Pretty good. Shame about that ridiculous roll cage.

You would probably be glad it's there if the car is as squirrelly as I think it would be.

That's a pretty gorgeous car, and there's no way you could build it for that money.

Cool car, but that seating position and steering wheel angle reminds me of my grandpa's old combine. Love the car though.

Seems it didn't sell.
Offers of $19,500 and $20,000 from a single punter were not taken up, at least not via eBay.

Road cars with cages are a total put-off to me. I incline to think that if a car needs a cage for its integrity, perhaps the swap wasn't such a great idea.

My car certainly didn't "need" a cage, but I've never regretted installing one. It contributes to a feeling of integrity, IMHO.
