Feature Car: Ryan Pearson’s Holden HT Premier


18 Aug

Ryan Pearson’s Holden Premier – aka HOLDON – is a legend on the Aussie burnout scene. Formerly dressed in a sinister black suit, Ryan recently did a ground-up rebuild on the car after torching the rear half of the car in competition.
Now wearing a luminous DNA Emerald Green metallic, the Premier looks part show car, part skid monster with the large rear tubs housing a set of 20x12in billets (not used in competition, as you could imagine) and that big blower hat sticking through the bonnet.
The blower hat connects to a 1360hp dry-sumped, 377ci small-block and 8/71 supercharger. It sounds mental sitting at 9000rpm while cutting hoops, but Ryan says he’s even pushed the engine to 10,300rpm previously without issue!
My photo shoot on Ryan Pearson’s Holden Premier was featured in the August 2021 issue of Street Machine.

Feature Car: Nick Knight’s 1972 Holden HQ Kingswood


29 Jun

I took a nice scenic drive down south past Sydney a few months back to grab some images of Nick Knight’s ass-dragging 1972 Holden HQ Kingswood for Street Machine magazine.
It had taken the best part of a year to actually get the shoot done thanks in part to COVID and also just life in general. But I’m glad we waited, because by the time I got down there, Nick Knight’s 1972 Holden HQ Kingswood had ditched the small-block in favour of a 598ci Dart-based big-block thumper!
Its old-school aesthetic suits the car perfectly, with simple black interior, reverse-cowl scoop and gorgeous Chlorophyll Blue Green metallic paint.
The shoot appeared in the June 2021 issue of Street Machine.

Feature Car: Chad Ribbons’ 1965 Holden HD Ute


24 Jun

Chad Ribbons’ 1965 Holden HD Ute was built as a tribute to his late father. Boasting a custom ‘toilet wall’ green finish and sitting on its belly thanks to a Slam Specialties airbag system, Chad Ribbons’ 1965 Holden HD Ute is packed with ‘cool’ and garners plenty of attention wherever it goes.
The ute runs a built 202ci Holden six with a set of triple SU carbs, backed by a Trimatic and Volvo diff’ housing with 3.7:1 gears. Rolling low on the raked 17- and 19in billet rims, it looks fantastic.
My photo shoot on the car was featured in the June 2021 issue of Street Machine magazine.

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: 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.

Feature Car: Alex Fenech’s Holden LX Torana


09 Apr

I love it when I get to shoot cars that nail the ix between new-school and old-school. Alex Fenech’s Holden Torana does just that with a classy, classic black exterior with 15in Weld rims and a Weiand blower out the bonnet. But peer a little deeper and you’ll find the blower bolted to a 6L L98-based LS motor. Just magic!

Alex Fenech’s Holden Torana was featured in the February 2020 issue of Street Machine.

Feature Car: Tony Rohr’s Holden VH Commodore


03 Apr

My photo shoot of Tony Rohr’s twin-turbo Holden VH Commodore drag car was featured in the February 2020 issue of Street Machine magazine. 77-year-old Tony built the 427ci LS-powered monster in his shed at home from a rusty hulk.

Dressed in Tony’s favourite Sting Red paint, the car boasts a big-cube LS that utilises an RHS block, supported by a pair of Garrett GTX3582R turbos and a T400 auto. There’s a Ford 9in rear out back and a cage weaves right through the car from front to back.

When was the last time you heard about a 77-year-old building – and driving – an eight-second race car!? Tony Rohr’s Holden VH Commodore is one slick beast!
