Charlie Saliba's 1971 Chrysler Valiant VH Charger R/T E38

My photo shoot on Charlie Saliba’s 1971 Chrysler Valiant VH Charger R/T E38 was featured in the September 2018 issue of Street Machine. The 265ci Hemi six-powered coupe took a long time to get to this point, but the results of Charlie’s hard labour is evident no matter where you look and you can read all about it in the Sept. 2018 issue.

Cover Car: Bill Skyrm’s 1969 Valiant VF Pacer


20 Feb

I had the pleasure of photographing Bill Skyrm’s immaculate 1969 Valiant VF Pacer sedan late in 2017 for the cover of a local magazine. It still runs the iconic slant six, backed by a Borg Warner 3-speed manual and makes about 150hp.

Feature Car: Kosta Contis’s Valiant CL Ute


09 Nov

As if Kosta Contis’s choice of paint colour didn’t make this Valiant ute stand out enough already – he had to go and squeeze a 513ci Gen III Viper V10 into the front end of it! Thanks to a full exhaust, though, the car sounds like a real pussycat on the street. I shot the CL ute for Street Machine‘s October issue.

Feature Car: RAT065 Valiant Ute for Aussie Brutes Magazine


11 Feb

Be sure to check issue 29 of Aussie Brutes magazine for our photoshoot and feature story on Kyle Smith’s white Valiant ute, RAT065. A cool retro V8-powered machine, Kyle’s ute was shot in the workshop of Evolution Motorsports in Brookvale NSW, Australia.

We lit the ute with three Canon Speedlite flashes and merged the background in separately, having lit it separately with the same flashes.

If you’d like to buy a print of this vehicle, send us an email! Additionally, if you’d like to give your pride and joy a professional photoshoot like this, Hosking Industries offer package deals in the greater Sydney and Newcastle areas at reasonable rates.

Image Gallery: 127 Images from MotorEx 2010 in Sydney


26 Jul

MotorEx 2010 in SydneyMotorEx has long been one of the biggest and most impressive indoor car shows in Australia. Sadly though, the shine had worn off the event in recent years due in part to the influence of both the former owner and the hotrod club that controlled much of what went on and how the event was laid out. Thankfully that all changed last year when MotorActive bought the show – lock, stock and barrel.

MotorActive is owned by Bruce Morrison and distributes a number of high profile product lines in Australia; including Meguiar’s, House of Kolor automotive finishes and Liqui-Moly. For years, Meguiar’s had been naming-rights sponsors of the MotorEx. So it made sense that MotorActive should take it on. With Owen Webb – one of the country’s top elite show car judges – taking the reins of the show, it returned this year with a renewed vigour and vitality that it’d been long lacking.

Walking into the expansive dome, the quality of the vehicles – as well as the quantity – was immediately apparent. For a few years past, most of the main action took place only in the front of the venue, with the rear halls consisting pretty boring car club displays of restored and classic cars. While there was always a smattering of modified cars ‘out back’, the quality drop was like falling off a cliff as you walked out of the main dome area. Not so in 2010!

This year, the quality from the front to the back of the full-sized venue was excellent with all makes and models well represented. Whether you were into the rods, muscle cars, late-model muscle, bikes and choppers or high-tech Jap’ stuff – MotorEx had you covered with some of the best examples in the country on display.

Owen Webb did an amazing job of pulling all the cars to the event and being the show’s big anniversary, organised for all past winners of the show to come back and compete against one another again. It was truly a spectacle to behold and the punters lapped it up.
