We’ve made it to June, and with it comes the long-awaited summer heat. The snow, for most of us in the Northern hemisphere, has melted away, and droves of tourists now flock to the closest shores to enjoy the best weather the season has to offer.

Few YouTube videos/series captivate us for more than a few minutes at a time, let alone a staggering 300 minutes spread across twelve episodes; however, the duo at Bad Obsession Motorsport from South Shropshire had managed to do just that. “Project Binky,” as they call it, has been chronicled in their YouTube series over the past few years, and as far as we can tell, is finally nearing completion.

Behind the tinted glass of the Frank Monise Motors lobby, there are some not-so-subtle hints that ‘Monise’ (pronounced moe-neece) is not your average shop. For starters, the walls are lined with photos, some recent, and others older than the business itself, which began here in Southern California back in 1948. Vintage race posters featuring a number of Monise race cars fill in the extra space, and a number of trophies sit perched on shelves.
