Turbo-Mini (bike)

06 April 2014 - 03:20 AM

One of my co-workers brought in his mini bike to finish welding his exhaust he made. That's a VW GTI turbo blowing into the engine.


Carbon Fiber underwear optional.

More Mutant Mopars

Here's one that rolled into the shop that made me gag a bit, but it's a neat Hot Rod.


1969 Charger stuffed with 500 cubes of Scott Schafiroff  big block Chevy running 2 stages of nitrous. Ever since Long Island Dragway closed down there's a whole bunch of former bracket cars getting wired for lights and being driven on the street. This is a complete re-wire.



I opened the drivers door and found this…...


Why do guys wired race cars like a grenade? How much longer, or harder, is it to DO IT RIGHT!?!? ​Needless to say, I'll be installing a Painless wiring kit to make it, er…. "Street Legal". With no wipers….defrosters…..heater…. etc.


And here's the perversion:




I can see doing this to a Satellite or a Belvedere…. but a Charger? <sigh…> Having a hard time rationalizing this guys decision to cut up a popular car for a race car, but hey…. his money pays my bills as well as a true Mopar enthusiast!

Is there a source for a 54 GMC panel? I might have a commission shelf-build coming up.
