80’s Supras, much like 80’s Corollas, are becoming more and more rare as time goes on. Sadly the Supra is not immune to the afflictions some of these old vehicles seem to get, least of all: rust. Like any great vintage Japanese car, it has the ability to slowly disintegrate before your very eyes. The… Continue reading Supra Preservation – Rust Removal
Back From The Dead – AE86 Restoration – Pt. 4
We’re back with the final chapter in this restoration series. If you didn’t catch the beginning of this story, it’s definitely worth getting caught up. This poor little old Corolla was in pretty rough shape when we first got our hands on it, but things are finally starting to look a lot more solid.
A Super Restomod – Lotus Super Seven – Part Two
Welcome to Part Two of our Super Seven restoration coverage! If you didn’t check out part one yet, you should get on that first, then get right back here! Enough of that, let’s dig in to part two!
A Super Restomod – Lotus Super Seven – Part One
We’ve mentioned before that we enjoy challenging projects from time to time, and this one would be no exception. It’s a Lotus Super Seven! Okay, but not actually. Y’see, this is actually a licensed copy of the Lotus Super Seven, one that was manufactured by a Canadian company in the 70’s and 80’s. So, as… Continue reading A Super Restomod – Lotus Super Seven – Part One
Punchy Porsche Cayman S – LS3 Swapped
Porsche is a brand known for its sporty rear-engine (and mid-rear engine) luxury cars, and there aren’t many folks who would purchase a Porsche and say “It needs more.” These people do exist however, and it turns out that we met one! We were presented a challenge: an LS Swapped Porsche Cayman that feels just… Continue reading Punchy Porsche Cayman S – LS3 Swapped

BMW (S)2002tii – Honda F20C Swap Part 2

Back From The Dead – AE86 Restoration Pt. 2
We are back for the second part of restorting this very, very rusty AE86! In the first part of this series, we had a look at all of the various rusty regions found on this car (spoiler: it’s the whole car), and took it for media blasting to try and reveal as much of the… Continue reading Back From The Dead – AE86 Restoration Pt. 2
The Datsun Of 1000 Dents – 1972 Datsun 510
We’ve always been firm believers that one of the best ways to start off with a clean old Japanese car for a proper build is to go down south of the border (like, really south) to find them. California, Oregon, and Texas have some real gems if you’re willing to do the legwork of shipping… Continue reading The Datsun Of 1000 Dents – 1972 Datsun 510
The Targa Truck – 1971 GMC Truck
Anybody who is familiar with us here at Cyrious Garageworks is probably also familiar with the fact that we tend to enjoy a challenge. A challenge is exactly what we were presented with when Mark brought us the Targa Truck: a 1971 GMC Truck being repurposed from moving lumber from the hardware store to tearing… Continue reading The Targa Truck – 1971 GMC Truck
