    Weird little critter. If some fool wants to spend $40,000 on an ugly, bizarre looking Miata more power to them. I guess getting a couple atomic bombs dropped on your head can have some long term effects.

      Just slightly similar. They made it slab-sided without coves. It is in the same style as the retro-T-Birds. One beer short of a 6-pack.

        They made first gen Mustang lookalikes from older Miatas.

          What about the Russian company building ELECTRIC 65-66 Mustang GT replicas, complete with a sound recording for exhaust noise?

                I'm only guessing ahead of the real answer from Rock, my colloquial term is, "Nancy." I could do a good-sounding impersonation of Ronald Reagan's voice. I'd say, "Dammit Nancy." And then I ended up living next door to a Nancy for a while and that made it even better.

                    Never mind ... I searched the reference and it is close to lyrics used in the song 'Baby Got Back' by "Sir Mix-a-Lot" released in 1992. Probably why I didn't get it.

                      They remind me of the little Humble Oil-sponsored kid-drive cars they had at Six Flags in the late '60s . . . About half of the cars were knockoffs of a "My Mother the Car" open touring car (early '60s leftovers from the opening of the ride) and the rest were newer, pint-sized, loose copies of Stingrays (which if memory serves they called "Chaparrals") .

                      I guess all the "whimsical" imitation-is-the-sincerest-form-of-flattery stuff from yesterday's "Studebaker" radio thread is now out the window . . . .

                      Given the price of real C2s in Japan, these little bugs sort of fit under the PT Cruiser school of relatively cheap copies . . . .

                      It could be worse. . . . they could be out killing whales and de-finning sharks.

                      Americans have had their own flirtation with expensive retro body kits . . . .

                        Can't have a reference without a link to the definitive video . . . . (the mom-dancing begins at 2:41)

                            Shhhh . . . that's Billy Ford's secret prototype for the 20XX "Mustang" after you-know-who achieves the "green" dream of 100 MPGe CAFE Standards (and putting all the OK-LA-TEX oil workers and Wyoming coal miners on relief . . . . )

                            We had some piped-in sound back in the old days . . . . (That might even be HAMB-approved!)

                              On the high-end of this....Karl's Chevrolet in Ankeny, Iowa makes old Corvettes out of new ones. Pretty nice stuff. Not cheap.
