You know, I don't think I would do a replica (GT or Cobra) with something like a new Boss motor. It's a great motor to be sure, but I just miss the snarly exahust note and lumpy idle of an old-school big cam'ed carbed motor.
Just picture going down to the local drag strip and seeing some old beater with about 700 hp shaking and vibrating away at idle, the ground itself shaking along with it. Sure it's not really as 'good' as a modern motor, but it's hard to deny the visceral experience of it.
120 - looking at your pic of the little Abarth I can't help but start making 'vroom vroom' noises in my head and picture dicing up slower moving traffic!
