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.

Feature Car: Chris Milburn’s LJ Holden Torana Sedan


25 Jul

A selection of six images from a photo shoot and feature story Hosking Industries did on Chris Milburn’s sweet LJ Holden Torana sedan for Xtreme Holdens magazine in Australia. The feature appears in the latest issue of the magazine, number 38, on sale now.

As you can see from the images, Chris’ LJ runs a nice Holden six cylinder engine with triples and sounds angry thanks to an aggressive cam profile. The entire car has been rebuilt from the ground up and you can read all about it in Xtreme Holdens.

Feature Car: Ray Tyler’s LJ Torana Coupe


16 Jul

A selection of five images from a photo shoot we did on Ray Tyler’s 1972 Holden LJ Torana coupe that has been built as a circuit racer. It appeared in issue 5 of Holden Horsepower magazine in July 2011.

Powered by a hot six-cylinder Holden engine, the car boasts a full roll cage, race seats and plenty of camber. The car had not been raced or dyno tested at the time of publication, but the AVGAS-fed beast was due to hit the track soon. I remember it being quite an angry, cammy and temperamental machine on the day of the shoot.

All shots were lit with Canon Speedlite flashes and there is strobist information on the individual shots for anyone interested.
