Over the years, Atlanta-based Motorcar Studio has become synonymous with impeccable restorations of the International Scout, particularly the 1976 International Scout II. They turned one into a bright yellow beach cruiser with a soft top. The did another one as a murdered out daily driver. And now, they’re back with another in a decidedly vintage olive green with white top and matte black rallye stripe paint job. The color scheme is different, but the work and the features are every bit as great as their previous builds. 345 cubic inch V8 mated to a TorqueFlite 727 automatic transmission under the hood. Dana T143 single-speed transfer case (a factory option for all Scout IIs that was rarely ordered) with a pull knob on the dash to select four-wheel drive instead of a second shift knob. Mickey Thompson 17″ Deegan wheels wrapped in 285/70 Kenda Klever R/Ts. It also has power steering, power disk brakes and air conditioning to complete the modern performance and creature comforts meets retro look that Motorcar Studio does so well.

Moon-Puzzle-IF2

We pride ourselves on being able to tackle problems and jigsaw puzzles like everyone else–from the edge pieces in. That’s a little more difficult when it comes to thousand piece adventures like the Moon puzzle you see here. In is out, out is in, and there’s an entire quadrant of almost fully gray pieces that depict the lunar surface, but all of that just adds to the productive difficulty you’ll experience when you’re assembling this jigsaw version of modern history. As they tell it, “July 16, 2019 marked the 50 year anniversary of the Apollo 11 launch – the historic mission to the Moon where Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first of humankind to set foot on the Moon. Our Moon puzzle celebrates this momentous achievement and will challenge and delight puzzle solvers everywhere.”
