Firebug Subaru 360

10

It’s time for another memory test. Who remembers the rear-engine V6-swapped Geo Metro Lemons racer that was featured almost 5 years ago? Well, the same guys are back again with a new death trap, this time a Subaru 360 micro-car packing a Honda Fireblade bike engine (sadly no longer eligible due to new rules implemented […]

Honda NSX Track Car

NSX-track

It’s time to kick off 2016 with a new build! The Honda NSX is a bucket-list car for many people, whether you’re a Honda fanboy, a lover of 90′s JDM, or maybe you have a case of the feels from the original Need for Speed game. This one takes quite the transformation, starting off as […]

Subaru Impreza 5.0 RWD

17

Let’s take it waaaay back to the start of 2011 (that’s over four and half years ago, wow!). That’s when, at the end of my Speedhunters guest post, I posted a teaser image of an upcoming build. That image was a GC Impreza with an SR20 sitting neatly between the strut towers. Rob is the […]

What I’m Watching: The Fabricator channel

It’s like someone went and made a channel specifically for us! So far the series has videos detailing how to make a time attack roll cage and a tube frame front end, amongst other various fabrication topics. The complete Part 1 instalment of the tube frame front end video looks to be a paid video, […]

Pro Pontiac Pro-Touring Firebird

19ProPontiac

This build has been sitting in my drafts folder for two years, TWO WHOLE YEARS! I’m always fighting with myself over posting builds before they’re complete, but this one is just too good to sit on, so I figured it was finally time (plus I like posting follow-ups on popular builds as they evolve). This […]

Honda N600 – VFR800 swap!

n600

This build came to my attention via it’s eBay auction, of all places. A friend linked it to me and within the description was a build thread link. Now who of us here would be stupid enough to NOT click that link? What I found was an obscure little 70′s Honda whose body shape I […]

Triumph GT6 with Jaguar V12 power

GT12

Here’s some real home-grown fabrication for you. A V12 converted to twin 4-barrel carbs, shortened Jaguar rear end, BMW front end, endless amounts of body work, chassis fabrication, flat floor and wooden bucks to custom make sheet-metal panels. This is backyard ingenuity at it’s best. Edit: I should probably mention that the thread is over […]

Lotus Europa barn find restoration

lotuseuropa

I have this list of attainable vintage sports cars that I like to think I’ll be able to buy as mid-life crisis project, and the Lotus Europa is firmly planted on that list. Every time I see an article or post about these cars, I can’t help but read every word and obsess over every […]

Vauxhall-powered Turbo Mini

XE-Mini

Can’t wait for your Project Binky fix? Well it’s not the only Mini build out there! A talented chap emailed me his build at the start of the year, and I’ve only just had a chance to have a proper read of it, and boy am I feeling stupid for waiting so long! The car […]

MK1 VW Caddy R32 4-Motion

IMG_6307_zpsa0e88870

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 […]
