BUILT from eBay [video build x4]

builtbyebay

So, I’ve become a bit of a YouTube junky lately. My almost nightly ritual consists of plonking myself down on the couch with a hot coffee, firing up the iPad, plugging in my over-ear headphones, and catching up on all of my favourite subscriptions. Some of those include /DRIVE, HoonTV, Jay Leno’s Garage, Marchettino, Mighty […]

Porsche ’83 targa to 993 RSR coupe

83-993-RSR

When I was a kid, Porsches were only owned by doctors or business men, or plastered on bedroom walls of kids like me. Now it’s more than obvious that the once unreachable German exotics are firmly in the grasps of people like you and I who like to tear things apart and put them back […]

’91 Subaru Legacy RS Type RA

LegacyRA

While this build itself is very impressive and highly detailed, it’s the other automotive work that the owner partakes in that will really pique your interest. His car of choice is a 1991 Subaru Legacy RS, a love affair that started while serving an apprenticeship with Subaru, working on race and rally cars for Possum […]

Triumph TR6…or Z06?

TriumphZ06

Firstly, I feel I need to apologise for the amount of LSx builds on the front page, as I generally like to aim for a bit of variety on the site. But hey, if people keep stuffing them into cars in interesting ways, I have to keep featuring them! This one is a bit more […]

AWD Ford Fiesta Cosworth

JWRC Fiesta

It’s been a while since we’ve had one of these completely bonkers builds. You know the type; pedestrian fwd hatch, completely gutted, filled with a skeleton of tubing, a north/south facing engine conversion, race-quality suspension and a change of driveline orientation? Yeah, one of those! While I could make up some story about how this […]

LSx powered E36 BMW

LSxM3

Ahh, the humble LSx swap. Some people might think that LS-swaps are overdone, played out, or whatever your buzzword of choice is. But I guess if you provide a range of compact, affordable, reliable, and easy to tune engines, people are going to use them! Personally, I’m all for them, they look great and appear […]

Mercedes V8 Unimog

UniMog

Anyone else wondering what a Unimog is? If you are, like I was, I’ll do the Wiki-ing for you… The name Unimog is pronounced [ˈuːnɪmɔk] in German and is an acronym for the German“UNIversal-MOtor-Gerät”, Gerät being the German word for machine or device. The more you know, hey? This Mercedes Unimog (we can pretend we […]

NA MX5 nut-and-bolt OCD rebuild

OCD-MX5

Imagine for a second that you just bought a car, but that car was located 1800 miles away, meaning you had to travel that distance to collect the car, and then drive it all the way back home. Now, keep your imagination going, and ponder how you’d feel if that same car got stolen from […]

VR HSV Senator LSX454

VR-HSV

I always love when an Australian car shows up in my inbox, I have a soft spot for our local product (even though our industry has all but shut down), and I even owned a Commodore some years ago. This particular piece of Aussie machinery is a VR Holden Commodore of the HSV variety, HSV […]

Diesel GC8 Subaru WRX

Diesel22B

Talk about thinking outside the square. If you bought yourself a dead-stock GC8 Subaru Impreza to attack Pikes Peak, what engine choice would you go for? A single turbo EJ20 as found in the WRX? Or maybe the twin turbo version from a JDM Legacy? Perhaps you’d be more inclined to go for the bigger […]
