Re: NEW! AC COBRA Models from AC Cars!

I wonder what the conversation was in the 1960s when someone decided to put a American Ford V8 in a British sports car. I may not like it, but it's "progress". :( :shock:

Re: A newbie saying hello...

I don't really understand the fixation with Guildford numbers, unless used for an accurate reproduction of a racing car.
