Tat? Or talent?

Now stop screaming, throwing things at your monitor or launching your iPhone into the nearest stream. Calm now? Right grab some perspective, yes those are Range Rover lights attached to a Japanese import Mitsubushi wagon but that’s no reason to deride is it – this really is a work of art.

Why though? Maybe the car in question had an uneconomical ‘tap. front and rear and was restyled, rather than repaired. Perhaps as a homage to Mentley Insanne, the (Montego glazed!) Bentley built by Kustom guru Andy Saunders. Or maybe the owner built it because he could and a bloody effective job he did too.

Me? I rather like it and would be tempted to ROVER badge it, fit some discreet alloys and surplus aerials before cruising round MIRA and Lode Lane… but then I’m a wicked person.

  1. It might not be to everyone’s taste, but it looks like a well-done and professional conversion. I quite like it.

    I’ll keep a look out for it on my travels, as going by the shops in the background, the car was snapped in Leigh-on-Sea, which isn’t a million miles away from where I currently reside 😉
