The MG B was "styled" by chopping off the ends of MG's old Bonneville special. They go back on quite gracefully.
This reminds me of American Colonial architecture, which was a copy, in wood, of the marble used in classical greek work. That, in turn, was a copy in stone, of the previous indigenous wooden architecture, when they still had trees. The frescoes of the Parthenon include simulated heads of wooden pegs "holding" the parts together. With thanks to J.E. Gordon.
