Something not quite right about this E-Type. Oh wait, its a Miata pretending to be an E-Type!

Ugh! Why bother? It's a slushbox, too.
E-Bay amazes me....next we'll be seeing an XKE remade to look like a Miata!
For what it's worth, I think my M2 looks a lot like a 7/8 scale XK-8 (maybe a bit of Ford crossover?)

Too Funny!

It looks like a one of the USS Enterprise’s “Photon Torpedoes” from the movie when Spock dies.

Can't ya just see Kirk saying: "We’ll teach those Klincons a thing or two. Scotty load the MKE!"

Notice there are no side shots - everything's on the oblique....bet its a strange looking little thing from a side view - too short in the middle, too long on ends!

Oh c'mon, you can "buy it now" for only $16,950.

Everything's worth something and if that ain't worth 17 grand, then... graemlins/nonod.gif

Yeesh, another great car ruined.
The only thing that abomination has going for it is that it probably runs great, and is super reliable.
The E type OTOH..... images/icons/wink.gif

If I were to go the swoopy bodykit look on a Miata, I'd head straight for the Pitcrew Racing kit, anyway. Longtime Miatanetters will know what I'm talking about. I think you can still see pics of it over at rspeed's site.

Thats as bad as those Fiero GT40 kits they used to sell. Probably the same company.

I cant believe there are actually bids for it. I would'nt doubt if most are shill bids.
