Feature Car: Steve Sterjovski’s Holden VL Calais

18 Feb

Steve Sterjovski’s Holden VL Calais wears license plates that pretty much sum up the entire build. From the insane butt-dragging stance and the nutso 22x13in Simmons FR rims to the monster 3.2L RB26-based turbo six that makes some 1000rwhp thanks in part to the massive 94mm Pro Mod turbo – this VL means ‘war’.
Things don’t settle down once you open the door and get in, either. Step inside and you’ll find a cabin drenched in bone leather, complete with cage, custom fibreglass dash and so much more.
The photo shoot was featured in the 2020 Street Machine Yearbook.

Cover Car: Michael Moit’s Ford TD Cortina

05 Feb

I recently got to photograph a bit of a legend on the Sydney car scene from over the last 30 years. Michael Moit’s Ford TD Cortina used to terrorise drag strips like Oran Park where the car would wheelstand thanks to its hi-po Clevo and Windsor V8s – the latter of which took the car to a best of 8.4sec @ 155mph.
It recently scored a new lease on life with a makeover and a twin-turbo conversion for the original Clevo-headed Windsor. Making 850hp, this combo is incredibly considered the test mule before building a more serious bottom end down the track.
The shoot was featured on the cover of the 2020 Street Machine Yearbook.

Feature Car: Mendo’s Holden LX Torana

In storage out west for some 20 years, Mendo’s barn-find Holden LX Torana mixes modern mumbo with classic styling for the perfect street car recipe.
Powered by a 454ci LSX-based V8 and backed by a T400 and 9in, the Contessa Gold sedan sits nice and low thanks to a set of mini tubs.
The car was featured in the Street Machine 2020 Yearbook.

My photo shoot on the Image Conversions’ Ford Falcon appeared on the cover of the December 2020 issue of Street Machine magazine!
Powered by a 1000hp Barra turbocharged straight six, the ’64 vintage sedan is full of high-tech mechanicals and interior components – right down to the one-off custom 3D-printed LED tail light assemblies.

Feature Car: Sammy’s 1956 Volkswagen Single-Cab Kombi

08 Dec

Believe it or not, this way-cool rusted and bent ’56 Volkswagen Single-Cab Kombi belongs to an 11-year-old boy! Sam and his dad pulled the raw carcass of this machine from a field out in the country and proceeded to bring it back to life, including a lot of rust repairs, a fresh 1641cc engine and that unique interior made up of patina’d signage.
My shoot was featured in issue 67 of VW Magazine Australia.

Feature Car: David Galea’s 1970 Holden Monaro

06 Nov

Thanks to COVID-19 and having our first baby, 2020 has been a pretty slow year for photo shoots. However, I did get commissioned to shoot David Galea’s gorgeous and ballsy 1970 Holden Monaro for the October 2020 issue of Street Machine.
Boasting a Motown 400ci SBC, Powerglide and narrowed 9in rear end, the car is old-school, but not stuck in the past. Smooth and slammed, but not stock.

Feature Car: Lee Payne’s 1971 Chevrolet Camaro

14 Jul

Not many people can lay claim to a first-time build of the quality that this 1971 Chevrolet Camaro exhibits. From front to back, top and the bottom, Lee Payne’s second-gen’ Chevrolet Camaro is all class (and plenty of grunt).
The car landed a coveted Summernats Top 60 spot as a reward for all his hard work – much of which was done in the shed at home with minimal tools and plenty of hard graft.
It runs a 540ci Dart-based big-block, backed by a T400 and a braced 9in. Dressed in a unique Miami Blue hue complete with ’70s-perfect vinyl roof, the coupe is damned-near perfect and appeared in the June 2020 issue of Street Machine.

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.
