With a few smart modifications, someone converted a boring 1995 five-door Range Rover into our new favorite open-air, off-road machine.
They replaced the rear roof and windows with a modular roll cage and roll-up soft-top. They also welded the rear doors shut, then ground the welds smooth to create a two-door longbed. Instead of regular backseats, the car now features troop-carrier jump seats. Under the hood, the car got an upgraded 4.8-liver V8 and Old Man Emu suspension.
The crazy part? The modifications reportedly cost close to $65,000, but one lucky buyer just got this car at auction for a third of that.
