    Drivetrain Options

    THERE'S the answer to your quandary right there. Come re$ale time you'll be very glad you went that way. Seriously. Most buyers prefer traditional power trains. And that's not even factoring in all extra time, engineering, money and hassle you'll avoid trying to shoehorn an 'off the wall' engine...

    Possibly new owner of P2148 GT40

    Tell me why i should or shouldn’t buy this GT40...

    Superformance is THEE closest to an original 'far as I know. So much so that they were licensed by Carroll Shelby to use the GT40 name & "P"-type serial numbers. Something like 85% of the parts on an original will interchange with those on a Superformance. Originals use a monocoque chassis (as...

    possibly the sickest engine/tran package for an SLC ??

    No matter what you may have seen out on the salt, Neil, it doesn't negate my point. ...and I could be persuaded to do that...if I already had the car I have in mind...which I don't...and, given my age, 'never will. ;)

    That doesn't mean I'm interested in WATCHING speed events, Neil...especially on salt! ;-) Too difficult to get all that crud off one's car...and you know what will happen if you don't! :eek:

    This is just ANOTHER example illustrating how CLUELESS government can be...and, many times, IS. There isn't one lawmaker in a thousand who knows a darned thing about the TARGET of the various laws he/she votes on that will govern, regulate or BAN said target. ...'going to my room now...

    Naaaah...Bonneville doesn't really ring my chimes. I'm an old fuddy-duddy in that area. 'Little bit too complicated mating one of those to a Graziano 6-speed, Rich! ;-)
