So that is my MINI, but what else do i have.....

How about the 05' GMC Savana Van...aka: the counterfeit.
Yeah, it's a work van, and it corners at a 10 mph max, but it's all about the fun.

Da Grill, Bonnet strips, Window banner, and custom bonnet badge, & Light Bar....

Side Marker & Short Antenna

The Plate, Rear Logo, Rear Badge, & Custom home made counterfeit Exhaust pipes....

The Side Predebadging

Just before the Dragon, nice blacked out wheels.

Chuck wanted to drive "The Dragon"

And Yes it does have a mod list:
Custom MINI badges
Bonnet Strips
Custom Grill
Custom MINI Side Markers
i-Pod connection
Custom Alta Short antenna
K&N Filter
Custom 3" Exhaust Tip
Blacked out wheel logos
Custom MINI exhaust trailer hitch cover
Class III Hitch
7-way plug with Brake Controller
"Light Bar"


We some times need to pick up a broken MINI, or have a day at the track.
Here is the front with Logos and a rather good looking MINI on top.

The Rear with the custom reflective Logos

I also have a 1973 Nova

This car was my first car ever, i bought it at 14 years old and started the resto project that will never end.  Currently the  car runs a low 12 second at 110 mph. but i think the car has a 11.99 in it with some tuning.  the car currently has a ZZ4 GM motor in it. it was turned into a ZZ430 with new head, intake, and cam.  it has 430 HP with 430 ft. lbs. of tq.  lots of fun items on it, but here is quick list.
10 bolt rear ends with 3.73 rear gear and posi unit with cal-track bars and a load plate.
custom alum. drive shaft with drive shaft loop.
350 turbo trans with 3500 stall converter and other stuff inside.
powder coated sub frame and suspension with all new poly bushing.
and other items.

(Coming Soon)
The Actual Garage.

This is where the magic happens...may MINIs have been modded here....after 9 years for working hard in the garage, it got a face lift.

some more...

here are a few photos from the work today. started to mock it all up and do a few mods and things. take a look.
water to air unit.

a sneak peek at the final look.

oops how did that get in there... >:D

more stuff.

got to have oil all the time.

more fun stuff!

While doing all my upgrades, i was able to finally finish the tail light mod that has been sitting on the shelf that many of you have seen in pieces. so here are some before and after photos of the rear end. take a look at the tail lights and notice that the rear wiper is gone and the other chrome things will be finding there way off the car and make it look more clean.



...more to come later....
here is another new tail light photo:

we have done another set for a customers car, and yet one more set to do for another.  we can also do body color!!

Some New Photos:
(notice all the chrome is Blue)

Some new pics before it went to bed till spring.
