          There are a lot of Cobra manufactures out there. The place to start is Factory Five Raving (aka FFr) and if you have the bucks, then go straight to Superperformance. The FFR product looks good and there is a lot of cars out there. I have heard that the support from the FFR clubs is great. The GTM has caught my attention, but is not in my future for a while. Remember to run though all of the things that you need to do before buying a kit car. (Visit the manufacture, see the car before you put any money down, and interview owners of the cars) If you are serous about starting a kit car, then goto either the Knott's Berry Farm AHA show in April or the Carlisle in May.

              How about something like the 250 like a Vela Rossa? I was thinking of building one before I started the 2nd 308. Looks like a pretty cool first time build. There are a few V8 conversion kits available for the 280Z and I've seen the Z's pretty cheap.
