This one rates high (or low) on the ugly scale.

You can at least take comfort in the fact the seller says its one of a kind! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazyeyes.gif

If that thing is a trophy winner I'd hate to see the cars it competed against.

I remember seeing that one eBay year ago or so. Just as ugly as ever.

Have you ever heard that bulldogs are so ugly because they chased one too many parked cars? That's what this car reminds me of. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/pukeface.gif

I just noticed in the description -

" New breaks and wheel cylinders all around. "

Bruce, I think that means you need to get clearance on a runway to stop it. Why would you not upgrade the brakes??? Wayne

There are 5 categories of ugly.....

1.) Ugly.

2.) Butt Ugly.

3.) Gag a maggot Ugly.

4.) Ugly enough to make a buzzard puke.

5.) Uglier than a sack full of a**holes.

That MG is only a #2. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif

I have to give it a 4 - maybe even a 5. But each person sees beauty or ugly in their own way. The person who built it must have had some liking for it although it is for sale.

It's not so bad. A few days with a metal grinder and just a little bondo and it could look like this...

Cheers,

"...and gets and unbelievable amount of attention on the road."

In this case, I'm not sure that's a good thing.

LOL! I just took a better look at the photo. I should have seen that one a mile away. But I didn't, and Kudos to you and your artistic abilities! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/lol.gif

I like the new front end idea also. Nice job on the picture doctoring John.

Thanks guys. It was a fun little photoshop redo. Only took about 15 minutes but it's pretty rough around the edges. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/hammer.gif Just shows what you can be done if you keep to some design principles (mainly beauty trumps ugly every time).

Cheers,
John

John, you should get a post office box in Nigeria, and offer it on eBay! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif
