Feature Car: Dave Hart’s 1953 Chevrolet Lead Sled Sedan


15 Oct

Along with Dave Hart’s awesome 1933 Ford tourer that we showed you last week, we also shot his 1953 Chev’ lead sled for the same issue of Heavy Duty Hot Rods magazine (aka Modified Street Hot Rods), which goes on sale any day now. Dave also built this machine himself in the shed at home, including the weekend roof chop and long, lapping flame job.

The Chevrolet is used as Dave’s wife’s daily, proving once and for all that car like this shouldn’t be kept in the shed. Backing it up is a 2009 350ci small-block and T350 and as you can see from the pics, this beast is visually loud. Clearly it’s the way Dave likes things to be.

As always, we’ve got a selection of desktop wallpaper-sized images for you to view and download for your own computer. For the photogs, you’ll find our EXIF data on each image as well. Just CLICK HERE or on the thumbnails below to jump.

Feature Car: Chris Hickman’s Willys Coupe


27 Mar

Issue 13 of Heavy Duty Hot Rods is on-sale now and contains four photo shoots by Hosking Industries, including a shoot on Chris Hickman’s incredible, regularly driven Willys coupe, pictured here. We first saw Chris’ coupe at the first annual Autumnfest, a new rod and custom culture show in Taree, NSW Australia. In fact, the second event is coming up shortly, on the weekend of April 28 and 29, 2012. Check it out HERE.

Back to Chris’ Willys: powered by a 6.71-blown 350ci SBC, the beast makes around 500rwhp and looks every bit as menacing with its slammed stance and huge 15x10in rear hoops. The car is full of cool details, like the frenched Caddy tail lights and plenty more you can read about in Heavy Duty Hot Rods. Be sure to pick up a copy at your local.

As always, we’ve got a bunch of FREE desktop wallpaper versions of the six images here and strobist fans can find lighting information on each image’s caption on our Flickr page. Just CLICK HERE or on the thumbnails below to jump.

Feature Car: Dave Kracht’s 1940 Ford De Luxe


31 Oct

Here’s a selection of six photos from our recent photo shoot on Dave Kracht’s incredible 1940 Ford De Luxe, also known as a Sloper. The car has been in Dave’s family for almost 50 years and you can read all about it’s journey in issue 11 of Heavy Duty Hot Rods magazine in Australia.

We shot the car on a smoky afternoon in Katoomba in the NSW Blue Mountains, where Dave runs a successful motor trimming shop. The car is unusual in that it was an Australian built model with a roof line unique to this country. It’s also powered by a Lexus V8.

While the detail shots use Speedlite flashes, the exterior shots were all done with natural and available light sources. Strobist info is available on related images. Check out the photos on our Flickr page by CLICKING HERE or on the thumbnails below.

Feature Car: Buddy Isaac’s 1932 Ford Roadster ‘BUD350’


12 Sep

A selection of four images from a recent photo shoot we did on Buddy Isaac’s blindingly bright orange 1932 Ford roadster for Heavy Duty Hotrods in Australia.

Buddy bought the Ford-powered rod in a complete state, however he went about refinishing it and restoring it to his own exacting standards. With a long history in the Australian modified car scene – particularly with in the small-car scene – we’re not surprised he couldn’t leave it alone!
