Feature Car: Tomi Vatavuk’s 1974 Ford XB Falcon


20 Nov

If there’s a nicer XB Ford Falcon out there, I certainly haven’t photographed it! I got to photograph Tomi’s incredible ‘SOKOL’ Falcon sedan for the October issue of Street Machine. Perhaps the best thing about the XB – which includes a custom rear splitter/air dam, smoothed engine bay and plethora of custom billet and carbon fibre pieces – is that Tomi was able to do a lot of the build himself!

On top of being able to hang out with such a nice car, and a nice owner (who also happened to play guitar and like heavy music!), was being able to shoot the car in such a clean workshop. I personally have never seen such a clean work space. Especially given that besides handling custom work, it also serves as a regular servicing workshop. Look at that floor!

Cover Car: Fabion Corio’s 1962 VW Karmann Ghia


24 Oct

My photo shoot on Fabion Corio’s pristine 1962 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia was featured on the front cover of the latest issue of VW Magazine Australia, which is still on sale now. Powered by a 1776cc engine with twin Kadron carbs and custom manifolds, the car sits nice and low and looked beautiful as the sun went down during our shoot on Sydney’s south-eastern shores.

Feature Car: Jason Pellett’s Holden HT Kingswood


22 Oct

Jason Pellett built this pristine 1970 HT Holden Kingswood as a tribute to his late brother Michael. Powered by a 308ci Holden V8 within a clinically clean engine bay, the clean black and white theme is carried throughout the car, which is a great cruiser for Jason, his wife Ashley and twin boys. It was featured in the September 2019 issue of Street Machine.

Feature Car: Gary Taylor’s 1965 Ford XP Falcon


04 Oct

This is the second time I’ve had the pleasure of photographing this silver XP Ford Falcon. I previously shot the car for Street Fords magazine when old owner Andrew owned the car. Today, the car is owned by Gary Taylor and he’s spent plenty of time tidying it up and putting his own stamp on it. This photo shoot featured in the September issue of Street Machine.

Cover Car: Mario Ciarrocchi’s VH Valiant Charger


18 Sep

I had the pleasure of visiting the Hills & Co workshop in Taree NSW, for the first time in a few years to photograph Mario Ciarrocchi’s incredible elite-level VH Valiant Charger for the front cover of Street Machine. Powered by a 540 big-block and boasting all the modern electrical wonders you could imagine (including a CANBUS system), this car is on another planet in terms of custom car building.

Feature Car: Mark Sullivan’s 1963 Lincoln Continental


21 Aug

I’ve been lucky enough to photograph a number of Mark Sullivan’s automotive creations over the last six or seven years. I think this air-bagged Lincoln Continental makes it number three, plus a Performance Garage cover shoot.
The Lincoln, which boasts a 393ci Windsor V8 and custom orange trim, was featured in the August issue of Street Machine.

Feature Car: Peter Robson’s Holden VE Ute ‘UDLO5E’


13 Aug

Late-model Commodores haven’t come in for the same level of customisation as most older models… well, with exceptions. Like Peter Robson’s crazy VE Commodore ute for example.
With a big turbo on its 403ci stroker, suicide doors, custom trim, smooth engine bay and 24x12in billets under its tubbed arse… this is one very custom late-model Commodore and it was featured in the August 2019 issue of Street Machine.

Feature Car: Angus’ 604ci Ford Falcon GT


25 Jul

My photo shoot and feature story on this brutal, yet refined 604ci Ford Falcon GT clone appeared in the July 2019 issue of Street Machine magazine. The bodywork and brilliant electric blue metallic paint had to be seen in person to really understand how flawless it was. A gorgeous car, for sure!

Jamie Galea’s pristine XW Ford Falcon was featured in the June 2019 issue of Street Machine magazine, which was on sale last month. Known as MADXW, the PPG custom purple sedan runs a tough 393ci Clevo and amazingly, was Jamie’s first full-on build. It got unveiled at Summernats.

Feature Car: Zoran Krstevski’s Ford XE Falcon


15 May

Zoran Krstevski’s Ford XE Falcon appeared in the May 2019 issue of Street Machine magazine. This thing was truly flawless. The bodywork alone was so straight I couldn’t quite believe it. Powered by an ex-NASCAR 393ci Clevo, the smooth and subtle XE has the brawn to match the beauty.
