  1. Interesting car cosmetically it’s pretty nice. Bit it needs a new wiring harness. (Never mess with old British electrics) and a modern, all aluminum 4 cylinder engine would be perfect. Lighten up that nose by a few hundred pounds.

    Of course there’s still the problem of the tiny interior. Pretty sure this car was designed by no one taller than 5’4”.
