It’s funny how things work out. After reading an article on Speedhunters, I was briefly skimming over the comments at the bottom of the article, when I noticed someone talking about a suicide-rod being built for drifting duties. I googled the persons screen-name and found they had an account on Zilvia, so I promptly headed over there and pm’d them asking for more details in the hope of getting some pics & info for you guys.
As fate would have it, the project had been put on the back-burner. Fortunately for us, the team behind that car has something else in the build.
Presenting, Industrialized Metal, a 1994 Chevy Dually custom truck.

Another Golf, but this one’s a bit more ‘function over form’ than previous VW features.
Mid-engine, rear wheel drive; I’ll let the pics do the rest of the talking…

If you liked the Electric Mighty Boy then here’s another electric powered build. Similar idea, but a whole different execution. This one would be more at home at a car show than a Greenpeace convention. I love the way it looks without body panels, sort of like a skeleton on wheels. If petrol becomes obsolete in our lifetime, I for one would definitely not complain if I had to cruise around in something like this.

Whilst doing my daily statistics check on the blog, I noticed i was getting clicks from Performance Forums. When I followed the link I was greeted by a thread loaded with some of the member’s favourite builds, and the following feature is one of them.
Desert Racing is a big-dollar sport, and the no-expense spared trucks are assembled with some of the most impressive fabrication you’re ever likely to see. They need to withstand the extreme levels of punishment associated with driving in some of the worlds harshest terrain. If you’re not into off-road racing, I’m sure you’ll at least be captivated by the builds that go along with it.

Yet another famous build that did the internet rounds a while ago, this time it’s a Group B rally car that gets the attention of some master craftsmen. Everything on this car has been restored to as-new condition with meticulous detail, right down to hand painted dials on the gauges. It is a restoration of truly biblical proportions, definitely one of the most impressive builds on the internet to date, lots of fabrication and hand formed metal to inspire you.

I can’t remember how I stumbled across this build way back in 2007, but I’m sure glad I did. A talented guy named Mike over in Oregon has been cutting, chopping, and welding his 1969 Chevy Tahoe wagon into a work of art. It’s been converted from long-wheelbase to short-wheelbase, had an extra door added, custom suicide hinges, one piece tailgate, rust repairs, airbag suspension, the list is endless!
The most amazing thing about this build is that he’s doing it all himself in his garage.
If you like metal fabrication, this is one build you can’t afford to miss.
