The oil tanker Amoco Cadiz ran aground on Portsall Rocks, 5 km (3.1 mi) from the coast of Brittany, France, on 16 March 1978


The Decoliner by Blastolene based on the chassis of a 1973 GMC Motorhome and a cab from a 1955 White COE, that entire body was hand-fabricated from aluminium by the talented team over at Blastolene Cars. Now I'm in the mood for a road trip, an "Art deco" road trip.
