Feature Car: Scott and Gary Bamford’s Ford Hot Rods


02 May

We’ve heard of father/son projects before and we’ve even seen some great ones, but this pair of Fords – namely a 1928 roadster and 1932 5-window coupe – take the cake. Owned by Scott and Gary Bamford, these sweet Fords are enough to make anyone salivate just a little. Father Gary started his black roadster way back in the 1980s, but Scott’s build was much shorter and you can read all about the story on these two in the latest issue (14) of Heavy Duty Hot Rods, on-sale now.

Gary’s roadster is powered by an N/A 302ci Windsor V8 and is a very classic affair. Scott’s ’32 coupe is powered by a stonking great blown small-block 327ci GMC small-block making an estimated 600hp; however that’s untested at this stage. Like his dad’s rod, the coupe is built around a totally classic formula and it works, as the pictures prove.

All the exterior shots were done with natural light only, however strobist fans will find lighting information for the detail shots and the portrait on our Flickr page, where you can also download FREE desktop wallpaper versions of the shots for your own enjoyment.

Feature Car: Tony Thomas’ 1928 Ford Pickup


17 Jan

January is a big month for Hosking Industries, with at least seven new automotive feature shoots published in national and international magazines. Tony Thomas’ awesome 1928 Ford Model A pickup is one of them, featured in issue 12 of Heavy Duty Hot Rods magazine in Australia. He and the car share an equally impressive story and you can read all about it by picking up a copy of the mag’, on-sale this month.

The pickup runs a 1967 327ci Chev’ with quad 48mm IDA Webers and blitzed the show scene when it debuted way back in 1989. We shot the car in Sydney’s North West, primarily using strobist gear and we’ve included all the lighting details for anyone interested. Just click HERE or on the thumbnails below for FREE desktop wallpapers and to check out larger versions of the images on our Flickr page where you’ll find captions for each shot.
