Holden HR Ute – Pro Street build

This next build was found via Instagram of all places. I noticed a new follower pop up in my feed, clicked on his profile and I was greeted with images of this Pro Street ute build. After a few comments back-and-forth I located the build thread online and now I want to share it with […]

Rolls Royce Silver Shadow

Petri from www.pjp.fi in Finland emailed me this very interesting Rolls Royce build, not your typical cheuffurre driven Silver Shadow. I’ll let Petri explain… car is coming to have all chromemoly sfi 25,2 double frame chassi with four seats (am not kidding we must give our sponsors a ride) . Engine is Oldsmobile 462 cid with Mooneyhamn 14/71 […]

Toyota Supra – Complete Rebuild

I’m not sure where I sit with this one, I’ve heard about it many times over the years and have read the entire thread myself, but I’m kind of on the fence about it. On one hand, it’s great to see someone so thorough in their quest for modification perfection, sparing no expense in a […]

Twins Turbo Motorsports Viper

Many of you have probably seen this incredible car before on the pages of Speedhunters, where the team documented some of the build and shared top-notch desktops of the finished product. Recently, Build-Threads reader Geoff emailed me a link to a full gallery of the build hosted on the workshops own website, so I thought […]

Red Victor 3 – Vauxhall VX4/90 FD

I haven’t featured many drag cars in comparison to other build styles on this site, but Slinky from Red Victor 1 Racing over in the UK sent me the teams latest build and I knew it deserved a post. This style of drag car is usually the domain of American builders who focus their attention […]

Drag-spec Datsun 510 Coupe

I just saw this link get posted on Ratsun a moment ago and knew I had to tee it up for a feature. A Datsun 510/Bluebird coupe gets the full drag treatment over in Japan, with a tube frame chassis, massive slicks taking up the whole rear end, and a potent straight 6 L-series finished […]

TA22 2JZ

Karey emailed me his tough as nails TA22 Celica, powered by one of Toyota’s best, the mighty 2JZ. Built in true drag racing fashion, it features all the trademarks of a straight-line racer, like a tubbed rear end with 4-link, Weld Racing wheels, and a Ford 9″ diff, textbook stuff. It looks like the car […]

Nostalgic Dragster Rebuild

Chris, a fellow Aussie & VW enthusiast, emailed me this build a while ago. It’s the restoration of a late 60’s/early 70’s front engine dragster being rebuilt at his fathers workshop. Chris tells me that in the drag racing community this is known as a “Cackle Car”, a car which although not competitively raced, is […]
