    Aw c'mon - MGB lever shocks last at least 10K miles! If on smooth roads anyway...

    But those are the type with wooden guts, which apparently goes soft with excess wiping.
    My question is Lignum Vitae?

    The only time I saw a set up close the wood in question was beech.

    Beech is easy to source, thank you.

    (I wonder why they chose that?)

    Back to pics- you do not see many pre-war Aston Martin saloons.
    I remember seeing this one a few years ago- original paint, and frankly rather scruffy with a few rust holes.

    After an Aston saloon, how about a 3 litre Bentley saloon, being exercised at Prescott?

    Time for another bitsa horror!
    This appears to have a Jaguar engine- the chassis could be Sherpa van, and bodywork by Bodger Bill.
    Sorry. :-)

    A straight front axle, 3 giant SU's, a blower and eight side pipes suggests something other than Jaguar, no?

    Maybe a fire truck...

    According to the DVLA, it's a Jaguar(!)
    Only six side pipes, but whether a six or twelve cylinder I don't know.
    Bet the fuel consumption is as horrific as the appearance.

    The work of the Blastelien? Brothers is really wonderful. They have a good eye for design and visual balance. The ones shown here don't measure up anywhere close.

    The Decoliner is a GMC motorhome. I had one of those for 10 years. Very interesting design and fun to drive.

    True - but did yours have a flybridge you could drive from?

    Peace,
    You Guys Are KILLING Me! Hahaha.

    P.S. I still dread opening this thread every time, for fear I will fall in love all over again with some other new to me bizarre and ungainly machine from when...

    About time for a Fiat- I wanted one of these when I was 21, but my dad wouldn't put birthday money towards it because it was a foreign car.

    Michelotti is credited with the design.

    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.
