    To get more boot space? And no I wouldn't.

    As for the Grange Discovery that's wrong on every level.

    Example 1 is horrifyingly bad.
    As for driving it, not a chance I'd even get in the passenger seat.

    I almost added a like to this post when I realised it could be construed as liking the car rather than the comment. :rolleyes: (fixed it for you too).

    I've seen a few of these same conversions on tinterweb. Possibly some company was offering conversions or people saw the first one, thought it looked great and decided to make a copy.:rolleyes: I hope no nice '59 caddies were harmed in making them, but the yanks seem quite content to butcher nice original cars.

    It all probably started off with something simple like red trim on the registration plate, a rear window spoiler and bright red alloys......:)
