Always use cork, looks original and has always worked well for me.

i use cork. just make sure to straighten out the valve cover lip, especially around the bolt retaining holes. this is a source of unwanted oil leaks.

here's a detailing hint if you are going for originality...

on engines with stock painted valve covers, the edges of the gasket will be blue since the valve covers were installed on the engine when it was painted.

if you have cobra or chrome covers, the gasket was normally black on the edges.
