Front end features the Zoom Elan nose. The headlights appear to be custom? They remind me of a Jensen-Healey or Studebaker Avanti. If they had a nice, curved Perspex cover they might look more like Jaguar E-Type S1. Wheels are Super Fins?

Those look like Nissan 240/260/280 headlights to me.

That looks great, wonder what the rear bumper looks like? The Datsun headlights are awesome!

Isint that the original Pitcrew treatment? Or maybe it is something older than Pitcrew - I am speaking of the work above the Zoom nose...I recall seeing this one in a old R&S - Pitcrew had this nose treatment waaaay back when they first launched - even had the stainless bezels around the headlamp lexan covers.

E-type lights there, the Jag was first (only covered). It is like saying Rota RBs are Panasport copies whereas the Pannys are MiniLite copies. The Japanese copy European cars not other Japanese cars.

The light buckets probably ARE 240/260/280Z. I am saying the Japenese copied the lights from the E-Type.

Nobody mentioned that the hood treatment is a la Z also.

I think you are correct Peter ... I spoke to Koga-san a while back and he mentioned to me that Pit Crew originally modified his bumper before the current type of PCR nose treatments :lol:

the hood vents look like the early celica vents, I dont know if they are functional or just cosmetic on the celica

That looks GREAT. I'd love to see that come over here as a kit.

I'm kinda with Cal on this one. While the conversion is fun it is hardly original if it is trying to make a miata look like a 240. The Z3 body kit for the miata comes to mind.... full pit crew ftw!

i think all these conversion need to stop..

only pitcrew style is acceptable.

the end.
i respectfully disagree. its a tasteful conversion that looks good.

perhaps not as good as pit crew I will give you that.




and kabel dont even bring up z3 conversions in this thread. every one I have seen is ill fitting, poorly proportioned, and in general just looks terrible and cheap. it screams of ebay quality.


IMO.
