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 […]

51bc4e6ec61a94c82ee4eb0aa93c4659

Hailing from Bristol in the UK, this unorthodox drift car starts out as a Mk1 Ford Escort estate. Soon enough the guts of the car are unceremoniously removed and everything that goes back in is custom built by a very talented owner/builder.

Hot Rod Archeology – 1955 Ford pickup

12

More story-time than all-out build, this post revolves around a keen youngster from Norway who lives in US and has a deep love of hot rods and customs. A stolen daily driver leads him to Craigslist for a replacement, where he finds an ad for what looks like a well-worn farm truck, but turns out […]
