IT'S A BIRD! IT'S A PLANE! IT'S A DRAWING ROOM ON WHEELS! Well, she was a rusted-out hulk, ready for the scrapyard. Somehow, the Jaguar MK 10 that Sigurd Fluevog bought, back in 1965, had fallen into such egregious disrepair that any sensible person would write her off, without a second thought. But true Car Guys, like John and his late Dad, have a special kind of X-Ray vision that enables them to see the glory within (it works on people, too). Faced with the choice to scrap the classic or bring her back to life, John of course took the Fluevog route and committed to fully restoring this lost beauty, better than new. In the process, he couldn't resist getting out his sketchbook and ended up completely redesigning the car, inside and out. The frame was rebuilt; a V-8 engine was installed; the interior was transformed, the roof was lowered (think about that for a second: he chopped a classic Jaguar!). Two years and a whole lot of body work later, the world has one of the most original Fluevogs ever to strike the street (watch your local motorways - this automotive angel could descend upon a thoroughfare near you). You can't miss it - she's the car with the stitching on the side and Mister Vog behind the wheel. The one that almost looks like it could have come out of a Fluevog bag. All this is a very simple key to understanding John's mind: when he's drawing a shoe, he's thinking about a car; when he's drawing a car, he's thinking about a shoe. It's the Fluevog Continuum.
