    Can Am cars at Long Beach Grand Prix

    Well it's taken me a while to start this thread but here we are. What an exciting event and what a great way to get vintage racing into the forefront at a race that may not attract the typical crusty vintage racing fan. Since the Toyota Celebrity Race has been nixed, the organizers did the right...

    AP Monobloc 4-Piston Calipers

    Hello forum members, for sale I have 2 sets of 2 front calipers, part numbers CP5850-4SOM and CP5850-5SOM respectively. The reason for sale is that I will not be able to make them work with the steering axle of my car. Simply put, these components would have been the nicest on my whole car...

    That's what I'm talking about... Sign me up for one of those intakes Wolfgang. If my research is right it is the only intake for LS series engines that allows Webers. Right on!

    LMP Can Am M1C build thread

    Thanks Jim, despite my relatively young age, the shape of the McLarens were what I first remembered as a proper race car. Stefan, the car is in my trailer at a storage facility, part of the reason I am not getting much done. Don't know if that is worth your time. I will get it into my garage...

    LMP Can Am M1C build thread

    My progress has been relatively non existent as of late. I have moved from New York City back to Redondo Beach, CA and also took on a lateral move in my industry. This has kept me pretty busy and at 42 years old, even a slight reinvention of myself has taken effort. I have welcomed the...

    LMP Can Am M1C build thread

    Just moved back to So Cal and work on the car has been proceeding a little slow because that and my career. The body may be "off" but it looks fantastic to me. I don't think the car was meant to be an exact replica, and even so, you'd be hard pressed to find an M1 series that was identical to...

    Roll bar helmet pad wanted.

    Thanks Bill, however I think I need to do a better job of describing what I need. Roll bar padding is not quite what I was looking for (though I will still use it elsewhere...). I want the pad that goes behind the drivers helmet (think headrest). The photo below shows what I want; except that it...

    Roll bar helmet pad wanted.

    I've seen steering wheel pads used, but I'd like something a little more bespoke. I believe the roll bar section to be used is 1.25". Thanks for the help in advance.

    M20 Dreaming

    Excellent work Leon, that looks like significant progress in terms of time spent on your build. I have a general question about aluminum sheet metal work I hope you or other members don't mind answering. The radiused holes that you've put into the flat sheet that appear to provide lightness...

    Crash at Reno

    That the Nazi's were not socialists. It was in the name of their party fer cryin' out loud. National Socialist Worker's Party. If the German Nazi party didn't embody typical socialism, maybe you can tell "us" what does?

    Crash at Reno

    Mr Craik, that is the most comically ignorant thing I've seen in a while. No wonder we have a guy like Obama in office. Your tragic misunderstanding of history is an affront to those who suffered and sacrificed in WW2. You can't even spell Nazi, how sad. We are doomed to repeat the past with...
