WHITE KNIGHT – FORD FG XR6

It seems to be a common occurrence with the customers at Monsta Torque – once they experience their first round of modifications and get a taste of power, they want more.

STYLE GUIDE – MAZDA RX7

I couldn’t have picked a worse day to shoot Nat Graham-Helwig’s slick FD RX7 – the last thing I was expecting was a torrential downpour in the middle of the Western Australian summer. We both agreed the worst was past us, so we planned on meeting up at 8 PM. We hadn’t even set up […]

HELLRAISER – E55 Charger

Sometimes it’s nice to dream. The US-based Ramchargers were a group of Chrysler engineers that campaigned a string of drag cars back in the day – all with the blessing of Mother Mopar – so imagine if Chrysler Australia had the coin and interest to have supported something similar here?

BACK IN BLACK – 1982 VH COMMODORE

It’s undergone quite a few changes in the 21 years he’s owned it, but Shane Platts’s VH SL/E Commodore is still his first love. Like all first loves, it has ripped out his heart a time or two, but it’s a bond that’s tough to break. “I bought it with my dad back in 1998 […]

THE OLD HOON – PETER FLINT

If you’re a fan of the burnout scene, then you’ve probably been looking at the back of Peter Flint’s head – usually protected under a wide-brimmed straw hat – for a number of years.

V10 VIPER-POWERED CHARGER TO CROSS THE NULLARBOR FOR SUMMERNATS 33

For the past four years, Lennard Vidot has been building this ’68 Dodge Charger, and it’s a much different animal to the wild methanol-fuelled Holden he built 10 years ago. “I got the Charger out of California. It was an old drag car and it had a half cage and gutted interior. It was a […]
