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.

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.
