VQ35-powered Mk1 Escort drifter

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. The finishing touch is the ex-350Z V6 that finds itself in front of the […]

Revisiting the ETS Drift Ute

Book097-1024x683

Engineered To Slide; there’s a good chance you already follow Nigel’s blog and know all about his impressive two and four wheeled projects, both past and present. When I first started this blog, I launched it with a handful of builds already published from the get-go, and one of those was the ETS S13 Silvia, […]

EG Civic / S15 Silvia – Stage 1 Complete

10516869_1612800895602478_6814880867063361006_n

It’s been almost a year since we caught up with the Impossible Fabrications / Nulon EG Civic crossed with an S15 Silvia. The good news is, this little beast is now considered complete as far as stage one goes, and has been tearing up the streets and the track, turning rear tyres to dust. Now the team […]

RB26 Alfa Romeo 147

Here’s one of my oldest drafts, it’s been gathering dust for many, many years. I pretty much convinced myself I’d never feature it, because the thread stopped receiving updates a long time ago. But I have a desire to purge all of my draft posts, and well, this one is just crazy enough to warrant […]

Broadfield S14 Cluster Build

img_0981

Waaay back in 2010 (geez this blog is old!) I featured a little exposé on an automotive artisan called Toby Broadfield. I’ve been visiting Toby’s blog on-and-off since around that time, always in awe of his attention to detail when cutting up and re-shaping interior pieces. Now that I’m getting closer to overhauling my own […]

Project 510: Random Snaps

The Datsun is now resting in it’s new home, and having easy access to it means it’s been hitting the road a bit more lately. Look forward to an update soon with some new mods. Click for larger versions, and please link back to the site if you would like to share these images.

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

civ4

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 / […]
