    • Yes, bought a Ford Escort MK2 with a YB Cosworth engine as a project. It's still in pieces as the project always feels too far away. Got all the bits but the job looks to big for 1 man to handle.

  • My 1995 Lancer GSR started pretty much exactly like this in 2012. I was 15, it was a few months before I could go for my L's. Dad & I worked on it for six months, got it running, re-registered, and it's been my daily since. Has undergone no shortage of work since. Always at home, in the garage, DIY 😄 My 1977 Lancer started like this as well now that I think about it.. Albeit only two years ago. Restored & re-registered. Has been my daily for the last 12 months while the GSR has been off the road for a bodywork restoration (Been a long time coming). If you're interested in 70's Mitsubishi Lancers, a chronological build log is on Instagram @Liams_LB

  • Cars seems to be very expensive in Australia, I never known even a modified EJ/k to go for more than a couple of grand unless its really OTT upgraded for shows/track. Used to have a turquoise one myself which was lowered and loud and a lot of fun and I only paid about 600 for it, sold it for about the same with a couple changes. Looking forward to seeing what you do with this one.

  • Talking of subs and 17 year olds, its so hard explaining why a good set of speakers is more importent than the sub itself, the amount of noob I have seen with stock speakers and a sub is crazy, I tell them spend just £70 on some better speakers and the whole thing will be far better

  • I just recently bought a 1989 Civic LX sedan. The front suspension is shot, the trunk had a pool of oil in it and both front fenders and passenger side of the car hit a guard rail. The car in total was $50. She starts, runs and drives, but it has so much positive camber that she is super hard to keep straight. The interior cleaned up super nice and she has a lot of potential.

Love that they are doing something out of their wheel haus so to speak since the only other Hondas were the S2K and the mini. My excavation as I gutted the car, cause I wanted an obnoxious fully gutted car one in my life, I got a sledgehammer and a pretty good phone recharger. And the carpet was all moist even though I started gutting the car a week after purchase which was ….. disconcerting to say the least.
