yes it was..i met Rob when i took a white vert in for inspection.. he introduced himself afterwards and asked if i'd be interested in his winter beater!!!!! lol.. after chit chating for a few weeks we worked something out.. and here she is..

at first i was hesitant cause it was red..but the wife is happy with it...

lol you are asking the wrong person.. at this point i still know nothing about cars.. Rob rolled the fenders cause it was rubbing.. originally i wanted it raised.. even today i think it looks a little low.. but everyone says it looks nice this way and it'll be fine for the summer...
so guys i'll be asking a lot of stupid questions as i learn to spend some time getting to know the car.. and fixing cosmetic things here and there...

Yep, that's the M20.
You want to look underneath towards the front bumperish to see how dramatically low the oil pan is.
Once you do realize how low it is, you'll want to be careful of speed bumps and/or steep inclined driveways or entrances from the road.

Slick ride though, looks amazing

edit: Do I see euro grills?
