A Fabricator’s Project – Audi A4


Let me start out by saying this build is not yet complete, but the quality levels are through the roof, and as usual you can expect updates to be posted when it’s further along. For now, though, I’ll think you’ll be as gobsmacked as I was when I first saw the 3D scanning, CAD work, […]

Zakspeed MkII Escort AWD


I’ve featured a few Escorts over the years, along with one other Zakspeed inspired MKII, but none of them were converted to AWD! The car uses a Ford Sierra front and rear clip welded onto the Escort’s center section to allow the AWD drivetrain to bolt up. The thread takes a retrospective view of the […]

Ford Falcon XR6 Turbo Ute – Part 1


The folks at Nulon and Impossible Fabrications are back with another hybrid creation. If you remember the EG Civic they built a while back, you’ll know they’re no stranger to an angle grinder and welder. That little Civic is now both rear wheel drive and turbo, or basically what you could call an S15 200sx […]

Ford Super Duty F350


Big-body truck builds interest me because it’s not something we see much of here in Australia. Our most popular trucks are what would be considered medium sized in the US, such as Toyota Hilux and Ford Ranger. In fact I think I’ve only ever seen one Raptor with my own eyes, a personal import. So […]

What I’m Watching: Dirt Every Day

If you miss the old Roadkill (pre Dodge sponsorship days), then you’re going to love Dirt Every Day. While I’m not really into off-roading, I absolutely LOVE this channel. Fred is a down to earth guy who hosts his own series videos on the MotorTrend channel, which is why he’s allowed to poke fun at […]

Vauxhall-powered Turbo Mini


Can’t wait for your Project Binky fix? Well it’s not the only Mini build out there! A talented chap emailed me his build at the start of the year, and I’ve only just had a chance to have a proper read of it, and boy am I feeling stupid for waiting so long! The car […]
