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!

Cover Car: Joe Tyler’s 1964 EH Holden Wagon


29 Oct

I was presented with a fresh challenge for this photo shoot on Joe Tyler’s – one that I’d been meaning to do more of for years: car-to-car tracking shots. The brief was to capture the balls-out, blown 416ci LS3-powered ’64 wagon on the street for the front cover of Street Machine. A ton of research on locations, technique and a borrowed lens with image stabilisation later and this is the result. The car appeared on the front of the October 2019 issue.

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.

Feature Car: Gary Taylor’s 1965 Ford XP Falcon


04 Oct

This is the second time I’ve had the pleasure of photographing this silver XP Ford Falcon. I previously shot the car for Street Fords magazine when old owner Andrew owned the car. Today, the car is owned by Gary Taylor and he’s spent plenty of time tidying it up and putting his own stamp on it. This photo shoot featured in the September issue of Street Machine.

Feature Car: V Resto Garage 1971 Ford XY Falcon


02 Oct

The latest monster Falcon to leave the V Resto Garage workshop is this 438ci, 8/71-blown beast that I photographed for the September issue of Street Machine. With 934hp on tap, it’s no slouch for a street car!

Cover Car: Mario Ciarrocchi’s VH Valiant Charger


18 Sep

I had the pleasure of visiting the Hills & Co workshop in Taree NSW, for the first time in a few years to photograph Mario Ciarrocchi’s incredible elite-level VH Valiant Charger for the front cover of Street Machine. Powered by a 540 big-block and boasting all the modern electrical wonders you could imagine (including a CANBUS system), this car is on another planet in terms of custom car building.

Feature Car: Jarrad Rogers’ Holden LH G-Pak Torana


27 Aug

My shoot on Jarrad Rogers’ blown Holden 308ci-powered LH G-Pak Torana appeared in the August 2019 issue of Street Machine. I got to shoot it in one of my favourite locations on the mid-north coast of NSW, too! There aren’t many places like this left standing.

Feature Car: Mark Sullivan’s 1963 Lincoln Continental


21 Aug

I’ve been lucky enough to photograph a number of Mark Sullivan’s automotive creations over the last six or seven years. I think this air-bagged Lincoln Continental makes it number three, plus a Performance Garage cover shoot.
The Lincoln, which boasts a 393ci Windsor V8 and custom orange trim, was featured in the August issue of Street Machine.

Feature Car: Peter Robson’s Holden VE Ute ‘UDLO5E’


13 Aug

Late-model Commodores haven’t come in for the same level of customisation as most older models… well, with exceptions. Like Peter Robson’s crazy VE Commodore ute for example.
With a big turbo on its 403ci stroker, suicide doors, custom trim, smooth engine bay and 24x12in billets under its tubbed arse… this is one very custom late-model Commodore and it was featured in the August 2019 issue of Street Machine.
