Cool little cars. I think that Sean Connery drove one in "Dr. No".

Its a lovely little car. A sensible swap too but I wonder why he didn't do the 1800 Miata engine. Same size, same weight a bit more power.

My thoughts too. Really neat swap, I like the fit and finish and the valve cover setup.

Thanks for posting.
