the foxbat

Those who love both dogs and sports cars often find that their two passions can't exist together in perfect harmony. A man named Geoffrey Stevens thought differently, and in the 1970s, he decided to build a car that would allow him to prove his point. We're not going to speculate here that drugs were involved in this decision, but it was the '70s after all...

The resulting car is called, somewhat appropriately, the Foxbat, and it's the unholy union of a 1959 Jaguar XK150 and a Morris Minor Traveller. Mr. Stevens was able to enjoy the driving entertainment provided by his XK150, while also taking in the company of his beloved Labradors.

The Foxbat is now for sale through Bonhams, and it will be auctioned off at the Goodwood Revival event on September 16th. Auction officials have estimated that it will fetch between $50,000 and $60,000.
