After a year-long love affair with J.Waz, ILL-513 is going to a new home, but staying in the family.
From it’s beginnings as a Primal Garage car, it has been through a lot with us
It’s had more than it’s fair share of track-days, mostly with the most ruthless NA exhaust system known to man
And always flat on the ground
As it heads off into the more than capable hands of Beau’s brother Harley, whose skill is evident by the cars he’s built
The thought of where it may go next is terrifying. Arches are already cut out of the front, ready for Tubs.
And LCAs modded
Bring on the automotive slaughter
For some, a project car is more than just a collection of popular parts and highly regarded brand names.
Something beyond the urge to impress one’s peers
…Or even give thought as to what they think.
It’s the creation of something deeply personal; an unashamed addiction to pouring one’s character into otherwise sterile nuts and bolts.
This is the compulsion of tool man Beau Jones, whose world famous Trueno made way for this S13 build just a couple of short months ago.
As you can see he’s been hard on the spanners since, thrashing away to make things like a tubbed front end, S15 SR20 and custom wheel arch flares happen. With 15x10s and a roll cage in the works it’s shaping up to be a serious bit of gear.
But for Beau this project is simply about enjoying the car life more. While the Trueno was purpose built and buck wild, the low-slung S13 will be the type of car that’s just as at home cruising to the beach on a lazy Sunday arvo as it is grabbing thirds on Eastern Creek on a furious Friday night.
After all that’s what we’re here for, right?
Special thanks to Matthew Mead for the photography
Biggie’s 180 is back; after a mammoth weekend in the workshop the Type X is now boasting Driftworks knuckles all around and less ground clearance than ever. As you can see he’s also tubbed the thing and got rid of everything engine bay related that doesn’t help with ripping skids. As yet untuned, the freshly run in and forged SR should see upwards of 350hp thanks to a 264+GTRS combo.
UPDATE: Hit and Run has MOVED to a new domain, all the new shit will be HERE from now on.
