This one-off Vignale Corvette was built for the 1961 Salon de l'Automobile in Paris. It was based on a 1959 or 1960 Corvette chassis, commissioned by Gordon Kelly (USA). Kelly was a Wisconsin-based designer who had the wish to design his own sports car and so in the early '60s had traveled to Europe to make his dream come true. He selected Vignale to rebody the car. The car received a final paint job in 2004 under the now-deceased Kelly. Ownership went to John Breslow (USA).

Michelotti Jaguar D-Type

It’s not the first time a car with an unusual history intrigues me. But mostly they are specialist cars that raise not more then an eyebrow to so-called connoisseurs. This time however it is an unloved Jaguar D-type. Really.

I am not a natural flatterer, I like to think that I "tell it like it is", politely I hope. So when I tell you that I am very impressed by the contents of your website, it is just not English politeness. I of course love the subject matter but you deal with it in an energetic and respectful manner. I am overwhelmed by the research that has gone into compiling the list of coachbuilders/bodybuilders for Europe and North America. I have never heard of the vast majority of them. Congratulations on an excellent website.
