Pro Pontiac Pro-Touring Firebird


This build has been sitting in my drafts folder for two years, TWO WHOLE YEARS! I’m always fighting with myself over posting builds before they’re complete, but this one is just too good to sit on, so I figured it was finally time (plus I like posting follow-ups on popular builds as they evolve). This […]

Volvo 242 with BMW V10 Power


I love how Volvos are the domestic “do it all” cars of the Scandinavian region. They get pulled apart and re-built in a host of different ways that the rest of the world would never dare. This 242 begins it’s build thread with a BMW v10 already nestled in the engine bay, and things only […]

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, […]

Mazzarini RT V6 – Custom Car Build


I feel as though I’ve been moving away from the original intentions of this website, and that is linking you to interesting builds from around the world. What I mean by that is, I think the site-hosted builds like the Ferrari F40, Honda City Turbo II, EG Civic/S15 Silvia, and my own garage build have […]

Porsche ’83 targa to 993 RSR coupe


When I was a kid, Porsches were only owned by doctors or business men, or plastered on bedroom walls of kids like me. Now it’s more than obvious that the once unreachable German exotics are firmly in the grasps of people like you and I who like to tear things apart and put them back […]

Jet-powered land-speed motorbike


Just when I think I’ve seen it all, when I think I can’t possibly be surprised at what pops up in my inbox, along comes Anders with his gas-turbined powered motorbike. When I actually figured out what I was looking at, all I could do is sit back and laugh in amazement. I consider myself […]

W12 powered VW Fridolin


What is this I don’t even? Apparently the VW Fridolin was designed as a postal service car, something I never knew (thank you Wikipedia). Somehow I think this particular one’s mail hauling days are over, especially considering it’s W12 (yes, W-freaking-twelve!) power-plant and Touareg rear end. Thanks to Henning for submitting.

4-Rotor Volvo 142


Those crazy Swedes! I don’t think I’ve ever featured a build from the Nordic region that hasn’t been absolutely bonkers. This time it’s a Volvo 142 that has received a hand built custom chassis beneath a gutted floor pan, with a minor engine upgrade to go with it. Wait, did I say ‘minor’? I meant […]

Lancia Delta Evo1 – Part 2(JZ)


Remember this Lancia Delta I featured back in November 2009? No? Well, that’s okay, because I didn’t either! The build was submitted to me very recently, so after assessing it I started the usual process of putting the post together. It actually took me about 10 or so pages before the build started to look […]
