Chop Shop - London Garage S2 e8 p5
Bernie, Leepu and the Chop Chop team have landed a new commission actor and
comedian Johnny Vegas. He wants a mobile volcano in which he can play
batman to solve all the world's ills and which will make him feel as if
he's sitting on his gran's lap after she's eaten nine chilli peppers. Other
than that, it's got to be a classic-shaped Volkswagen Golf - albeit an
uber-powerful four wheel drive one (Johnny already drives a Golf R32). Chop
Shop mechanics and panel beaters, Julian, Lee and Shaun embrace the project
with wild optimism - sourcing the engine and four-wheel drive running gear
from a 300hp Subaru Impreza, the like of which has found fame on the world

Lithuanian Turns CL Mercedes Into Red Menace
Though companies like BRABUS will take your Mercedes CL and mold it into a
V12-powered monster, they'll only tweak the exterior so much. And what's
the point of tweaking a car if you can't drop wheels on it that are many
orders of magnitude larger than the stock ones, or swap the grille out for
something that looks like it was taken off of a Freightliner? If you want
that level of customization you'll have to skip the Germans and go straight
to the Lithuanian, specifically this lithuanian, Whether you love it, hate
it or are afraid of it, photos of the process.
