BLOOD SWEAT & GEARS sets out to discover Australia’s best car and the driver behind the wheel.

After an extensive Australia wide search for the country’s best cars, seven finalists are chosen to compete in a series of challenges that will determine Australia’s best car driver over eight weeks of challenges. The grand final is played out in front of a crowd of 50,000 car lovers at the annual Spring Nationals in Melbourne.

The contestants are:
Andrew – Japanese Import (Nissan 200SX) To Andrew, performance and driving comes first, he likes to live life to full boost!
Andy – American Muscle (Chevy Corvette) Andy reckons life’s about grunt, that’s why he’s got 540 cubic inches of chevy muscle.
Dave – Classic Australian (Holden LJ Torana) Dav’es got a V8 Torana – it may be a small car but it gives a big performance.
Dimitri – Classic Australian (Ford GT Falcon) Dimitri’s the big man – that’s why he’s got 427 cubes of Falcon GT.
Dominic – Performance Rotary (Mazda RX7) Dominic’s built one of the most modified and powerful RX7’s in Australia – he takes his car very seriously and is in this to win it.
Jeremy - Australian Muscle (Holden Commodore VL HDT) Jeremy idolises Peter Brock. His car is a Brock original.
Mohamed - High Performance European (Ferrari 350 Modena) Mohamed has a need for speed. Oh, and he’s the king of bling. (check out the gold tooth)

Hosted by newcomer Scott McGregor with official judges Ian Luff and Nathan Luck, BLOOD SWEAT & GEARS is more than just a car show. As well as showcasing the latest innovations in street car modifications, it will be a clash of egos as Australia’s most passionate car lovers will battle it out to be recognised as the best.

Thanks for bringing this thread back up. It motivates me. Getting of the computer now to go work on my car. That is still the baddest MOFO on the street. I wish I could see that car in person.
