Yes, you read that correctly, a 1JZ in a Mini. A 1JZ…in a Mini. I don’t know what is causing the recent influx of Mini’s here lately, but this is the 3rd one I’ve featured in as many months. To be honest I don’t like featuring similar cars in close succession, and this build is [...]

With so many out-there projects and engine swaps being featured lately, I thought it would be a nice change of pace to feature a good old fashioned restoration. Jon emailed me his very thorough re-build of a classic 1977 Mini pickup. What I love about this build is that Jon built the car to be [...]

Oh man, I’m scared to even figure out how long ago this was submitted. It takes me a while to get through all the submissions, so if you email me a build and it doesn’t get posted straight away, don’t fret! This is another great build submitted by Cereal, a loyal reader who has emailed [...]
Here’s a pair of custom modified RC cars, even more detailed than the sunRISE AE86 that was previously featured. The detail work is beyond amazing, the person behind it is a true craftsman… .
