Welcome to Freak of the Week #7. Every week, Weimann, Chin, and I look for something balls off the wall crazy, polarizing, or just weird and worth talking about.
This week’s search took me to a continent that I know relatively little about. However, there is one thing about Australia’s car culture that is very clear. They love their Supercar V8 Series. And so do I.
But before there was the Supercar V8 we know now, there was the Australian Touring Car Championship. Beginning in 1960, this era created some of the baddest cars I’ve ever seen.
This week’s Freak of the Week isn’t exactly about a car, but it is a moment for me to share with you the fascinating culture of the Land Down Under– its motor sports and its sports cars.

No, actually I don’t know of a car with a longer name.
