The Infamous Project

“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?

$5000 Budget Mustang

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!

Crate Cars

You’ve heard of crate engines, but what about a whole crate car? For a few years now, Dynacorn Classic Bodies have been producing all-steel replacement bodies for the ’67 & ’69 Chevy Camaro, ’47-’50 & ’52-’54 Chevy pickup (cab only), and the 67-’70 Ford Mustang.

This means no more buying rusted out shells from the junkyard or a second hand car full of suprises and spending thousands of dollars and man-hours on restorations, you simply start with a brand new shell and build from there. Prices start from $8,995 for the pickup cab, up to $16,500 for the ’70 Mustang (USD).

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?

Ford Granada + Koenigsegg CCX V8

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.

SN65 03/65 Mustang

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.

Homemade Hummer H150

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;
