    Some of us actually prefer lightness and the Rover K series is definitely light. Maybe due to the cheese holes. I've spoken with the owner in the past. Definitely a true R500 K from England. That's two of us with Ks that I know of. Tom

    The Divas is kind of a blend of se7en and Cobra. But it works for me.

    If I can only have one of the above tho, I will take the Rover engined cat and challenge you Duratec guys in the straight line wars. (I cant believe YellowSS7 hasnt bought this guy's engine yet).

    The Kougar is interesting, although probably a sad ending to MK II jag. As I recall they were a fairly nicely engineered thing, reminiscent of 1940s or 50s special.
