Feature Car: Davin Cochrane’s LS1-Powered LH Holden Torana


06 Feb

Two red Toranas in one issue? Yep, Xtreme Holdens issue 51 contains two red LH/LX Toranas, but they are different animals. Les Chadwick’s 355ci-powered hatch is a total classic Australian street machine, whereas Davin Cochrane’s four-door, pictured here, has gone an altogether different route.

Powered by an LS1 alloy V8 and T56 and wearing a set of Simmons FR rims, Davin’s LH is the epitome of retrotech flavour. You can read all about the radical modern transformation that took place in issue 51, over a generous nine page feature.

Feature Car: Les Chadwick’s 1976 LX Holden Torana


14 Jan

We’ve got two gorgeous red Torana’s in issue 51 of Xtreme Holdens magazine and this 1976 LX hatch belongs to Les Chadwick. Powered by a 355ci stroker Holden V8 or VT Commodore vintage, the car is flawless and screams ‘classic Torana’. We shot it early one morning in western Sydney.

As always, we’ve got a series of FREE desktop wallpaper images for you to enjoy and strobist fans will find our lighting information on each image’s caption, too. However the main exterior shots are, for the most part, shot purely with natural available light – the details and portrait are strobist, though.

16 Aug

Here’s a selection of seven shots Hosking Industries took of Rob Owen’s nitrous-fed LH Holden Torana drag car for the latest issue of Holden Muscle magazine in Australia (issue 3). At the time we wrote the story on the car it had already run a 9.6sec ET with 600hp with more to come.

Rob is the third owner of the Torana, but only the first to actually get it finished and race it. Read the full fascinating story in the magazine.

As you can see from the images, Chris’ LJ runs a nice Holden six cylinder engine with triples and sounds angry thanks to an aggressive cam profile. The entire car has been rebuilt from the ground up and you can read all about it in Xtreme Holdens.
