I love the coupes, but there is no way in hell I'd pay 20k for this one. LHD conversion, and no underhood shots? I bet it was a total hack job.

They only made 400 or so of these for the Japanese market only. Damn sexy.

I surprised to see the left hand drive on a car that was only made for japan. The NA was a one off, from Cali design studio. Saw it way back at the Miata Games at Rd. Atl.

I remember a while back someone looked up all of the part numbers to make their own, and I think a shop actually tried. Theoretically you could make one, but at the same time it would be so much easier/cheaper to use parts off a USDM car, like the FD as previously mentioned. If only I knew how to do body work..

I love the red one. I keep hoping someone will make a roof kit for our cars. That would be SWEET!

This popped up on the Rotary Car Club forum earlier today as well. Everyone in my office couldn't keep their tongues in their mouth.

Why and the hell didn't that come to the states?!? God car companies are stupid. I hate to learn this was ever built. Just another reason to bash the car companies. It's no wonder they are screwed. Just like Ford created a fantastic new Focus for the Euro's a few years ago but we continued to get the old one.

That car compared to the convertible is similar to comparing the Cayman to the Boxster. The Boxster looks nice but the Cayman is pure sex. Stiffer chassis, no leaky top, quieter. That thing would be fantastic daily driver and/or track car with all the go fast turbo parts in it.

I love the old MX-5 coupe.

Not too long ago I saw a Lancia Delta Integrale on eBay from Canada. I don't know if that means much to many of you but it gave me chub.
