Sometimes the best car builds live outside of the box. Take, for example, these VW-powered Honda products: A “Harlequin” Civic with a 1.8T under the hood and an Integra with a VR6 placed in the middle.

Do these cars make sense? Not particularly, but we’ll always tip our GRM hats (available now in the GRM store) to any build that goes against the norm.

The Dutch may be best known for their tulips, wooden shoes and windmills, but now they can also add “V10-powered E46 M3” to that list.

Holland-based BMW Procar Specialist Zwolle built the cars using an S85 V10 mated to a dual-clutch transmission and fitted into an E46-chassis M3–the first of its kind according to its builder.

What’s more exciting to watch than two cars battle it out side-by-side? Watching two cars battle it out side-by-side for an entire lap.

Of course, we wouldn’t expect anything less from a spec series like Australia’s TGRA 86 Series.

Ever try to record the symphony from that brand-new exhaust you installed, only to get a video that’s mostly just wind noise?

Thankfully, there is a way to get decent audio that you can share with your friends, and all you need is a couple of inexpensive microphones and some tape–like this video featuring a Miata.

Classic MTV featured plenty of cool cars, like the ones used in videos from ZZ Top, Whitesnake and Sammy Hagar. But we're not sure if we noticed this one back in the day: Chrissie Hynde escapes various pitfalls while wheeling a Reliant Scimitar SS1 in the video for The Pretenders’ “Don’t Get Me Wrong.”

So, whatcha got for other MTV videos featuring obscure cars?

Famous for being nearly indestructible, the Toyota Hilux has another feature that few of us have been aware of all this time: The ability to fly.

According to this old-school commercial from a Toyota dealership in Fiji, the best way to cross a body of water is to just fly over it instead of driving around it or going through it.

Did you know that Volkswagen offered an all-wheel-drive version of the Golf before the R32? Called the Golf Country, the rare VW is, essentially, the overlanding version of the Mk2 Golf. (VW also offered the "Rallye Golf," another all-wheel-drive Mk2 built to meet homologation rules.)

Although never officially imported into the United States, we got to see one up close thanks to VW fanatic Jamie Orr while we spent time with FCP Euro at Lime Rock. Presented by CRC Industries.

Our publisher Tim Suddard has driven a lot wacky cars over the years–most of them his own projects–but an open-top Messerschmitt KR200? That’s a new one for all of us.

As you might imagine, driving microcars like these is an experience that is often both fun and terrifying. Presented by CRC Industries.

Need to sum up hillclimbing for someone? Send them​​​​​​ this video of Travis Pastrana beating his own record at the Mt. Washington Hillclimb as an introduction.

Not only does it feature the many unique challenges that hillclimb events offer–like narrow, uneven public roads and very little margin for error–but it also helps to convey just how fast purpose-built race cars can go.

Don’t worry, project creep happens to us, too. Case in point? Our LS-swapped 2003 Nissan 350Z project car.

What started out as a rowdy street car quickly turned into an ambitious plan to compete in NASA’s TT2 Time Trials class.
