What’s wrong with the Automotive Industry

You know what… yep… I’m gonna beat this dead horse one last time & then I’m done. I will never, ever understand why the new Toyota Supra is a BMW that doesn’t come with a manual transmission or targa top. It's impossible to wrap my head around it. Furthermore -...

Cross Streams // Solid Axle Swap WD21 Nissan Pathfinder

What we’re lookin’ at here - is a solid axle swap 1988 WD21 Nissan Pathfinder. It's awesome! But it’s not easy… or cheap lol.  This straight-axle swapped WD21 Pathfinder belongs to Daniel Pence. He drives it a lot actually, both on & off-road. He’s owned this...

Lifted Bronco Sport – Is it a Real Bronco?

The Bronco Sport isn't even a "real" Bronco... A lot of folks have been skeptical about the off-road capabilities of Ford's new Bronco Sport. I'll be the first to admit, I was a skeptic myself - was. That's until I got the opportunity to experience the Bronco Sport...

Lifted Civic Update #13: Front End 90% COMPLETE! Headed to Gambler 500 TN

This week has been interesting, to say the least. We have been hard at work over at the Slightly Mangled garage. Jake managed to slide in the Hasport Performance engine & T-brackets between the subframe & the body thanks to our HRG Engineering subframe drop....

Can of Whoop RS

Widebody Dinan BMW M2

Widebody Dinan BMW M2

Widebody BMW M2... When I first got into this car-building underworld, I did it for the kickass & badass cars. Pretty simple formula right? But what I didn’t understand at the time, is that behind every awesome car, there’s usually a more awesome person that built...

Running Boards on a Lowered OBS Bricknose F150

My latest midnight Marketplace score was this set of old OEM running boards off a later 92-96 OBS F150. Here they are, in all their glory... installed, but unpainted on my lowered bricknose F150. They came off a gray truck, which I thought might conveniently match the...

Coming off Holley’s Intergalactic Ford Fest … I realized I learned a little something from my fellow Ford bros.  Number 1... Live in the moment. Truly BE where your feet are. And stop trying to live on/for social media. And… learn to rock the sh!t out of a mullet. ...

Static S13: Where there’s a Weds; there’s a way

Life is an adventure right? So metaphorically, carry an wide-eyed outlook on life similar to this S13 240SX Silvia: Go purple, go low, go wide, go big, and come through smiling. C’mon - it’d be naive (if not downright foolish) to think you could micromanage the whole...

Here's a 2nd lesson that's been settling-in with me from Holley's Intergalactic Ford Fest: You don’t necessarily need to have the quickest / or cleanest / or highest horsepower car on the block. Sometimes ‘the best’ can honestly become a little expected &...
