    At last got building again after the summer break. Finished the interior, chassis and engine should be a doddle. Exterior will need more work, esspecially the front and tail lights. Possible will improve the mirror struts as well.

    Here is a good pic of the GT90 with the spoiler deployed: You can see the foil shape and curve of the rear body. The model is a good match in general shape.It differs just that the spoiler on the 1/18 model is a bit thicker and therefore that the recess in the body is deeper. It will generate...

    I made a scale model of the spoiler system based on pictures available. This is a good pic of the original: What you see is the half of an hydraulically operated L-shaped swing arm. The pivot point is about over the rear axle. The remaining (not present) part of the arm is fitted on the...

    Okay, that's a pity. On the other hand, the design is basically aerodynamic flawed. Flipping up the spoiler at speed would mean losing the back end and I suppose you don't want to sell such cars and be liable for claims.

    Okay, thanks. Cool and expensive stuff they have there. I heard from another Ford forum the GT90 had been scanned in Detroit. So most probably the car was scanned by RCR to prepare the design and build of a replica GT90. That would be extremely exciting.

    GT90 from ground up

    Yes it's a pity that Des has stopped blogging. I learned from another Ford forum construction is under way for a GT90 kit. Exciting news despite my concerns about getting such a car road legal. I recently discovered the real GT90 is owned by the Hajek museum in Ames Oklahoma and that the above...

    This video was shot at the same place, see the fridge and the engine hoist. Even the man in the car seems the same. Visible in the video and the pic above are some sort of louvred air intakes in the door sills. Any idea what these could be...

    People watching the GT90, posted just a day ago. Looks like a sort of workshop: Anyone know where this is? I would love to get better detailed pics or get info about certain items on the car.

    New USA law for kitcar manufacturers

    Good new for companies that sell kits in the USA. Now they can also sell completed registered cars, so in fact become small manufacturers. This New Law Just Made Kit Cars A Lot More Appealing

    GT90 Info

    Yes I understand, but the GT90 is not dead yet. It's iconic status will only grow and it's a matter of time someone succeeds in producing a road legal kit. There are/have been plenty of GT40 kits. A kit car magazine recently wondered why noone has ever tried to produce a GT90 kit, and this got...
