Feature Car: John Huysman’s XY Ford Falcon Ute for Street Machine

17 Oct

John Huysman’s killer 1200hp, twin turbo 429ci XY Ford Falcon ute was featured in the September issue of Street Machine. I was lucky enough to shoot it in John’s nice, warm garage on a cold rainy day in Orange, NSW. The ute featured an N/A intake pipe and filter on the day of the shoot, but that was only because he was in the middle of fabricating some new, larger intake piping for those big Turbonetics turbos.


As always, we’ve got a series of FREE desktop wallpaper images for you to enjoy. Simply CLICK HERE or on the thumbnails below to visit our Flickr page where all the goodies lay in wait for your visit.

Feature Car: Ross’ HQ Holden One Tonner

13 Nov

We photographed Ross’ tough, nitrous-injected HQ Holden one-tonner utility on the Northern Beaches of Sydney back in 2011. It’s powered by a Holden V8 with a big direct-port nitrous setup that you just know gives this ute a big kick in the pants. It’s full of all the tough gear;  right down to the utilitarian Kirkey race seat that must be hell to endure when cruising on the street.

We’ve got six FREE desktop wallpaper images for you to download and as always, you’ll find our photos on Flickr complete with EXIF data and lighting information. CLICK HERE to view the entire gallery or on the thumbnails below:

Feature Car: Wayne Anthony’s Ford BA Falcon Utility

17 Oct

Featured in the same issue of Custom Utes magazine as our very first cover car, Ditch Jones’ yellow HR Holden, you’ll also find a feature shoot and story by Hosking Industries on Wayne Anthony’s wicked blue Ford BA Falcon ute, known as BAD 8. Powered by a 5.4L BOSS injected V8 and carrying a mother lode of audio and visual gear, Wayne’s ute was always destined for a a spot in a magazine.

We shot the Ford in the parking lot of Wayne’s local Autobarn store where he’s handed more than his fair share of cash and a big thank you goes out to those guys for blocking off access to their car park for a few hours. You can read all about the ute and Wayne’s love of Fords in issue 42 of Custom Utes.
