What I’m Watching: Driftworks – How to Build a Crazy Drift Car

Driftworks is one of many companies who have stepped up their vlogging game in 2017, giving us a glimpse into not only their fleet and products, but the personalities behind them. Just over a week ago, the guys released a great video of the team looking back over the build of their ASCAR-based AE86 drift car, […]

K-swapped EK Civic [video build]

I’ve been a long-time fan/follower of Pete and Dave from Speed Academy, two very entertaining Canadians with a knack for building fast cars (and building them the right way!). This video series centers around completely transforming a family members car from a very tired econo-box into a track-ready fun-machine. My favourite part (apart from all […]

What I’m Watching: The Iso Rivolta Chronicles

Late last year I was contacted by the team at An Italian Garage to inform me about their amazing project that was in production, and now it’s finally time to share it with you. It’s a series of short documentaries focusing on Italian classic car brands, with each season concentrating on a single brand. Season 1’s subject […]

What I’m Watching: Alfa Romeo 155 DTM

Davide Cironi, an Italian Youtuber who seems to get his hands on a whole assortment of desirable cars, get’s the chance to drive an Alfa Romeo 155 DTM in anger. What an opportunity! The man certainly has a way with words, and even though those words are in Italian, the subtitles get the point across just fine. […]

12 Gauge Garage Video + the current state of YouTube

There seems to be a new trend on Youtube of people ripping off every image from a build thread (many of which are plucked from this site along with my post introductions) and uploading them as a slide-show in their entirety. They are generating thousands of views and reaping advertising dollars from other people’s hard work without so […]

What I’m Watching: Pneuma Chris (Subaru content)

Whilst doing one of my usual lurking sessions on Retro Rides, I stumbled upon a thread about a Subaru Brumby (Brat). I thought the car looked pretty cool, and then noticed the thread author dropping some links to his YouTube videos. Once I found my way around his channel, I really liked what I saw […]

Builder Spotlight – It’s Ben Modified [videos]

Hailing from our very own Build Threads Communal Garage is a very creative chap who runs a channel called It’s Ben Modified. The ‘about’ page says “Anything with Wheels and a Motor”, and to be honest I can’t think of a better way to describe the types of automobiles being pieced together in this shop. […]

What I’m Watching: ETS Garage Tour

If you’ve been reading Build-Threads.com for a while, you’d know I’m a huge fan of Nigel Petrie from Engineered to Slide. In fact, one of the first posts I ever published on this site was about his S13 (that is now in the midst of a track-focused re-build). In this new video, Nigel takes us on […]

What I’m Watching: Raising Junior

One thing I like more than watching car content on YouTube, is watching Build Threads readers output their own car content on YouTube! Geoffrey contacted me recently to share his newly started channel with me. He’s about to undertake a huge restoration of an Alfa Romeo GT Junior 1300. It’s a big job, but he’s got […]

What I’m Watching: Salt City Euros

The latest channel to be added to my list of subscriptions is Salt City Euros. These young dudes by the name of Nico and Max have a penchant for E30 BMWs and some serious skills in the filming and editing departments. I’m looking forward to following the progress on their projects, especially the wagon! Salt […]
