29. 1975 Morgan Plus 8 Propane

The Morgan Motor Company made some great cars during it’s time. With wing fenders, wooden-frame bodies, and single pillar front suspensions, Morgans are built to emulate the old fashioned way cars were built. If you didn’t know better you would think their vehicles were built in the 30’s. In the early 70’s the U.S. emissions and safety standards became more strict, and Morgan ended up having to stop selling cars in the US. In an effort to continue the life of the Morgan Plus 8, Bill Fink, a rich car dealer, managed to retrofit a Buick/Rover 8 and get it running on propane. For a few years people were driving around with a tank of propane hanging behind the rear bumper, making the Morgan Plus 8 almost as dangerous as the Pinto.
