Subaru Leone EJ22T AWD

Sure, you could buy yourself an STi Impreza, but where’s the fun in that? What about taking an all original, low-milage 1986 Subaru Leone, converted to AWD thanks to an XT6 (Vortex) donor, with an engine consisting of a built EJ22T bottom end and STi Version 8 Type RA heads? Yeah, I’d choose the Leone too. The […]

RB26 Alfa Romeo 147

Here’s one of my oldest drafts, it’s been gathering dust for many, many years. I pretty much convinced myself I’d never feature it, because the thread stopped receiving updates a long time ago. But I have a desire to purge all of my draft posts, and well, this one is just crazy enough to warrant […]

MK1 VW Caddy R32 4-Motion

Things have been quieter than usual around here and on Facebook/Twitter lately, and while I do apologise for that, I promise I have a good reason! My wife and I welcomed our first child into the world just over a week ago, so things have been understandably busy at home. But believe me when I […]

AWD Ford Fiesta Cosworth

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 […]

LX Torana 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 […]

Nissan GTR x Qashqai/Dualis

The Ferrari F40 LM Restoration was always going to be a hard act to follow, so you can imagine my dilemma in trying to find something suitable for the next post. In the end, I didn’t have to look very far, because the build came to me! Henri just emailed me this very interesting project, […]

Opel Corsa AWD

The humble little Opel Corsa (or Holden Barina in my country) was designed to be used as an affordable and efficient means of transport, nothing more, nothing less. But that doesn’t mean you can’t tear it apart and fit a turbo-charged AWD drivetrain from it’s bigger brother, the Calibra, which is exactly what this Swedish […]

LS1 996

1. Buy Porsche 996 with fire-damage. 2. Remove flat-6 engine. 3. Insert LS1. 4. ??? 5. Profit Get featured on Build Threads. Thanks to Raiss for submitting.

Eurowise AWD Mk1 GTI

I think I better feature this build just so people stop submitting it! Around 3 or 4 people have emailed me various links to this car in the last month, including one of the men behind it, Mike from Eurowise. Once you take a look at the images, you’ll see why it’s getting so much […]

Saab 99 Quattro

Sorry guys, I know I’ve been down on content lately, it’s a crazy time of year. But don’t worry, I’ve still got heaps of tasty builds lined up, so keep the faith! James, the editor of Car Throttle & owner of Saab Snaab emailed me this crazy Saab 99 build and told me a little […]
