Now I can't remember the guy's name - a tuner of Minis from the 60s. He used to race with a front/rear engine mini cooper. Renault followed suit with one their own.... both cars were bad ass...

L O N G time ago, a church friend had some of those names in various shapes.....but I was into drag racing and torque, not so much on those names that rusted out SO fast in the DC region....Mid Atlantic up the coast is famous for rust regions, and very tough on any 'Unibody' car....recollecting the old daze of Chrysler from daze of the past.....

Denis this was a good show LOL
These guys are realy good and much more entertaining than the clowns circus show on TV we see all the time, great fab work, did you see how they bent the drive shaft tunnel in episode 4?
I liked it, this little car will be a monster.

Yeah, the metal work is top flight and all the jig related work is very instructive.
It's like Bobs77vet meets 427Swede for those who followed their thread.

Given the last video is dated 19 feb and they seem to produce a video each 2-3, I think it wouldn't be long before an update.
I subscribed, will update the post.

Oh Bogger!
