This would be a crowd pleaser at the next Sunbeam gathering!

Wow, there's no accounting for taste. I would love an Imp, but it would have to be a Stiletto. I think the fastback style looks so much better. Hey, but that's just my opinion.

Here are a few other low cars-the Mini looks better than the Imp I think!

This "lowest imp" has been on fleabay a few times now. Nobody wants it. ...Doesn't even have an Imp engine.

An Imp does have the aerodynamics of a shed, in its stock form. The fastback does smooth it out. Some have chosen to chop the roofline, that makes a stunning effect on style.

Stock Imp.

Thanks for posting the photos-I will take the red one!
Are your Imps on the road? Would like to see one at an event-those are scarce on this side of the pond......... Eric

Eric and Eric,
I really like the looks of that pimped IMP. It looks better than the convertible classic MINI.

Yes, Imps are scarce over here... Both are quite roadworthy. The Red one is rougher than it appears in photos, but has the performance; where the White one is just for looks and is stock under-the-bootlid.

The photo of the Imp coupster belongs to some guys in Europe. The photo of the red and white Imp was taken at the Meeting of the Marques in September. Maybe next year (depending on where the United is) you might see Valerie and I there. We have attended the BASH in the NorthEast the last two years.

Robert, I want a ride in that Mini of yours someday.
