While this might not be your ideal of the American shooting brake, it's certainly one take on the concept. For those of us living in the mid-south, it's probably the closest thing to perfection since a 1967 Mustang mounted on a lifted F-150 pickup frame.

Sure, it's highly impractical with most of the cargo area obstructed by cage tubing. And yes, it's based on an Army Blazer shell. But at the end of the day, you have a two-door, long-roofed, very quick sports car.

Unfortunately, if you're in the market for a gryphon-esque Blazervette shooting brake, you'll have to build your own, or try to talk the new owner into letting it go: it sold for $21,500 earlier this month on eBay Motors.
