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: Lexus Aplin’s 2013 Volkswagen Beetle


17 Dec

I’ve had the pleasure of photographing a number of Volkswagen Beetles over the years, but never one of the new generation. So I was pretty excited when I saw Lexus Aplin’s 2013 Volkswagen Beetle sitting with its belly on the ground at the 2019 VW Nationals. A call to Craig at VWMA secured the car a feature story and we got to work arranging a photo shoot.
With an extensive Maxton body kit, Airlift 3P Performance Suspension kit and TSW Sebring wheels, Lexus Aplin’s 2013 Volkswagen Beetle is completely transformed from the tired stocker it was when Lexus found the car. Inside, a Sirocco R interior makes things far more sporty and the whole car gets more oopmh thanks to a Stage 1 APR tune and intake upgrade that nets the car around 30kW extra power. Further improvements come from a custom 2.5in cat-back exhaust.
My photos were features in issue 64 of VW Magazine Australia.

Feature Car: Nick Blunck’s 1961 Volkswagen Beetle


12 Dec

Nick Blunck is a dedicated VW fan. He owns at least two Beetles and can be regularly seen posting images of sexy Euro sports cars via his social media channels.
He lusted after a period-specific rally-style Beetle using parts and mods you might have seen in the 1950s, using parts from companies around at the time like Oettinger. This tasty example is the result of his toil and it is featured in issue 60 of VW Magazine Australia.

Cover Cars: Andy Roberts’ Trio of Volkswagen Samba Buses

Andy Roberts' Trio of Volkswagen Samba Buses

Andy Roberts’ Trio of Volkswagen Samba buses were featured on the front cover of issue 59 of VW Magazine Australia (VWMA). The trio consists a 1957 23-window, 1960 23-window and 1963 21-window model and surely makes it one of the more impressive private collections in the country. The fact that they’ve been immaculately restored and catalogued just adds to the appeal. The feature also marks my fifth front cover of VWMA 🙂
