J-ROD ’67 Chevy Nova

Nova

Every time I hear “Chevy Nova”, all I can think of is “I remember you used to drive that crappy blue Chevy Nova. What are you driving now?”…”Same crappy blue Chevy Nova”. Now, if you’re a bit younger than me, you might need to look that one up! The Nova in this feature is not […]

Ferrari F40 LM Restoration Part 4

1887369d1400261272-f40-lm-restoration-overhead-shot-140514-017-copy-3-_edited-1

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 […]

1976 International Scout Traveler

Traveler

Even though I’m not into off-roading myself, I really enjoy reading builds from this dirt-loving subculture. Reason being is that I get to see the same metal-working techniques being implemented for a different purpose, it’s just interesting to see the similarities and differences. High instead of low, mud instead of asphalt, dirt instead of shine, […]

Ferrari F40 LM Restoration Part 3

1808179d1385733327-f40-lm-restoration-dsc_5475s

I really wanted to keep the Ferrari F40 LM Restoration in one large post, however it was proving too large to handle. For this latest update, I’ve decided to create a separate post. I’ve also split the original post into two parts, just to make it easier on everyone’s bandwidth, including mine! You can access […]

Renault Espace / Lexus LS400

Espace

When people think Renault Espace, they either think of it in it’s basic form as a vanilla people mover, or, if they’re anything like you and I, they think of the completely insane F1 version. But what if modifying one wasn’t left to the devices of a motorsports company, what if a car guy got […]

V8-powered Fiero (355 Replica)

13

When thinking of a suitable intro for this post, I wanted to share my opinion of some replica builds without offending anyone, then I read the owners own intro and realised he summed it up for me with this gem: “The problem I’ve seen with many rebodies though, is that too many of them end […]

Willys Pickup / ’08 Cherokee

01

I guess you could kind of call this a chassis-swap, even though the original chassis is retained, albeit highly modified. This Willys pickup is based on a combination of two cabs (’48 and ’58), being widened to fit over the subframes and floorpan of a 2008 Jeep Cherokee, complete with a 5.7l Hemi. I have […]

BUILD UPDATE: Beck Kustoms Kuda

It’s been over 2 and a half years since I featured Aaron’s Beck Kustoms Cuda, and there’s been plenty of progress since then. I’ve just gone through and updated the original post with a bunch of new images, so take some time out and catch up with Aaron’s amazing work, including a shake-down video. CLICK […]

Triumph TR6…or Z06?

TriumphZ06

Firstly, I feel I need to apologise for the amount of LSx builds on the front page, as I generally like to aim for a bit of variety on the site. But hey, if people keep stuffing them into cars in interesting ways, I have to keep featuring them! This one is a bit more […]

LSx powered E36 BMW

LSxM3

Ahh, the humble LSx swap. Some people might think that LS-swaps are overdone, played out, or whatever your buzzword of choice is. But I guess if you provide a range of compact, affordable, reliable, and easy to tune engines, people are going to use them! Personally, I’m all for them, they look great and appear […]
