Klaxon Special Edition 200 Is Out Now.


The January – February 2011 Klaxon has been released from the vault.
It is full of recent summer time events from the west coast of Oz and has more pictures than a 5 sets of baseball cards.
Edition 200 has taken since March 1973 to arrive and burned out several editors along the way, but it is here. It has been chipped out of stone, painted on cave walls, typed onto ink stencils and danced from the keyboards of modern computers.

Navigate the menu to the left and down load it automatically in PDF format. Once it is on your computer or other modern gadget, use your PDF viewer to magnify it and get an even better look.

Bring in 2010 with a dose of Klaxon. Jan Edition ready now.

jan_2010_cover.JPG No holding back now. A new year dawns with plenty to do. There are plenty of new hot rod projects starting this year, possibly even a new one for me.
The excitement of the approaching local Australian Regional Hot Rod Nationals, to be held on the coast at Busselton, is increasing while last minute preparations and rod building is being done for the Easter event.
Being the most isolated capital city in the world and over 2000 miles from most of the country’s population (Australia), having over 85 interstate rodders entered in the event, is fantastic for the organizers and a great commitment by the entrants. It takes two reasonable days of daylight driving (~1500Kms) just to reach the border of the next state. Travelling at night is risky with plenty of large animals waiting to be hit. I am brimming with excitement and looking forward to Easter. I haven’t had a hot rod at a major or regional nationals since 1994, where I had the Willys coupe and my 34 Plymouth sedan entered. Where did that time go?

Meanwhile, more immediate excitement can be had by sitting back, down loading and reading the latest Klaxon magazine.
Simply navigate the menus to the left and select the edition or editions you wish to read.
If you didn’t receive an email to advise you that the January 2010 edition is now available, send your email address to and you will receive notification in the future.
