Awesome Garage 54

Widebody Lada Conversion

Widebody Lada Conversion

The guys from Russian car hacking channel Garage 54 have outdone themselves with this crazy build. After cutting the driver’s side off one Lada and the passenger side off another, they tinkered with the mechanicals and welded them together. The result is a ridiculous extra-wide Lada that needs two drivers to steer. Part 2 here.

The guys at Russia’s Garage 54 have done some pretty insane things by hacking apart cheap cars. In this experiment, they wanted to see if they could harness the torque generated by the axle of a LADA and fling objects with a lever attached to its rear wheel. We bet it would be more fun to launch the car.

The guys from Russia’s Garage 54 are usually trashing cars for fun and profit. But in this video, they decided to build a form of transportation from scratch – a flying carpet-slash-hovercraft. It lifts off the ground using 10 car heater fans powered by a pair of big batteries. It looks like a ton of fun gliding across the snow.

Hydro Dipping a Whole Car

(PG-13: Language) Hydro-dipping is the process of adhering a film to the surface of an object by floating it in a bath of water and adding an activation agent. We’ve seen it done to shoes, guitars, and helmets, but the guys at Russia’s Garage 54 tried to dip an entire car. Unfortunately, even the best-laid plans can go very wrong.

Now that the guys at Russia’s Garage 54 are done with their headlight-covered Lada, they decided to remove the bulbs from the compact car. Of course, now they’ve got a whole bunch of holes in the sheet metal, so they decided to go all-in on the look, resulting in a car that looks like a block of Swiss cheese on wheels.
