    Agreed. My car was never supposed to be a concours winner, so I opted for a period item (from a Triumph 2000 as I recall) that looks OK and does a great job of clearing my screen.

    GT40 MKII Roundel / Number Lights

    They do crop up occasionally on eBay. Do a search for 1966 Ranchero or Falcon Station Wagon number plate lights. I have a couple in the garage as I bought more than I needed, but they are average quality.

    GT40 MKII Roundel / Number Lights

    Steering column controls.

    In its original setting, the stalk used to self cancel. However, I removed that facility to get it to fit nicely. I now rely on the indicator light (just to the left of the rev counter) to remind me to cancel. It's in line-of-sight and quite bright, so I don't often forget.

    Classic Car Developments Chassis #3

    One of the coolest things about owning cars like ours is that they give one the ability to grant wishes. The lovely lady I took for a spin this afternoon likely has very little time left to her, but when we pulled in the only thing she could say was that she couldn't stop smiling during the...

    Early 351 use

    I did some research in Ronnie Spain's book when I opted to go for a 351 in my car. Australian driver Paul Hawkins campaigned chassis AMGT-2 with a 351 in July 1968 at Hockenheim and at the Swedish GP at Karlskoga in August 1968. In 1969 Juncadella, Spice Green and Serra campaigned AMGT-2 at...

    First big run for 2022

    A quick spin down to Teretonga (215km south of me) today to participate in one of the two Motorsport NZ sanctioned events I need to do each year to keep the car’s Authority Card current. It was the first major trip outside the Dunedin City limits since the clutch release lever repair and new...
