Backyard Lambo Of The Day: Cadillac Northstar-Powered Diablo

If you're going to put a Detroit V8 with FWD transaxle amidships in your Fauxborghini and for some reason the Olds Toronado 425 (or even the 500-cube powerplant from a 1970 Eldorado) doesn't do it for you, how about the readily available Cadillac Northstar? That's what we've got here, and it can be yours for just… » 12/05/08 5:00pm 12/05/08 5:00pm

Backyard Lambo Of The Day: Hawaiian Diablo With Big-Block Chevy Power

The Turbo Buick-powered Fauxborghini Diablo we saw yesterday looked pretty quick, but only 400 horsepower? The real thing came with more like 500 horses, so we had to find a Fauxborghini that could beat that figure.

We can't help but think… » 12/03/08 3:00pm 12/03/08 3:00pm

Backyard Lambo Of The Day: The Missouri Olds Toronado-fied Countach

Nobody seems sick of this series after one repetition, so we're back for more homebuilt Lamborghini glory today! What we've got here is not a Fieroborghini; much like the Indiana Turbo Buick Countach, this Fauxborghini is based on a tube-frame chassis. The best part? The powerplant: a torque-brute 425 engine and… » 12/02/08 2:00pm 12/02/08 2:00pm

Backyard Lambo Of The Day: The Redding Fieroborghini Murcielago!

I found so many backyard-built Fauxborghinis while trying to find a suitable opponent for the '72 Stutz Blackhawk in last Friday's PCH that it seems a shame not to share some of the better ones with our readers (no, I'm not going to do a whole week of Fauxborghini PCH challenges). Hence this new (and no doubt… » 12/01/08 5:30pm 12/01/08 5:30pm
