Porsche’s seem to be blowing up the internet lately. Between RWB, Singer, and most recently Magnus Walker, there’s been a constant stream Porkas on every auto blog out there for the past few years now. But hey, this is Build Threads, so you know if you see a Porsche here there’s going to be something [...]
Petri from www.pjp.fi in Finland emailed me this very interesting Rolls Royce build, not your typical cheuffurre driven Silver Shadow. I’ll let Petri explain… car is coming to have all chromemoly sfi 25,2 double frame chassi with four seats (am not kidding we must give our sponsors a ride) . Engine is Oldsmobile 462 cid with Mooneyhamn 14/71 [...]
So, the last RX7 I posted was devoid of a rotary engine, so here’s another one that keeps it’s Wankel roots, but with a twist. If you love engineering, machining, welding, lathes, heat treatments, stress analysis, and 3D renders, then you’re going to love this completely custom made 4-rotor powerplant. Definitely one for the tech-heads [...]
I love posting updates to previously featured projects, but it’s always a bittersweet moment as it usually means there’ll be no more progress pictures to enjoy. But hey, cars are built to be driven and bikes are built to be ridden, so we should rejoice when a build reaches it’s final destination. I posted this [...]

But that doesn’t mean you can’t tear it apart and fit a turbo-charged AWD drivetrain from it’s bigger brother, the Calibra, which is exactly what this Swedish [...]
Fredrik, from the build-thread-rich forum known as Zatzy, emailed me his project late last year. A Volvo 480 is a car I’ve never seen or heard of before, but after learning that this specific car was converted from FWD to RWD with a B234 engine and BMW ZF gearbox, I was more than interested. For [...]
From the same forum that brought you the Viper powered Saab 93 Wagon comes another frankenstein build. Function-over-form readers will be pleased to notice the absence hectic stance, bags vs static arguments, ground clearance measurements or rusted body panels. This Golf is different…very different. I’ve featured a few MKIII Golfs before, each with their own [...]
When I look back at the 4 BMW E30s I’ve featured on the site in the past, it’s interesting to see that only one of them retained it’s original motor. The other three were powered by an RB26DETT, an E39 M5 V8, and an E60 M5 V10. So that means we’ve had 4 cylinder, 6 [...]
Yes you read that right, an Alfa Romeo Hot Rod. Who would be crazy enough to put something like this together? The Swedes of course! Thanks to Mikael for submitting. .
