    Norman Timbs Special

    [​IMG]

    Timbs was a mechanical car engineer from Los Angeles with experience in building cars from scratch, and he built his one-off special for around $10,000, taking inspiration from the Auto Union racers of the 1930's. The heavily streamlined car uses a 1948 Buick straight-8 engine, and is reportedly capable of 120mph. It was left to rot in the desert before being discovered in 2002, and restored to its glorious best.

    Morris Minor panel truck, the panels were the same as the pick up trucks from the cab up. From the rubber gasket at the rear of the cab back the pick up had a rear cap the panel trucks got the panel box.

    Another older Morris Minor panel with rubber fenders and separate headlights built for British telephone, talk about a niche marker vehicle.
