Home / News / Cessna 310 “The Spirit of LeMons” Now Street-Legal!



Jeff Bloch, a man from South Carolina who could possibly have a bit too much time on his hands, has built a vehicle that is both one of the coolest cars of all time and just about the worst plane in the history of flight. Bloch has named his 27-foot creation the Spirit of LeMons.

The mad merging of a Toyota minivan chassis and a 1956 Cessna 310 body, the Spirit of LeMons was originally built to compete in the 24-hour LeMons race in South Carolina, which it duly did. However, Bloch, a policeman during his working hours, was left with an empty feeling once the LeMons race had been run. So, he added turn signals, headlights, and some other required knickknacks and turned the thing into a road-ready vehicle.

That’s right, Bloch now has a plane that he can legally drive down the street. Once South Carolina actually has a street, Bloch and his Spirit of LeMons will be quite the sight to behold (kidding).
