Subaru Impreza 5.0 RWD


Let’s take it waaaay back to the start of 2011 (that’s over four and half years ago, wow!). That’s when, at the end of my Speedhunters guest post, I posted a teaser image of an upcoming build. That image was a GC Impreza with an SR20 sitting neatly between the strut towers. Rob is the […]

Pro Pontiac Pro-Touring Firebird


This build has been sitting in my drafts folder for two years, TWO WHOLE YEARS! I’m always fighting with myself over posting builds before they’re complete, but this one is just too good to sit on, so I figured it was finally time (plus I like posting follow-ups on popular builds as they evolve). This […]

Honda N600 – VFR800 swap!


This build came to my attention via it’s eBay auction, of all places. A friend linked it to me and within the description was a build thread link. Now who of us here would be stupid enough to NOT click that link? What I found was an obscure little 70′s Honda whose body shape I […]

GT3 powered Porsche 962 replica


In much the same vein as the recently updated Bentley EXP Speed 8 and BMW M1 replica builds, we have another 2-seat endurance racing type vehicle being hand built by an enthusiast putting their own spin on things. This one starts with a blank canvas composite body and a drive-train donated from a 997 GT3, […]

Builder Spotlight: Matt Clark


After sifting through a mammoth 350+ page thread for last weeks featured build, it was a nice change of pace to receive an email from Matt Clark, a designer who has his automotive and non-autmotive work featured on his Tumblr page. Matt has built an assortment of cars from various eras and genres, each of […]

Triumph GT6 with Jaguar V12 power


Here’s some real home-grown fabrication for you. A V12 converted to twin 4-barrel carbs, shortened Jaguar rear end, BMW front end, endless amounts of body work, chassis fabrication, flat floor and wooden bucks to custom make sheet-metal panels. This is backyard ingenuity at it’s best. Edit: I should probably mention that the thread is over […]

’72 BMW E9 3.0 CSL restomod


After club racing his S54 powered 1979 e12 BMW for years, Brendan decided he’d like to try something a bit different. So with that in mind, he picked himself up an E9 to build into his vision of a resto-modded club racer. For powering duties, he chose a s38b36 straight-6 out of an E34 M5, and added other […]

Volvo 242 with BMW V10 Power


I love how Volvos are the domestic “do it all” cars of the Scandinavian region. They get pulled apart and re-built in a host of different ways that the rest of the world would never dare. This 242 begins it’s build thread with a BMW v10 already nestled in the engine bay, and things only […]

Porsche 911 V8 RSR


You have to give it to Hal, he sure is sticking it to the man! Not only does he shove a V8 into the rear of his Porsche, he actually cuts up his own fenders and fits his own wide body kit without having to fly someone half way around the world to do it […]

EG Civic / S15 Silvia – Stage 1 Complete


It’s been almost a year since we caught up with the Impossible Fabrications / Nulon EG Civic crossed with an S15 Silvia. The good news is, this little beast is now considered complete as far as stage one goes, and has been tearing up the streets and the track, turning rear tyres to dust. Now the team […]
