Everyone Loves Bucks

A project I'm working on reminded me that I've been wanting to post more...


These are pictures I found in a random Google search regarding the topic.

A historical note about buck you might find interesting. From Wikipedia's D-type page....


Main article: Jaguar XKSS

Road-equipped XKSS
After Jaguar temporarily retired from racing as a factory team in 1956, the company offered the remaining unfinished D-Types as XKSS versions whose additional road-going equipment—including a second seat, passenger-side door, side windows, full-width framed windscreen and windscreen wipers, trimmed interior, folding hood, and bumpers—made them eligible for production sports car races in America.
On the evening of 12 February 1957, a fire broke out at Jaguar's Browns Lane plant and destroyed nine of the 25 cars that were in various stages of completion. With the requisite jigs and tooling also destroyed, this effectively ended production of the XKSS version, although Jaguar later converted two additional D-Types.
