    Shell Synthetic 30m castor

    I was looking at the technical from 1964 and noticed the component suppliers. Mention is made of "Shell Synthetic 30m castor" as the engine oil. My guess is that was something that was used back then not only in the GT40 but also by BRM and Ferrari racing cars. Does anyone know?

    Poetry in motion

    Last week, I saw a GT40 on the road, just general suburban traffic. I've seen it at car shows but on the road it's something incredible

    Nose color

    Might someone know the "RGB code" for the blue on the nose of the 1964 and 65 LeMans cars. Guessing it's "Shelby blue". I am helping a custom decal guy. Thanks

    All is well, just waiting for the heat to break. No church car show this year so I won't get to see the GT40 that comes

    Any body seen the movie Le Mans 66?

    I finally went to see it yesterday. Although riddled with inaccuracies, when they got to LeMans it was so worth it. Hearing the voice of Jim McKay really brought me back. There were two things from Daytona that Inoted. In a pit scene there seems to be John Holman and on the bulkhead behind...

    Difference in GT40 model kits

    The other difference is tires. The IMC kit has some reasonably correct Dunlops while the other has generic skinnies. Fortunately, I had a set of Dunlops in my stuff

    Difference in GT40 model kits
