Here’s another car that’s a bit left-of-field. Daniel submitted this one, a little Ford Focus packing some GM V8 grunt with a healthy sized turbo hanging off it for some extra fun. Unfortunately there’s quite a few dead pics in the thread, hopefully they come back online soon.
“3 months – 2 Cars – 1 Dream”
Dave from Stance Is Everything sent me an email to let me know about The Infamous Project which is due to take place from January 1st until March 11th, 2010. During this time you will be able to view the customisation of two cars live a LIVE feed in the builder’s garage. This is taking the whole build thread/online journal concept to a new level. The cars in question are a 1992 BMW AC Schnitzer and a 1989 Mustang GT Convertible, so there’s something for the Euro and USDM lovers amongst us.
Could this live concept start a new trend in the online car documentation scene?
Head to http://theinfamousproject.com/ to read up more about the project(s) and be sure to bookmark it.
The caption under the picture says it all, “The first street rod built entirely on the web!”
I’d been following this particular build thread for a while, when I noticed that the kind folk over at My Ride Is Me had done a feature on it recently. So instead of doing my own story, I’ll leave you in their capable hands, enjoy!
You’ve heard of crate engines, but what about a whole crate car? For a few years now,
So which would you prefer, an original muscle car with history or a brand new re-make? Each have their pros and cons, but are they really classic muscle cars?
An engine swap of truly epic proportions, this Ford Granada is receiving a new power plant from a Koenigsegg CCX. Before deciding to tear the car down for a full rebuild, the owner had already been enjoying 600bhp of Cosworth power. To go along with the supercar engine transplant, the rear end is being replaced with 2004 Mustang Cobra R parts.
Get ready for a truly epic build. Similar to the Mad Minor project, this is another build that involves taking the body of a classic car and dropping it onto a chopped up frame from a newer unibody car. In this case it’s a 1965 Mustang fastback being mated to the underpinnings of a 2003 SVT Mustang.
Take one 1987 Ford F150 chassis and mate it to a custom H1 Hummer body and what do you get? a H150 of course.
Here we have another DIY home-made build. This particular creation resides in Montreal, and is the mastermind of Francois. Thanks to Raiss (aka CEPAT) from JDM Style Tuning for the tip-off. The full build thread is up to 47 pages and counting, so I’ll get straight to business. Here’s some teasers;
