I apologize that this is a ford but I thought it is so cool that i wanna share it with you:).

A restoration done in finland of a 1929 A-ford in a original looking outside, but with a 250 hp ford cosworth rally engine. And with a misfire button in it to sound like a old A-ford when the driver want it to. Alloy wheels in the shape and paited like old wheels with wood spokes.

There is many pics but most of them was well worth looking at.

The pics: http://www.mat.fi/project1929fordmodel-a.htm

A video with the soud with and without the misfire button.

I hope you like it.

Very cool. I wonder how well it handles with the high center of gravity.

I'm glad you liked it.

"Very cool. I wonder how well it handles with the high center of gravity."

I was wondering the same, it is like a skyscrape compared with most other cars. But I sure would want it anyway.

"I wonder what it cost or it's value."

I want to know that too, but I haven't found any mentioned of it's value. I'm sure it's out of my league by ten times at least, probably 50 times.

When I serched the site I found other interesting things like the world speed record on ice, and soviets ex dictator Josef Stalins parade car for sale.

I add the links.

This month's Hot Rod magazine did an article on this car. I thought it was cool as well
