Feature Car: Brendyn Wardell’s Holden VL Commodore


16 Apr

Brendyn Wardell has had a long history in the Aussie car scene, starting with his well-known and loved black VK Commodore known as STR8AZ back in the early ’00s. In fact, this feature on his latest blown LS-powered VL, 2NGRY2, marks his fourth Street Machine feature (appearing in the March 2020 issue). He also had cars appear in Street Commodores and others.
Brendyn’s latest car started as an original N/A Calais and today plays host to a 421ci LQ9-based LS stroker with an injected 8/71 supercharger on top. Built almost entirely in the shed with mate Billy Shine, the VL features die-straight panel work and sumptuous blood-red leather trim.

Feature Car: Alex Fenech’s Holden LX Torana


09 Apr

I love it when I get to shoot cars that nail the ix between new-school and old-school. Alex Fenech’s Holden Torana does just that with a classy, classic black exterior with 15in Weld rims and a Weiand blower out the bonnet. But peer a little deeper and you’ll find the blower bolted to a 6L L98-based LS motor. Just magic!

Alex Fenech’s Holden Torana was featured in the February 2020 issue of Street Machine.

Feature Car: Tony Rohr’s Holden VH Commodore


03 Apr

My photo shoot of Tony Rohr’s twin-turbo Holden VH Commodore drag car was featured in the February 2020 issue of Street Machine magazine. 77-year-old Tony built the 427ci LS-powered monster in his shed at home from a rusty hulk.

Dressed in Tony’s favourite Sting Red paint, the car boasts a big-cube LS that utilises an RHS block, supported by a pair of Garrett GTX3582R turbos and a T400 auto. There’s a Ford 9in rear out back and a cage weaves right through the car from front to back.

When was the last time you heard about a 77-year-old building – and driving – an eight-second race car!? Tony Rohr’s Holden VH Commodore is one slick beast!
