There's something about a wildly unique build that just gets us going over here and today we're bringing you something that's definitely unique. Meet Don Abenante. Oh, and meet his '69 Camaro, pre-chopping it up to make room for a wild drivetrain. He's 30/m/FL (yeah, you just got A/S/L'd), a mechanical engineer and a big fan of old iron.  Oh, and you can't overlook the striking resemblance to Tony Angelo of Hot Rod Garage and Formula D fame.  Sorry Don, couldn't continue without pointing that out..... Enough of my dated corny jokes.  Let's let Don tell you a little bit...

So, you're shopping for an exhaust system or considering fabbing a custom exhaust for your car and you're debating between stainless steel or titanium.   But, what truly is the difference between the two materials?  Is it just appearance? Or is there truly a quantifiable difference in performance per dollar between the two materials? (Agency Power's beautiful Titanium exhaust for a Ferrari) First of all, titanium is beautiful.  There's no denying that.  But it comes with a hefty price increase over your typical stainless system.

If there's one thing that can be guaranteed about an experienced fabricator, it's that his or her signature becomes apparent throughout their work.   Fabrication is a precise art that involves both motor skill and intelligent design.  Through the development of these skills and pursuit of what an individual's idea of "good looking" is, a style appears. So what happens when a skilled fabricator builds furniture?  We took to Pinterest again specifically looking at tables built by fabricators and the results didn't let us down. This handful of images just barely scratches the surface of what we thought was awesome....

There are occasionally times while surfing the abyss that is the web, and particularly YouTube, that I get struck with the "We're not worthy" of Wayne's World.. This car is definitely inspires that feeling. This car started life as a 1970 Camaro SS in a pretty serious state of disrepair, but with damn good bones.  It came from a life of sitting in the desert getting baked and was starting to show rust both in the roof and floor pans.  No biggie, they're coming out. Now some of you may scream "Blasphemy!"  and "Why'd they hack up a good car?!"....

Today's shop feature is a pair of twin brothers, Jeremy and Cedric Tsing, who together run Brothers Lab in Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia. The guys were born in Tahiti and moved to Australia 20 years ago.  With a background in skateboarding and BMX in their youth, the transition to drifting and fabrication makes complete sense.   After 10 years of licensed plumbing, they got fed up with working for someone else and founded their shop. Both guys have their own personal drift cars and specialize in beefing up street cars for the rigors of hobby and competition drifting. Their latest...
