    Classic Hybrid Contraption

    I heard about this on the radio this morning:

    1959 Jaguar XK150 3.4 Foxbat Sports Estate

    "A Jaguar enthusiast who wanted to fit his two dogs in his cramped sports car found a novel solution - by fusing a Morris Minor to the back of it.
    The result is a bizarre-looking creation made up of the two cars morphed together, with the sleek Jaguar XK150 front being matched with the rear of a Morris Minor Traveller.
    The combination has led to a vehicle with an elegant front and a classically ugly but practical boot on the back":

    Owner who couldn't fit dogs in sports car fuses it to something a little more downmarket | Mail Online

    Ok, probably has the Jag & Moggy purists red with rage but I like it!

    It's being auctioned by Bonhams at the Goodwood Revival on Sep 16 but you'd need around £30,000+ to secure it:

    That is a quite stunning car...YES, really!

    Personally, I think that it's so strange that it is beautiful.....if I had £30k, I'd buy it!

    I wonder what would be cheaper to insure - a Morris with a Jag front end or a Jag with a Morris backend!
