Feature Car: Smith Concepts’ Ford Model-A Hotrod


26 Feb

My photo shoot on Kyle Smith’s radical and retro Model-A Ford hotrod for issue nine of Forged magazine was actually the second time I’d photographed the car. The first time I laid eyes on the slammed, chopped and channelled Ford was several years ago when I shot the original iteration of it for another magazine. Once naturally aspirated and chunky metalflake orange, Kyle bought the car and truly made it his own. Issue nine of Forged is still available right now on newsstands nationwide.

Feature Bike: Paul Bailey’s 1937 Harley Davidson Land Speed Tribute


08 Jan

Paul Bailey has built a lot of bikes, but this one is particularly special as it pays tribute to the Harley Davidson Knucklehead that set a world land speed record in 1937 that stood for 11 years at 136.183mph on Daytona Beach.
This bike uses a 1939 frame with an S&S Knuckle engine powering it. Pretty, ain’t she!? It was featured in issue 155 of Heavy Duty.

Issue 20 of Heavy Duty Hot Rods (aka Genuine Hot Rods) is due to hit the stands real soon and contains four Hosking Industries photo shoots and feature stories. One of those was Scott Briggs‘ immaculate 1932 Ford coupe we brought you last week and another is Leon Julien’s awesome retro FC Holden wagon pictured here.

This mild kustom 1959 wagon was built at home under a 6x3m marquee in the front yard and is powered by a supercharged 208ci Holden six-cylinder stroker motor. Leon is responsible for just about everything and he and his family drive the car to shows up and down the East Coast of NSW, Australia.

Feature Car: Greg Pennell’s XL Ford Falcon


13 Aug

Issue 17 of Heavy Duty Hot Rods magazine (aka Wild Custom Hot Rods) is due out soon and contains our photo shoot and feature story on Greg Pennell’s awesome XL Ford Falcon kustom sedan, pictured here. If the name sounds familiar, it’s because we’ve also photographed his custom chopper – SEE IT HERE.

Built on the cheap for trouble-free cruising with the family, this XL features a tonne of excellent paint effects all performed by Greg, who now runs his own custom shop on the Central Coast of NSW. It’s powered by the original 250ci straight six and 3-speed auto, but just about everything else has been modified. Be sure to get the full story when the magazine goes on sale.

Oh, and if you’re wondering why Greg and his family are cozying up on a picnic blanket in a tunnel… we had a nice plan to shoot in a grassy park, but the dismally wet summer we had saw our shoot day compromised by torrential rain. Still looks cool though, right?

As always. we’ve got some great desktop wallpaper images of the car for you totally FREE and photogs can get the low down on our lighting setup and EXIF data on our Flickr page, too. Just CLICK HERE or on the thumbnails below.
