Yours looks like a rather "tame" example.Don't remember if I ever posted a pic of the Cuda.
Sold it, last August. Being broke stinks.
OK...............the seating position is no longer comfortable, with my back problems.

Good thing I sold it when I did. The ignition switch shorted out, right before Thanksgiving, and burned up the wiring harness, inside the steering column. Luckily, a new harness came with the switch. But, there was still damage to the part that was not removable. I think they are still working on it.
Sometimes referred to as a "sleeper". You do not know what has. I do............Yours looks like a rather "tame" example.
Yeah, they made 'em that way, but...............I'm not familiar with how these cars were offered from the factory other than most seemed to have racing stripes, fancy hood scoops, and fancy wheels - not to mention some very bright paint schemes.
Well, from the dealer, with taxes and what-not, it was a few dollars over $3k. All I could afford, at the time.If possible, I would love to know more about your car's back story as it relates to it's journey from the factory.
No, not really. Time for someone else to enjoy it. He drives it to work every day. The folks he worked with asked him how long it took to restore it.Sorry about the sale....BTDT. Like me, it will probably haunt you for eternity....

Has some things on it I didn't know about, didn't pay for, and was later educated on the fact that they're unusual for a base model (i.e., not a Boxster S, and certainly not a Spyder).
Main thing is PCCB carbon brakes. I'd had the car about 2 years, totally ignorant that the car had them and what they were. Then, a more knowledgeable owner told me. Ordered new, it's about a $10K option. I bought the car used from CarMax, and certainly didn't pay for that.
Advantages: Incredible stopping power. If you don't race the car and don't abuse the brakes, they'll last well over 100K miles. Bad news is when you finally do have to replace the rotors, and if you use the PCCBs, it's a $20K to $25K job. Not a typo. Twenty grand plus. Just the rotors themselves are right at $5K apiece.
Fortunately, Brembo makes a steel rotor that substitutes right in. Still not cheap, but about 85% better than the alternative. I might have sold the car if I hadn't been told about that.
Also has dual exhaust and contrasting silver paint on the rear wing and the side air intakes. True three-pedal 6-speed manual, no PDK.
Kind of spartan on the infotainment system, but it's huge fun in the spring and fall.
I drove one of those once. Back in the early 90's a salesman left one at our store for a week or so, so I used it to commute, instead of my usual company pickup.I drove a Chevy Cavalier

I went through at least 3 sets of tires on that car before I had to grow up a little
Yep, my dad made sure I could turn a wrench on that car when I turned 15. He made me pull the motor and do the tear down on it to start with. It was the cast iron 4 cylinder with dual Webers and 4 speed manual. Unfortunately all British manufactured models from the 60's and 70's were wiring nightmares.Wooooo......NICE Benz!
Buddy of mine had a MGB-GT in BRG just like yours. Had the overdrive option too, which he cherished. He also had a MGB at some point - and an Austin Healy - and a bunch of others sports cars. Now his ride is an S2000.
