Land Rover Monthly - - [ebay Car Challenge SIIA] -

The third and fi­nal win­ner of the ebay Car Chal­lenge was Carl Pickard of Southamp­ton, who took just 16 weeks to con­vert this 1974 VW Camper from a shabby flower-power hippy car­rier to this striking fu­tur­is­tic cop­per and black road war­rior.

The spec­tac­u­lar Bay Win­dow Shorty camper now hun­kers down on 18-inch spin­ning wheel rims and glows men­ac­ingly in the dark thanks to its LED light­ing rig. It is also equipped with a mon­strous sound sys­tem.

Carl ad­mits he’s had to do “a lot of mod­i­fi­ca­tions to make sure ev­ery­thing fit­ted per­fectly,” adding that the end re­sult has been “a real eye-opener and a huge chal­lenge, but re­ally en­joy­able.”

But what we want to know is where he buys the gi­ant slabs of cheese needed to put the side-mounted cheese grater to good use.
