Chevrolet "Alter Nomad" Caprice - Click above for high-res image gallery

There are certain truths about Chevrolet wagons that we hold to be self-evident. Fourth generation long-roof Caprice models are all kinds of awesome, especially when packing the luscious Corvette-sourced 5.7-liter LT1 under the hood. Additionally, the '57 Nomad is one of the most beautiful wagons to ever prowl the wide open spaces of our fine country. That doesn't mean that we're all for blending the two vehicles together, though. That didn't stop one Thomas Taylor of California from penning the beastie you see above. Rolling under the "Alter Nomad" banner, the vehicle is a whole heap of almost awesome.

While the fin work out back does much to banish the bubble rear of the Caprice, tricks like the rocket hood spears and painted chrome insets make our stomachs churn. The saddest part of this tale is the fact that this particular machine rolls with the weaker 5.0-liter V8. Even with a remarkably low 81,116 miles on the odometer, the mill isn't exactly on our list of world-class lumps. If this kind of kit is your bag of marbles, head over to eBay Motors for a closer look. While the auction has just ended, the bidding only got up to $6,500 with an unmet reserve, so we're thinking if you want to make this trans-generational mashup yours, all you have to do is call the dealer, Discover Classic Cars in Arizona, and raid your piggy bank.
