Introducing Driveline Blog Builds
Everyone knows someone who is pouring their blood, sweat, tears, and a big chunk of their life savings into restoring or customizing a project vehicle. It could be a classic Porsche 911, 1957 Chevy, or a 1969 Dodge Charger R/T. Or maybe it’s a custom conversion: Anyone out there shoehorning a small block V8 into a Mazda RX-7?
That’s why I’ve decided to launch a new feature called Driveline Blog Builds (DLBB) that will highlight one vehicle project a month. I’ll have more details to post about the series in a few days, when I’ll also unveil the first DLBB project vehicle.
Here’s a preview of our inaugural DLBB vehicle: It’s a custom BMW E28 5-series that sports an E28 sub frame, E39 rack and pinion steering, and an S52 Turbocharged engine from an E36 M3. The owner hopes to race the finished vehicle in the upcoming 2009 One Lap of America, and is pushing to get the vehicle finished in time for the event.
If you know of a vehicle worthy of being featured as a monthly Driveline Blog Build, drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
