THE LOWDOWN

I’M TRYING to remember a back issue of SM from about 10 years ago. It had a red XP station wagon was on the cover; I think the number plates said SCRAPIN. It was on airbags, and I think the owner’s name was Ben. He was photographed eating popcorn and had headphones on. Any info or photos would be great.

Kris Fernandez, via Facebook HEY mate, you’re thinking of Ben Rusmus’s maroon-coloured custom XP, which we featured in SM, Mar 2000, though it wasn’t on the cover.

It was a cool thing that rode nice and low on Firestone air suspension – hence the SCRAPE number plates!
