Feature Car: Ben Hiles’ 622rwhp Holden VE Calais V


21 Nov

Most of my photo shoots take place away from home. Typically in areas like Sydney or further afield. So it was nice, not only to shoot a vehicle within an hour from my house, but also to get a close look at Ben Hiles’ sleeper VE Calais V. I shot it for the latest issue of Street Machine’s LSX Tuner magazine. With a rebuilt, forged 6L LS under the bonnet, fettled further thanks to a Magnusson MP2300 blower, this grandpa-coloured VE makes 622rwhp! I bet this thing surprises some folks at the traffic lights.

It’s not often you come across a sleeper as potent at Martin Mohan’s 1315rwhp turbocharged, 427ci Holden Berlina wagon! I shot it inside the Russo Performance workshop for issue 5 of Street Machine‘s LSX Tuner special edition.

Feature Car: GLenn Watson’s Sleeper HG Holden Belmont


13 Sep

We were lucky enough to photograph Glenn Watson’s clever and controversial Ford Barra-powered HG Holden Belmont for Street Machine on our Queensland trip a few months back. This thing has been built cheap and runs 10s with its turbocharged, fuel-injected six-cylinder. Yet, it retains its original hubcaps and even boasts a dummy muffler and peashooter tailpipe out back that hides the fuel pumps behind it! It was featued in the September issue of the magazine, which was on sale last month.
