We see quite a few Supras although they are quite old and getting rarer thanks to over enthusiastic drivers with unrealistic expectations of the cars grip and handling. Thankfully most of the Supras around are carefully cherished and looked after by their owners. Continue reading Chrome Supra engine bay styling
Engine bays are usually pretty dull and covered with oily parts. One option is to fit a nice engine cover which is the option that many manufacturers go for, especially on newer cars. Continue reading Manga Spray painted engine cover
Skyline intake trumpets in Pink. Ok so we admit that pink is not the greatest colour and the intakes in most cars are usually covered with an air filter but for shows and serious track day use you can’t beat a pair of nice intake trumpets. It’s the little touches like this that make a car feel wanted and appreciated. Continue reading Skyline intake trumpets
We found this MR2 lurking in the corner of a show in Kent. On a casual glance it looks fairly standard with a custom front bumper being the only obvious modification.

Why not make a feature of the engine as this kit car owner has done. The Westfields look pretty cool at the best of times but when you add more than a subtle hint of chrome to the engine it almost seems a shame to put the engine cover on. Continue reading Westfield engine styling
Engine bays have always been notoriously difficult to keep clean. When you have a gold plated engine it is much easier to keep clean. Gold plating is resistant to dirt (24 carot is pure gold and more pure the better the anti reactive nature), so there is no problem with corrosion and other engine grime! It’s a good reason to upgrade the security on your car though and perhaps hire a 24-7 security team. If the boys down the pug are argueing over their red top, blue top and black top engines you can silence them all with this gold topped one.
The engine has been overlayed with 23.5 carat gold – not the sort of thing you find in your average Nissan Almera.

The MR2 with its mid mounted engine poses a number of problems, firstly we need adquete cooling and secondly the need to get nice cold air into the engine itself. It also looks pretty cool and gives the car a sporty appearance. Continue reading Mr2 roof mounted air intake

This started out as a standard 1966 Ford Anglia 105e Super. A car built for the masses and certainly became popular in its time.
