Feature Car: Andrew Drain’s Holden VH Commodore

18 Aug

Newcastle, NSW is a city busting with sweet modified cars and that’s where we found Andrew Drain’s incredible retrotech Holden VH Commodore, which is featured in issue 227 of Street Commodores magazine – on newsstands now.

Powered by a 418ci LS3 small-block, the VH also features an insane black leather interior by Eastside Kustoms, including a seamless, late-model VY dash conversion. Be sure to pick up the latest issue of Street Commodores to read all about it in our feature story.

As always, we’ve got a series of seven 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.

VALE: Laurie Starling of The Chop Shop

11 Aug

We’re still trying to come to terms with the sudden, tragic and senseless death of The Chop Shop co-founder Laurie Starling on July 24. He was yet to reach his 30th birthday.

There has been an outpouring of grief, support, tributes and love for the guy everyone agrees was one of a kind and Hosking Industries has been proud and glad to show our support at this time by providing one of our portraits to several friends and family of Laurie and the team at The Chop Shop for commemorative items and designs, some of which you can see below.

Vale: Laurie Starling.
