Triumph TR6…or Z06?

TriumphZ06

Firstly, I feel I need to apologise for the amount of LSx builds on the front page, as I generally like to aim for a bit of variety on the site. But hey, if people keep stuffing them into cars in interesting ways, I have to keep featuring them! This one is a bit more […]

Datsun 411 / MX5

MX411

We need people like Bob. People with vision, people who have skills and love putting them to good use, people who have the itch to continue creating cool cars, time and time again. You might remember Bob from one of his previous projects that also graced these pages, the MX520. It seems that stuffing Mazda […]

Project Speedster MX5

14

Here’s another build I’ve had my eye on for a while which was recently completed. Like most people these days, I’m a fan of appropriately modified Mazda MX5‘s. But being such a popular platform, it becomes harder to get one to stand out from the sea of Roadsters, without ending up with an over-modded abomination. […]

LS3 NC MX5

LS3NCMX5

In the past I’ve seen plenty of pictures of NA MX5′s with their windscreens chopped off, hurling around a race track with a minimal amount of metal left on the car in the interests of faster lap times. But I have to say, this would be the first time I’ve seen the same treatment being […]

Recently I created a new post tag called “People who get it”, for those occasions where an owner or builder will put extra effort into their threads to make for an enjoyable and informative read. But where to from there? Is that as good as it gets? Is it possible to take it a step […]

Oh, you like Datsuns?

Roadsters

Spriso Motorsports are truly living the Datsun life, now being in the game for over 10 years churning out nostalgic drop-top rides with modern Nissan running gear. Leigh, the man behind the Spriso website, emailed me to let me know that the team have documented 7 of their Datsun Roadster builds online. I love companies […]

Sharka NA Miata v2.0

hero

From the ashes of a past flame rises a new love. Adam’s pride and joy was a ’97 Miata that met its maker after being rammed up the backside by an inconsiderate truck on the freeway. Instead of packing up and going home, a stock ’95 was purchased with the promise of rebuilding the vision […]
