…It’s Tuner Tuesday: MAT’s Ferrari 308 GTB?

When you think of rally racing and rally cars, you probably don’t think of Ferrari’s prancing horse, but Makela Auto Tuning sure does, since they were the creators of this fantastic 1977 Ferrari 308 GTB FIA Group 4 rally car.

The process involved stripping the entire car down to its bare frame and then building it from the ground up using all new parts, and the end result speaks for itself.

Be sure to check out their site for more than 250 pictures that document the entire process and every step along the way.

…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Makela Auto Tuning’s 1929 Ford Model A?

1929 Ford Model A

A 1929 Ford Model A isn’t exactly the car that you expect to see for Tuner Tuesday, but when it’s been given a 250 HP rally-spec Cosworth engine for motivation, anything’s possible.

Built by Makela Auto Tuning, it’s basically a pristine condition classic with a few extra ponies added in for fun.

To handle the extra power, the original wood wheels were replaced with wood-look metal, and better seatbelts were installed to keep things under control should the going get tough, but besides that, it’s pretty much 1929 through and through.

What types of numbers are you looking at here?

How about five seconds to sixty and a top speed of 124 MPH?

Unique is one word for it. (Crazy is the other.)
