The original Toyota Land Cruiser you know as a rugged adventure icon is called the FJ40, or “Shorty Forty” because of its relatively short wheelbase. Since then there have been many Cruiser variants over the years, but the 40’s big brother the FJ45 is one of the coolest and least-appreciated. This restored and…
The Land Rover Defender is an archaic, slab-sided agricultural work truck. Yet people are paying $200,000 for custom versions with extra layers of leather inside and outrageously overpowered engines. I’ve driven a lot of steroidal trucks, but East Coast Defender’s Chevy V8-swapped Land Rover was definitely one of the…
At no point does OCD car redesigner Jonathan Ward of ICON ever explicitly say how much it cost to turn a clapped out (first) Clinton-era Miami Dade PD Chevy Caprice into what you see above. It’s almost certainly six figures and most definitely worth it. Is it ICON’s best car? Yes, yes it is.
Hard to help falling in love with the Eagle Speedster. Look at those lines. The details. The bulge! And with the incorrigibly English Charles Morgan at the wheel, forget it. I’m dead. Take me away. Just please, oh please let me ride an Eagle in heaven.
Today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe Ford Gal… I mean, Mercury Maurad.. oh hell, this resto-ride... could be the best of both worlds, unless its price is the worst in the world.
If you want to see a monster truck crush rocks, don’t bother watching this. No, wait! I promise you don’t want to miss any of the beautiful details on Winslow Bent’s custom-made ’42 Dodge Power Wagon. Check it out with comedian car guy Jay Leno.
The 1956 Ford F-100 is one devastatingly pretty pickup. Hot rod builder Bodie Stroud agrees, and has decided to start selling his own iteration of this classic as the X-100 with "modern suspension, a brand new Ford Racing motor and transmission, and the interior and gauges from a late-model F-150."
M35 "deuce and a half" army trucks are surprisingly easy to come by. If you can't find one rotting in some farmer's field, there are always a handful selling cheap at auctions. But I've never seen one re-imagined as beautifully as this.
By packing 38 tire-blistering horsepower into a cut-down, ultra lightweight 2 wheeler with a straight-cut, 4-speed transmission, the German mental patients at Scooter and Service may have just built the world's most perfect vintage Vespa.
Everyone jabbers on about an Apple iCar, but what if Microsoft built a car? You'd get this — a 1967 Mustang body on a 2012 Mustang with blazing lights, Windows Phone controls, an Xbox 360, and tablets everywhere. Called "Project Detroit," it's actually the Windows Vista of Mustangs.
Building a restomod is straightforward: Take the body of a classic car and stuff it full of updated drivetrain and suspension pieces. While most builders start with Detroit products, England's Frontline Developments uses an MGB-GT and calls the stunning result the LE50.
The DIY Network's airing a five show segment of its Celebrity Rides program devoted to big Burt and his new Bandit. The Burt in question is of the Reynolds variety, and the Bandit is the YearOne TransAm restomod project. That is, the Burt Reynolds Edition TransAm, which YearOne creates from the bones of rescued…
Resto shop YearOne and Burt Reynolds have formed a holy alliance to revive a classic of such massive pop-cultural significance, no amount of throwaway hyperbole can do it
Buford T. justice. They're planning to build a limited run of Bandit Trans Am models. As Autoblog reports, the cars will be created from original…
