    OMG thats quite a rot-box they started with there

    I love an engine transplant job, but never understood why people do it with a Mini. My favourite is still the Audi V8 Esprit:

    Toyota/Mini build

    For those who saw the project binky thread (can't find it now) about fitting the engine and running gear from a 4wd Toyota Celica into a Mini body shell, the third part has been published.

    A fascinating engineering project, and well produced!
