I love the idea of owning a classic MG with an upgraded power plant and I love the look of this next car…and I’m not afraid of the price…but this next advertisement leaves a bit to be desired. Where are the photos of the engine bay? How clean was the installation? And what is up […]
I saw this next car and thought; I’ve seen this car before. I think we’ve featured it. But I can’t find the article. Something about the louvered hood rings a bell, and we’ve featured many V8 swapped MGBs over the years. Find this 1977 MGB offered for $19,500 in New Jersey via craigslist. Tip from ME.
I don’t know what it would take a import and legally drive this next car on the road in a place like California…but I’m sure there are states with better power grids, fewer wildfires, and a more reasonable motor vehicle department that would allow you the pleasure of driving a right-hand-drive convertible TVR from the 80s. The 390SE adds Rover V8 power to the sporty 350i/Tasmin chassis to make a tasty wedge salad you see here. Find this 1987 TVR 390SE bidding for $7200 CAD ($5452 USD) reserve-not-met with 5 days to go, located in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
This next car came with a certain amount of deja vu. Did we already feature this car? Or have we simply seen so many Rover V8 powered MGBs that my brain has become a fog of classic British steel and aluminum alloy? I guess this is a new entry into the world of V8 powered […]
I know what you are thinking — this is all the money with a large gratuity for a Triumph TR8. The wedge shaped thing that isn’t quite a classic, and should be well depreciated. However, you might be surprised at the condition of today’s wedge salad and rethink your scoffing at the price. Find this […]
Welcome to a Daily Turismo special edition that will henceforth be named Super Swap Saturday. Our original Super Swap Saturday plans involved going to a local swap meet and seeing if we could swap a few old Mustang parts for some less old Saab parts, but that just didn’t seem like much fun for our […]
MGBs exuded a jaunty personality ever since their introduction (at the Earls Court motor show in September 1962, priced at £690 plus £259 tax), yet they were always lacking in some soup. They carried on with the same basic shape, design until ’74 when the US DOT safety Nazis ruined a really good looking car. […]
The MGB GT was a fixed roof version of Morris Garage’s iconic MGB roadster, introduced in 1965 and built through 1980 for various markets. When first released, the GT used the same BMC B-series inline-4 cylinder engine, but added small back seats for miniature passengers and Pininfarina designed greenhouse with a fastback lift-gate and storage […]
The Lotus Eclat was in essence a Lotus Elite with a handsome fastback body shape, but it shared the Lotus 907 slant-4 engine and lackluster build quality. Today’s example won’t change your mind about 1980s Lotus build quality, but it packs a big surprise under the hood. Find this 1980 Lotus Eclat V8 for sale […]
The Triumph TR8 is the Rover V8 powered cousin of the wedge shaped TR7 and was built in limited quantities for the North American market from 1978-1980. TR8 enthusiasts estimate fewer than 1000 of the convertible versions still exist in various shape today, so finding on that is road worthy for $5k isn’t bad at […]
