The odd thing about the TR7/8 bumpers is those are pretty much same for all markets. At least for a Spitfire you can really clean up the front and rear by converting them to the European chrome and/or smaller under-riders. But the 7/8, everyone got those big honkin' things.
That said, a TR7 or 8 feels remarkably like a "normal" car. At least they do after you've spent a day in a GT6 which feels every bit like the late 50's car it was based on. That one is a little on the strong side of the TR8 market. It's not too difficult to find good examples for a little more than half that.
