Officials running the V8 Supercar race this weekend in Perth made the mistake of telling the racers that, should they win, burnouts were forbidden en route to the podium. Telling Aussies not to burnout is clearly about as effective as telling Texans not to boast and Coloradans not to resent boastful Texans.
V8 Supercar driver Karl Reindler was forced to run for his life after his Holden Commodore went up in flames at the beginning of a race in Perth, Australia. A rear end collision with fellow driver Steve Owen punctured the car's fuel cell, causing it to explode in the unbelievable manner you see here. While…
Forget every burnout you've ever seen. Every donut. Nothing tops this blown methanol ute blasting fire from its tires. See, first you think it's awesome, and then a fire crew comes. And then it gets even more awesome.
Australia has kept the flame of truck-cars burning bright well after it was snuffed out here. Now lucky Austrailans can graft a Camaro front end onto a Holden Commodore VE ute. God bless global platforms.

Austrailia's Walksinshaw Performance continues to tease use with super Holden Commodores, this time debuting the 617-hp ultimate Series II Supercar. She's a brick house. She's letting it all hang out.

The death of Ford's Crown Victoria leaves a gaping void in law enforcement garages. This weekend, new high-tech models from Chevy, Dodge and Ford were tested for the first time by the Michigan State Police. Only Jalopnik has the results.
Australia continues to punish us for the poor box office performance of Crocodile Dundee in Los Angeles by debuting the new Redline hi-po Commodore trim and a wild-looking SV R8 Maloo Limited Edition ute. Crikey.
Devastating flooding in southern Australia has left hundreds of cars submerged in Wangaratta, including this junkyard. The worst flooding in a decade's caused State Emergency Service to evacuate several cities. More photos of the carnage below. Poor, poor Aussie sheetmetal.
If you've ever wondered how to fix a flat in the middle of the Australian Outback with no tools or spare parts, or recharge a battery over a campfire, Bush Mechanics is the show for you.
There's a magical place where they race RWD, V8-powered sedans built by American-owned companies that actually resemble the cars they're based on. It's called Australia and we wish we were there right now. Photo Credit: Ian Hitchcock/Getty Images.
