Tiny British saloons with V8s and flashy paint jobs are lots of fun, but you've seen one, you've seen 'em all; ownership generally means weekends at local car shows and the occasional overheating drive around town. This car- currently up for sale on eBay- is an interesting variation on the theme: a '59 Morris Minor 1000 with a built Mazda B12 rotary under the hood, some custom chassis fabrication, and plenty of well-executed-yet-restrained body/paint work. The whole package looks pretty good and ought to be quite streetworthy (plus the seller gets some bonus points for the unusually coherent description). The auction ends tonight.
