Remember the scene from “The Muppet Movie” where the Electric Mayhem repainted Fozie’s car to help them hide out? Later they were able to blend in perfectly with a psychedelic rainbow soda pop ad. What are the odds! Well, what we have here is a Mercury Villager that would also fit right in, if you […]
To a certain type of person, this estate sale was the event of the season. If you were into drag racing, Indy cars, hot rods, or sci-fi movies, the estate sale at Dean Jeffries shop on Cahuenga Blvd was a place to score some mementos, random parts at below swap meet prices or pay your […]

Not a hell of a lot of information on this one, but lets go from what we can see. It looks like a 1st generation Honda Goldwing GL1000 front end, welded to a modified 70s Toyota pick up truck, powered by what looks to be a GM 2.8 FWD 60 degree V6 driver train from […]
Spotted this one over on the 24 Hours of Lemons forums, but its not getting the attention it deserves. Besides being a very rare (for the USA) 1957 British Ford Anglia wagon, it also features a full tubular header and a canvas sunroof over the entire passenger compartment! On top of all that it belonged […]
