Posted on 2006-07-17 17:39:56 by Scott Streeter

Not one for making Car A look like Car B but this is kinda cool.

Did you look at the full size pics, or just the thumbnails? Looking just
at the small pics on the page you linked, it looks kinda cool. But when
you see the full size images, it's really rather hideous.

Maybe it's just me, but it looks like the neither the front nor
rear fenders fit -- sort of like they're glued on top of the
factory ones instead of replacing them.

The headlights aren't bad, though.

While I agree that from the straight on, side view, it's clear that the
proportions are askew, It's the most original miata transformation I've seen
in a long while! It looks to me like it could be amazing with some
adjustments (shortening the nose and the butt a bit).

Nice work!

The too-long nose seems to a feature of Aston-Martin styling from
what I've seen. So maybe this Aston Miata is actually true to
the inspiration...

Okay, I actually like this design. Maybe the problem with the point of
view you all have is that A) You're looking at it as a mod for a Miata
(I know it is, but just *pretend* it's a different car.) and B) You're
thinking of it as an AM imitation.

Try thinking of this as its own car. I think it's gorgeous. Maybe a
bit long in the door panels...but still.

Rethink...

I aggree. This is one of the better body kits. It's actually pretty
handsome, rather than just being different for different's sake.

I looked at the small pictures and it is really incredibly hideous. I guess
I will skip the full size ones, being on a phone line. :)

Anyone else find this part disturbing? &quot;Special tilt sensors detect the

rear seat headrests.&quot;

Or do I just have a waaay too vivid imagination?

What's disturbing about it? You have a roll bar when and if needed and
only then. That's sorta neat, I think.
