Mazzarini RT V6 – Custom Car Build

Mazzarini16

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 […]

4-Rotor Volvo 142

4-Rotor142

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)

LanciaDelta2JZ

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 […]

Peugeot 205 Hillclimber

Pug205Hillclimb

A few months ago I took a step forward in this little hobby of ours and bought myself a Mig welder. Since then I’ve made a few custom parts and brackets, added some new metal to my radiator support panel, and even helped a mate plug up some holes in his engine bay. I was […]

5 cylinder Audi powered Porsche 996

tube996

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 […]

Rolls Royce Silver Shadow

RR

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 […]

BMW E46 V8 Drift build

E46drift

I saw a video of this beastly creation a couple of weeks ago and the first thing that struck me about it was the appearance of the car without it’s rear bodywork. I love how the builder has almost created the car in a ute/pickup fashion, making the bodywork rear of the b-pillar detachable for […]

Fiat 126 Supercharged 1100cc

Fiat 126

This little Fiat had no idea what it was in for when it left the factory. Produced in Italy for 8 years and Poland for a staggering 27 years, this lucky example of a 126 was plucked from its mundane life of basic transportation and blessed with a second chance. The team at RetroPower stripped […]

School’s in! V12 Diablo replica

Lamborghini-BMW

Dave from Stance Is Everything must be the hardest working guy in the automotive blog network, every time I check his site there’s a bunch of new posts and updates, which is much more than I can say for myself! I remember reading an older post of his where he reminisced about the influence his […]

Bentley EXP Speed ​​8 replica

hero

One very dedicated Swedish builder has been spending the last 3 years creating his own Bentley Speed 8 replica. By taking a 1:18 scale model and having it scanned in 3D, he was able to recreate the body shape in full-size and drape it over a hand fabricated tube-frame chassis. With a 4.2lt Audi V8 […]
