Big Thanks to Erin Clare for rocking the vocals (erindotmusic)
Also something to note around Mighty Car Mods: we are normal guys and are not trained mechanics. We like to make interesting car mods and show you how we've gone about it, but we can't promise that anything we show you will work for your particular car, or that you won't harm yourself, someone else, your car or your warranty doing it. Please be safe, be responsible and unless you know what you're doing, do not fool around with very serious machinery just because you've seen us make it look so easy. Talk to a qualified mechanic if you are in any doubt.

  • The finale of the MIRA features a brand new song by MOOG titled 'Bullet' Featuring Erin Clare (erindotmusic) Thanks for supporting indie music - We hope you like it!

    • Song purchased. It seems to embody the spirit of the relationship I've had with my first car. I've owned it for 17 years, Modified it and driven it every single day since I was 16.

  • It's funny that in Greek Mira (Μοίρα) means Fate, so i guess getting that little nugget in ur hands was a little bit of fate 😂

  • I really enjoyed this whole series from start to finish. It's really very technical, almost building a car yourself. You can learn something from this and it is often fun too. I like Daihatsu, had three Daihatsu Cuores and a Daihatsu Copen. Never had a problem with it, fuel-efficient cars too. Unfortunately Daihatsu is no longer imported to Europe, 2013 was the end. Why, I don't know. You still see a lot of Cuores driving in the Netherlands. Thanks guys, I'll keep following you!

  • Know whatd be super cool? Of you ruined the experience of driving the car by swaping with a turbo k series and honda awd set up and jack it up to like 400kw. Itd fit, just saying.

  • I think swapping a hayabusa engine into it would not be stupid. Nearly 173 horses, also turbo if im correct and it's a 1.3. Overall I think a engine from a motor with high horsepower would be great into that mira

  • Jeez Marty, your monologue to this video, and as a finale to the story of your dream, was EPIC. What you said was inspiring, and with Moog's soundtrack/song was just fantastic. You guys really did show the love when making this video, and obviously making this Mira. Thanks for a terrific car build series - loved it!

  • Chuckle every time I hear you call it a "NUGGET" here in the States it can have a derogatory meaning, such as horse manure for a person that's being just really a nasty person. You should think about investing money in a car lift. I worked for 10 years off the floor, I'll never do it again.
