Remember Mongrel Mike? 

How about our Youth Up In Smoke shoot with Mikey Wright, fine looking Dobermans, ladies, and one hot slice of hell on four wheels 

Good. You’ve met The Val. 

Technically it’s a 1977 Plymouth Valiant, fully restored with an aggressive matte black finish. Oh, yes, she’s a looker. But in the world of motor and sport, it’s what’s under the bonnet that counts most. The South Australian ex-patrol car rocking a punchy Fireball 318 engine. She’s a tough piece of machinery whose seen her fair share of desert asphalt, black-streaked carparks and bare ass.

Until now the Val’s been in the care of Quiksilver, perhaps finding the odd (after hours) moment to stretch her legs in a *safe and responsible manner. 

Together Stab and Quik are looking to sign over her papers, free of charge, to the right suiter. However, in love and burnt rubber, there’s always a catch: The new owner must prove their devotion in 25 words or less.

Disregarding a personal invite to Lemoore, this surely has to be the best giveaway we’ve seen in surf!

Now, hit this link and tell us why you deserve to own The Val in 25 words or less.

You’ve got until 15/06/18, or she’s gone forever.

*safe and responsible is a relative to Mad Max without Clint Eastwood.
