If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, you would have seen me post about Mike at least a few times. Mike is the owner of the 1UZ Supra (along with the world’s most insane welding cart) that I featured back in 2013, a car that belongs to what I call the best build thread […]

Mini Clubman Estate / Mazda MX5

05

Mini Estates must be destined for greatness, I’ve featured two previously (here and here) and they’re all just a little bit nuts. This one is no different, with rusted out shell as a starting point, and a not-so rusted MX5 brought into the mix, the two were combined in yet another fantastic Miata-based chassis-swap. Thanks […]

A Fabricator’s Project – Audi A4

20151109_171310

Let me start out by saying this build is not yet complete, but the quality levels are through the roof, and as usual you can expect updates to be posted when it’s further along. For now, though, I’ll think you’ll be as gobsmacked as I was when I first saw the 3D scanning, CAD work, […]

Zakspeed MkII Escort AWD

15

I’ve featured a few Escorts over the years, along with one other Zakspeed inspired MKII, but none of them were converted to AWD! The car uses a Ford Sierra front and rear clip welded onto the Escort’s center section to allow the AWD drivetrain to bolt up. The thread takes a retrospective view of the […]

Ford Falcon XR6 Turbo Ute – Part 1

The folks at Nulon and Impossible Fabrications are back with another hybrid creation. If you remember the EG Civic they built a while back, you’ll know they’re no stranger to an angle grinder and welder. That little Civic is now both rear wheel drive and turbo, or basically what you could call an S15 200sx […]

1962 Volksrod

IMG_3058_zpsimbm8s8i

I love a good Volksrod, and if previous posts are anything to go by, so do most of you! Each of the well-modified Beetles I’ve featured have always done well with readers and generated plenty of track-back links to the article. This particular one was only submitted to me very recently, but when I saw […]
