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. When Perth-based Dan bought the car it […]

KANDY KRUSH – 2001 VX Commodore

I have known Trav and Sel Harper for a number of years now and I have photographed their 2001 VX Commodore once before for a private shoot. It was just after Trav had transformed the car to his tastes and he wanted some updated photos of the car. This time around, we met down in […]

ROAD WARRIOR – 1966 Ford Galaxie

Ford’s full-size Galaxie is an American icon, having served as police cars, family trucksters, cabs, and even race cars powered by the thundering 427ci big-block. Along with taking scalps in the NHRA, Galaxies were used by Ford to take NASCAR glory in the mid-60s with drivers like Fred Lorenzen. So how come we don’t see […]

FUELLED BY PASSION – 1970 XW Fairmont

Johnny Ielati’s passion for his 1970 XW Fairmont has never faded and with that, his devotion to creating the ultimate example has to be applauded – even when life was well and truly against him. “The XW is my very first car and I bought it about a month after I got my license in […]

PREMIER LEAGUE – 1968 HK Wagon

Michael Hill has had his fair share of tough streeters but none as fine as this 1968 Holden HK Premier wagon. He recalls that he has owned somewhere between 40-50 cars and that was some time ago, because Michael had a bit of a hiatus from the modified car scene. Other things in life were […]

RAZOR’S EDGE – VK Commodore

When you have owned a car a while, you sometimes get an itch to start changing things up or making the odd improvement here and there just to make things fresher – it helps to keep the passion alive. Sometimes a situation can tip your hand into making a change though, and for Paul Smith, […]
