Feature Car: Brendyn Wardell's Holden VL Commodore

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: Tony Rohr's Holden VH Commodore

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!

Cover Car: Joe Tyler's 1964 EH Holden Wagon

I was presented with a fresh challenge for this photo shoot on Joe Tyler’s – one that I’d been meaning to do more of for years: car-to-car tracking shots. The brief was to capture the balls-out, blown 416ci LS3-powered ’64 wagon on the street for the front cover of Street Machine. A ton of research on locations, technique and a borrowed lens with image stabilisation later and this is the result. The car appeared on the front of the October 2019 issue.
