Let me see, you like the Corvette, the MG is insane and you would love a convertable. So how about a convertable MG with a Corvette engine? Click on the link and see a really insane MG, and how he did it.

I like that, but there sure isn't much MG left in that ol' MG! My personal-favorite, V8-swapped MG favorite is this one, though:

What to do when you get this message ? Photo looks like it is loading up , gets to 100% then....

The uploaded file is too large for the server to process.
If you use your Phone like me, I Just take a screenshot of the photo I want to use and that screenshot is lower resolution and usually below 1,5mb

Today, I'm really into offbeat cars of the 1970's and my other half and I would like something along the lines of a 1978 AMC Matador with an 8-track.

But I have been privileged to own a 1967 Corvette Stingray roadster with 327-inch engine and 350 BHP in Elkhart Blue with Teal Blue interior, white rag top, and removable hardtop. This was purchased from the original owner and I am seen here driving it at the homecoming football game with my best friend and freshman-class representative. Sadly, the Stingray is long gone.

But I still own this 1967 Ford Galaxie 500 XL in Raven Black with Saddle interior, seen here in 1986 in front of my buddy's house just after the full restoration.

The Galaxie is one of the greatest full size coupes of all time.

@Imuricecreamman; Saabs! Yes! Excellent choice! I've always had a soft spot for the little curvy early ones that won rallies! Awesome! But yes, they do make jet fighters too, and that was certainly imprinted on the mind of my generation by this ad campaign;


Directed by Tony Scott who directed Top Gun (and so the thread come full circle! My work here is done).

@HPA Rep, '67 Stingray roadster is to die for! It's got to be THE car for Vietnam era fighter pilots and astronauts.

Those three-wheeler Morgans are gorgeous - the original, too, as they predate their four-wheelers. What I love about the three-wheeler versions is that they call to mind a biplane, but also they aren't that far from a motorcycle either. I'd be curious to see one of these redeveloped as an electrically-drive couple version. I'm sure Morgan will do that eventually. Money no object, I'd have one of these, one of the base-model two-seater four wheelers (Plus 4?), and a four-seater in a coupe format for the Winter.
Morgan actually do an electric version of the 3 wheeler called the EV3. Theres a dealership near where I live and I popped down to view...here's a couple of pics
Cant beat the sound of the V twin tho IMHO

That's very cool. They did have one on the UK website but it seemed to be a kiddy version, less I read it wrong. I'm keen on the idea of an electric car once there are more charging points (and good financial incentives to drive one) especially should solar charging become viable!
