CHANGE OF HEART – 1973 XA Falcon

Duncan Macfarlane’s ’73 XA Falcon is one of those simple cars that you can’t help but like. The neat four-door wears a few battle scars, some mild patina and a tough stance thanks to some big rubber on satin-finished Centerlines – the car looks super cool, but the real story is tucked away under the […]

HIGH PRIORITY – 1978 Ford F100

With its eye-catching Sting Red paint and tough-looking black rims, Shaun Stuart’s awesome F-100 it really looks the goods. The icing on the cake is the immaculate matching red and black interior trim, stitched together by 26-year-old Shaun himself, who’s a marine and auto trimmer by trade. That’s one wild F-truck, mate! How did you come by […]

ART OF THE VEHICLE – DAVE DUNCAN

It all started when I spotted a picture on the South Australian Hot Rod Heritage Page on Facebook. A low slung channelled ’32 roadster, the candy apple red paint gleaming in the sun as it made its way along the dirt road into Brooksfield Dragway in South Australia. But this wasn’t an SA car, it […]

INSTANT ATTRACTION – 1975 TX Gemini

One word comes to mind when looking at Brodie De Aguiar’s Gemini – impact! The car looks incredible in motion or standing still. The humble Gemini has never looked better, from the retina searing colour to the exquisite wheel choice, and of course, that aggressive stance. The car stands out at any event. His recent […]

FOR SALE – 1973 PLYMOUTH BARRACUDA

While I was down in Albany having some time away from Perth, I had the chance to photograph a few cars. One of the cars was Jason Pages’ 1973, 340-powered ‘Cuda. He wanted some great images to help sell the car. Rather than pay for just the basic ‘Bronze’ package, Jason went the whole hog […]

KARMAGEDDON! – VL Commodore

This could have been another neat and tidy VL Calais with an RB30 turbo and Convo Pros, but Perth’s Steven Gledich had other ideas. Bought as a roller out of Melbourne, the car was already set up with mini-tubs, a 9-inch, slicks, wing and even a parachute mount. “It was not a bad thing when […]

THE X-FACTOR – Ford XR Falcon

If you spotted Giles Mortimer’s XR Falcon on the street, you’d be forgiven for thinking it was a neat cruiser, probably powered by a mild 302 Windsor with barely enough grunt to pull the skin off a delicious rice pud. And you’d be very wrong. Beneath the unmodified bonnet of this unassuming resto sits a […]

‘RUNNING ON EMPTY’ FOX1 – 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T

When it comes to Australian star cars, there’s only a handful that made the same impact as Fox’s 1970 Dodge Challenger from 1982’s iconic flick Running On Empty. The majority of movie cars are destroyed in the process of becoming legends, or else parted out and scrapped after filming, or, dare we suggest it, restored to […]

HOT WHEELS HOT ROD!

I think my young nephew Braxton summed up Nick Hansen’s unique pick up best – he reckoned it was a life-size hot wheels car. When I quizzed him some more, he remarked about the flames over the purple paint and the massive wheels – he didn’t believe it was even real. That reaction seems the […]
