Elvis’ BMW 507


Yep, that’s right, a BMW owned by the King himself! After starring in an exhibition, the lucky roadster finds itself at the hands of the team at BMW Classic, where it receives a full factory-fresh restoration documented with stunning photography. This has some similarities to the Official Porsche Restoration that I featured way back in […]

Screen Shot 2016-04-09 at 11.05.09 PM

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 […]

Fiat 850 Abarth Replica


There are some cars that just blast their way straight into the cockles of my heart. I’m not sure why, but they always tend to be old Fiats and Alfa Romeos, and if you add the word Abarth, you can bet it’s going to take the direct route. It might have something to do with this […]

Clarion Builds – BMW 2002


A little while back I received an email from a member of the Clarion Builds project about advertising on this very site (more info here if you’re interested). Well their first project car is now complete, and don’t I feel like an idiot for sleeping on this, especially when it was introduced to me at the project’s […]

’72 BMW E9 3.0 CSL restomod


After club racing his S54 powered 1979 e12 BMW for years, Brendan decided he’d like to try something a bit different. So with that in mind, he picked himself up an E9 to build into his vision of a resto-modded club racer. For powering duties, he chose a s38b36 straight-6 out of an E34 M5, and added other […]

Lotus Europa barn find restoration


I have this list of attainable vintage sports cars that I like to think I’ll be able to buy as mid-life crisis project, and the Lotus Europa is firmly planted on that list. Every time I see an article or post about these cars, I can’t help but read every word and obsess over every […]

Makela Ferrari 308 GTB Group 4


If you haven’t heard of Makela Auto Tuning before, allow me the honour of introducing you to the Finnish gods of auto restoration. They specialise in ex-Works rally and race cars, and like to document their work in galleries with hundreds (if not thousands!) of images. This isn’t the first time I’ve featured their work, […]

What I’m Watching: Jay’s Restorations in Progress

Aside from the many guests Jay has on his show, Jay Leno’s Garage, he also has a plethora of vehicles in various states of restoration. This ~22min video showcases some of the unfinished projects in the shop, perfect for people like us who want to see the bare bones more than the finished product.

1932 Ruxton Restoration


It looks like we have a few firsts, here. This just might be the oldest car to ever feature on, and most definitely the first Ruxton! In fact, I’d never heard of the manufacturer until I stumbled across this thread, so I did a quick Wiki to get up to speed. The fact that […]

1960 Aston Martin DB4GT ZAGATO

60db4_ (12) (999 x 666)

Well here’s another first, a car featured on Ebay, of all places. This isn’t a build thread as such, but there are some great behind the scenes build images of this gorgeous Aston Martin that I thought would be a shame to lose when the auction is over. I have re-posted all of the text […]
