Love it.

One of the automobile magazines or TV shows about a dozen years ago did a comparison of track performance of a 1930's race car with an aircraft engine like a Liberty compared to the latest Porsche GT2 or GT3.

The modern Porsche barely had a better lap time, the test driver commented that with modern tires the 1930's open wheel car would have won by a large margin.

Something like a 1960's Lotus 25, 29, 38, 43 or 49 (Jim Clark-ish) would be cool too. I'd imagine not as fun because it would be a museum piece.
