    pretty simple. if you could have the vehicle you always wanted, what would it be?

    mine is a 2011 (or latest model, as i don't want a 2011 car in 2030, haha) Ford F-250 King Ranch 4x4 :)

    my husband used to have a Noble M400 but sold it, it terrified me.

    I guess you can say it was his dream car and my nightmare car... all at the same time. :blushing:

    1965-67 Shelby AC Cobra

    More reasonable..

    Porsche Turbo 911

    More reasonable

    Latest version of the Porsche Caymann

    More reasonable...

    NA Miata with shoehorned ford v8 would be close enough.

    Even more reasonable

    Air cooled VW beetle with solid heater channels (no rust) for me to tinker with.

    A buddy of mine threw in a 327 'Vette engine into an Austin Healy 3000.

    It would smoke 'em, but I don't think he ever got the weight distribution right. :lol:

    I've seen a few different v8 engines shoehorned into various small cars... weight distribution and chassis limitations have always been key issues. The NA Miata seems to be an ideal chassis to start with... AFAIK, there are 3 kits to choose from to simplify fabrication and keep the engine mounted towards the firewall. A small ford v8 is just a few pounds heavier... than the old mazda iron block. 327 vette... well... that's a bit more difficult :lol:
