One option is a modified MGB. There are several kits that make it easy to install a Rover V8 (the UK SBF/SBC) or a 60 GM V6 out of a 90s Camaro. They don't have the grunt of a modern 302, but you're talking costs on the order of $20-30k, not $50k+. There are coilover setups for sale that bolt right in.

Get yourself a '67 with wire wheels and you have a gorgeous, fast Miata that can keep company with a Ferrari 250 in a parking lot.

If you'd consider a MGB with a V6/V8 then a Miata with a LS/T56 could be an option. AND, and it would have a top that works.
My Superformance tops kept you "less wet".
The LS/Miata package can be very effective.
The Honda S2000, either gen 1 or 2 is a great car.

The new Lotus is sweet.

I love a lot of the cars here. When I wanted something different than a Cobra I decided to build my own Cheetah Tribute. Tribute because my car is not a replica. I tried to incorporate the the styling of the Cheetah with my ideas of how I wanted it.

- Dedicated Space frame. The pics are of a new frame that I'm finishing up. (the roll bar and shocks are for mock up)
-freshened LS1 with Tremec TKX
- 52% rear weight
- 1900lbs
- MGB windshield

The pictures of the red car are of one that I built a couple of years ago. It drives great. It has a mild SBC and Richmond 4 speed. I'm building the new one with the upgraded drivetrain. I'll finish it to a higher standard with nice paint and interior. The goal is to make a removable hard top as well. The red car is going up for sale. Having fun!

From what I understand, you would want a 77 or later, since the firewall is already for the Rover engine, and the motor mounts are better. Then lower the car, and put chrome bumpers on, and you have a great car. Oh, the Rover V8 weighs roughly 40 lbs less then the iron MG 4!

Default Best Sleeper.

Not much 240-Z left on that car I just sold my RX-7/V-8 (302 Mustang, T-5) Best sleeper, I've ever owned. Purschie 911SC weren't much of a problem to drive by
