Mr Creosote would not fit in that car.

That's been on Ebay before.
The owner is probably mystified as to why it won't sell.

Hey it's his car and that's what he likes. The folks on ebay are beating him up enough. Though I gotta admit that it does have an identity chrisis. Opel?

yea, but now he's trying to sell it . . . :rolleyes:

well, at least its not as hideous as that Fiat X19 v8 thing that also keeps reappearing on E-Bay :eek:

i'm afraid to admit it, but that car is within 10 miles of my house. luckily, i have never seen it driving around town or commuting. please, nobody ask me to check it out for them . . . i couldn't stomach it.

That location is minutes away from me.

The car seems to be all there, just really botched the front end and tail.

I wonder if he's sell it for 1k?

(first thing I'd do is sand it down and get some primer on it!)

Nose clips are not all that scarce: restoring it to its original design is entirely viable (if the price of the car is right, natch).

Poor guy, give him a break. I've seen way more heinous mods to Bugeye sprites and Corvettes. How about those V8 Mk lll Healeys? Yuck!

Oh well, at least he did it to super common car. A '74 spider is about as rare as a '74 VW bug. (sorry about that) I bet it's just as much fun to drive as a stock one.

OK, I'll give him $3,000 - Minus $2,500 - that I'll donate to my non-profit car "research" fund (beer). With all that beer, I'm sure the car will start looking better and better as time goes on.

Oh yeah baby. Any V-8 weighs less than a Healey iron ingot tractor engine and has gobbs more power. Yeah I'd do that and with an automagic trans ta boot. Just think of the sleeper potentinal.
