Mick Molloy's 1973 Holden HQ Tonner - 4
Custom Utes issue 45 is due to hit the stands soon and contains a tonne of Hosking Industries feature car photography, feature stories and coverage of the 2011 Taren Point Rat Day. One of the feature cars inside is Mick Molloy's sweet 1973 Holden HQ 'tonner', pictured here.
Powered by a hard-revving 327ci small-block Chev' V8, the bright orange ute has been a collaborative effort between Mick and some of his employees, with the end goal to drag race the Holden and destroy tyres at the annual Summernats festival in Canberra. You can read all about the caged machine in issue 45 of Custom Utes, on sale soon.
While this was an outdoor shoot in full sun-to-light cloud, we still made use of our Canon Speedlite flashes and strobist fans will find lighting information on our Flickr page, as well as the usual EXIF data.
Strobist: three Speedlite flashes with two lighting the side of the car and one lighting the front, all on stands at about head height and on full power, triggered by Cactus V4s.
