Cover Car: Dean Rickard's 1969 Holden HT Monaro

Car owners often ask me the same question when I’m shooting their own cars: “What is the best car you’ve ever photographed?”
It’s a ridiculously hard question to answer definitively. The best how? Best engine bay, best paint, best stance, best trim, best race car, best ‘cool’ factor, best… you get the idea. A lot of cars have been amazing for different reasons.
perhaps that was until I got tasked with photographing the latest creation from Down Town Kustoms in Taree, NSW. Dean Rickard’s 1969 Holden HT Monaro GTS is off-the-charts in just about every regard. The bodywork still numbs my brain to this day; the interior is somehow understated, elegant and show-conquering all at the same time; the engine bay is to die for despite there being no blower or turbos in sight and the undercarriage is a work of art, even though it isn’t all glossy or chromed.
If you can find one, pick up a copy of the January 2021 issue of Street Machine to read the whole incredible story.

Feature Car: John Dennis' 1973 Ford Escort

John Dennis’ 1973 Ford Escort is a genre-busting example of what can happen when you forget about current trends and build from your gut. powered by an old-school FJ20T and slammed on its arse, the Esky is making 260rwhp on a run-in tune (25psi planned on E85) and boasts a host of awesome engineering ideas.
Mini tubs (allowing 17x10in Foregline rims under the bum), pumped guards and a Spartan interior almost devoid of soft furnishings makes this one early small-Ford to remember! The shoot was featured in the January 2021 issue of Street Machine.

Feature Car: Mark Cirillo's 1974 Holden LJ Torana

Mark Cirillo’s 1974 Holden LJ Torana was living in his dreams for almost 20 years before he got the chance to actually own it. Now that it’s his, Mark has restored the LJ Torana coupe – transforming it into his perfect aussie muscle vision, including a tough 355ci Holden stroker and Ford 9in rear end.

Incredibly, Mark was able to preserve the car’s decades-old paintwork and the use of the Mawer three-piece 13in rims just adds to to the retro appeal. Step inside Mark Cirillo’s 1974 Holden LJ Torana and the vintage theme continues thanks to the largely GTR-spec’ upholstery.

The car was featured in the November issue of Street Machine magazine.

Feature Car: Dave Steele's Holden HQ Monaro

My shoot on Dave Steele’s immaculate HQ LS Monaro was featured in the April 2019 issue of Street Machine. It was the first time I’d light painted a car in a studio environment and I’m pretty chuffed with the way it came out – particularly being a white car in a white room.
Powered by a stout 427ci Dart-based SBC, the car is heavy with attention to detail and sits with its smooth arse well into the weeds (which I love!).

Feature Car: Charlie Saliba's 1971 Chrysler Valiant VH Charger R/T E38

My photo shoot on Charlie Saliba’s 1971 Chrysler Valiant VH Charger R/T E38 was featured in the September 2018 issue of Street Machine. The 265ci Hemi six-powered coupe took a long time to get to this point, but the results of Charlie’s hard labour is evident no matter where you look and you can read all about it in the Sept. 2018 issue.
