    No! Please, no! Not an iron SBC! Not a slushbox! And melt those wheels down for IKEA pencil holders or something, please!

    The 'MGB V8' concept is a good one. You do it with the most hellacious Rover V8 you can afford to build. If you can't afford, junkyard Rangie 4.6s go begging; if you've got a crew just wait for half-price day. Remember, you pull the engine by lifting the front of the body up with the hoist, not trying to lift the lump out the top.

    Or maybe even an SBF with aluminum heads.

    But not this thing. No, no, no.

      But I will say that it's a pretty car if you're prepared for a do-over on the powertrain. If you need someone who'll spec out and build a kick-ass 5-liter Rover motor for you let me know.

    I love the color, and the Chevy V8 is there because it makes the most power for the least money which is absolutely understandable, I don't even mind the automatic (it's an overdrive) but those wheels need to be sent back to 1995

    Nope. Certainly not when compared to this one that was on DT earlier:

    Now THAT was a proper build!

    Under "condition" it says "certified pre-owned". Yep. I'm sure it was previously owned by someone and I'll certify that.
