Well thought through David.
However, I don't think you can make a serious claim the Jeep was a British 
design and I would suggest Nippon Miata groups whilst acknowledging the 
Miata to be generally based on British design would not claim it to be a 
LBC.  Bits of it may well be improved (and other bits not improved) copies 
based on LBCs but it certainly sticks in my throat to say a Mazda is a 
British car - just as it would to claim a Jeep is British.
