Lamper or Contamper? 1960 Lincoln Continental Camper Conversion

Yes, indeed, this is a 1960 Lincoln Continental with a full camper on the back. Supposedly, some Ford truck parts might have been used underneath, but the seller isn’t sure. We just know it’s got massive potential and it has a toilet. Continue reading Lamper or Contamper? 1960 Lincoln Continental Camper Conversion

StudeBlazer: Studebaker Lark on Blazer K5 Frame

May Cause Heart Attacks in Purists: 1968 Jaguar E-Type

Yes, you are looking at an E-Type, or what’s left of one. Apparently, it is owned by a shop owner/car builder whose friend rolled his E-Type 2+2. So, purists can relax a bit, as 2+2 E’s frankly aren’t that good looking AND this one was damaged. The 2+2 roots also explain the long wheelbase.
