What engine are you planning to use?
yes, there are some superb examples around. I'm collecting as many images as possible and plan to view some at shows before fixing on a particular style and colour scheme. ( Pauline tells me that it will be dictated by the red coloured hood but until I clean all the muck off it I won't know if it is usable).
The other big question is which engine and gearbox? The chassis is designed for Ford engines being a Sierra/Granada based car but I'm keen to see if a BMW engine will fit. I think an M30 might look good under the bonnet, but I have lots to do before finalising on the engine.
