Feature Car: Tony Moit’s 1976 Datsun 260Z


07 May

While the name of Moits has historically been synonymous with high profile drag racing, the family name also has a rich history when it comes to performance street cars. I photographed Michael Moit’s killer twin-turbo Ford Cortina for the front cover of Street Machine late in 2020 (see it HERE) and recently I travelled back to the Moits Racing workshop to photograph Tony Moit’s 1976 Datsun 260Z.
Both cars have a long history in the family and the scene. This 260z even spent some time acting as the pizza delivery car in the TV show Fat Pizza.
Having recently undergone an extensive restoration and update, the 260z now slays with fresh Sting Red paint, a fresh EFI-controlled 347ci Windsor V8, fresh OE-style interior retrim and those gorgeous Watanabe eight-spoke 17in rims.
The shoot on Tony Moit’s 1976 Datsun 260Z was featured in the April 2021 issue of Street Machine.

Feature Car: Todd Bulkeley’s Datsun 1600 SS Coupe


04 Dec

Another of the vehicles I got to photograph on my trip into NSW’s central west earlier this year was Todd Bulkeley’s amazing Datsun 1600 SSS coupe, as featured in Street Machine. Todd was injured in an accident in the late ’90s that left him in a wheelchair and keen eyes will see the hand controls in the cockpit. The FJ20-powered coupe was good enough to find itself in the Elite hall at Summernats!

Feature Car: Aaron Fitzpatrick’s Datsun 1600 (Shoot 2)


01 Nov

Not only did I get lucky enough to photograph Aaron Fitzpatrick’s Datsun 1600 once, but I was asked to shoot it twice for two different magazines on the same trip down to Canberra earlier this year! I’ve already posted some images from my photo shoot for Street Machine magazine HERE. Now you can see some of the images from my shoot for Perth’s Forged magazine. It’s been on sale for a while now, but you can still find it on newsstands nationwide.

This beast runs a dry-sumped, 800hp FJ20 combo, with tubs and a cage – it’s a full-house race version of his Summernats-winning 1600, with a personality all its own.
