What I’m Watching: Ferrari F40 – Analogue Animal

Yes, I am obsessed with F40s. No, I don’t apologise. This lovely 17min film from XCARFilms combines a touching monologue by F40 expert and former racer, John Pogson, mixed with some on-track footage of a pair of special F40′s. Make sure you turn your speakers up when the two prancing horses step on it.

What I’m Watching: Welding Tips & Tricks

This is a channel whose value I cannot put into words. When I first bought my MIG welder and started learning how to use it, weldingtipsandtricks.com was one of my first stops. The amount of information and the way it’s presented is extremely helpful for a noob like me, and there’s probably content that suits […]

What I’m Watching: Bamse’s Turbo Underpants

Bamse

When Bamse was asked what the difference was between normal underpants and turbo underpants, his response was “the skidmarks are bigger”. Who can argue with that? Despite these videos being in Finnish, there’s no subtitles needed for the amount of rev-limiter bashing, exhaust popping, tyre frying burnouts that you’ll see. These guys are very entertaining, […]

What I’m Watching: Tom’s Turbo Garage

TomsTurboGarage

I’ve been binge-watching this awesome channel lately, and it’s all about the wrenching activity of a very funny and informative gear-head called Tom (although his overalls go by a different name). He has uploaded numerous videos on his various project cars, including a Mazda MX5, Mitsubishi Galant VR4, and a Buick Grand National (all turbocharged, […]

What I’m Watching: You drive the Pagani Huayra

Marchettino

As I mentioned a few posts ago, I’ve really gotten into YouTube lately, so I figured I might as well share all the stuff that keeps me from being more productive I view in moderation. I’ve decided to start a new post topic called What I’m Watching, which will show what I’m currently viewing. Videos […]

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 […]

Austin Mini GT-Four [video build]

Binky

The folks at Bad Obsession Motorsport must have a bad obsession with building bonkers cars, because they’re putting together quite the ball-tearing package. They’re taking a Mini (or what’s left of it) and stuffing it full of running gear from a Toyota Celica GT-Four. Yes, that’s a 4 cylinder turbo with all wheel drive. What’s […]

Roadster Shop C-10 [video build]

9685935857_0d1fd7cfa4_b

One company I’ve loved following online for the past few years is Roadster Shop. In fact, I’ve featured a couple of their builds before, which you can view by clicking here. While cruising around the Pro Touring forums, which I like to do regularly, I noticed they were undertaking yet another new build. This time, […]

Project Hoonda – Turbo CBR900RR [video build]

145927925.Ov2zvyfK.IMG_9593

If you’ve been a reader of Build Threads since the beginning, then you might remember the BladeRod feature from back in 2009. It’s owner, Mark, the man behind the very entertaining automotive YouTube channel, HoonTV, is a bit of a CBR900 nutter, as he explains in detail in this video. One of the bikes from […]

Midmounted Mazda Minitruck [video build]

07

This following build was part of the teasers I placed in my “Best of 2010″ guest-post on Speedhunters last year. Out of the 5 teasers, I have only managed to do a follow-up feature one of them, The Widow Maker. Well, here’s number two! This minitruck is like no other I’ve seen. It might be […]
