    CAV GT40

    I agree. My CAV GT air conditioner works quite well, even in Phoenix. However, if you let the car set in a parking lot in the sun, the leather seats get HOT. The A/C will blow cold air at you, however, your a*s stays hot for a long time.......

    Your first car was a ____________

    21-window 1960 VW Bus with 1959 engine. Paid $125, sold it for $250 and thought "I'm rich"! What are they worth today ? 6 figures ?

    Roll over cobra incar video, non fatal

    How many of you guys remember in the late 60s, Bell Helmet advertising slogan was "If you have a $10 head, buy a $10 helmet". It convinced me.

    Maybe this will help. I have a CAV GT40 with Smith gauges. The fuel level gauge appears to be pretty close to correct. Each tank has a VDO sender that measures 69 ohms empty and 6.5 ohms full. The sender has no other markings, though I wish I had taken a photo when I had it out. HTH. -Steve

    Hydraulic Release Bearing Problem

    My CAV GT40 ZF was converted to external slave by the PO. He got tired of leaky internal ones. Conversion kit was provided by Pantera Performance in Castle Rock, Colorado. Price was a little over $1,000 back in 2013. I have owned the car for about a year and a half, and have had no problems...

    ZF 5DS 25-2

    Many years ago, I owned a 1972 Pantera and decided I'd better check to see if the ZF had been safety wired. The -2 transaxle had about 90,000 miles at the time. Turns out, it had not. However, those bolts were on with about 500 ft-lbs, and would never have come off on their own. I safety...

    What's It Like At The Gas Station?

    It happened again this morning. A man asked me "Do you mind if I take some pictures?" I gave him my standard reply "It'll cost you a dollar." Then I smile.

    What's It Like At The Gas Station?

    At a gas station, a guy came up to me and said "I've seen a lot of great cars in Scottsdale. You win". However, there is one problem. Everybody wants to talk to you at traffic lights, but the windows don't go down. I need to make a sign that I can show them that says " sorry...."

    New Valkyrie owner in Eastern Panhandle WV

    Doug: Well, here you go. I built this Crown conversion in the early '70s, using a 1969 Z-28 302 crate motor. It surprised a lot of people in Ann Arbor, Michigan, including Porsches, GTOs, and Mustangs. Unfortunately, the local police knew me, too. I was also involved with the University of...

    Carroll Shelby's 80th Birthday Car

    I am thrilled to be the owner of CAV GT40 #80, which was delivered to Carroll on his 80th birthday. I purchased the car from forum member Pat Buckley in April 2018. I have spent the summer making a few changes to the car to make it more drivable (I'm too old for racing), e.g., milder camshaft...
