    I wish this had more Triumph GT6 and less first gen Ford Probe. I guess the answer isn’t necessarily always Miata after all.

    I wonder if some trim over the edges of the plexi side and back windows to cover up the clunky bolts would help it look more bro and less Fred Mertz?

    Looks a little 911-ish to me wonder how water tight it is not good for the PNW area.

    There are a couple of builders out there offering Fastback conversions for Mustang convertibles where the fastback roof is bolted on/off. While nowhere near as radical as this one or the Mustang, I had a '74 TR6 with a removable hardtop and got to the point where I really preferred the look of it when the hardtop was on.

    I am in the "Miata needed to be a coupe" camp, so this a appealing. I like the look. Too bad the execution seems to be a bit slap-dash. I don't think I have ever seen the official JDM coupe version of the MX-5. Anyone have a link?

      Here's an old Mazda press release. My memory is slipping a bit, it was an NB and not an NA series Roadster.

      Yikes, that looks like it was caught in Lake Springfield.

      Thanks Gianni. Pretty odd to prepare a press release for a Roadster Coupe and then not include any photos that show the roof…. that's kinda the point of the whole exercise! But your reply gave me a search term, so here is another article about these cars:
