LIFE ON THE EDGE – E92 BMW M3 (Part 1)

I was fortunate enough last week to get the call from Amy Bell, Brendon Greaves partner, to come up to Barbagallo Raceway in Perth, to be a part of a test session on their new LS-powered E92 BMW M3 Drift car. The machine has been under a comprehensive build by Brendon and a team of […]

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 […]

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 […]

I AM THE SPEEDHUNTER

So, I woke up this morning and logged onto Speedhunters like I do and there I am at the top of the page! Yeah Buddy! What a great surprise for me. The car is one hell of a tough Porsche built by the guys here in Perth known as Ktec Autohaus. You might remember that […]

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, […]

GRANDMASTER FLASH – 2009 Senator Signature

I think a lot of us don’t give the modern car builders the props they truly deserve. Sure, steel bumpers and 15-inch wheels will always be cool and contemporary, but not everybody is into them. Fabian Augustine, the manager at Progressive Car Sound Vision in Rockingham, is more a fan of late-model, high-tech stuff; and […]
