    At least it's all sheet metal. I could see alot of Mustang fans cringing at the very idea of this kit.

    This is pretty ridiculous. It's gotta be a real dry sarcastic joke by a Ferrari owner poking fun at us Feiroarri guys. Who would want a Miata Mustang? (Well, who would want a Pontiac Ferrari?!)

    I mean, it looks nice, and I'm not knocking the builder, I don't know them, but a classic Mustang kit for a Miata?

    If I'm going to buy a Miata for a couple of grand, then pay $12K to have it look like a classic 'Stang, I might as well buy a nice actual 1960s Mustang for a couple grand and then put 12 Grand into it and have a very cherry classic. Or, hell, why not just take the whole 18-20 Grand you might spend and buy the really cherry classic car outright.

    It seems to me the reason you buy a kit is (1) you want to do-it-yourself and have something cool to show for it, or (2) you want something you can't get any other way, like a 250,000 super car. I think this kit misses on both points.

    This kit might be cool if it took 1990s Mustangs and gave them the true classic look with all safety features of today, or it might even be cool to turn a 1980s Vette into a classic Stingray, but a Miata into 'Stang...?

    if the kit was for $995 + the lights and accessories for about $300, then its worth the project. A classic Mustang is just not worth the maount of labour put into it.

    I think your missing the major point of this kit. The Mustang never sold as a two seat roadster. This looks like a mustang but is a lot smaller and will handle a lot better than a 60's mustang ever could. Did I mention it's a Two Seater? Plus a V8 conversion (Monster Miata) would put it into Cobra territory.
    Even the longest journey begins with the first step.
