This is a street legal MGB-GT with a competition prepared 3.5L Aluminum Olds V8. An amazing feat of automotive engineering, t was designed and built between 1999 and 2002 by a Honda Automotive Engineer, or Autocross Racing, and was "upgraded" (downgraded?) to street legal. It has been very well maintained. The builder has a collection of trophies won against 302 Cobras, 6 Sprites, nd many other modified cars. The entire build is documented in a photo album (included) along with most of the receipts.

This is not a luxury sportscar, r a maintenance-free disposable import. It is a solid car, ow to the ground, ith character - and a power to weight ratio to launch you into low-earth orbit.It rides like a race car. It drives like a race car. All of these are GOOD things. It was built for performance, ot luxury. It is not “perfect” (except for the thrill of driving it!). It is not new, t is not pristine, t is used, ut well maintained. This will be apparent in the pictures.
