Feature Car: Mark Cirillo’s 1974 Holden LJ Torana


31 Dec

Mark Cirillo’s 1974 Holden LJ Torana was living in his dreams for almost 20 years before he got the chance to actually own it. Now that it’s his, Mark has restored the LJ Torana coupe – transforming it into his perfect aussie muscle vision, including a tough 355ci Holden stroker and Ford 9in rear end.

Incredibly, Mark was able to preserve the car’s decades-old paintwork and the use of the Mawer three-piece 13in rims just adds to to the retro appeal. Step inside Mark Cirillo’s 1974 Holden LJ Torana and the vintage theme continues thanks to the largely GTR-spec’ upholstery.

The car was featured in the November issue of Street Machine magazine.

Cover Car: Owen Rice’s Holden CV8 Monaro


05 Feb

I photographed Owen Rice’s beautiful Holden CV8 Monaro burnout car for the front cover of the return issue of Street Machine Commodores. This is so much more than a simple skid car. It’s also a fully fledged show car, complete with custom interior, detailed undercarriage and smooth engine bay. There is detail everywhere! Oh, and it makes almost 1200hp from its 400ci, 8/71-blown stroker.

Feature Car: John Trunzo’s FJ Holden Coupe


14 Jun

We recently had the pleasure of photographing this iconic Australian kustom for Cruzin magazine. Rebuilt over four years by John Trunzo, the FJ Holden was originally built by Lance Simmers in the 1960 and won scores of trophies both in car shows and on the drag strip. Today, the car is far beyond what Simmers had done with the car, with flawless burnt orange candy paint covering top and bottom, however the essence of the original car remains.
