1952 GMC 9700 Truck

A home-built ex fire truck, now fitted to a bagged S10 frame, powered by a 7.3L IDI International turbo diesel…this truck is cool as hell! Not to mention it gets driven hard over long distances. I’m not sure who submitted this, as it’s been sitting in my drafts for a while, but about 20 pages […]

What I’m Watching: Dirt Every Day

If you miss the old Roadkill (pre Dodge sponsorship days), then you’re going to love Dirt Every Day. While I’m not really into off-roading, I absolutely LOVE this channel. Fred is a down to earth guy who hosts his own series videos on the MotorTrend channel, which is why he’s allowed to poke fun at […]

Smokin’ Hare MK1 Rabbit

Forgive me, Church of Build Threads, for I have sinned. It has been less than twelve weeks since my last Mk1 Golf feature, but I cannot resist the temptation put yet another one on the site. I knew I was going to love this build from the first time I saw it, for the sole […]

Street-legal sculpture – ’63 Econoline

For this build you’ll need to take a step outside of the scene we’re all entrenched in, and see things from a different perspective. Shawn Hibmacronan isn’t your typical hardparking scene-kid, out to get a magazine cover and a tyre sponsorship, far from it. Shawn is an artist, and I’m talking about an actual artist […]

Nissan Patrol Duramax V8TT

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 […]

Twin Turbo Duramax Diesel Chevelle

I was reading about this car in Street Machine Magazine and I decided to do a bit of research to see if I could dig up some build pictures. Pacific Performance Engineering and Muscle Factory teamed up to customise a 1970 SS Chevelle by slotting in a 6.6L Duramax diesel V8 from a H1 Hummer […]
