MOOG threw down the challenge to buy a car for less than $10,000… catch is, the engine cannot be in the front of the car. He showed up with an old Volkswagen and I dragged out my JDM Hard Top Turbocharged Toyota MR2 that has been sitting around for a little too long. While MOOG gets cracking pulling apart carbies and working away on his weird old Volkswagen, I’m in my shed trying to work out how to sort out the rust, corrosion and broken parts that make up this 30 year old nugget.
Also something to note around Mighty Car Mods: we are normal guys and are not trained mechanics. We like to make interesting car mods and show you how we’ve gone about it, but we can’t promise that anything we show you will work for your particular car, or that you won’t harm yourself, someone else, your car or your warranty doing it. Please be safe, be responsible and unless you know what you’re doing, do not fool around with very serious machinery just because you’ve seen us make it look so easy. Talk to a qualified mechanic if you are in any doubt.
