Chadbee Photography: The craziest vehicle I have EVER photographed.

A few months back I got an email from my editor over at Honda Tuning telling me he had an unusual car he wanted me to shoot for a magazine feature. My interest was peaked and I had to inquire what the project was, when he told me it was a Honda Insight with a J35 V6 VTEC engine from a Honda Odyssey swapped into the hatch area and converted to rear wheel drive my jaw almost crushed my desk. What neither one of us knew was while the car had already been approved for the feature that did not stop the owner from continuing to modify the car. By the time I contacted the guys over at Mini-Tec, the people responsible for this mad creation, they told me they had to get it retuned because they just added a 35R turbo to the swap! Within a few weeks the “Frank-Insight” was tuned and was now pushing 400whp to the rear wheels and ready for its feature shoot.


















Want the money shots? Check my latest blog post to see the engine bay/rear hatch set up:

Hahha I even told the owner, this was one of the hardest photoshoots I have ever done because the car is just not photogenic at all LOL

I still love it though, the owner designed and built the entire car himself. He is insane and highly skilled.

I've never really understood why people make ugly cars fast...I mean if you have enough money and time I figure you would put that kind of set up on something that's visually stimulating, or heck even decent-enough looking. Great shooting for what it is though man

I think the owner gets a kick out of it being what it is.....but making 400whp and weighing 1900lbs. The whole sleeper thing I guess.
