The Start of something new

While Infinite Garage has been on a bit of a hiatus as life has kept me busy I’m happy to announce that I’m back at it again. With a whole heap of events lined up to attend and a really interesting build project to document this year promises more regular updates.

In the meantime I’ll leave you with that cool Willys from the early days of IG and may it serve as a hint on what is to come.

Willys

See you at the shows! and remember to keep it shiny side up.

The Fun Run with the White Hall Drag O Way boys

I go to a car cruise. Sorry for the long hiatus but real life is seriously messing with my car time. It’s not that I don’t go to events it’s the whole processing and uploading the photos part that I’m terrible at finding time for. So here’s a bit of a photo dump from the White Hall Drag O Way fun run.

2016 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X Final Edition

Well, the boys and girls at Mitsubishi have screwed together a final edition of the Lancer Evolution. The drumroll has been played and there’ll be no more evolving of this species.2016_Lancer_Evolution_FE_20

In 1993, Mitsubishi made a decision that now seems obvious in hindsight. They moved the engine and drivetrain from their all-wheel-drive rally hero, the Galant VR4, into the smaller and lighter body of the Lancer. In the process, they created a sensation. Both on the rally stage and on the road.

As the years went by, the Evolution lived up to its name, it evolved. The car went through many changes as time went by. Technologies were added, changed and removed, engines were turned around 180 degrees and the base car supplying the bodyshell even changed a couple of times.

Impressive highlights of the Evolution’s evolution include the straight-line stonk of the Evo III (thanks 16G Turbocharger), the corner exit speed of the Evo IV GSR (introduction of Active Yaw Control), the raw, brutal, racecar-like abilities of the Evo VI.5 Makinen Edition, and the melding of livability with outright handling in the Evo VIII.

In 2007, the latest (and now last ever) Mitsubishi Evo iteration hit the road with the X.

2016 Ford Falcon XR8 Sprint

“Kick her in the guts Barry! She’s the last of the V8s”. A classic line delivered in the dystopian Mad Max. A line that references a supercharged V8 Falcon. The last one in fact. When it was originally written, it posed a far flung future in which Aussie muscle cars were celebrated for their rarity. Well, with Holden and Ford both set to close their doors, we’re here now.

So how does the reality live up to the fiction? Answer : This is the best V8 Falcon ever.
