Feature Car: Winmalee Car Care VL Commodore


18 Dec

Our photoshoot on Winmalee Car Care‘s muscular LSx-powered VL Holden Commodore race car has just been published in the latest issue of Street Commodores magazine (issue 218), which is on sale now.

The Commodore started life as a very tidy VK wearing an SS HDT kit, but Willem Fercher from Winmalee Car Care had the front and rear ends of the car swapped to VL-spec’ recently, adding the HRT-style graphics and Walkinshaw body kit to finish off the look. Be sure to read all about the car in issue 218 of Street Commodores.

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 (although only the detail shots used off-camera flash).

Feature Car: David Chami’s LS1 LH Holden Torana


16 Aug

Issue 47 of Xtreme Holdens is due out soon and contains our photo shoot and feature story on David Chami’s cool self-built LH Holden Torana. Powered by a late-model LS1 alloy V8, this unassuming beast mixes classic Holden appeal with modern Holden power.

In a potentially perilous turn of events, Dave actually bought the car on the internet, sight unseen. Luckily for him, everything turned out OK and the car still wears that same coat of paint today. While the trim is original, everything under the car has been changed and you can read all about it in issue 47 of Xtreme Holdens.

As always, we’ve got a raft of FREE desktop wallpaper images for you to view and download on our Flickr page. Strobist fans and camera buffs will also find our lighting info and EXIF data there, however the exterior shots were primarily shot using natural available light.
