  • Icon FJ40 Baja Edition

    Back in 2007, SCORE turned to Icon and Jonathan Ward for a run of special Baja Edition FJ40 Land Cruisers. Those trucks were priced at $145,000 and boasted far more aggressive off-road chops then the average Icon build. Fast forward to today, and Icon has been tasked with revisiting the style and capability of those old rigs but for a one-off FJ40 built for a special customer. It's called the Icon FJ40 Baja Edition. This truck serves as a thank you between business partners. Years back, one partner told the other that he'd build him a special Icon truck if the company hit a certain financial...

  • Jeep Wrangler Honcho Bruiser Conversion

    Bruiser Conversions loves the Jeep Wrangler. Not because of what it can do in factory-stock trim but rather because of what Bruiser can create with the Wrangler as its starting point. The company's latest modified masterpiece? The Jeep Wrangler Honcho. Using a JK Unlimited as the base machine, Bruiser Conversions transforms the rig into a Wrangler pickup truck. This isn't the company's standard JK Crew build, however, as the Honcho also boasts a retro-inspired Gladiator front clip, Honcho badging, and a lot more that creates a lot more capability.

  • Custom built Mercedes-Benz S500 on a GAZ-66 chassis
    This off-road S-Class is what Mad Max would drive if he won the lottery

    Mercedes-Benz built the W140-generation S-Class from 1991 through 1998. During that time, we'd estimate that approximately zero of the engineers involved in the project ever envisioned a jacked-up, off-road version sitting atop a former military truck chassis.

  • Project Gold: 911 restomod

    Porsche pulled the wraps off of Project Gold, a resto-modded 993-generation 911 sports car to much fanfare last week. The 993-generation 911 is special to Porsche aficionados: it was the final air-cooled Porsche 911, the first to feature twin turbochargers, and it boasted the nameplate's first aluminum multi-link rear suspension. Alas, Project Gold can't be driven on the street in most countries. The special 911 project, which celebrates the marque's 70th anniversary, is built from a never-used frame and body shell.
