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 […]

Forum spotlight: JDMST (pt1)

jdmst1

I’m a member of many different forums, but I’m not much of a poster. JDM Style Tuning was one of the first forums that I really got involved in, posting regularly and attending meets. While I don’t post there much these days, I still like to read the forum almost daily and make the odd […]

A very thorough ground-up restoration of a very rare car, a 1970 Subaru FF-1. Enjoy. Thanks to Stephen for submitting.

Datsun 240z: Projekt Hugo

Hugo240

From the dark depths of build thread history comes Projekt Hugo. Does anyone remember this video series about a guy from Sweden who imported a supposedly “rust free” 240z from the US, only to find it littered with rotted metal? He then proceeded to rebuild the car whilst documenting the whole thing on well-edited videos. […]

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 […]

Toyota Supra – Complete Rebuild

Supra

I’m not sure where I sit with this one, I’ve heard about it many times over the years and have read the entire thread myself, but I’m kind of on the fence about it. On one hand, it’s great to see someone so thorough in their quest for modification perfection, sparing no expense in a […]

Mini Pickup Restoration

Mini-Pickup

With so many out-there projects and engine swaps being featured lately, I thought it would be a nice change of pace to feature a good old fashioned restoration. Jon emailed me his very thorough re-build of a classic 1977 Mini pickup. What I love about this build is that Jon built the car to be […]

Official Porsche Restoration Update II

PorscheResto

A few days ago marked exactly 1 year since I posted an update about the Official Porsche Restoration. The factory rebuild of a 1973 911T has now been completed by the Porsche Classic workshop and raffled off to one lucky winner, so check out the finishing touches or re-live the whole build if you so […]

1953 Chevy Pickup

Ferndale-53-Chevy

An enthusiastic car fan drags his grandfather’s old work truck from his uncles farm in very poor condition, with the intention of restoring it to it’s former state, prior to it’s neglect. Nothing unusual about that, we’ve certainly heard similar stories before, but you don’t usually hear about a job like this being undertaken by […]

Mitsubishi360

This next project belongs to Build Threads reader, David, who resides in Nagoya, Japan. David decided to restore one of the more obscure cars previously available to the Japanese domestic market, a Mitsubishi 360. After saving it from the clutches of mother nature, he set about restoring the nostalgic kei car one step at a […]
