Old school Rod Millen front bumper
Multiple side winkers
Lo pro headlights
Any guesses on what wheels? They almost look like Ronal Turbos but they're not.

Here's my take on that miata - it is from an old Buthe (Germany) ad - typically they sold knock off body parts and some unique and original body parts - my guess is that those low pro's are the KG Knock Offs as well (from looking at the thinner sealed beam lamps.

The wheels may be old Rondell's - with a major offset.

Good catch Peter. I guessed that they were K.G. Works lamps based solely on the age of the photo. Your jdm skills are truly superior to mine. Well done, good sir.

I think the wheels you are referring to are the Ronal R10's, with a serious offset, or I could be wrong, as the Turbo's are very similar, probably knock-offs.

I thought the same thing. I had some R10 Pizza Cutters for a while but they don't make them that deep as far as my research showed. Those look pretty cool. Not really a fan of the tails and front bumper though :?

The side markers, front grill, and taillight covers are the only things I dont care for about it, other than that Its an awesome roadster in my opinion

oh yeah man, I love those wheels, my favorite style for sure. I do like the ronals but I HATE the RONAL/TURBO crap gouged into the face of the wheel.

I have that site bookmarked and many images saved of them, and that pic on my computer at home. some day, I gotta get my hands on those wheels! good thing this forum is international :mrgreen:

yes, thats is the "brother büthe" also known as import-tuner-shop (and another name i dont know in the moment), he has a very bad reputation here in germany, many many people bought the knockoff-parts from him, paid and are still waiting for their money or parts :(

he sold enough parts under the name büthe, did not deliver them, went out from germany (his actually home i dont know, i think spain), bought a nice sunny home for himself with the money and came back with the new name import-tuner-shop

many know him, but nevertheless new people come up and try to buy parts from him now

the qualitiy of his ripoffs (even the few he really delievered ;)) was not good

The body kit is a bit much, but the colors kinda just ruin the whole thing for me, like the sliding mirror though, wish I could still get one of the ones that Metro Motorsports sold, I hadn't seen the Moss one. I always looked at the Buthe site and wondered about the parts, funny to hear the first hand account. Their stuff always reminded me of some Aston Martin influences. And #-o! on the wheels! Cool nonetheless.

Speaking of old school, whatever happened to Peter Baumann, of the Baumann Swiss MX-5 Shop?

I remember he was into the JDM cars back in the mid-late 90's back in the day to.
