You guys are all haters. It's cute. I mean, he had an idea, and ran with it. And I've seen a LOT worse. All I'd change is the silver trim on the inlet.

Oh, and it NEEDS an LS-1 or something. Corvette looks without sounding like one is teh gey.


edit: Well, actually, it really only looks ok at that one front-on-45-degree angle. Still, for 3,500 or less, I'd be in.

I actually kinda like the two-tone scheme with the white swoopy things behind the wheels. It's classic without being blatant.

But that's the end of it. All the chrome needs to go, and the 'Vette logo on the nose is just plain wrong...

Put a vette motor in, and the badge would be fine.

I think I'd like the swoops to be longer. Maybe they are short to match the vette. But on the miata, there's not enough there - the tail isn't swoopy enough to pick up that theme and carry it on, so the white patch has to stand on it's own.

Lose the chrome, and it's ok! I'd drive it. I mean it's a Miata, it looks gay no matter what you do to it.
