Win an AMT Shelby GT350

What better kit to build than this 1:25 Shelby GT350? Moulded in black, this beast comes with all the Shelby goodies — including Kelsey-Hayes wheels and Firestone tyres, chromed valve covers, grille and centred lights, and Shelby tail lights.

Thanks to good guys at Toymod Ltd — the New Zealand AMT distributors — have given us one example of the 1:25 Shelby GT350 to give away to a lucky reader, just answer the following question:

Q: What’s the origin of the ‘350’ in the GT350’s model name?

The Jowett Jupiter turns 70

John Ball has always enjoyed tinkering with old boats and cars. He’s old enough to think having gearbox parts on newspaper on the floor of his bedroom, while the relevant car sat waiting on nail boxes, was a normal part of growing up. His passion has always tended towards old British bangers. He reckons he’s fortunate not to have got caught up in the American muscle scene.
John’s love affair with this Jupiter started in December 2015 when, with some time on his hands during a Christchurch trip, he searched online for ‘cars, before 1970 and in Christchurch’.
