J-ROD ’67 Chevy Nova

Nova

Every time I hear “Chevy Nova”, all I can think of is “I remember you used to drive that crappy blue Chevy Nova. What are you driving now?”…”Same crappy blue Chevy Nova”. Now, if you’re a bit younger than me, you might need to look that one up! The Nova in this feature is not […]

Mazzarini RT V6 – Custom Car Build

Mazzarini16

I feel as though I’ve been moving away from the original intentions of this website, and that is linking you to interesting builds from around the world. What I mean by that is, I think the site-hosted builds like the Ferrari F40, Honda City Turbo II, EG Civic/S15 Silvia, and my own garage build have […]

Ferrari F40 LM Restoration Part 4

1887369d1400261272-f40-lm-restoration-overhead-shot-140514-017-copy-3-_edited-1

Part 4 of the drool-enducing F40 LM restoration is here, and we are so, so close to seeing it that sweet twin turbo V8 being brought to life. I’m trying to update this thread more regularly than I used to, so hopefully I can get part 5 done in the not too distant future. Click […]

EG Civic / S15 Silvia – Buttoning things up

10540846_10152734133896449_5400149961524967040_n-940x705

We’re already up to Part 5 of the Impossible Fabrications / Nulon EG Civic build. In this installment we start at the back of the car to see the rear suspension framework finalised, and an alloy fuel tank fabricated. Then we work our way along the tailshaft and custom transmission tunnel, before heading to the […]

Project Honda City Turbo II – Bringing the engine home

Screen Shot 2014-10-24 at 3.44.37 pm

It’s been a while since the last Honda City Turbo II update, so I thought I’d back track a little bit and show you some of the smaller jobs that happened in between the engine refresh. I wanted the last post to concentrate on the bulk of the engine work, so I chose to emit […]

1976 International Scout Traveler

Traveler

Even though I’m not into off-roading myself, I really enjoy reading builds from this dirt-loving subculture. Reason being is that I get to see the same metal-working techniques being implemented for a different purpose, it’s just interesting to see the similarities and differences. High instead of low, mud instead of asphalt, dirt instead of shine, […]

20B-powered Time Attack NC MX5

20B-MX5

Time Attack season is almost upon us, with World Time Attack Challenge just around the corner (click here for my photos from 2010), I thought it would be a great time to share this long-term build from Australia. The brainchild of a Mazda aficionado and die-hard collector, this NC MX5 welcomes the addition of firstly […]

EG Civic / S15 Silvia – Rear suspension & driveline

civ4

The guys at Impossible Fabrications are absolutely rocketing along with the Nulon EG Civic build, I can barely keep up! In part 3, we saw the SR20DET inserted into the engine bay, using the S15 front suspension, crossmember and strut towers. Now it’s the rear of the car getting some very similar attention… Click here […]

Saab 96 / Mazda MX5

Saab-MX5

I remember back in 2011 when I posted a certain chassis swap build, I commented on how long it had been since the last one was featured on the site. Well it sure doesn’t seem like we have that problem any more, because it feels like almost every second build is a chassis swap! If […]

EG Civic / S15 Silvia – Engine installed!

Nulon-Civic

Part 3 of the Nulon / Impossible Fabrications EG Civic is already here! In this update, we see the S15 SR20DET engine and gearbox find their way home. Of course they were always going to fit perfectly, because this particular little Honda already has a full S15 front end, which we saw installed in Part […]
