E standing for electric...that must not have been the original idea.
Shock! It takes an individual without a soul to commit such a sacrilege.
It looks good apart from the dash, which is hideous and certainly goes like the clappers. However, to me they managed to decapitate everything E-type's about. Sorry to say this one's like watching the paint dry.
And hey! Don't get me wrong, I'm all for electric cars. They are the future of personal transportation.
Wow I'm electrified...wait a minute was that electrocuted? Anyway awesome!!!
Rover P6 Cabriolet & Coupé
Most people never quite realized just how advanced a design Rover P5 really was, a British equivalent to Citroen DS if you will.
Would have been lovely as a convertible
The starting point of the massive project of this rotten -59 Caddy.
I got the car in 2008 and after almost 7-years of restoration it starts to look what I wanted. See the complete restoration story from here: garage59.blogspot.com
O caddy, o daddy! O sweet god of motor cars there is no cadillac Cadillac is just one of the alltime great American words and I wish I wish I wish I wish your daddy was here to see it!

Slowly but steadily it comes together. Some progress picturess added.
Secret Mercedes Collection
Lucky me, I was invited to take a peak at a private Mercedes collection in an undisclosed location. This collection is the real mc coy, all the cars have been restored single-handedly by the owner –a true old school enthusiast.
I could see myself in one of these -quite easily.
Gottlieb, You seem to be able come up with a most amazing stuff. Keep us posted!
Ford Cortina 1500GT & Lotus 'Replic...
Here's a little something I managed to pick up in a barn the other day. A genuine 1500GT Cortina taken off the road in 1979 due to light front end collision. The other car's a Lotus Cortina 'replica' -replica being a strong word as it' more of a look-a-like.
You might be fooled to think AC 289 Sports -Cobra to you guys over the pond although it could not be called that here in the UK because of legal issues, would have been flamboyant enough to most people. But not so to Tara Browne, 21 year old heir to the Guinness fortune!
Old Transit van, floats and Lycoming off a Cessna -et Voila!
Rehabbing a 220Sb w111
Strictly speaking, I wasn't in the market for another classic car, quite the opposite. In fact, trying to down size and focus... However, when the opportunity knocked my door in form of a 220Sb stored in an old industrial building for a decade or two, I couldn't resist...

Starstruck Mercedes 300SL
It seems 300SL Mercedes was the weapon of choice for many of Hollywood's stars in the late 50's early 60's Or was it just a promotional gimmick by the factory, go figure.. click on to see more stars in 300SL Mercedes.
Here at Hemmels, we've always admired the work of the trail-blazing Mercedes-Benz marketing team from the 1960's. With the launch of the W 113 series in 1964, Mercedes advertising took a step-up and helped drive sales of the W 113 series, including the 230, 250 and 280SL models respectively to 48,91
Very interesting design. You could almost say it makes this unique and rare car even more so. Do you know which company built the body?
The body was made in Finland on a chassis delivered by BMW. 328 chassis used to come with the wings, cowl, bonnet and grill. As "Carrozzeria"s were few and between in Finland those days it is likely the body was by a company specializing commercial vehicl
Peter's Ferrari gang at the time consisted of Tommy Rettig of Lassie fame( in the background), Stephen Mitchell etc... Stephen used to have a 250GTO which nowadays belongs to Ralph Lauren's collectionof static pieces -nuff said?
BMW 2002 was a pretty quick little car to begin with in its day. However that did not stop from Alpina in Buchloe from offering an extensive go-faster kit for amateur racers as well as aspiring professional teams.
Ford GT70, a direct descendent of the famous Ford GT 40, was designed by Len Bailey. It was a mid engined two seater sports car which had a steel fabricated box frame chassis and a one piece fibreglass body.
