LAST RIDE – R.I.P Vic Brockman

WHAT does it take to get a car built in less than five months? A bunch of good mates sure helps, and so does a deadline that you absolutely, positively can’t miss. For Perth’s Vic Brockman, this HT wagon was meant to be a project that he could tinker on when he was a bit […]

STERLING SILVER – Mk I Ford Escort

My timing must have been perfect the fateful morning when I saw Mark’s Escort again. I had just written a list of cars that I wanted to photograph for some magazines and buried in there was the ‘silver Mk I Escort.’ I reckon it was around 2 years ago or so that I saw the […]

LONG DISTANCE HAULER – 1954 FJ Holden

For some people, getting the right car, the right job and the right finish are the most important things. For Trevor Floyd, they were all that mattered. Distance was not an issue. Trevor doesn’t live on the outskirts of the city though; he is not even close to being just around the corner, he actually […]

MUSCLE MAKEOVER -1972 Camaro

To be honest; the second-gen Camaros really haven’t had much attention till late, which is a damn shame because when done right, like this example, they look as tough as nails. Since what feels like, the beginning of time, the only Camaros people believed that were worth modifying were the first gens – the ’67 […]

BLUE BLOODED WARRIOR – Ford EL GT

When Ford announced their decision to release the 30th Anniversary GT Falcon in 1997, many feared that it would be the last we would ever see of the Grand Touring icon. Dale Parker certainly thought so, but with only 272 GT’s being rolled off of the production line in Broadmeadows it was almost impossible to […]

ROCKET SCIENCE – Ford GT40

The GT40 is one of those cars you can’t help but fall in love with. It carries a faultless design and aesthetic, it is a proven race track performer with a thoroughbred pedigree, and well hey, they are just cool as shit, right? Well, David Stean must like them a whole bunch because this is […]

VOODOO BLUE – Dodge Hot Rod

Inspiration. Everyone that builds a modified car has found it somewhere, whether it was in the pages of a magazine or from older siblings or mates that had hot cars, at some point there an ignition source, a spark that sets you on a path to build your version of the dream machine. Alan Smart […]

A CHANGE OF HEART – HX Holden Ute

The reaction to Chris Dicker’s HZ ute could best be described as polarising. With the bonnet shut, most people would just see a pretty tidy Sandman ute, then they’d probably figure out that the Sandman stripes seem to morph into an XW GT stripe at the front of the car. With the bonnet up, the […]

HIDDEN TALENTS – 1982 XD Falcon

Jonathan Calautti is a very humble dude indeed. Pay him a compliment about his car, and he is not too sure on how to take it or how to respond. He was shocked when I asked to photograph his ’82 XD Fairmont Ghia a few years ago I had seen the car a few times […]
