L.A. Quintessential: The Cadillac Ghia

This is the 1953 Cadillac Ghia. South-Asian royalty Aly Khan purchased this particular model in an attempt to recapture the attention of his wife actress Rita Hayworth. That may have worked on us, but this ride didn’t have that affect on her. The two split up permanently, but Hayworth did keep the car. The car now belongs to the Petersen Automotive Museum and it’s rumored that it was originally an appliance white. Now Petersen has sprayed the Ghia in a darker, richer color to emphasize its brightwork and elegant form. No matter what color you paint it, this caddy stays true to its Los Angeles roots. Get the full story, right here:

This Is What Happens When You Combine A WW2 Tank And A Chevy V8

It seems like less and less people are building their own cars as time goes on. It’s a talent that few have, and those that do have it should be celebrated. Meet Ontario, Canada resident Shawn Cormier. Shawn created the “Tankenstein” using a WW2 tank chassis (it has the bullet holes to prove it) and a 305 small block V8 engine. The total horsepower is around 175, and the car can only do about 50 mph. But hey, it cost Cormier less than $2k to build, and from the looks of it, we’d say it was worth it. Take a look at Tankenstein for yourself, right here.
