’69 Karmann Ghia, powered by Subaru.

ghia

This feature has been a long time coming, and to be honest I’m not sure why I didn’t do it sooner. You see, Mike is one of the few people that liked to share updates of his build on the Build Threads Facebook page, and every time he’d post an image, readers would love it. […]

W12 powered VW Fridolin

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

What is this I don’t even? Apparently the VW Fridolin was designed as a postal service car, something I never knew (thank you Wikipedia). Somehow I think this particular one’s mail hauling days are over, especially considering it’s W12 (yes, W-freaking-twelve!) power-plant and Touareg rear end. Thanks to Henning for submitting.

MKIV Golf Ute/Pickup conversion

vwute

What I love about the modifying game isn’t just the ability to improve on a car’s performance or looks, but those rare people who take it that step further and change the whole purpose of a car. I first laid eyes on this MKIV Golf Estate/Wagon turned ute on Racer86.com within some event coverage. After […]

Mk1 Golf Kamei Replica

Kamei

I’ve got a fair few builds that have been sitting in my inbox for quite a while, so for this post I decided to go all the way back to my oldest submission from June 2010, 3 years ago! Looking at it now, I’m kicking myself for not featuring it sooner. You should know by […]

4 struts, 17 inches, 2 switches: MKIII Jetta

hydrojetta

I’ll admit it, when I first received a link to this thread, I thought “oh no, I can’t feature a car whose main purpose is to get as low as possible, the fans will destroy me in the comments!”, but then I dug a little deeper. As build thread aficionados, I think we all agree […]

Satan’s Lady Bug

SatansLadyBug

Residing amongst the sea of first-gen Camaro’s on the Pro Touring forum lies this very special bug, one that I’ve had my eye on for a few years. After owning an assortment of muscle cars, the owner realises his childhood dream of owning a V8-powered VW Beetle by buying one already complete. Once he takes […]

Swallowtail MK1 Golf

About a year ago I featured an Audi A3 turbo belonging to a very talented man by the name of Alex. He was the driving force behind my idea for creating a post tag called People Who Get It, for those special build threads belonging to people who take the time to take nice photos […]

VW Bug Pickup

1967 Volkswagen Beetle + roof chop + 1950 Chevy pickup = Bugtruck! Thanks to Geoff for submitting. Click here for more ute/pickup conversions. Click here for more VW builds.

Forgotten Builds: ’70 VW Notch

22

I’ve lost track of how long this build has been sitting in my drafts, but I look at it every time I access the back-end of the site and check it’s link for updates but sadly come up empty handed. It’s one of the many threads out there that sit forever in cyber limbo, forgotten […]

Lifted MKV Golf

Lifted-MKV

I’ve noticed a little bit of backlash whenever I feature a Golf on the site. Not much, but enough to make me second-guess posting the next candidate I come across. I like Golfs, I own one, and if you think they’re too common, modded in the wrong way or even if you don’t like the […]
