Feature Car: David Galea’s 1970 Holden Monaro


06 Nov

Thanks to COVID-19 and having our first baby, 2020 has been a pretty slow year for photo shoots. However, I did get commissioned to shoot David Galea’s gorgeous and ballsy 1970 Holden Monaro for the October 2020 issue of Street Machine.
Boasting a Motown 400ci SBC, Powerglide and narrowed 9in rear end, the car is old-school, but not stuck in the past. Smooth and slammed, but not stock.

Feature Car: Lee Payne’s 1971 Chevrolet Camaro


14 Jul

Not many people can lay claim to a first-time build of the quality that this 1971 Chevrolet Camaro exhibits. From front to back, top and the bottom, Lee Payne’s second-gen’ Chevrolet Camaro is all class (and plenty of grunt).
The car landed a coveted Summernats Top 60 spot as a reward for all his hard work – much of which was done in the shed at home with minimal tools and plenty of hard graft.
It runs a 540ci Dart-based big-block, backed by a T400 and a braced 9in. Dressed in a unique Miami Blue hue complete with ’70s-perfect vinyl roof, the coupe is damned-near perfect and appeared in the June 2020 issue of Street Machine.

Feature Car: Alex Fenech’s Holden LX Torana


09 Apr

I love it when I get to shoot cars that nail the ix between new-school and old-school. Alex Fenech’s Holden Torana does just that with a classy, classic black exterior with 15in Weld rims and a Weiand blower out the bonnet. But peer a little deeper and you’ll find the blower bolted to a 6L L98-based LS motor. Just magic!

Alex Fenech’s Holden Torana was featured in the February 2020 issue of Street Machine.

Cover Car: Pro Flo Performance LJ Torana


18 Mar

Custom classic Holdens don’t come much more ballistic than the latest weapon to come out of the Pro Flo Performance workshop. This Pro Flo Performance LJ Torana LJ Torana coupe is literally a balls-out N/A drag car built and finished like an elite-level show car – and it boasts the largest engine I’ve ever had the pleasure of pointing a camera at.
Coming in at a whopping 940ci, this Sonny’s race engine, Pro Flo is expecting the car to run into the low-7s on pump fuel and mid-6s with nitrous assistance.
The Pro Flo Performance LJ Torana was featured on the cover of the February 2020 issue of Street Machine.

Feature Car: Muss’ 1977 Holden LX SS Torana

Muss’ pristine 1977 Holden LX SS Torana hatch may just be the perfect mix of classic Aussie muscle and cutting edge horsepower. With the classic lines of the A9X hatch, complete with blackouts and flares, the two-door boasts a 600rwhp, Magnuson-blown L98 6L under the reverse-cowl hood – including fly-by-wire.
The Holden LX SS Torana was featured in the January issue of Street Machine.

Feature Car: Jovan Batar’s 1984 XE Ford Falcon


11 Feb

There’s now doubting that 1980s Ford Falcons are booming in popularity right now. I must have photographed four or five in the last couple of years that have all been stand-out quality and Jovan Batar’s 1984 XE Ford Falcon is no exception.
Boasting a 369ci Dart-based stroker, flawless Galaxy Grey metallic paint and a period-looking interior treatment, it’s all top notch stuff for Jovan Batar’s Ford Falcon. But it’s the attention to detail that really makes it shine.
The crazy thing is, that Jovan wasn’t even intending to build the Falcon to anywhere near the level that he has, because he’s already building an elite-level 1965 XP Falcon coupe!
The car was featured in the January issue of Street Machine.

Feature Car: Mark Cirillo’s 1974 Holden LJ Torana


31 Dec

Mark Cirillo’s 1974 Holden LJ Torana was living in his dreams for almost 20 years before he got the chance to actually own it. Now that it’s his, Mark has restored the LJ Torana coupe – transforming it into his perfect aussie muscle vision, including a tough 355ci Holden stroker and Ford 9in rear end.

Incredibly, Mark was able to preserve the car’s decades-old paintwork and the use of the Mawer three-piece 13in rims just adds to to the retro appeal. Step inside Mark Cirillo’s 1974 Holden LJ Torana and the vintage theme continues thanks to the largely GTR-spec’ upholstery.

The car was featured in the November issue of Street Machine magazine.

Feature Car: Shadi Tobaji’s Ford TC Cortina


26 Nov

There’s no doubting that a Ford TC Cortina is one of the more unusual choices for a street machine. But when you build one as clean and tough as Shadi Tobaji’s 443ci Dart Windsor-powered sedan, you can’t argue with the validity of his choice! Making a solid 889hp on C85 ethanol-based fuel, this 8sec machine can get the front wheels high into the air if Shadi forgets to fit the wheelie bars!

Shadi’s Ford Cortina was featured in the October 2019 issue of Street Machine.

Feature Car: Tomi Vatavuk’s 1974 Ford XB Falcon


20 Nov

If there’s a nicer XB Ford Falcon out there, I certainly haven’t photographed it! I got to photograph Tomi’s incredible ‘SOKOL’ Falcon sedan for the October issue of Street Machine. Perhaps the best thing about the XB – which includes a custom rear splitter/air dam, smoothed engine bay and plethora of custom billet and carbon fibre pieces – is that Tomi was able to do a lot of the build himself!

On top of being able to hang out with such a nice car, and a nice owner (who also happened to play guitar and like heavy music!), was being able to shoot the car in such a clean workshop. I personally have never seen such a clean work space. Especially given that besides handling custom work, it also serves as a regular servicing workshop. Look at that floor!

Feature Car: Jason Pellett’s Holden HT Kingswood


22 Oct

Jason Pellett built this pristine 1970 HT Holden Kingswood as a tribute to his late brother Michael. Powered by a 308ci Holden V8 within a clinically clean engine bay, the clean black and white theme is carried throughout the car, which is a great cruiser for Jason, his wife Ashley and twin boys. It was featured in the September 2019 issue of Street Machine.
