    How much does it weigh? If I replace my current trailer, that's one I'd consider.

    Access to Ford v. Ferrari movie

    Another movie is "Rush". My wife is not a car person, but she wanted to go back to see it a second time in the theaters. Later, she bought the DVD so she could watch it on her own.

    At last a car guy reviews Ford v. Ferrari, a Motor Trend editor

    I just got back from the sneak preview. It's a good movie, but it's a story about Ken Miles, not the cars (Rush was a better movie about racing). I was disappointed that UK development effort was never mentioned. We never see John Wyer or Eric Broadley (however there is a shot of a Lola...

    Who is going to be spending October re-reading "Ford vs Ferrari"? I'm moving it to the top of the pile for reading.

    Rare original GT40 fuel valve and lever

    Here's a picture of the switch from my car. The faceplate says "ALL OFF", "A TO C", and "A TO B".

    Should the faceplate of the switch have stamped lettering for the switch settings? (that's what my car has)

    To bring this back to the forum theme, would anyone consider using a Corvette engine and transaxle as a donor for a GT40 build?

    Form an orderly queue

    Did the car sell? Unlike some of the other lots in that auction, it doesn't have a sale price.

    J-10 for sale

    I wonder if everyone who might have bid on J-10 was at the RM auction where 1016 was being sold (it went for $9,795,000).

    Here she is...

    Very pretty. If you're using Windows, there's a free program called IrfanView that will let you rotate your photos (and do other stuff). (press 'r' to rotate and then save it)

    I knew that 1016 was part of the famous 1-2-3 win at Le Mans in 1966, but I didn't know that it has an automatic gearbox. The estimate is $9-12 million. If it exceeds $11 million, it'll beat the previous record for a GT40 (P/1074 - M.1003) in 2012, which is described at the auction record for...
