by Skylar Siegel, Wheelwell ITB Editor Starting this month, I’ll be sharing with you my TOP 5 picks of all the Inside the Build’s we’ve ever featured on Wheelwell, and give you a few thoughts on each (you can also read more about me below). Keep building, driving, and share the passion.
Britt's 1995 BMW M3 The capabilities of these cars is well documented and in this particular example, the attention to detail is unparalleled. From the canyons to the track, this car can do it all. The appeal of an E36 is clear, and Britt took full advantage of an already track ready platform. https://wheelwell.com/britt-vail/27x3/1995-bmw-m3
Kevin's 1991 Nissan 240SX For those of us who have a soft spot for Nissan’s, this S13 Coupe with an SR20DET pretty much speaks (or whistles) for itself. Plenty of boost and subtle mods will make any enthusiast do a double take. https://wheelwell.com/kevin-sugameli/12va/1991-nissan-240sx
Don's 2003 Volvo S60 This Volvo S60 is weird, unique and awesome. It is the quintessential example of the Swedespeed lifestyle, and I truly admire the artistic execution of this ride. https://wheelwell.com/don-sweetman/uej/2003-volvo-s60
Evan's 1991 Nissan 300ZX I know this week's Inside the Build Revisited features two Nissan’s that both happen to be from 1991 but I mean come on! This tastefully modded 300ZX looks like it rips the track as well as it cruises the strip. https://wheelwell.com/evan-blittner/1um3/1991-nissan-300zx
Karl's 1999 Jaguar XJ Karl's XJ has been a fixture in Wheelwell Top Modded Rides list for quite some time now, and there's a reason why. From the 6.2 V8 and gated shifter combo, to the paint and upholstery. Unique, innovative projects that represent the character of the owner are a favorite, and this Jag fits the bill. https://wheelwell.com/karl-muth/n72/1999-jaguar-xj Who the !@#$ is Skylar? My name is Skylar, and I am one of the newest additions to the Wheelwell team. As a longtime car geek, three pedals, turbo whistle and diesel clatter make me happy but expect my tastes to surprise you; I’m just as happy in a MK1 Rabbit as I am in a 4x4 Diesel F-250. As long as it’s unique and original, I’ll dig whatever flavor it is. My first car was a 1996 Jeep Cherokee and as I learned the (many) quirks and capabilities of the XJ platform, I was soon hooked on the idea of building a 4x4 machine. Shortly after, I acquired the car that would develop my tastes away from the norm. The car was a rusted and busted 1977 VW Scirocco and with it I learned to enjoy metalwork, chasing down electrical nightmares and troubleshooting the most particular of all fuel systems. As my rust bucket odyssey continued, I landed a W123 turbo diesel Mercedes, dove into diesel performance and fell head over heels for boost. I consider myself to be someone who loves cars and trucks for their own sake, and whenever I encounter one that has been modified in a unique or innovative way, I love them all the more. In these posts, I’ll revisit past Inside the Build’s and give you a few thoughts on each. You can find me on Wheelwell here. #insidethebuild
