    PRICE DROP!!!!!

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

    I say you go for it! We'll have the Mangusta and Miura CF120-4 designs that way.

    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

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

    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

    Boxster or 959/911 for maybe an Eton design.

    Lot's of possibilities,

Oh, and I'd like mine with a modern engine transplant instead of the 65hp sewing machine motor they shipped with.

    I would hope that, unlike the car, an X 1/9 speaker wouldn't disintegrate into a pile of rust.

    (I owned two of them.)
