What has been seen cannot be unseen.
Well executed though.
Or should be.

Batmobile comes to mind.
Wrong color though.

That's one way of devaluing your car...to each his own I guess.

You needed to remove the stock jaguar tail lights.

Well, it could have been worse - lowered and 21 inch rims.

I had that same thought, given Batman's propensity to wear purple tights and hang out with a younger man in too-tight yellow hot pants . . .

A well-executed, however ill-advised, modification!

I own both a Jaguar and a 60's Cadillac...even a F-150, but never in my life have I had the urge to splice them together! I've seen the S-Type front clip graft onto a F-150, now THIS!

In both cases, the body work is fantastic.

Frankly, I like that better than the Cadillac tail fins on the XK8!
