Few cars are as popular on the Australian street machine scene as Gary Myers’ 1966 Mustang. The vehicle has become one Street Machine A Summernets favorite from day one and led Gary to four Summernets Burnout Champion titles and two Burnout Masters.
And that’s not to mention a number of go-to-whoa victories, racing at 170mph on Lake Gairdner, the Ultimate Burnout Challenge in 2011 and the small matter of Street Machine of the Year in 2001.
In 2014, Gary handed the keys to the Mustang to his son Jack, who gave it a new identity as S1CKO and earned his own Burnout Masters crown at Smyrnatus 32.
Muzzy has continued to evolve over the past 35 years and now the car is going back into the future for Summernauts 35. This time Gary would be back behind the wheel and the car would once again be named the GM176.
The look harkens back to when the car first gained its notoriety, featuring five-slaughter rims, original wheelie bars and basic black paint.
The plan is to compete the car in this form for a couple of years, then return it to street duty permanently.
Gary will be launching the Last Chance Wild Card Burnout Comp on Thursday, don’t miss it!
