I wouldn't fit in my Ginetta (or most other race cars) if I was either 5'1" or 6'1". Life's hardly worth living if I can't race, so I'll take neither ;)

I think the reason for the 351W is probably that the dynamics are more similar to that of the FE used in the original GT40. Of course, if originality wasn't a criteria I'd probably give Ford a miss...

Again, another car which is more unreliable than a TVR, yet doesn't get the same press, and that I would still sell my scrotum for.

That said, they ironed out the problems on the later cars, but...
