Default Cars & Engines - Mix & Match; which retrofit would you prefer

Sometime back, before the Indian motoring revolution kick started, and before the advent of the new gen cars we used to see a lot of Amby's retrofitted with Matador engines.

Now come to think of it in today's scenario. One can have a slew of rich choices.

I would settle for an A star with 1.2K series engine; could be a real scorcher.

Mods pl. remove if it is a non-starter
