THIS IS WHY WE DON’T HAVE MUCH SUPER

1 THE BEAST HDT PACK

With Christmas creeping ever closer, HDT has come up with this excellent Christmas gift pack for the special Torana enthusiast in your life. Inlcuded in the pack is a t-shirt, a HDT keyring which doubles as a bottle opener and a stubby holder for when you’ve cracked a cold one in the garage after a hard day of tinkering. $35 bit.ly/HDTXMAS

2 CUBA’S CAR CULTURE

Following the coup perpetrated by communist rebels in 1959, Cuba’s once rich appetite for new cars suddenly ceased due to trade embargos enforced by the regime. As a result, Cuba’s car culture has been uniquely and adversely affected, and this very interesting book looks at the automotive landscape of this time-warped country. $45 bit.ly/CUBACAR

3 VIP TRACKER

We’ve all had that moment where we’ve parked our pride and joy in a dodgy part of town, started to walk away from it and thought “If it was ever going get purloined, it’d be now”. Well, now you can fit your car with this GPS tracker that can not only track your car via an app, but you can also remotely cut power to the starter motor from your phone! What a great idea! $199 bit.ly/GPSVIPTR

4 RAMBO LAMBO

When most people hear the word Lamborghini, they usually imagine super wide rear tyres, massive wings, matte paint and scissor doors. What they don’t think of is a military style 4x4 SUV bearing the badge of the raging bull, but that’s exactly what the LM002 was, and Matchbox have decided to celebrate with a model that you and the kids can both enjoy. $6.99 toyrus.com.au

5 OFF THE CLOCK

Got an old XW or XY but don’t have a clue what the hell MPH on the speedo means, or maybe your just sick of converting the speed shown on your dash to KM/H. Rare spares has obviously thought the same thing because they’ve made these ace decal speedos so can swap out the miles for kilometres. $18.66 bit.ly/XWXYSPEEDO
