This is a car I could see finding a place in the "Come on now" thread. But does it deserve it? I don't think so, I think it is friggin awesome! It looks like the real thing, I have never asked but it sure looks like a real Baja Racer to me!.

At least it's not another T-bolt "tribute" build. I guess it's a Galaxie anyway.

I saw a Jaguar XJS V-12 that had been converted. He called it a "Jagamino" and it was for sale on eBay about 5 years ago. It was somebody's project after the Jag was rear-ended and totaled by the insurance company. It was done quite well and looked like the last pic below.

These are a few pics of modified Jags that qualify for this thread.
This looks like crap.



This ute conversion actually looks good.

Typically built using a Sport Coupe.

That Jag reminded me of a artical I remember reading back in the 60's in Pop Mechanics. As I remembershortly after the late Bill Harrah took possession of his lattest Ferrari one of his employies wrecked it. After he settled down abit he had his restoration staff take one of the Ranch Waggoneers and_________!
