GROUP THERAPY – 1983 Holden VH SS Commodore

Stuffing a turbo LS into a first-generation Commodore is a bloody good way to build a seven-second street car, as we’ve seen lately with cars like Adam Rogash’s VK, ALLSHOW. Darren Clinton’s immaculate VH SS looks to subscribe to this newsletter by combining a killer stance on fat rubber, with that immaculate HDT-inspired bodywork, and […]

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 […]

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 […]

‘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 […]

THIS IS NOW, THAT WAS THEN – 1941 Willys Coupe

Mark Allen, a self-confessed jack of all trades, is a man that knows that he likes and that is his street rodded 1941 Willys Coupe. He has owned it since ‘99 and assures me that he plans to be buried with it. The car was a heavy hitter back in the day – winning over […]
