It’s official: we’ve found our new favorite build channel on YouTube, and its run by MotorCrush user Houston Kilby. He is currently documenting the construction of his 2,000 horsepower ProCharged GTO. The sheer talent and expertise that Houston is putting into the build alone should be enough to keep you entertained. And he is creating all of this from his garage. From the chassis construction to fabricating the headers and side-mounted exhaust, all were performed by Houston in his workshop and documented on his YouTube channel. You can keep up with the progress of this build as it nears completion by following Houston on MotorCrush via the link above. Also, make sure you stop by his YouTube channel to check out some of his other build videos.

We spotted this 530i and its out-of-this-world galaxy fire wrap shooting its way up the MotorCrush Trending Feed. Needless to say, this wrap makes an impression, and when coupled with Vossen rims and aggressive stance, this car becomes a definitive neck-breaker. A vinyl wrap is a great solution for any build that needs a bit more pop. Definitely shoot Michael a message if you’re looking to get a wrap done in the South Georgia area. As always, make sure you drop a like and follow via the link above.

 

FEATURED GARAGE OF THE WEEK

owned by Sean Collins

VEHICLES:
1948 Morris 8
2009 Peugeot Expert
2002 Jaguar X-Type

MORRIS BIO: “This car was left abandoned as a parts car for 20 years before I found it in the background of a car breakers advert. Future plans are to sand and weld the body to get ready for clear coats of lacquer. Plans are to fit a small block Chevy V8, Brembo brakes, Jaguar XKR running gear, deep dish rims and a roll cage with many more things to come. Follow me on Instagram @crazydudegonemad”

PEUGEOT BIO: “This highway maintenance van has been turned into a portable man cave with currently a 220 watt sound system, Sony stereo, 32 inch TV, PS4, Xbox One S, Sony projector, sofa bed, insulated panels and roof, touch sensitive lighting, 600 watt power inverter and upgraded from 110 to 150 amp alternator and 110v electric hook up.”

JAGUAR BIO: “This is my track car project, although I brought it broken, the parts are being replaced or upgraded. Also installing a roll cage and lowering.”

DRIVER BIO: “My name is Sean Collins and I try to do unusual projects like making a van into a gaming room, a 70 year-old Morris into a rat rod or turning a Jaguar into a track car. There are more projects coming in the next few months.”

This is certainly one of the most interesting garages we’ve come across, so we had to share it with you guys. I mean, come on, turning a transit van into a mobile man cave—that’s genius! The only thing this van needs is a fish tank and then Sean will be giving Pimp My Ride a run for its money. All jokes aside, seeing this van build definitely makes us excited to see what’s in store for the Morris and Jaguar. Did somebody say Jacuzzi?
