Enjoying this guys channel at the moment. Taking wrecked cars and making them good or building monsters.

It's a bit bodge it at times and his garage work space looks like a shambles but he seems to know his stuff.

Only watched the GTR rebuild for now but the 240 v10 build is up next.

Not sure I believe the speedo readout, looks to be travelling a hell of a lot quicker than the numbers suggest.

Went to an early 2000s festival of speed and they had this and the Espace F1 going up the hill on the same day. Amazing to see!

To be fair the turn in looks far too good for an X5 tank, it's just the half lock steering angle around every corner that looked a bit loopy biggrin

I just hope manufacturers keep on doing stupid/amazing things like this!

Something a little different, a US recovery company with huge rotator truck. It’s a very impressive bit of kit, he says it would cost a million $ to replace.
From smashed up artics to cars in rivers, snow, and all sorts of problems he gets called out to. The videos are interesting because he films the whole thing from start to finish.
One I watched was a 3 part thing where they had find a hired van that had got stuck and been abandoned somewhere in the middle of a huge forest laugh
