GOLDEN MILES is an auto biography by Clinton Walker, a book about cars, people and place. Australia in the late 60s/early 70s was a young country bursting at the seams: charging through a brief window of opportunity between the end of colonialism and the beginning of globalism, the muscle car was the archetypal product of Australian suburbia, a fusion of the larrikin spirit and...

He would be the fastest man on earth - a golden god! He waited and waited ... Norman Smith was an enigma. A contemporary of Bradman, Kingsford Smith and Phar Lap, he was dumpy and shy. But when he got behind the wheel he became the Wizard, his command uncanny, the speeds breathless. ... View more info

All images are from the era in which the cars were in their heyday. While the search and research for the images has ... View more info
