This series of videos (there are 8 so far and it's still ongoing) is simply gobsmacking if you admire sheer inventive improvisation in a construction project. Take one dilapidated Mini 1000. Now try and shoehorn a Toyota Celica ST185 GT4 200bhp turbocharged engine and four wheel drive system into it. Impossible? You bet! Now sit back, relax and watch them make it happen with tools, garage, fabrication and humour like you've never seen. I guarantee your jaw will drop on a few occasions as seemingly impossible hurdles just get solved over cups of tea and creative thinking.
There was the lunatic who put a Buick V8 in a Mini many years ago No room in the front so they put it in the back Think it was then a 2 seater after that

Great video My brother has a ornignal Mustang that was in similar rust condition but done all the body work to it, still loads more to do but a real labour of love. In the past he put a 1200cc motorcycle engine into a mini inproved suspension etc, boy that had some crazy acceleration
Music is where I find my solace Nothing is more beautiful than a guitar, save perhaps two. – Fredric Chopin

While we're waiting for the next episode of Project Binky, try this.
It's a talk by David Vizard on the A-series engine. I bought his book back when I was 20 and it was my bible while I owned a Mini. However, this video is a lesson on engine design of any type. I have learned a great deal from watching it.
