I'm back at work on the car after a trip overseas, and currently setting up my garage for the body work stage to proceed, so work should be progressing rapidly soon. I can't wait to have the car back together again...

A crazy Gatebil-style S13 Nissan Silvia built to four-wheel drift. It features a set-back Chevy LS V8 with twin superchargers and a custom four-wheel drive setup. The front blower is mounted backwards and has its internals reversed so air goes in the bottom, gets compressed, and comes out the top and into the second blower mounted normally on top of the motor. I think it makes for a mean-looking beast head poking through the hood, and should have the performance to back up the looks. The radiator is in the rear, fed by the roof-mounted scoop, so when the one-piece front is removed you’d get an uninterrupted view of the front blower on its cantilevered brackets, and also of the front transaxle, and custom-built and white-painted suspension and spaceframe.
Another potential future build concept. I really like this machine, it would look rad as hell for real I reckon.

Mashine is a project myself and good friend and fellow designer and car nerd Ash Thorp are working on. A way to indulge our crazy car fuelled plans and make big things happen in the future… Keep your eyes peeled!

Some of my favourite machines from a recent trip to the states.
It was the trip of a lifetime in general, and for cars particularly. The pits at Laguna Seca melted my brain. Watching and hearing (and feeling, when walking the bridges) the vintage Trans-Am cars race and get sideways out of corners was pure joy. Pebble Beach Concours was fantastic, I fell in love a few times with Italian red heads. I guess I'd pay 10 million for one too...
The black SS Camaro was my road-trip machine.
