    Jack lift accessori

    On the early GT40s, there's a bar in front of the radiator grill and a pair of hooks in back. The device for the jack has the opposite arrangement. It has a bar with a pair of hooks for lifting the front and extending beyond the hooks are rods on each side that go into the hooks on the rear.

    My Shiny New Trailer

    I ended up getting a custom built, enclosed, 18' aluminum trailer. I picked it up today and then loaded my GT40 to bring it in for its annual service tomorrow. It's setup with a winch, e-track, and over the tire straps. The hatches make it easy to stand outside and attach the tie-downs. I...

    SUPERFORMANCE GT40 Owners Manual

    Depending upon the nature of your trailer, I recommend either tire straps that go over the top of the tires (along the tread). This requires a trailer with holes in the bed of the trailer that the straps' hooks can go into so the straps are inline with the tires (I have a 30-year old Brian...

    Fueling an SPF Mark I

    You don't need a difference in height, you just need a pipe of sufficient diameter. Eventually the two tanks will level off, you either need patience or a diameter larger pipe. The Lotus Europa has a pair of fuel tanks, one on each side of the car, located behind the seats. Each tank has a...

    Jokes anyone? -

    Snopes has an entertaining re-butt-al for the story. https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/frozen-assets/ Among other things, the woman at Snopes points out that if it's that cold, the audience member wouldn't have rested her bare butt against a freezing bumper for more than a second.

    Does anyone have any information on this car?

    "real ford gt 40 with good vin number" Including the chassis number is, rather than saying "good vin" would be informative.

    Transport from the Pacific NW to the 2024 GT40 Reunion

    I asked a "large transport company" I've used before. They could do it, but I'd be paying for exclusive use of the entire truck for the event which would not be cheap (unless I could find other people coming from New England). If I can find a place to store the car for a week or two before and...
