since the King of the Mountain waved his last chequered flag. With over 200 photos, a tribute from his daughter, Peter Brock : How Good is This! is a fantastic read for any motoring enthusiast, be they red, blue or far from either. penguin.com.au for retailers and settle in for a summer of Brock.

Ferrari-blasted hair dryer

Ferrari -hairdryer

Ferrari claims to have spent ages tuning the sound of their latest turbo V8s. But does the 488 GTB sounds as good as the Babyliss Volare, a Ferrari-branded hair dryer? Blast your follicles loose with 2.2kW of power, delivered through a six-speed (not a manettino) switch. Visit hairhousewarehouse.com.au and search for Ferrari.

Scalextric cars

 

Scalextric -cars

Scalextric is one of those toys that guys can’t wait to buy for their kids and then never let them have a go. It’s easy to see why when the latest range of cars includes a lovely Brock Torana, Moffat Fords and even our own John Bowe’s mighty Mustang. Visit scalextric.com for more details.
