The Early Years

Knowledge versus age - a phrase that is not tossed around all that often but accurately describes the talents of Nick Mamchych.  Just as soon as Nick
began to walk he was already shadowing his father, always asking the question “why?” and absorbing knowledge and techniques in design and
fabrication that would deem very useful in years to come. In fact, his dad recalls; “Nick’s first experience with power tools was around 4 years old.  He
asked me to set him up with a drill and screws after finding some pieces of plywood and casters.  Nick took it upon himself to build his first go cart”.

Budding Creativity

While he was involved in sports, like most other kids, Nick was also developing his artistic and fabrication abilities.  This provided him with the skill set
to tackle more challenging design projects.  Art and design can be expressed and presented through a variety of mediums.  In high school, Nick’s
grandfather gave him a 1945 9N Ford farm tractor to ‘fix up’.  Over two years of late nights Nick restored the tractor, but not after completing his
homework first.  This, however, cannot be contrasted by any other restoration.  The 9N was taken to an entire new level of showroom condition.  
Maintaining explicit attention to every detail, each part on the 9N was smoothed and finally finished off with a metallic silver fade paint job with candy
apple red accents.  Unfortunately, Nick’s grandfather passed away before having the opportunity to see the completed masterpiece.  It’s a bittersweet
memory for Nick as he had to sell it to pay for school.

Living the Dream

Nick enrolled into a 5 year Mechanical Engineering and Management program at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario.  It was in his first year that
Nick decided to apply what he was learning to design and build a custom cycle car.  However, after presenting the idea to his farther, a suggestion was
posed to “do the job right’ by taking a more serious approach to his hobby and build a custom vehicle.  This exposed two avenues for consideration: the
first, to locate a classic/muscle car and modify it to his liking or the second, to design and build a custom ride from the ground up.  Although the first
option appeared easier and faster, Nick wanted to create something unique.  In turn, Nick sat down with his dad and began merging fighter jet
influences with two generations of automotive styling cues through sketches to express a 60’s inspired elegant 'supercar' with a modern twist.  Over the
next 8 years and extensive hands-on training from his dad, Nick developed and perfected core competencies in areas that included renderings,
component modeling, metal fabrication, welding, bodywork, electrical design/wiring and painting.  The breathtaking and inspiring completion of this
heartfelt accomplishment appropriately named “Rhythm” - often mistaken for a factory released prototype, lead Nick to launch iNVision Prototypes in
2008 as an automotive design, metal shaping and custom car studio.
