Project Binky

Two blokes, in a workshop, an ancient Austin Mini, a not-quite-so ancient Toyota Celica, lots of machine tools, welding, and top-notch engineering.

Bad Obsession is not a rubbish rock band, but a small company that specialises in making small cars go very fast. Project Binky is about as mad as it comes: shoehorn the motor, transmission and four wheel drive from a Celica GT4 into a stock Mini.

It sounds quite dull, but the video is well edited, the presenters show what they’re up to in a humorous but instructive way, and the engineering on show is remarkable.

Aside from the out takes and Q&A shows, there are four videos so far. I’ve subscribed so I can keep up with this fascinating project.
