I first had the idea to build a boxer engine with a giant turbo.
Once I had the engine built, I put it in the smallest car I could find - a Fiat.
Since the FrankenTurbo engine looked monstrous, I decided to make the Fiat a ratrod.

The turbo tubing was made from spare parts and heat-bent plastic tubes.
The turbo itself was shaped from clay.

I brush painted the car with flat black and sanded off the paint to make it looked aged.

I printed an image of Yosemite Sam and glued it to the door. Seemed fitting.
