AWD Ford Fiesta Cosworth

JWRC Fiesta

It’s been a while since we’ve had one of these completely bonkers builds. You know the type; pedestrian fwd hatch, completely gutted, filled with a skeleton of tubing, a north/south facing engine conversion, race-quality suspension and a change of driveline orientation? Yeah, one of those! While I could make up some story about how this […]

Mustegra – DC2 Integra / 96 Mustang

Mustegra

This build doesn’t start off with a bare shell, a neglected car found under a tree, or even anything remotely standard, it actually starts off with a Honda Integra that had already been featured in a magazine. So how can a build start off with an already complete car? Well, because the guts of the […]

Fabricated Ford F150

F150

What is it about off-road guys that makes them churn out pr0n-quality fabrication? Is it the fact that their parts need to endure high levels of abuse, or do they just like leaving the rest of us in awe? I could just post a bunch of welding pics from this thread without actually showing the […]

Street-legal sculpture – ’63 Econoline

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

For this build you’ll need to take a step outside of the scene we’re all entrenched in, and see things from a different perspective. Shawn Hibmacronan isn’t your typical hardparking scene-kid, out to get a magazine cover and a tyre sponsorship, far from it. Shawn is an artist, and I’m talking about an actual artist […]

Mach 40 Mustang/GT

Mach40

Buried inside one of the many great 2012 SEMA posts on Speedhunters was this highly customised Ford Mustang, a car that some might dismiss at first glance. Actually, calling it a Mustang is probably a bit of a stretch, because this extreme 1-off build is actually based on a rear-engined 2006 Ford GT, with the […]

Group 2 Zakspeed Mk2 Escort

mk2zakspeed

Yep, another classic British Ford, seems to be the flavour lately. This one is a MK2 Escort, taken from a granny-spec stocker all the way to a fabricated and widened twin-cam track tearer. I really like how far they’ve developed and modified the factory floorpan instead of simply ripping it all out and replacing it […]

Ford Popular 100E

FordPopular

This Ford Popular build comes courtesy of Joe, the owner and builder who first bought this car almost 15 years ago. This little British sedan goes from stock standard to show quality, landing itself a feature in Retro Ford Magazine and placing 3rd in their 2011 Car of the Year, as voted by readers.

Niscort – MK1 Escort CA18DET

09

Many years ago I remember seeing what I still think is one of the best looking CA18DET’s ever put together. It was posted on a forum, and I liked it so much I pm’d the person who’d posted the image. That CA18DET wasn’t bound for the usual S13 Nissan or Datsun 1200 ute, it was […]

4-cylinder Turbo ’68 Mustang

4cylMustang

Wait…what? Yep, a 1968 Ford Mustang on any automotive website (or magazine for that matter) would have you assuming that a stove-hot V8 would be hiding under the bonnet, and 99% of the time you’d be right. When Beau submitted me his ’68 Stang, he pointed me to a certain page on his build thread, […]

Scratch-built 1:25 scale XE Ford Falcon

13 Falcon

Skill and patience, that’s all I have to say about this build. The mastermind behind this completely custom-made 1:25 scale model has bucket-loads of both, and puts it all to good use, recreating the car he was carted around in as a kid. It looks like we have something in common, as my parents used […]
