Feature Car: Leon Julien’s 1959 FC Holden Wagon

24 Jan

Issue 20 of Heavy Duty Hot Rods (aka Genuine Hot Rods) is due to hit the stands real soon and contains four Hosking Industries photo shoots and feature stories. One of those was Scott Briggs‘ immaculate 1932 Ford coupe we brought you last week and another is Leon Julien’s awesome retro FC Holden wagon pictured here.

This mild kustom 1959 wagon was built at home under a 6x3m marquee in the front yard and is powered by a supercharged 208ci Holden six-cylinder stroker motor. Leon is responsible for just about everything and he and his family drive the car to shows up and down the East Coast of NSW, Australia. Be sure to read all about the car and how it came together in issue 20 of the magazine.

As always, we’ve got a series of FREE desktop wallpaper images for you to enjoy and strobist fans will find our lighting information and EXIF data on each image’s caption, too. Simply CLICK HERE or on the thumbnails below to visit our Flickr page where all the goodies lay in wait for your visit.

Feature Car: George Schembri’s 1959 FC Holden

15 Dec

We’re pleased to bring you six images of George Schembri’s remarkably restored 1959 Holden FC sedan, as featured in the 2011 Yearbook issue of Australian Classic Car magazine, on-sale NOW. This marks our first photo shoot and feature story for the magazine. Hopefully we’ll be able to bring you many more over the coming years.

George spent 12 months restoring the FC together with his son and a select group of workshops, largely using NOS parts and you can read all about their story in the magazine, including the kinds of prices you can expect when searching for NOS parts in the current scene. Don’t forget, as always, we offer all these images in desktop wallpaper sizing for your PC or Mac, totally FREE for personal use!
