The folks at Nulon and Impossible Fabrications are back with another hybrid creation. If you remember the EG Civic they built a while back, you’ll know they’re no stranger to an angle grinder and welder. That little Civic is now both rear wheel drive and turbo, or basically what you could call an S15 200sx […]
The folks at Nulon and Impossible Fabrications are back with another hybrid creation. If you remember the EG Civic they built a while back, you’ll know they’re no stranger to an angle grinder and welder. That little Civic is now both rear wheel drive and turbo, or basically what you could call an S15 200sx / Silvia in a Civic body shell. Grub from Impossible contacted me to let me know they’re undertaking a new project. This time they’re doing us Aussies proud by not only starting with a local car – a Ford Falcon – but also choosing a UTE! You’ll have to continue below to find out their plans for this hauler…
Jeff is just a regular Aussie bloke; a guy who wants to tinker with cars in his shed and share his progress with whoever wants to see it. I don’t know his work background but he seems to be the kind of guy who can do a bit of everything, and he’s giving it a red hot go with a 1974 Porsche rebuild. There are no delusions of grandeur, no merch to sell, no special effects, no swearing and no trash talking for minutes on end. That’s what I love about this channel, the build, and Jeff. It’s just a refreshingly down-to-earth viewing experience in a booming YouTube market full of people who seem to love the sound of their own voice more than they do working on cars. Go Jeff! I’ll be sure to keep adding videos as they are released.
I love a good Volksrod, and if previous posts are anything to go by, so do most of you! Each of the well-modified Beetles I’ve featured have always done well with readers and generated plenty of track-back links to the article. This particular one was only submitted to me very recently, but when I saw the quality of the work and the documentation I knew it had to go up on the site as soon as possible. The thread is only four pages but is jam packed with great imagery covering the whole modification process. What sets it off for me is the perfectly oldschool colour choice, I love it!
Thanks to Hunter for submitting. The build is actually by his dad and uncle! Click here for more Beetle builds.
I love hearing from owners of previously featured cars, especially when they tell me about how people ask them about their car after seeing it on Build-Threads.com. Very recently I heard from Petter, the owner of the extremely bright green 993 that started it’s life as a Targa. With the car now complete I thought I’d post a little update on it. You can click the image below or click here to go back to the original post, where you’ll find some new images and the link to the build thread.
Long-term readers will no doubt be accustomed to my self-awareness of how infrequent I post. When I started the site in 2009, I wanted to post at least twice a week, nowadays I’m lucky to post once a month! Life changes, families are started, and spare time becomes a rare commodity. Very recently I have also started a new job which I absolutely love, but it is more demanding and thus leaves me with even less spare time than I had before. With all of this in mind, I have decided to…be a stubborn asshole and keep running Build-Threads.com just the way it is, haha. But seriously, I’m bringing in some reinforcements. I still have pages and pages of submissions from over the years, some great, some not so great, and I’m going to get some help sorting through them. The fact is while some blogs crash and burn and some flourish, I like Build-Threads.com just the way it is, and I think you guys do too. I never hoped for it to blow up into a media empire or anything like that, it’s just my little corner of the internet that I use to share builds that I like with people who have the same interests as me. It isn’t going anywhere, I just need a bit of assistance, and I’m okay with that. There will always be new builds to post, old builds to update, YouTube videos to watch, the Datsun is still evolving, albeit slowly, and so is my garage, plus I have a new idea or two up my sleeve, it just takes time.
I thank you for your eternal patience, and I hope you’ll stick around.
