Don't have the cash for your own Mustang GT350 replica but can afford an SW20 Toyota MR2 and a big wad of fibreglass?

Ride Cars from the UK have got something that could be right up your alley.

Ride Cars will sell you a full set of fibreglass bodypanels to re-body your MR2 into something that vaguely resembles a Mustang fastback. A Mustang fastback that's shrunk - badly - in the wash, that is.

Consisting of a new front end, rear end, door-skins, sills and an assortment of hinges, lights and brackets, Ride Cars' kit does a fairly...ummm... admirable job of converting the MR2's sleek form into a twisted interpretation of 1960s American muscle.

It's unique, we'll grant it that, but would you be seen driving it?

Despite our protestations, we're sure there'll be more than a handful of individuals who'll pony up the 3995 pounds ($8957 AUD) for the ready-to-fit conversion kit. A semi-assembled package is also available for the princely sum of 7995 pounds ($17,925 AUD) - a few grand over the cost of the MR2 base car.

It's expensive, the styling is questionable and the very concept of a Japanese sports car being dressed up as an American icon is repugnant to many, so what's the point?

Well, let's put it this way: you'll be the only kid on the block with a mid-engined Mustang.
