1. Hot heads


Coming into the depths of winter, there is nothing fun about being caught out in the icy conditions and getting a cold bonce. Mustang Motorsport has got you covered, well your head at least, with these stylish beanies. Either will set you back a mere 20 bucks and feature the Mustang Motorsport logo on either the cable knit, or roll up style of beanie in black, with one size fitting all. Available for guys and gals they are made from the highest quality materials and are very light and comfortable to wear all day. Best of all they’ll keep you snug and warm. Get them from mustangmotorsport.com.au


2. It's a drill (stand)


Hare and Forbes Machinery House has an unrivalled range of tools and equipment to suit your every need. And if you have some drilling to do this DS-19 Compact Power Drill stand will ensure you do it like a pro. Simply attach your hand-held power drill to the stand and it’s ready to go. It features a precision rack and pinion rise and fall, for steady, smooth and accurate drilling, a 67mm drill stroke and a solid cast iron base with locating slots to allow a vice to hold it securely. A spring return is activated by a side locking knob, and it features a 90-degree swivel head for greater flexibility. It includes a 43 to 38mm reducing collar bush to secure your hand drill. Yours from $110 at machineryhouse.com.au/D585


3. Happy little Vegemites


From early 1923 Aussie kids grew up on a brown spread made from brewers yeast, called Vegemite. And next year the brand will celebrate its centenary. But you can get in on the celebrations early with this EH Holden panel van decked out with the Vegemite logo on a classic cream van. Classiccarlectables is releasing this 1:18 scale die cast beauty later this year. Like all models from classiccarlectables the attention to detail and authenticity is quite astonishing, and the Vegemite van is no different. But when it hits the shops you better get in quick, as it’s limited to just 2500 units. It’ll certainly add nicely to any collection and be a great talking point and it’s priced around $290 through hobby shops. And you are allowed to sing or whistle the tune when you clean it! Check it out at classiccarlectables.com.au


4. Camaro resto


Muscle Car Parts Australia has a wide range of reproduction spares and parts to suit American, European, Australian and Japanese muscle and sports cars. For those starting or in the middle of a resto on an early Camaro the crew at Muscle Car Parts can look after you. For example they have brand new repro 1967 Camaro left-hand quarter panels in stock now. Made from high grade steel the quarter panels are ready for mounting to the chassis and welding into place. They are finished in black undercoat and ready to be hit with the primer then painting into your favourite colour. Available now for $715 from allmusclecarparts.com.au


5. Adjustable suspenders


Aussie suspension gurus K-Mac have been making cars go around corners like slot cars and ride like limos since 1964. If you ever got a peek under a Moffat Falcon in the 1970s chances are you’d see the familiar orange colours of the K-Mac brand. For those of you owning a Commodore of the VB to VP years, K-Mac has a Stage 2 adjustable caster and camber kit for street and race use. There’s no disassembly or strut removal needed, and the patented design gives you the quickest and largest adjustment system going. The kit includes a pair of strut top mounts with a self-aligning spherical bearings plus top coil seats in radial thrust bearings for improved steering and handling with less tyre wear. Aircraft 7075 grade aluminium is employed for strength and reinforcing the strut towers. From $545 at k-mac-camber-kits.com
