1953 Alvis TA21

the Roller Rat

If that looks like a Rolls Royce grille, it is, but the rest is a custom build.  The engine is a Cadillac 506 cubic inch Big Block, transmission is a Cadillac turbo 400, suspension is from an Jaguar XJ6, and as a finishing touch there are 50 calibre machine guns each side of the engine (and loaded!). 

For lots more like this, see the book Alternative Drivestyles.
