This 1980 Corolla with a Lexus 4.0L V8 and five-speed manual is for sale in Dallas, Texas. They are currently asking $6,995 for the car. After doing some research I found a Grassroots Motorsports article about the car from 2006.
I wrote about this Jaguar sedan powered by a twin-turbo Ford Power Stroke diesel before but I wasn’t able to find much about it. I was very pleased when the builder recently got in contact with me and pointed me to their Facebook page. More videos and pictures can be found there.

Vianor has released a video showing a souped-up 1956 Volvo BM Terrier tractor. The front suspension has been reinforced and upgraded and the frame was extended 18 cm (7 inches). The engine is sourced from a Volvo 940 turbo (B230FT) with a Volvo 240 head. They used a Saab Turbo Prospark ignition and fuel system. With the turbo outputting 0.75 bar (10.8 psi) the engine outputs 225 horsepower which is good enough for a 60 mph top speed. I am sure this is being limited by the transmission.
An older video with the previous Volvo engine.
This truck sure has been built from one diverse parts bin. The body is made from a 1935 pickup cab and 1934 Ford hood. The drivetrain is made from a 1993 Chevy 350 ci V8, Turbo 350 automatic transmission, and 1984 Jaguar diff. The front suspension is made from a 1963 International front axle and Mustang II rack setup. All of it tied together with a custom frame. It is currently being listed on eBay for $4K. The truck is being sold by a friend because the builder passed away suddenly. I sure hope it finds a new home.
This Porsche was born a 1998 986 Boxster but since has transformed into a Nordic racing monster. The story begins in 2010 when Swedish builder Robin Jonasson from Elite Projects first started modifying the Boxster. Then in 2012 Finn Arne Sivertsen purchased the car after falling in love with its racing potential. Finn has taken the car to the next level with the continued help from Elite Projects.
To give you an idea of how much of this car has been modified, the only things left from the original Boxster is the floors, A-pillars and windshield. Everything else you see is custom. The body is comprised of a widened 997 GT3 Cup front and rear custom fiberglass fenders attached to a 987 Cayman back and roof.
The engine is a twin-turbo 5.0 L Porsche M28.41 V8 sourced from a late 80’s 928 S4 luxury GT coupe. The engine has been upgraded with a dry sump oiling system and thicker steel head gasket. The compression was reduced from 10.0:1 to 9.3:1 so it could be turbocharged. The engine produces 680 horsepower (507 kW) on 7 psi (0.5 bar) of boost to the rear wheels. All this and the car is still street-legal.

A nice video of Rod Saboury’s incredible 1963 Corvette. Known through out as the fastest street-legal Corvette in the world which it probably still is to this day. How many Corvettes have a twin-turbo 427 ci small-block capable of producing 2,600 horsepower and still has functioning headlights, turn signals, reverse lights, and horn? It can rattle off a 6.75 second quarter-mile and 0-60 mph in 0.8 seconds!! For more photos and information go here.
