1932 Ruxton Restoration

Ruxton

It looks like we have a few firsts, here. This just might be the oldest car to ever feature on Build-Threads.com, and most definitely the first Ruxton! In fact, I’d never heard of the manufacturer until I stumbled across this thread, so I did a quick Wiki to get up to speed. The fact that […]

Exclusive look: Peasnell Racing Designs

I know for the most part that Build-Threads.com is kind of a one-way thing. I post, you read, that type of deal. But the truth is that I love hearing from readers via email, Twitter, the Facebook page, and the new Facebook Discussion Group. Whilst everyone’s projects can’t be featured, I still love seeing what […]

Building a Morgan 3-wheeler replica

3-wheeler

A common theme that I notice with build threads and the people who create them, is that if you want something that is out of your reach, you make it yourself. That’s exactly the kind of attitude I found when perusing the non-Datsun area of The 510 Realm and stumbled across this build. The owner […]

Project Honda City Turbo II – Engine refresh

t

This Honda City Turbo II seems to be a hit with you guys, and it just goes to show that it’s not all about big horsepower and expensive cars. In the previous post you saw the engine being removed and torn down in preparation for a refresh. While the whole engine won’t be receiving a […]

A tale of two 911s

911s

Do you remember when I made the ‘people who get it‘ post tag? I created it so I could tag the best quality builds, the one’s that you never want to end, the ones that make you go back to the beginning once you reach the last page. Kris is a perpetual offender of such […]

Project Honda City Turbo II – Teardown

F4AAF608-07DA-40FB-B8CE-E6AF089C03B9

A few weeks ago I made a post about my visit to a friends place to check out their new Honda City Turbo II build (which you can read here). I promised I’d post their build progress here if there was enough interest, and boy was there ever! There was a resounding “YES” to my […]

Renault Espace / Lexus LS400

Espace

When people think Renault Espace, they either think of it in it’s basic form as a vanilla people mover, or, if they’re anything like you and I, they think of the completely insane F1 version. But what if modifying one wasn’t left to the devices of a motorsports company, what if a car guy got […]

V8-powered Fiero (355 Replica)

13

When thinking of a suitable intro for this post, I wanted to share my opinion of some replica builds without offending anyone, then I read the owners own intro and realised he summed it up for me with this gem: “The problem I’ve seen with many rebodies though, is that too many of them end […]

’69 Karmann Ghia, powered by Subaru.

This feature has been a long time coming, and to be honest I’m not sure why I didn’t do it sooner. You see, Mike is one of the few people that liked to share updates of his build on the Build Threads Facebook page, and every time he’d post an image, readers would love it. […]

Project Honda City Turbo II – Introduction

DSC_0097

A couple of friends of mine (the same guys I went to Winton with) have embarked on a joint project car. The car in question is an obscure little Honda, and it’s not a Civic. Nope, it’s even better, it’s a City Turbo II. If you’re unfamiliar with these awesome little cars, you can read […]
