    Hello again - thinking of another GT40

    Hi all Just wanted to say hi again as haven't been on here for a few years since selling my part finished Tornado replica. Owning a GT40 was a real dream for me but as my build progressed I realised that as much time and attention and original parts that I lavished on the car it wasn't going to...

    Porsche 917 - am I crazy?

    Hi all I looked long and hard at the 917, had quotes for shipping and with the pound so strong against the rand I very nearly bought one. However I had a couple of other cars on my dream list at the time and ultimately decided that as amazing as the 917 would be it would only ever be a track...

    Gelscoe Motorsport Ltd

    Yes as far as I know, still in business. They travel a lot with clients cars and are always busy so I would give them a bit of time to respond. Worth getting in touch with though as they have some great parts and can supply almost anything.

    New Ford GT

    I think the main reason Ford have gone for a 6 cylinder will be weight, packaging and fuel efficiency. All the things you need for endurance racing these days. The new car looks great, it has a clear lineage to the GT and GT40 and is more about technology and race winning than being a just a...

    Hi all Well the GT40 has finally gone to a new home and so ends my GT40 dream (for now at least). The new owner picked up the car at the weekend and is only down the road from me so I will hopefully keep you posted on how the build goes. Thank you to everyone for your support and help during...

    Aston Martin DB4 Zagato replica

    Hi guys Well some unfortunate news, the project isn't happening. I was due to take the car this week but there were one or two issues that I've been talking to the builders here in the UK about which would have added more to the budget and it was starting to creep up to a figure that didn't...

    Thanks Fran, would be great to get in touch with your friend as I am sure we will be searching for similar parts etc during the build. That aluminum body looks lovely.

    Well there is one other reason the GT40 is going. I did the dirty on her with another woman, a sexy Italian bodied beauty who I am now heavily involved with.

    Aston Martin DB4 Zagato replica

    Hi all As some of you know I've decided to sell my Ford GT40 project as I just don't have the time and motivation to finish the car. Also there was one other major deciding factor. I've been driving an Aston Martin V8 Vantage around all summer and it was almost perfect. The only thing it lacked...

    Thanks for the comments guys. I did look at several other options to keep the GT40 dream alive like getting someone else to finish the car for me but it just didn't make much financial sense. It's been a really great experience doing the build so far and I've learnt a hell of a lot, got to...

    Goodbye GT40 Very sad day today. I have finally decided to sell my GT40, it's been a really difficult decision but I just don't seem to have the time and motivation at the moment. Also I've been struggling with back problems so can't seem to manage any long periods of time working on the car...

    Car builder/engineering help required

    Hi all I am looking to take on another project. It's an unfinished project car (not GT40) that uses a modern Aston V8 Vantage engine. The car has the engine, gearbox, differential, brakes, shocks, wheels etc fitted but is missing the fuel system and steering parts etc. Rather than trying to...

    A another mini update. Finished fitting the front removable panel around the radiator pipes that gives access to the steering rack. I've installed aluminium rivnuts and the fit is really good. I plan to order the body this week which I am hoping will be ready by the spring slowly, slowly Trev
