Feature Car: Daniel Shannon’s Holden VL Commodore


19 May

Daniel Shannon’s Holden VL Commodore was actually his first car. Purchased at the age of 16, he grew up in a Holden family and messed around with the car throughout his young years. Around a decade ago, Daniel decided to build the car right and this is what results from his hard work: a Walkinshaw-clad, RB26/30 turbo hybrid built by Maatouks that’s capable of some 1000hp and so much more.

My photo shoot on Daniel Shannon’s Holden VL Commodore appeared in the April 2020 issue of Street Machine.

Feature Car: Brendyn Wardell’s Holden VL Commodore


16 Apr

Brendyn Wardell has had a long history in the Aussie car scene, starting with his well-known and loved black VK Commodore known as STR8AZ back in the early ’00s. In fact, this feature on his latest blown LS-powered VL, 2NGRY2, marks his fourth Street Machine feature (appearing in the March 2020 issue). He also had cars appear in Street Commodores and others.
Brendyn’s latest car started as an original N/A Calais and today plays host to a 421ci LQ9-based LS stroker with an injected 8/71 supercharger on top. Built almost entirely in the shed with mate Billy Shine, the VL features die-straight panel work and sumptuous blood-red leather trim.

Huss Ghamrawi’s incredible, home-built mish-mash of a Holden VL Commodore and R33 Nissan Skyline is probably the coolest car I’ve photographed in recent memory. It was featured in the June 2017 issue of Street Machine magazine.

Feature Car: Winmalee Car Care VL Commodore


18 Dec

Our photoshoot on Winmalee Car Care‘s muscular LSx-powered VL Holden Commodore race car has just been published in the latest issue of Street Commodores magazine (issue 218), which is on sale now.

The Commodore started life as a very tidy VK wearing an SS HDT kit, but Willem Fercher from Winmalee Car Care had the front and rear ends of the car swapped to VL-spec’ recently, adding the HRT-style graphics and Walkinshaw body kit to finish off the look. Be sure to read all about the car in issue 218 of Street Commodores.
