It isn't. It is staring slack-jawed into space.

The funny thing is, given the size of the truck those are small.

I don't think I mind it - if it had full lights/lenses and the grill insert - I think it would look close to a 968 or maybe a little better.

Reminds me of an alltrack cellica.

That makes it so much creepier. It's like a horribly mutilated corpse with the mouth pulled into a grin T_T

I think I see what Mr Happy means: it DOES look kind of like a fifth-gen Celica.

Not that there's anything wrong with looking like a fifth-gen Celica.

That reminds me of a hot import nights car show circa 2001. Yuck.

That thing must have JUST been posted, I was shopping for 944 on Portland craigslist last night.

So he went through all that to make it look like an early Neon? Does not compute.

Ha. Puzzle through this one:

I like the portals. Very Buick touch for your MGB.

Curmudgeon MegaDork

Seeing as the MGB GT V8 motor was a Buick design, it could be argued that they are sort of related, it just needs 4 per side.

But the headlights... the RV8 was passable but this bug eyed thing is not.

Then there is this poor Jensen Healey which was minding its own business..

I like the RV8 a lot. Neon headlights don't belong on anything but a Neon, though

I am curious to see what the 944 would look like if someone saw it through.

Curmudgeon MegaDork

The RV8 was pretty cool, but for what it cost I'd expect less of a 'did it in my back yard' look to the nose. The rear looked sorta Rolls Roycey, too.

There's a lot wrong with the RV8, but I really like MGs.

I <3 MG's as well, I've had a few B roadsters (5, IIRC) and a 1500 Midget passed through my hands as well. Then there was the GT6+, the TR6, about a dozen or more Spitfires (like Lay's potato chips, those things), a Triumph Herald and now two Jensen Healeys.
