The February issue of Custom Car is here! This month we tackle the serious but curious subject of naming cars, get our glad rags on for the BDR Hall of Fame Gala and enjoy a slice of ‘Cherry Pie’ in our Reader’s Rods feature.

Developments are in the pipeline that could mean big changes for two of the best-known European dragstrips. With a new eatery and seating area planned for Santa Pod and a complete upgrade and rebuild for HalFar, bigger and better seems to be the theme. But when can spectators look forward to enjoying these ambitious facelifts?

We flit back to the 50’s and join Brian Omatsu to discuss the do’s and don’ts when it comes to styling a custom car. The Californian’s ’51 Mercury Coupe is an astounding example of where creativity meets classic styling, combining both early and late 50’s customisation to produce the purple powerhouse found on page 14!

Nick McGuigan walks us through the myriad of lucky strikes he had in bringing his lowlight back to life. The Minor, with its parts found on eBay and ‘unpainted’ paint job, is a striking homage to the imaginative and well executed approach Nick and the team of customisers took in its recreation.

With the latest news, reviews and fired-up features from around the world, this month’s issue of Custom Car is set to be a classic.
