Project Thunderbolt LS3 Miata [video build]

TTG

If you’ve been following my “What I’m Watching” series, you would have seen me post about Tom’s Turbo Garage on more than one occasion, including this very project I’m about to share with you again. What can I say? I love Tom’s work, his videos are enjoyable, informative, and funny, not to mention he’s great […]

Project Ugly Horse

10UglyHorse

Another Mustang?! Well, yes, but this one’s a little different. Actually, it’s a lot different, because there’s no bent-8 to be seen in the propulsion department. Project Ugly Horse is a build I’ve stumbled across more than once, and found myself re-visiting it enough times that I realised I should probably put it up on […]

What I’m Watching: Giant Killer 510

Yes, I’m biased towards Datsuns (and especially 510s), but what did you expect!? Build Threads Discussion Group member John recently posted up this video that was created about his F20C 510 build. It’s a great piece that gives you an insight into not only the build of the car, but the owner, too, which is […]

We’re already up to Part 5 of the Impossible Fabrications / Nulon EG Civic build. In this installment we start at the back of the car to see the rear suspension framework finalised, and an alloy fuel tank fabricated. Then we work our way along the tailshaft and custom transmission tunnel, before heading to the […]

EG Civic / S15 Silvia – Rear suspension & driveline

The guys at Impossible Fabrications are absolutely rocketing along with the Nulon EG Civic build, I can barely keep up! In part 3, we saw the SR20DET inserted into the engine bay, using the S15 front suspension, crossmember and strut towers. Now it’s the rear of the car getting some very similar attention… Click here […]

EG Civic / S15 Silvia – Engine installed!

Nulon-Civic

Part 3 of the Nulon / Impossible Fabrications EG Civic is already here! In this update, we see the S15 SR20DET engine and gearbox find their way home. Of course they were always going to fit perfectly, because this particular little Honda already has a full S15 front end, which we saw installed in Part […]

Here is Part 2 of the EG Civic / S15 Silvia build, which concentrates on the team at Impossible Fabrications ripping out the standard engine and front end, to replace it with the underpinnings from the S15. This is turning out to be almost factory looking! Read on… Click here for Part 1. Impossible Fabricaions / […]

Not long ago I posted a link on the Facebook page about this very interesting project from Sydney, Australia. I’ve since been asked by the owner, Christopher, if I would like to re-post the progress of the build on Build-Threads.com, to which I happily obliged. So here is part 1, which gives you a nice […]

’69 Karmann Ghia, powered by Subaru.

This feature has been a long time coming, and to be honest I’m not sure why I didn’t do it sooner. You see, Mike is one of the few people that liked to share updates of his build on the Build Threads Facebook page, and every time he’d post an image, readers would love it. […]

Triumph TR6…or Z06?

TriumphZ06

Firstly, I feel I need to apologise for the amount of LSx builds on the front page, as I generally like to aim for a bit of variety on the site. But hey, if people keep stuffing them into cars in interesting ways, I have to keep featuring them! This one is a bit more […]
