I went yesterday to the Dutch MGCC western region monthly meeting.
One of the clubmembers appeared with a very nice looking RV8 with the 
tseering wheel on the left side! The original Rv8's never were made this 
way, so we all got curious.
So the owner explained it is in fact a replica, as the body donor is a 1975 

The car was not easy to build up, as the Dutch MG Rover import company 
refused to supply the typical Rv8 parts (body work etc.) The sound of the V8 
is magnificent!
So the car was brought to the UK to get the conversion done.
After finishing it took several months to get it registered for the road 

I did not dare to ask the conversion cost - but hearing the conversion 
story, it must have been a lot!
