Feature Car: Peter Kotsopoulos’ 1971 Holden HQ Monaro


04 Jul

We recently had the pleasure of getting up close and personal with Peter Kotsopoulos’ 1971 Holden HQ Monaro (aka PRO71Q) when Hosking Industries photographed the car for a feature in issue 15 of Gasoline magazine, which is on sale now. While looking arguably sedate and ‘pro street’ from the outside, this HQ is absolutely dripping with detail and the undercarriage is just as detailed and smooth as the topside.

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: Ross’ HQ Holden One Tonner


13 Nov

We photographed Ross’ tough, nitrous-injected HQ Holden one-tonner utility on the Northern Beaches of Sydney back in 2011. It’s powered by a Holden V8 with a big direct-port nitrous setup that you just know gives this ute a big kick in the pants. It’s full of all the tough gear;  right down to the utilitarian Kirkey race seat that must be hell to endure when cruising on the street.

We’ve got six FREE desktop wallpaper images for you to download and as always, you’ll find our photos on Flickr complete with EXIF data and lighting information. CLICK HERE to view the entire gallery or on the thumbnails below:

Feature Car: Mick Molloy’s Holden HQ Tonner


24 May

Hey! We just realised we hit the 300 post mark with our last feature car update! Hooray for us.

Anyway, Custom Utes issue 45 is due to hit the stands soon and contains a tonne of Hosking Industries feature car photography, feature stories and coverage of the 2011 Taren Point Rat Day. One of the feature cars inside is Mick Molloy’s sweet 1973 Holden HQ ‘tonner’, pictured here.

Powered by a hard-revving 327ci small-block Chev’ V8, the bright orange ute has been a collaborative effort between Mick and some of his employees, with the end goal to drag race the Holden and destroy tyres at the annual Summernats festival in Canberra. You can read all about the caged machine in issue 45 of Custom Utes, on sale soon.

While this was an outdoor shoot in full sun-to-light cloud, we still made use of our Canon Speedlite flashes and strobist fans will find lighting information on our Flickr page, as well as the usual EXIF data. CLICK HERE to view and download six FREE desktop wallpaper images!
