I remmby I modeled a Grand Prix Ferrari 312 (not exact model I cant remmby) when I got it from my uncle for my bday, I stared at the thiny flat 12 engine. Funny. I believe the Ferrari flat 12 engine was fitted on a grand prix car in late 67 or 68. I guess the automobile manufacturers copy Porsche idea? Hey, The Highlander, you mentioned about the flat engines are good gravity weight. Its true.
Sequoia, I have one question, How did the Porsche sport cars became so popular in US in early 1960's? Hey i go back to my garage to toy my nova project. see u in post later

Remember, I drive boxer engine for 9 years and I tried drive many different of vehicle (rent, drive test, friend, family, coworker, company, etc.) and I noticed my Subaru still best then them for gravity but chevy corvette 2007 manual feel almost same as my car.
