As we drove south on Chuckanut Drive, overlooking the waters that hold the San Juans, we came across this lovely militarian art car, lableled in stencil on the trunk “54 Buick Special P-40.”

The car also featured what I’d have to describe as ‘tail art,‘ and a front-facing fifty-caliber machine gun in the back seat, not clearly visible in my picture. Also not visible in my pix are the detailed additional rivets added to the skin of the car to make it look more like a vintage warbird.

Oddly, a year ago, on Chuckanut, I also photographed an extreme militarian conversion of a Porsche 911 4×4, this one without apparent armament, although shrunken heads were noted.
