Feature Car: Kim Smith’s Holden VY Commodore Ute


22 Dec

Kim Smith’s Holden VY Commodore ute, also known as ‘Wildfire’, has been a regular fixture on the East Coast car scene for about a decade. It has already been featured in a number of magazines, including Street Commodores, but after the tragic death of her son Matt a few years ago, Kim took some small solace in the ute, giving it a make over and incorporating a tribute to Matt via some excellent new murals along the flanks. In issue 232 of Street Commodores, Kim’s ute makes a return and you can read the entire story there, on-sale now!

12 Dec

Our photo shoot and feature story on the Webby’s Speed Shop Model-A Ford truck is in this issue of Cruzin magazine – on sale now. As per one of our recent blog posts, the shoot actually made the front cover, our first for Cruzin.

The original, steel truck has been part of Webby’s collection for years and has just undergone a full rebuild at his Carrington, NSW workshop. Powered by a twin-throttle HSV V8, it’s built for the road and has seen plenty of kilometres over the years, hauling parts and attending shows all over the East Coast of Australia. Be sure to pick up a copy of Cruzin issue 170 on newsstands now!

Sneak Peek: Jason Hill’s VN Holden Commodore


05 Dec

Here’s a sneak peek at Jason Hill’s turbocharged LS-powered VN Commodore, photographed for Street Commodores magazine. We’re just about to sit down and write up the story on this beast. It sounded like Hell was coming to breakfast on the day of the shoot – which also coincided with a huge electrical storm in Jason’s hometown of Newcastle, NSW.
