LX Torana GTR

LX GTR

If you’re an Aussie, like I am, then you’d be well versed in the Holden vs Ford debate, even if you don’t fancy either marquee, it’s an argument with no expiry date. Almost as well known as this red and blue rivalry is the tale of the Nissan Skyline GTR dominating the touring car races of […]

Retromod Toyota Tacoma

retrotacoma

Well here’s a first, I cant’ say I’ve ever featured an expedition truck before, nor have I read a build with the words “can be loaded safely in a 20-foot container with one or two NATO crates of supplies behind it”. The owner of this rig had gotten the most out of his trusty FJ […]

FMU BMW X5

FMU-X5

Confession: I’ve had a long-running man-crush on Fluid Motor Union ever since I first stumbled across their posts on the StanceWorks forums. Their famous flame-spitting Gallardo image is my Ps3 wallpaper, every day I look forward to their in-depth posts about the latest goings-on at the shop, and I constantly day-dream of sending my Datto […]

Jeep

On Friday, a reader by the name of Brad made a request on the Build-Threads Facebook page for a Jeep build.

There’s […]

Nissan Patrol Duramax V8TT

PatrolDuramax

And now for something completely different, a twin-turbo Duramax powered Nissan Patrol 4wD built for street/strip duties, aiming for 1200rwhp and an 8.XX second ET…wanna read that again? This chassis has been through a few different incarnations during it’s lifetime before being torn down for its current rebuild, so it’s fair to say the owner has […]

P1180112

Keeping things off paved roads just like the last post, we’ll now turning our attention to an FJ40 Landcruiser build. Born out of necessity after his last FJ was written-off in an accident, Jon took the opportunity to build the dedicated rock-crawler that he’d always wanted, complete with LS1 power. This is a great build […]

Whilst doing my daily statistics check on the blog, I noticed i was getting clicks from Performance Forums. When I followed the link I was greeted by a thread loaded with some of the member’s favourite builds, and the following feature is one of them. Desert Racing is a big-dollar sport, and the no-expense spared […]

The owner of this car said his goal was to build “A supercharged, streetable copy of the awesome Donahoe Baja champion FJ that I can still take the family in.”
