My god it's beautiful! I love every single part of this car. So tasteful and perfectly excecuted. I've always been partial to the FCs. Awesome work John.
This makes me so sad. I love that he was so down to earth and actually into cars rather than just play a character that is for the money involved. He will be missed forever and the mark he has left on the entire car community will be forever present. I read one of his quotes that made the sadness a little lighter.
"If one day the speed kills me, do not cry because I died smiling"

This event is genius. Wish something like this was possible stateside. Cars and Coffee events are fun but it would be even more fun to hear some of the cars tear up a straight, even if it was only to 65MPH.

Gotta read my friend, not just picture gaze!
Every time I see that red Vette I say to myself "damn!" I vote full feature on it, car is amazing. Is that mustang mid engine now?

The pinstripe character is awesome! That USDM converted Corolla is bad ass too, there is so much style over there. Someday Ill make a point to visit.

Nigel you are nothing short of a genius. When I attempt to imagine all the tiny little details of you building every aspect, I start to be impressed by how quick you puled it off. Everything on the truck came out awesome. Part of me is a little sad there will be no more build updates on it. Every good thing comes to an end, or gets finished in this case. You deserve every bit of attention and award you are going to receive. Time to build something else we can all admire!

Such a good read! Thanks Jonathan. It's amazing that turbos are so fascinating even when you look all the way back to the first ones being engineered. Then to see how far things have come. One car comes to mind, WEC Audi R18!

There is only one answer to this. CELICA! Even more so, the alltrac. They also need to participate in F1 and WRC again and regain the crowns they once held. Enough with the green grass eco bull. Go fast again!

Man! Whos running that joint? Power plant and drivetrain consists of some awesome ideas and possibilities. But please god I hope it doesnt look anything like that thing. We need the R&D guys of the late 80s and early 90s to come back!

Those tires hate life! Not only do they get burnt up by the beast of an engine, they also get fire spit at them from it. Love this car!!

This build is as awe inspiring as it gets. The time and effort you have taken is very impressive in itself. I've followed this build since the first post and still find it amazing in every way. I love how there is a characteristic present from every corner of the car scene. From your beautiful wheel choice, Hilux "chassis", and that AMAZING harness. Work of art my friend. Retail posters should be in your future. Keep it up

@rodrigolj Well said sir. Knowing or following Sennas career before or after the documentary does not make the man a lesser legend.
7 months, 2 weeks ago on Honda Recreates The Sound Of Senna
@Mike Peters You want a prize for being old enough to have witnessed Sennas races. Does this make you a more "true fan" compared to the 21 year old enthusiast that can identify a legend when he sees one? @Turbo beams AE86 nailed your post on the head.
This is amazing. Senna will always be the best and I love the mark he has left on every form of Motorsport. So much emotion in this video, I couldn't imagine being there to hear it live.
@Seeking Perfection Just saying to not be confined to the same make power plant. If the chassis brand has a bad ass engine that can work for a swap, such as your example drift car; by all means. But when you look at every single make including the same as the chassis to be swapped, options become amazing.

I voted variety, if it weren't for thinking outside the box most of the monster cars that exitst and drop jaws constantly wouldnt be present. An example would be the beautiful Delta with a 2J. Another would be a LSx swap into a FC chassis, not a specific car for this example but still a very good combination. Break out of the box people!
