Hey guys,

If anyone is interested in this car I could possibly go have a look at it. I can't promise anything,but let me know.

Uh oh, that's Scary-Close.


(Not a '76, though. Probably meant '67)

I'm glad it's not close to me.

Darn cool little car. I like the coupes better than the convertibles, too.

Not sure about the owners 'no rust' comment, though. It's bound to have some, and is clearly pictured sitting outside covered in snow.

Yeah-rust bubbles in front of the front wheel in the third pic, no rust indeed!

(I still want the car really really bad)

At least Honda didnt rip off any British cars when they designed it.

It looks a lot like a GT6, only smushed.

I really hope you are not referring to the Datsun Roadsters since they came out before the MGB that most people think they are a "copy" of.......

He is probably referring to the Miata,and the Lotus Elan.

There is a suprising amount of room in there. I am 6"1" and 220# and I fit very comfortably. The doors are much bigger than a comparbly sized Sprite or Midget. I regret having sold the one that I had.

... with an 800cc engine that revs like a rotary and not like a car engine. There's this story that a German University got hold of one of the engines back in the late sixties/early seventies and ran it up on there engine test bench. Way past the redline, still running without any funny noises.

Until there was an almighty bang.

They'd broken their engine test bench .

I'd love one, they occasionally come up for sale here in the UK but are pretty rare. They rust like only Italian and Japanese cars of that period can and body spares aren't that easy to get hold of. Still, they deserve to be preserved.
