The Healey Factory in Melbourne is the Australian agents for Dayton Wire wheels. These are a direct replacement replica of the Rudge spline-drive wire wheels, found on many classic sportscars and will transform the look of yours. Dayton’s design uses forged hubs instead of stamped steel and Perma-True technology, for better handling and a smoother ride. The rims, hubs and nips have a four-layer nickel-chrome finish and the spokes are highly polished stainless-steel wire in 64, 70 & 72 spoke configurations.



Own a Drifter or want one in your shed? Given their scarcity, it’s easier to show your love for the Chrysler with a Drifter throwback tee, featuring the famous chariot on both sides. These 100 per cent cotton, or mixed fabric tees come in both slim and classic, fit many sizes and colours. The printer sources the shirts from manufacturers committed to improving cotton farming practices through the Better Cotton Initiative. And they look very cool.

They have these new, reproduction right-hand bonnet hinges. They’re made to last and are easy to fit. Say goodbye to the headaches and get on the net or the blower now.

Ever looked at an oil filter and thought, this would make a fabulous lamp? We haven’t either. But Porsche has. The exclusive 911 spotlight (not oil filter you notice) serves as a light and a design piece. More likely a talking point. It’s made from a genuine 911 oil filter and retains its original black printing and is operated by a switch on the base. The LED oil filter, sorry spotlight belts out an impressive 3500 Kelvin and 160 lumens.

Made in Germany, it costs $455.
