Ford is a good choise, I think. Matra had Ford engines in the F1's and Sports car prototypes until their V12 was ready. And the 530 was fitted with a Ford V4.

However, speaking of the V12... the ultimate project would be this one:

Ooh! I like it. Wonder how I can get it accepted by the Danish "Færdselsstyrelsen".
But it should not be that difficult. After all, it is only a minor modification. Grin

Made a phone call to Burton Power Products and they will build me a Ford YB 16v for between £10k - £15k depending on whether normally aspirated or fuel injected.  Errr I think I shall pass on that idea then!  Shocked

Ouch!  Shocked

Too bad, it was a great idea.

Back to the list then... I like the Peugeot idea, though the Honda is very "sexy". I just feel that a japanese engine in a Matra would be wrong somehow Roll Eyes Sorry!  Wink

Anders, this car is the last one which I dream about  Grin could You imagine what would this had to be? If they were making this, than all Ferrari drivers were looking for Matra stickers  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

Hi Razorback, the carbon inner wheel arches came with the whole car which I bought in Germany. I do not really know if the guy himself made them or bought them from someone? I will send you a PM with a contact number and name (he doesn't have e-mail).

Cheers,

GP

PS: Darrenheli has several items from me including the inner wheel arches for copying in carbon. So you can always put your name on the list like the rest of us for bits.  I am hoping for a carbon roof panel no less, as I have a sunroof in my silver car which I detest.

Do not despair Darenheli descended on my spare car and stripped it bare like a vulture including the light pods. He was last seen entering the curing oven with many rolls of carbon fibre and case of beer. Goodness knows what he is going to come out with?

All we need to do now is convince him to give  up the day job!

Graham i wish i could give up my day job , playing with cabon is much better all i need is a sponsor. ive finished all the wheel arch stone guards at last next is the wiper mechanism cover panel behind the fuse box , then either the roof panel ( waiting on the walk in oven) or front inner wings hopefully , this all takes a lot of time to do but we will get there slowly . by the time i retire i might have a carbon murena
