Exactly my thoughts on the 2130 vs 230 styling. Had to get rid of the boxy and bring the flaring back.  conekillerautoX on youtube - I have a lot of videos on them both

Hello Everyone,  Here's a few pics of what I'm working on in the garage. its a tribute to an iconic Race Car that dominated FIA Racing in the late 1990's, the MB CLK-GTR. The build features a full Tube Chassis, Mid-Engine Twin Turbo V6, Corvette Hubs, & Suspension, Heat and A/C , Volvo electric Power Steering and a Hand-Formed Aluminum Body, The plan is to make this a road going car when completed and getting registered as a custom-home built vehicle. Im about 5 years into this so its a slow going project, as time and money allow. But making steady progress and looking forward to hearing from the members here, all the best , -Vince 

These last 2 are recent

This is what im going for.....

Thank for reading ! -Vince

Completely out of my usual wheelhouse. I'm doing a mechanical restoration on this old commercial lawnmower

Well the no title parts car (engine donor for my Boxster) is now going to be a challenge build. 

I kept thinking about it. Bought it for $500, hope to sell interior for that much. Needs a clutch $250, sell more parts. Get a set of tires, exempt from budget, buy a seat and some mods.

Figured not a bad crazy build for a first challenge attempt.

Some of you  know that I work at a British car restoration shop (Red Bearing Restoration) 2 days a week and the owner has decided to build a race car out of a 1952 Austin A30. I don't know if it comes across in pictures but this car is small. How small? It has a shorter wheelbase than an MG Midget and is narrower than a Mini. Somehow it has seating for 4 and an engine bay big enough for a 4 cylinder. Midget suspension and brakes bolt right on so I did a complete front suspension/brake swap on it and wanted to show you some tiny cross drilled rotors. It's going to get a 1275 cc engine out of a Midget and we'll do the usual high compression, cam, ported heads, lightened flywheel and dual carb mods on it. These engines are really fun when they are hotted up a bit.

Man that's a good one.. I'd go for broke put a big block Chevy in it, with a blower slam it down and slap on some Datons. You will definitely raise some eye brows. Lol on the more serious note port and polish is good don't know if you can bore out the 4 and those dual carbs are like twins exactly alike but act differently pain to dial in and once you do and you drive up the road to show it off lets say 4 hours away all the parameters change and you got to redial her in for everthing from altitude temperatures and humidity. Go early redial it in and be the Austin A30 it once was Good luck! Hell just have fun and meet new folks out there.

Just started a thread on my latest retirement project. This one is number 7. I restore derelict vehicles for fun, not profit. Here's the progression:

And now, the latest...

Building my first project car was a stupid combination of one thing I grew up with and one I got for free the engine a ford 302 from a 1989 ford mustang is getting a full rebuild and refresh with new injectors, cnp conversion, and lots of new sensors and adding a turbo for 500whp goal. The chassis is an awd jdm mitsubishi chariot chassis. Mods for the chassis will be a transmission tunnel fab, rear cantilever suspension, and custom wiring harness for everything. The goal is a streetable drift taxi that will be plenty fun, reliable and about as fuel efficient as a lexus is250. And maybe some trying to make some carbon fibre parts if i want to test myself and feel baller. It's my project but I'm building it with my father as a bonding experience.

Hope she fits here! A build/project of mine for the past couple years. I've been rag-dolling this little gumball of mine to find what upgrades suit her best. With some modest modifications to the suspension, exhaust system, interior, exterior, and oem mounts.
