Darth Vader wasn’t known for dispensing pleasantries, but he had kind words for notorious bounty hunter Boba Fett: “I see why they call you the best bounty hunter in the galaxy.” Tripp Ferrer captured some of that ruthlessness in his Morris Minor build, as its color scheme draws cues from the famed Mandalorian warrior.

Unlike Fett, though, this isn’t a clone job. Power comes from a Chevy 350 paired with an equally iconic Turbo 350 gearbox. The stance is pure retro gasser. Cooling issues plagued its Challenge debut, but like Fett, this one constantly makes us feel like it’s lurking in the shadows.

I keep thinking there's going to be several paragraphs telling us about the car but it's the same content I just read...
