Our photo shoot and feature story on Craig Darcey’s immaculate, tyre-frying VK Commodore known as TIDYAS, appears in the latest issue of Street Commodores magazine (issue 238) which is on sale now. The stroker Holden V8-powered sedan started life as a burnout car, but today is – as the plates suggest – a super tidy all-round street car. Be sure to read all about the build in issue 238.

Feature Car: Nathan Booth’s Holden HR Ute


27 Jun

Our photo shoot on Nathan Booth’s immaculate RB-powered HR ute made the front cover of the latest issue of Zoom magazine, which is on sale now. The ACT-resident dropped a turbocharged RB25 into the engine bay of the old ute during its restoration, with the combo bringing the 1960s beast into the modern age. Be sure to read all about it in the magazine feature.

Cover Car: Stephen Barrie’s Holden LX Torana


04 Jun

Our photo shoot on Stephen Barrie’s incredible, award-winning LX Torana hatch back made it onto the front cover of the latest issue of Street Holdens (issue 3 – aka Xtreme Holdens), which is on sale right now! This car is flawless from top to bottom, with smoother bodywork than we’ve seen in a long time. Powered by a clinically clean, multi-throttle 355ci V8, it’s tough, too.

Feature Car: Mark Sullivan’s Ford Mustang Fastback


10 Jun

Our photo shoot on Mark Sullivan‘s awesome DIY Mustang Fastback ended up being two firsts for us: it was the first car we photographed using the light painting technique and it also ended up being our first international cover car! The June 2014 issue of Modified Mustangs & Fords hit the stands a short time ago in the USA with our rig shot of Mark’s Mustang taking pride and place on the front.

As an added bonus, the photo shoot also appears in the first issue of ‘Revhead Extreme Performance’ magazine, which is on Aussie newsstands now. So no one needs to miss out reading all about the car. Mark built the Mustang largely himself in his Tardis-like shed on the Central Coast of NSW, including the smart two-tone paint and extensive ‘blacked out’ anti-chrome look. Be sure to find a copy of MM&F or Revhead and read all about it.

Testing, testing: Camera Rig Test on Holden VZ Calais


18 Jun

We thought we’d do one more test shoot with our new Rig Pro car camera rig before offering it for commercial and paid private shoots. Not much to say here, other than giving a happy shout out to car owner Lawrence for donating his time and his sweet LSX-powered VZ Calais for the afternoon. Cheers!

Opinion Piece: No Regrets, Ever (Street Commodores Editorial Columns)


17 Jun

This is the fourth in a regular series of editorial pieces we’ll be posting here on the blog, originally written by Hosking Industries’ Ben Hosking for Street Commodores magazine and other magazines he’s completed opinion pieces for. This column appeared in issue 170 of Street Commodores:

No Regrets, Ever. (Written 16.03.2010)

Life’s a journey that doesn’t end until you die. So don’t waste time regretting the past.

When you’re young, it’s easy to get caught up stressing about the myriad mistakes that you make along the way to becoming an adult. You waste time worrying about stupid things like wearing the right clothes or having the right hair and generally fitting in to the right crowd. It’s all wasted energy that you could be expending on your journey forward.

There are a number of choice quotes that I could insert here, but my favourites are ‘you don’t stop learning until you stop breathing’, ‘don’t sweat the small stuff’ and ‘regret nothing’.

Just let those three sink in for a little bit…

Opinion Piece: New Beginnings (Street Commodores Editorial Columns)


13 Jun

This is the first in a regular series of editorial pieces we’ll be posting here on the blog, originally written by Hosking Industries’ Ben Hosking for Street Commodores magazine and other magazines he’s completed opinion pieces for. This column appeared in issue 169 of Street Commodores:

New Beginnings

As Street Commodores enters a new era with a new Editor, I’m in the enviable position of watching it all unfold, up close and personal.

The internal machinations of a magazine are something that seems to remain a perennial mystery to most folks on the outside, no matter how much we’ve chosen to divulge over the years. Street Commodores has always been one of the most accessible in terms of how much contact the editorial staff have with its readers and fans. Yet still, there’s only so much you want to give away and plenty that no one would probably ever care to know. Certainly, knowing too much can work to ruin the fantasy or aura that can surround the things you love.
