My visit to Mooneyes USA

In September last year, my wife and I headed to the US and Mexico for our honeymoon. While I’m not the type of guy to go out of my way to do car stuff when I’m traveling – I didn’t even visit one workshop while I was in Japan! – I discovered that Mooneyes was […]

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 […]

attachment-2

A few weeks ago I made the 2 hour trek up north to Winton Raceway for my second ever track day in my Datsun 1600. I have to say it was a fantastic weekend, due not only to the great company of my friends Tony and Ryan, but also the smooth running of the day […]

Classic Japan 2013

Yesterday in Melbourne we were gifted with a gorgeous sunny day to mark the start of summer. It also happened to be the same day as Classic Japan, a casual car show catering for Japanese cars and motorbikes that are 25 years or older. No prizes, no trophies, no egos, just a congregation of the […]

New logo + Time Attack Lada

It’s been a long time coming, but I’ve finally updated the Build Threads logo to a much more versatile format. Gone is the fluro green, in it’s place is a nice vintage green, which opens up the possibilities for printed merchandise, so stay tuned.   I also thought I’d dip my toes into the very-serious […]

New page: Exploded parts images

Have you seen the new page that I just created? Look, up there, at the top of the page, see it? It says “Exploded parts images”. I wasn’t sure what else to call it, but you know what I mean. Head to the page to check out cars and bikes disassembled and laid out neatly, […]

I’m working on something…

…something big. Sorry for the lack of updates, but it’s for good reason. I’m working on a huge post, where I’ll be featuring a full complete build. That means there’s no need for you to click a link to go to a build thread, it’ll all be on this site. What does that mean for […]
