    Well, I decided to take the plunge, but in a different direction. 1972 914, no engine or trans or interior at the moment, but some nice go fast bits since it was raced a bit. Will be dropping in an LS2 or LS3 and a Cayman S/GT4 or Boxter S 6 speed. Already has 16x9 Maxilite Fuchs, SSBC big...

    What’s up with this GT110/X-1?

    A bunch of those photos look like the ones out of the GT40 Photo Archive by Brian Winer and Wallace Wyss. I believe Wallace is/was a member here.

    Does anybody know where this GTD GT40P is currently

    That car originally belonged to Farhad. I believe it has changed hands at least once since he sold it because I have seen it for sale at a dealership after he sold it. Ian

    Carbon fiber gt40?

    There are other photos online, the panels are definitely CF. The chassis is space frame with CF panels rivetted and glued on AFAIK. Ian

    Difference in GT40 model kits

    In a nutshell, yes ... they are all replicas. Some are more accurate than others, but since they were not built in the 60s (or in the case of the original Safir MkVs up through the early 80s I believe), they are replicas. Ian

    Restoration Project?

    According to the comments on the "Where is it now?" thread: Per Robert Gressard "The car is 1070P. It has no racing history. It exploded in 1969 in Akron Ohio on RT 18. Notice the hubs and uprights are missing. A new car was built around them and the title. I owned it for 32 years." "The...

    Engine power!

    Well, if you want to upgrade your power, yes, the transaxle is the limitation. But you should also look at your brakes - you'll need to stop too :)

    Not new but now need a GT40 in my life

    Inching closer to pulling the trigger on a GT40 myself ... finalizing which way to go and clearing garage space. Crushed the tip of my middle finger last week, and nearly lost it. So, small set back ...

    And Now for Something Completely Different...

    I've been playing since I was 14, though I took a break from serious playing for about 15 years. Picked it back up again last year, trying to shake the cobwebs off. I have a 1987 US Kramer Baretta and a 1974 Fender Strat Tobacco Burst. The Strat was modded when I bought it in '84 (my first...

    HELP Looking for information on this orange Superformance GT40 SPF 2214

    2214 was owned by David Briggs who used to post quite a bit here. You can search for info on the car. He owned a CAV, but wrecked it pretty hard. That's why the motor and trans in 2214 originally came from a CAV. He posted about it here as well. Ian
