This is what it’s all about. Getting together with your friends who all have the same love. Helping each other out with various projects and staying out til all hours of the night to make sure everything is perfect. There’s a weird connection car enthusiasts have with each other. It’s hard to explain, but it’s easy to see when you get together. Community is what it’s all about.
I can not claim the title as my own, but it worked so well I had to use it. It was either stancework or stancenation that thought up that name, can’t remember which. Anyways, I have a small obsession with these early Merc’s, and they seem to be getting more and more popular. Now, this seems to be a photoshop but it does show the car done in a way that really hasn’t been touched before. You usually see them either dropped stock body or patina’d in some way. I am really digging the all black everything in this case. And the big wheels kind of give it a modern twist. A resto-mod, if you will.
Just to give everyone a very small update to the True Driving/House of Tune first project. I have bought a 16 valve swap and had planned on a full restoration. But at this point I just want the motor in and running for the spring. A restoration can come later. I also want to enjoy the Miami Blue before I go for a color change. Anyways Gabe has been doing a bunch of work. Pictures of the motor coming out should come by the end of the week. Here is a teaser of him working out the wiring and ripping out what we don’t need.
I posted part one a while back, but this was a short artistic series covering the Lamborghini Museum. It really lets you observe these cars as the pieces of art that they are. Please enjoy.
With all the Rauh-Welt hype and explosion I think we all forgot what a normal 911 looked like. We shouldn’t ever forget how beautiful this car in it’s natural formal. And with a decent drop and classic set of non-aggressive BBS LM’s, it’s a look that will never go out of style. So lets take a second here and remember that we don’t need to throw on a super duper widebody to make the 911 look beautiful. Although I can’t argue that RWB is doing it right.
I’m sure I’ve talked about Engineered to Slide before, but it’s so incredible what this guy is doing. The picture below is of a fully ground-up build of a Toyota Hilux. Meaning he started with absolutely nothing but a shape and skill in welding and fabrication. This is most likely a dream for most of us, as car enthusiasts. This whole thing was built out of a one-car garage. Props. It’s a really inspirational story.
I love the SR20 block chilling on a skateboard.
Damn US import regulations! Because of our current 25 year import reg., we won’t be seeing a dope 3-series E30 like this for another 7+ years! Ugh, I really hope that petition that is floating around gets enough signatures to bump it down to 15 years. Damn this thing looks good.
