Feature Car: Kevan McConochie's Manx Buggy

Kevan McConochie’s 2.27L stroker VW-powered Manx buggy is unlike any other you’re likely to see. Slammed, widened, caged and ballsy, the Audi grey tub isn’t about to see any beach time. This is a street buggy.
I photographed it for issue 60 of VW Magazine Australia.

Feature Car: Azgar Khan's Volkswagen Mki Golf Cabrio

My photo shoot on Azgar’s slammed and sexy Volkswagen Mk1 Golf Cabrio appeared in issue 60 of VW Magazine Australia. The car has been a largely DIY build between Azgar and his mate Manuel, whose patina Beetle I photographed for the same magazine around 12 months earlier (see it here).
With a 2L 16-valve Seat Ibeza engine swap with those funky trumpets hanging off the front, and riding low on the 15×8.25in Workmeister rims, it looks sick!

Cover Car: Owen Rice's Holden CV8 Monaro

I photographed Owen Rice’s beautiful Holden CV8 Monaro burnout car for the front cover of the return issue of Street Machine Commodores. This is so much more than a simple skid car. It’s also a fully fledged show car, complete with custom interior, detailed undercarriage and smooth engine bay. There is detail everywhere! Oh, and it makes almost 1200hp from its 400ci, 8/71-blown stroker.

Feature Car: Nick Blunck's 1961 Volkswagen Beetle

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.

Feature Car: Peta Psaras' Holden VE SS-V Wagon

Not so long ago, cars loaded with fancy interior trim and in-car entertainment hardware like this were almost always under-powered and slow. Peta Psaras wasn’t having any of that with her Holden VE SS-V wagon. Nope, hers makes 617hp at the wheels thanks to a stout combo from Sam’s Performance and that last piece of the puzzle is part of the reason why the car made it into the return issue of Street Machine Commodores!

Feature Car: Luke Bailey's Wide Body Holden VE Commodore Ute

Now for something a little different! So good to see the late model stuff getting the full kustom treatment. In this case Luke Bailey’s Holden VE Commodore ute doesn’t just come with fancy interior trim and car audio gear, but it’s also slammed into the ground on airbags. On top of that, the guards and bodykit has been pumped to accommodate those massive 22×9.5in Simmons rims! Oh, yeah, then there’s the Vortech-blown Alloytec V6 up front. Sweet! The shoot was featured in the return issue of Street Machine Commodores, which is still on sale now.

Feature Car: Ben Hiles' 622rwhp Holden VE Calais V

Most of my photo shoots take place away from home. Typically in areas like Sydney or further afield. So it was nice, not only to shoot a vehicle within an hour from my house, but also to get a close look at Ben Hiles’ sleeper VE Calais V. I shot it for the latest issue of Street Machine’s LSX Tuner magazine. With a rebuilt, forged 6L LS under the bonnet, fettled further thanks to a Magnusson MP2300 blower, this grandpa-coloured VE makes 622rwhp! I bet this thing surprises some folks at the traffic lights.

Feature Car: Jason Sandner's Holden LX Torana

Jason Sandner’s incredibly-detailed Holden LX Torana appeared in the November 2018 issue of Street Machine. It is the second time I’ve been able to get up close and personal with the car and it never fails to blow my tiny mind. Jason has done an incredible job of building the car, which is highly detailed, both on top and bottom. powered by a 378ci alloy Donovan SBC, it’s also potent!

Feature Cars: Ray and Tony Elia's Holden VK Commodores

About the only thing better than one tough, tubbed HDT-style VK Commodore is two and between brothers Ray and Tony Elia, that’s exactly what I got to photograph a few months ago for the return issue of Street Machine Commodores! Ray’s white machine is blown, while Tony’s Blue Meanie replica BT1 boasts a wicked Injection Perfection trumpet setup.
