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 […]

No introduction necessary, just turn your speakers up and enjoy…

1962 Ford Falcon 2.3 Turbo


One of the drawbacks of running this site is that I don’t really get to enjoy reading builds as much as I used to. Before I started in 2009, I would have my bookmarks filled with build threads of all types, to enjoy at my own leisure. These days, I have you guys to […]

What I’m Watching: TTG Project Thunderbolt

If you’ve been following my What I’m Watching series since the beginning, you would have already seen me post about Tom’s Turbo Garage once before. Still, I thought I should inform you about his latest project, and one that I’m very excited about, Project Thunderbolt! Tom has bought himself a Mazdaspeed NB MX5/Miata and is […]

Project Ugly Horse


Another Mustang?! Well, yes, but this one’s a little different. Actually, it’s a lot different, because there’s no bent-8 to be seen in the propulsion department. Project Ugly Horse is a build I’ve stumbled across more than once, and found myself re-visiting it enough times that I realised I should probably put it up on […]

Ferrari F40 LM Restoration Part 5


We’re pretty much at the business-end of the F40 LM restoration now. The body is buttoned up, fuel is flowing through the lines, and the turbos are spooling. Click below to see it take shape, including a couple of videos and a sneak peek at an EVO Magazine photoshoot. We are now up to date […]

With the engine now bolted firmly in place, there’s only one thing left to do, start ‘er up and go for a spin! Well, actually, there’s a few things left to do, but you’ll just have to read all about it in the post below… Previous posts: Part 1: Introduction Part 2: Teardown Part 3: […]

Ferrari F40 LM Restoration Part 4


Part 4 of the drool-enducing F40 LM restoration is here, and we are so, so close to seeing it that sweet twin turbo V8 being brought to life. I’m trying to update this thread more regularly than I used to, so hopefully I can get part 5 done in the not too distant future. Click […]
