A chopped 1952 Vauxhall from the movie Nightbreed







Out of all the Euro customs I have seen, I like this one the best body wise.

Found this on facebook:
Here is the story of Paul Bacon's "Bat Car" as taken from the UK's Western Park Gazette...

Meet the Bat Car
19-10-2010

It might look more at home in Bruce Wayne's Bat Cave, but there's a shark like, sleek, black machine gliding around the roads of Western Park.
The Dualatron with its smooth 50's super car lines is the brainchild of local man, Paul Bacon.
Paul, a former Braunstone lad, who now lives in West Leicester, originally had the idea of building his own custom car when he was a boy. 'I love making things and I've been thinking about building my own car since I was ten. The design was inspired by a 1960's Kustom car called the Golden Sahara. I took the idea and wanted to design and build a progression of this great car.'
Two and a half years ago Paul came across a battered old Citroen BX which he bought for 200.00. Then for the next 18 months he spent every spare moment on his front drive, working through the wind, rain and cold. He braced the chassis, put in a steel framework, re-sculpted the body with fibre glass and built new doors and interior. Paul even made the steering wheel 'In fact the only thing I didn't make is the rear screen and the instrument cluster!'
Luckily, Paul had tolerant neighbours during the build, 'I must live on the most understanding street in the world. The neighbours loved it. Kids, old ladies, everyone was popping over to take a look!'
Stunning as Paul's creation is, he has managed to upset certain petrol heads in the custom car fraternity. 'All of a sudden, pictures of it have appeared all over internet chat rooms and Facebook. It caused ructions in America because it's basically a front wheel drive Citroen, not a rear wheel drive muscle car. I even had one person saying it should be crushed, but he's since apologised! Now I'm getting hundreds of positive comments, but I'm still staggered at all the interest.'
Paul is already thinking about his next project. 'I'm going to build the car out of the Jetsons, based around a BMW.' He said with a slightly demented gleam in his eye.
He will - and it will probably fly as well.

Nice take on the Jag. Back in '69 I helped swap a 425 Buick Wildcat powertrain into a Jag sedan of similiar vintage. The jag drive shaft had the same splines as the GM talishaft and the big move in the front end was to swap a set of Chevelle front coils for the Jag's, because the Buick engine was lighter, and your Chevy would be even lighter. The car looked stock, but was a lot of fun to drive.

Jag used GM transmissions at one time.
Probably the most reliable part of the car.
