Grey Ghost – ’69 Porsche 911

Never underestimate the power of the internet! A short while back, I sent some Build-Threads stickers over to one of my favourite YouTubers, Home Built By Jeff for his mailbag segment (here’s a screenshot). One of Jeff’s viewers, Michael, was watching that very episode and decided to get in touch to show me his own project, this very sorted […]

12 Gauge Garage Video + the current state of YouTube

There seems to be a new trend on Youtube of people ripping off every image from a build thread (many of which are plucked from this site along with my post introductions) and uploading them as a slide-show in their entirety. They are generating thousands of views and reaping advertising dollars from other people’s hard work without so […]

Home Built by Jeff – Porsche 911 [video build]

Meet Jeff. Jeff is just a regular Aussie bloke; a guy who wants to tinker with cars in his shed and share his progress with whoever wants to see it. I don’t know his work background but he seems to be the kind of guy who can do a bit of everything, and he’s giving it a red hot go […]

993 RSR coupe UPDATE

I love hearing from owners of previously featured cars, especially when they tell me about how people ask them about their car after seeing it on Build-Threads.com. Very recently I heard from Petter, the owner of the extremely bright green 993 that started it’s life as a Targa. With the car now complete I thought […]

“If only you were nearer” – a road trip tale

If you’re a long-term reader of the site, the name Mystery Machine might ring a bell. I’ve covered a variety of Bruce’s exploits over the years, starting with his Teenage Dirtbag MX5, then the Area 52 communal garage space, and finally a general look at some other projects he was working on. Bruce has been a […]

GT3 powered Porsche 962 replica

In much the same vein as the recently updated Bentley EXP Speed 8 and BMW M1 replica builds, we have another 2-seat endurance racing type vehicle being hand built by an enthusiast putting their own spin on things. This one starts with a blank canvas composite body and a drive-train donated from a 997 GT3, […]

Porsche 911 V8 RSR

You have to give it to Hal, he sure is sticking it to the man! Not only does he shove a V8 into the rear of his Porsche, he actually cuts up his own fenders and fits his own wide body kit without having to fly someone half way around the world to do it […]

What I’m Watching: Jeff Zwart – Pikes Peak 2015

No introduction necessary, just turn your speakers up and enjoy…

A tale of two 911s

Do you remember when I made the ‘people who get it‘ post tag? I created it so I could tag the best quality builds, the one’s that you never want to end, the ones that make you go back to the beginning once you reach the last page. Kris is a perpetual offender of such […]

BUILT from eBay [video build x4]

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 […]
