      Nah, the Bora was a real Maserati. I'm not familiar with one that was produced under De Tomaso. Most of de Tomaso's cars used Ford powertrains anyway.

        Maybe the Guara then....

        This is true that they were Ford powertrains, but this was of course in the days before all of the fuel injection, emission, regulation, and such that took the power out of the equation in some cases. These were carbureted raw power. Not saying they wouldn't have been better with a 426 in the back, because I wouldn't say that! :D

          Boxster or 959/911 for maybe an Eton design.

          Lot's of possibilities,

          My neighbours' dad has an X1/9 , I keep bugging him to bring it over from the island - apparently it is in good shape. Would be a fun little weekend car. Or maybe one of these,

            I had an '89 222E injection pre cat which was 3 yrs old when I bought it. It was a stupid car to buy that young imo
            Not loved by the aficionados but great fun when I wasnt paying the service bills

              Well, a 351Cleveland in a 2000 pound Pantera will still move pretty good.

                I actually thought about naming them the Miura, but the aesthetic wasn't right.
                I say you go for it! We'll have the Mangusta and Miura CF120-4 designs that way.

                      PRICE DROP!!!!!

                      I'm pretty sure these CF120-4 were $45 each.
                      They are now $28.90 each!!!!!

                            Hey Wolf, I was just skimming this thread...did you finish this build. I have the woofers and would love to build one of your designs.

                            Thanks, Robert

                              That Varedo seems like it could be using the same 351 Cleveland that the Panterra used?

                              - oops
                              I see Jeff already mentioned the Cleveland (thought I was replying way back to post #14 or so).
                              Is there a way to INSERT a comment in a particular place in a thread (the way we USED to be able to do, to sorta direct a response to a particular poster)? I don't know how anymore.

                              Maybe when board software gets updated, we should be provided w/a "User Manual" (.pdf, NOT printed!) so we can get up to speed quicker?

                                Given my pragmatic nature, I'd have to go for something like "X 1/9". It's still mid-engine Italian, parts are plentiful, and $30k doesn't buy you a project requiring another $70k for the restoration. Oh, and I'd like mine with a modern engine transplant instead of the 65hp sewing machine motor they shipped with.

                                Regards,

                                Rob
                                Sewing machine engine or not, they were a blast to drive!
