Well, this might be the weirdest thing I wasn’t expecting to see this week. Japanese outfit Roadster Garage are now offering a conversion package that transforms your MX-5 into a mutant Toyota 2000GT convertible.
This is the sort of thing that always catches me out. On the one hand, I’m thinking “Wow, now that’s a pretty tight effort, kudos to them for a job well done”. But on the other hand, I can’t help but think this is the stuff sacrilege is made of. The 2000GT is a highly revered car around the world—is this merely an homage to a brilliant car, giving people who can’t afford the real deal the chance to own their own share of legend (albeit courtesy of a replica), or is it a stain on the car’s memory? We’d love to hear your opinion.
