Default 1965 Austin Healey with a turbo miata engine

First off this isn't mine.
Second, my apologies if this is a repost.
Third, this thing looks ******* awesome.

Beautiful bugeye. This site has jaded me though, because the pressure-chamber manifold and tiny downpipe stick out to me now, haha. All in the name of packaging, I suppose. I'd still drive the hell out of it.

That is the best of both worlds. Old school Brit roadster with a reliable power plant.
Sweet ride, and the dipstick handle is broken.

I want to do pretty much that same thing to a pre '70 Triumph Spitfire or Volvo P1800...maybe someday.

A 69 Triumph GT6 would be killer. I like the rear lights of the 69 Spits and GT6's.

Love the idea. Always preferred the Datsun 2000 roadster with an SR20DET under the hood...I know there's at least a couple examples of that combo out there.

It's a shame he didn't use a real bugeye. They have much better looking quarters/tailights and body lines. Bugeye front end on non-bugeye car...but I wouldn't kick it out of the garage.
