I like the fastback part. Not so sure about the carp treatment in front.

Almost looks like a Thomas denner hood but on an MGA.

If I was to buy it, I would ditch the nose and go back to something more stock-ish for the grill. Probably get rid of the lip flares (or modify them) as they don't blend in with the lines of a MGA very well. I do like the fast back and head light part though.

Lastly I'm a Chevy guy, but I probably ditch the small block and put in an aluminum block LS motor.

It has the potential to be a really cool car, but man that would be a lot of work!
