THE TON

Australian Muscle Car - - Muscle Artefact -

With our land­mark 100th is­sue just six months away, we are get­ting all nos­tal­gic here at AMC HQ and dig­ging up be­hindthe-scenes pics from our ear­li­est days. Here’s is­sue #11’s cover image ‘un­plugged’. The lime green of the Hinton fam­ily’s A9X (sis­ter car to the re­cently auc­tioned Bre­ville­mo­bile) just ‘punches’ off the cover with the help of pho­tog­ra­pher Eric Williamson’s clever stu­dio lighting. Note the il­lu­mi­na­tion from un­der­neath – and the white board po­si­tioned from the front – en­sur­ing dark blue sec­tions are ad­e­quately lit, so the front spoiler doesn’t get lost in a sea of black. Then there’s the black sheet be­hind the driv­ers’ side win­dows, help­ing the mag’s graphic de­signer weave his magic when etch­ing Williamson’s raw image. This stun­ner has in­spired us to put an­other A9X (or two) on next is­sue’s cover.
