1. MAX TRAX - SLOT CAR TRACK

Max Trax are just the blokes to see if you want a slot car track, in your shed or man cave. We’re not talking about a click together track out of a box. No, no, no. We are talking about a custom-made track to your design. Built up to six lanes so you can race all your mates. It sure as hell beats flogging about on computer games. The tracks are laid on a timber base with folding legs.

Getting a single Weber carb properly tuned is a tricky affair. Trying to tune three of the buggers is an art form. For those lucky enough to own an E38 or E49 Charger, the good folk at Hemi Performance have these splendid looking repro triple Weber Air Cleaner assembly sets that are ready to bolt straight on. Made of a high quality chrome base and lid with factory correct matte filter mesh, cast with the factory part number for authenticity.

4. HSV MINI BAR

Are you an HSV fan who enjoys a cooling ale or wine while cooking a BBQ or watching the telly? Then this tropical rated bar fridge is perfect for you. It has red LED strip lighting and triple glazing, so it works a treat in hot areas and alfresco locations, like a workshop or shed. You’ll always have an icy cold one or three ready for when mates drop by. And if they arrive with a slab, chuck ‘em all in, cos this fridge swallows 38 x 375 ml cans. And you can lock it as well. It also comes with a one-year warranty.

5. SCALED TO PERFECTION

Mention the name Pininfarina, and petrolheads’ eyes glaze over with images of Alfa Romeos, Ferraris, Maseratis and other exotics. One of Pinins earliest successes was the Cisitalia 202 Berlinetta, possibly the most famous post-war car to leap off the Pininfarina drawing board.

This 1:43 scale model is exquisitely detailed and sits on an an aluminium base with Pininfarina logo and comes with a print of the car.
