    With apologies in advance if this offends anyone or is not considered suitable I just couldn't help myself. I stole these shots off of the UK Kustoms website over here in England and have posted them on here cos quite frankly they dropped my jaw when I saw them.



    I have absolutely no information other than that it was built in the UK from a..... (wait for it) ........

    A 1989 CITROEN!!!! :eek:

    The letter G pre-fix on the license plate gives it away as 1989 because according to law over here, you can put a older license plate on a newer car but you can't put a newer plate on an old one.

    I will fully understand if you wanna close this thread but shit man, how much work has gone into that.
  2. Needs some dental work.

    Im not totally sure, sum proportion's missing....the front lights are HUGE!
    Rear bumper (Jag?) needs chrome, thena few more "corrections" and i would drive it!
    Its kinda kool, very Andy Sounders style (pre-tv whore i mean :D), when he used
    to do stuf like his Volvo and the 57 retractable.
    I bet they used the Citroen for the adjustable suspension!
    I'd love to c more, now i'll go look at the UKK site.
    Thanx Paul, if nothing else, it brought back some good memories!

  5. Ummm........errrrr..........................ummmm...........................

    There is a shit-tin of work in of those things you wonder WHY they even bothered??
    I appreciate the work though I mean its an 89 Citroen??

  6. It is a hell of a lot better lookin' than a stock Citroen

    Really great for two vampires on along trip with a lot of luggage.
  8. Umm, I just did a search. What type of 89 Citroen?

    I mean they are all fucking ugly and need crushing but I just want to know now.
    See what you have done to me? reduced to looking at Citroen's by choice on the net.
    Oh the humanity........

    I'm thinking, Batmobile, Green Hornet car, and a 59' Chev, compilation. A lot of work, for sure..I agree Citroen's are ugly..but.
  10. Almost identical, except for the grille teeth.;)

    Possibly one of these...

  11. You may find it odd, but we´re a little short on 57 Lincoln project cars over here. Can´t knock the guy for making use if what he had.
  12. Aaaaaahhh! my eyes!
  13. I'd roll it.
  14. I gotta agree use what you have. At least it is not standard. At least with a citroen you have the advantage of being able to drop it in the weeds thanks to the hydradoodamatic suspension.

    The comment about my eyes was directed at the standard one. Different size lights, different grill teeth and lose the small continental kit might help. Maybe chromed bumpers would help as well.

    Looks to me like part 57 Lincoln and part 59 chevy; but wtf ? Too unique to crush but should not allowed to ever happen again in this century.
  16. Direct from the Bat Cave to a custom car show near you. Be very afraid!!!!

    BTW. Since when was an over the top custom a bad thing? If one of the legends of the US custom world had built it, you guys would be on your knees praising the brilliant design and craftsmanship.
  17. Sometime you just gotta ask "why?"

    I would drive it, and on somedays I would dress up like a superhero and drive it.
  22. Ahhh, yes. Rules, the Regiment and common sense are things that seldom come together with any degree of intellect, kinda like the design work on this car.....

  23. Picture won't open here at work- I just hope I can get home to see this before the thread gets closed!

    not a big fan of the front end but I love the rest of it. Thanks for posting the pics.

    Happy Trails,

    I went to the UKK site but its very, and mean very, plain.
    No pictures of anything! just a couple of background ones, and they have
    some rather brilliant rides! Koppa K is one of'em in case you guys are wondering
    who the hell are the UK Kustoms.
    Anyway, couldnt find shit about it.
    Any British rodder offering his knowledge to the masses. Im really curious, and now
    i also wanna see what else the UKK are up to.
  27. Totally agree - its quite a leap isn´t it!

    the project. I know i would have done it.

    Sorry, but there is not a single Citroen body part on that car. I think they probably used the driveline in it (which was a Maseratti engine on some years) and some suspension stuff and they had a title for the donor car so that's the title they used.
