BUILT from eBay [video build x4]

builtbyebay

So, I’ve become a bit of a YouTube junky lately. My almost nightly ritual consists of plonking myself down on the couch with a hot coffee, firing up the iPad, plugging in my over-ear headphones, and catching up on all of my favourite subscriptions. Some of those include /DRIVE, HoonTV, Jay Leno’s Garage, Marchettino, Mighty […]

Mercedes V8 Unimog

UniMog

Anyone else wondering what a Unimog is? If you are, like I was, I’ll do the Wiki-ing for you… The name Unimog is pronounced [ˈuːnɪmɔk] in German and is an acronym for the German“UNIversal-MOtor-Gerät”, Gerät being the German word for machine or device. The more you know, hey? This Mercedes Unimog (we can pretend we […]

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 […]

Retromod Toyota Tacoma

retrotacoma

Well here’s a first, I cant’ say I’ve ever featured an expedition truck before, nor have I read a build with the words “can be loaded safely in a 20-foot container with one or two NATO crates of supplies behind it”. The owner of this rig had gotten the most out of his trusty FJ […]

FMU BMW X5

FMU-X5

Confession: I’ve had a long-running man-crush on Fluid Motor Union ever since I first stumbled across their posts on the StanceWorks forums. Their famous flame-spitting Gallardo image is my Ps3 wallpaper, every day I look forward to their in-depth posts about the latest goings-on at the shop, and I constantly day-dream of sending my Datto […]

Jeep Buggy Racer

Jeep

On Friday, a reader by the name of Brad made a request on the Build-Threads Facebook page for a Jeep build. Not wanting to disappoint, I headed to my submissions list and fished out some Jeep links from long-time submitter, Cereal. This particular Jeep starts out with little more than a cab and a grille, […]

1:10 Hilux RC build

KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

This hand-made Hilux is the third scaled-down build I’ve featured here, but this one differs slightly from the others. While it’s still a 1:10 RC car, this one doesn’t limit itself to plastic materials and resin, the builder has gone to the extreme effort of making his own metal panels from hand-made wooden bucks. There’s […]

Nissan Patrol Duramax V8TT

PatrolDuramax

And now for something completely different, a twin-turbo Duramax powered Nissan Patrol 4wD built for street/strip duties, aiming for 1200rwhp and an 8.XX second ET…wanna read that again? This chassis has been through a few different incarnations during it’s lifetime before being torn down for its current rebuild, so it’s fair to say the owner has […]

’69 FJ40 Rock Crawler

P1180112

Keeping things off paved roads just like the last post, we’ll now turning our attention to an FJ40 Landcruiser build. Born out of necessity after his last FJ was written-off in an accident, Jon took the opportunity to build the dedicated rock-crawler that he’d always wanted, complete with LS1 power. This is a great build […]
