Feature Car: Chris Rossi’s 355ci Holden LC Torana Coupe


24 Jul

Chris Rossi’s metallic purple 355ci stroker Holden-powered LC Torana coupe, looks mean standing still. Chris did a lot of the bodywork work himself. It’s backed by a T350 and a 9in for good measure. It appeared in the July issue of Street Machine.

Feature Car: Dave & Sarah Cowie’s HJ GTS Monaro


24 Jul

David and Sarah Cowie’s pristine LS-swapped Holden HJ GTS Monaro was given a small feature in the June issue of Street Machine magazine. With a clean LS1 Conversion, flawless interior and a tough stance, it’s a largely home-built affair and the paint is to die for – a job David also handled himself.

Feature Car: Adam Cleary’s 427ci 1957 Buick Special


11 Jul

Some cars take a while to be truly ready for a photo shoot. For Adam Cleary’s incredible, air-bagged and big-block powered 1957 Buick Special, that period was a little over two years from the first time I called him to the morning we did the photo shoot. When you do a build this extensive, sometimes there are just some niggling issues that take time to resolve. I like to think the wait was worth it. It was featured in the June 2018 issue of Street Machine.

Feature Car: Nathan Patterson’s 1978 Toyota KE30 Corolla


16 May

My stock in trade seems to be of the Holden and Ford varieties. But sometimes I get to shoot far more unusual and interesting beasts. Nathan’s L98-powered 1978 KE30 Corolla is one of those. Bought from an old lady called Thelma, the little sedan now makes some 550rwhp and rips hellacious skids at the drop of a hat. It was featured in the May issue of Street Machine.

Feature Car: John Kerr’s 1964 Mercury Comet / Ford Ranchero


07 May

This isn’t the first time John Kerr’s 1964 Mercury Comet creations have graced the pages of this website. You may remember his Caliente coupe and matching supercharged truck PICTURED HERE and featured in Man and Machine magazine. Street Machine recently published my photo shoot on his latest build, which is a phantom of sorts – a mach up of a 1964 Ford Ranchero and a ’64 Mercury Comet. Better still, pop the hood and you’ll find a stealth twin-turbo setup bolted to the 331ci stroker Windsor that John screwed together himself.

Feature Car: Adam Wheeler’s Holden VL Calais


01 May

In a world where the norm’ is to ditch whatever is already in the engine bay in favour of an LS-based power plant, Adam Wheeler’s twin-throttle, Holden V8-powered VL Holden Calais is a breath of old-school air. Beautifully finished from tip to tail, the 340rwhp sedan was featured in the April issue of Street Machine.

Feature Car: Lewis Younis’ Turbo LS-Powered Holden VK Commodore


11 Apr

Lewis Younis’ HDT-styled VK Holden Commodore might look pretty much like most others you see getting around car shows these days, the combination of its stance and the 500rwhp turbocharged LS conversion under the bonnet helps set it apart from the pack. Street Machine thought so too, featuring it in its March 2018 issue.

Feature Car: Michael Ceyhan’s Ford XD Fairmont


26 Mar

Michael Ceyhan’s immaculate Ford XD Fairmont appeared in the March issue of Street Machine. It runs a 434ci Dart Eagle-based stroker that’s run a 10.9sec ET, but Michael says he didn’t build the car to race. Front to back, top to bottom – including the detailed undercarriage – it’s a fitting testament to as beloved dad.
