KEEPING UP WITH APPEARANCES -1974 HQ Holden

It has to be said that Ryan Shreeve has good taste in cars. He knows what he likes, and he knows what will work. He might even be smarter than all of us too because he buys cars that are already completed, gets a good deal and then puts his own spin on them – […]

THE CHOSEN ONE – 1982 GJ Sigma

It is incredible to think that a simple Encouragement Award at a minor car show was the trigger for the build on WA’s most awarded show car and just as amazing, the car is a 1982 GJ Sigma, yep, a Sigma. It just goes to show you that build quality and attention to detail are […]

PURPLE HAZE – Ford Model T

History tells us that the 60s were a pretty wild time in the USA. People’s clothes, hairstyles and attitudes all reflected the radical times that were happening, and the car culture followed suit, particularly in California.

On Wolfgang Backer’s fridge once rested a single photo cut from a magazine – it was a black XY Falcon, the type of car that dreams were made of. At the time, just sitting metres away in his garage, was an XY Fairmont that was more of a nightmare than a dream: “The funny thing […]

ROCK AROUND THE BLOCK – 1932 Ford 5-Window

It is almost unbelievable to think that the movie classic, American Graffiti, debuted at cinemas around the globe 45 years ago. It doesn’t seem right somehow. The year was 1973 and a local Perth bloke, Neville Riseley, was one of the lucky people heading to the premiere at the iconic Perth cinema, the   Piccadilly. It […]

MAKING MOVES – 2001 Nissan S15

Drifting isn’t a hobby or a past time for Brendon Greaves, it is a lifestyle. Whether it is hitting the corner with an insane angle or pulling a motor out at 3am in the morning, it is all about drifting. He lives and breathes the sport. If you have been following my blog recently, you […]

POWER MOVE – VH Commodore

It’s hard to believe, but most of the first-generation Commodores are over 30 years old. Like Monaros and Toranas before them, good ones are getting hard to find, but as Dan Malone’s positively evil-looking METHFIEND VH proves, they make a great foundation for a head-kicking Pro Street build.
