Behind the Scenes: Inside Australia’s Coolest Garages


01 May

Performance Garage Photo Shoots

Performance Garage magazine launched in early 2012 through Express Publications and Hosking Industries was there. In the ensuing 18 months or so we’ve shot a number of incredible sheds, garages and workshops for the magazine, capturing the places and the people who use them. We thought it was high time we uploaded some select samples for all of you playing at home.

All the images are of cars and places within NSW Australia, primarily Newcastle and Sydney. Workshops like Ziggy’s Hot Rods and Lowe Fabrications are joined by private man caves and garages owned by guys including the talented Dave Hart, John Stevens, Murray Forman and Brian Apap. Be sure to check this image set again in the future when we add more samples from published shoots.

Feature Car: Dave Hart’s 1953 Chevrolet Lead Sled Sedan


15 Oct

Along with Dave Hart’s awesome 1933 Ford tourer that we showed you last week, we also shot his 1953 Chev’ lead sled for the same issue of Heavy Duty Hot Rods magazine (aka Modified Street Hot Rods), which goes on sale any day now. Dave also built this machine himself in the shed at home, including the weekend roof chop and long, lapping flame job.

The Chevrolet is used as Dave’s wife’s daily, proving once and for all that car like this shouldn’t be kept in the shed. Backing it up is a 2009 350ci small-block and T350 and as you can see from the pics, this beast is visually loud. Clearly it’s the way Dave likes things to be.

As always, we’ve got a selection of desktop wallpaper-sized images for you to view and download for your own computer. For the photogs, you’ll find our EXIF data on each image as well. Just CLICK HERE or on the thumbnails below to jump.
