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 […]

I AM NOW AN OFFICIAL SPEEDHUNTER!

So, I woke up this morning to an email from the editor of the Speedhunters website, Paddy McGrath, alerting me to the fact that I am now one of the chosen few across the globe – I am now an official Speedhunter. After submitting three pieces of work in the ‘I am the Speedhunter’ category, […]

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 […]

YOU WOULDN’T READ ABOUT IT – Mustang GT500

S FOR STYLE – 1962 Valiant

This sweet S-Series Valiant was put together as a father/son effort by Phil and Mike Roycroft from Perth. They must know what they’re doing, as it went together pretty quickly, taking around a year from go to whoa. Of course, it helps if your son has inherited the Mopar madness and has an old Valiant […]

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 […]

BACK ON THE BLOCK – My 1800 Returns

It’s hard to admit this but it was basic laziness that has seen my beloved Mazda 1800 off the road for the last 18 or so months. The car was suffering battery and power issues and some other electrical gremlins, so I just left it in the shed. I shouldn’t have. Every time I thought […]

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 […]
