Modified Cars

Some of our cars may:
     not keep up with traffic
     not keep up with our nemisis on the track
     not fully conform with our visions of beauty

Some of these concerns can be addressed. A 5 speed gearbox for the Minor. A few pieces of carbon fibre here and there to lighten the sprung weight or your Mini with just about every engine and suspension mod that can go along with it. Want pin stripes? Add them; while you're at it shave the door, boot and bonnet handles!

There are many things that bring delight to one and dismay to another.

What ever you have done or come across, send them into me!

Beep Beep


While riding in my Cadillac


What to my surprise


A little Nash Rambler was following me


About one third my size

Supercharged 1957 Nash Metropolitain

This Metropolitain has a limited edition B&M Forced Induction Supercharger on top of a 4.3 Liter Chevrolet Vortec V6. A Polished Shotgun scoop sits on top of the Weber carb. It has a D.U.I Ignition system. It also has a new 5 speed Borg Warner Trans. (It wouldn’t be a true Rat Rod if it didn’t have 3 pedals!!) The clutch and brake pedals are a floor mounted CNC system. The suspension is a Fatman Fabrications Mustang II front end with a narrowed Ford 9 inch rear with Strange SS axles and US Gears. Brakes are disc front and drum rear. Cooling is provided by a custom super cooler radiator and the car stays cool. The car is very light (they were only 1700lbs stock), and very fast! It has a lot of power.

The body was Chopped, Frenched, Shaved, and Flared. The wheel wells were modified, the rear window was replaced with a small oval and the seams have all been filled. It is not perfect but is very presentable.

I found this E-Bay auction early in March.

This is going to be a Bonneville Salt Flat Car

Tom Mackie of Saskatoon has gotten it out of the garage and is in the long process of building it up.

The best modification you could ever have.
This is on Ryan Adams' Mini Clubman


Tony Fox and Norm Mort have authored a book to help discern "modified" from the "real thing"!

For Stags, anyway

This, along with other titles from Veloce Publishing can help for other makes.

Buy one, buy two. It is available at Amazon, Chapters and finer bookstores everywhere.


This MGA looks like it has quite a future ahead of it
This was at Bronte in 2009





A 1950 Morris Oxford Woodie owned by Grant and Doreen Rae of Haliburton.
There is a little more to this than meets the eye


Transformers, more than meets the eye. Not quite.
This is "Spanky's Little Rascal", a rodded 1949 Thames Panel Van owned by Spanky Goodin of Keene, Ontario.





A couple of Minis get some better breathing
Top is Don Dickson's '68 Cooper S MkII
Bottom is Don Sobering's Cooper S


This is Tamer (Matthew Metwalli) next to his '76 Mini. This car is in a constant state of modification. If you blink, you could miss something.

This is Tamer's latest modification. A carbon fiber roof. The original steel roof weighed 25 lbs. This new composite roof weighed 5 lbs.








Colin Robinson's Drag Mini
V-8 up front, Tubbed in the back and there is barely enough room for him, let alone passengers


Matt & Colin West's 73 Stag
I can't figure out where they found this, but it does fit to a "T"
