    GT40 Avenger

    I agree with Neil. The Avenger never was, never will be a GT40 type car.

    Michael's GT-R Build

    One early suggestion, get that **** bicycle out of the garage where you have your GTR. Nothing good has ever happened when there is a set of handle bars around a nice car.

    An option if you miss the political discussions we had in the Paddock.

    Its been nice over the last months without all the political harangue and dueling personal attacks. I wondered how long it would take those who lost there place to vent all this diatribe. Now we know. My position remains the same, if you want political rancor, there are 1000's of websites you...

    Four Post Lift Recommendation

    I have a All-Car-Park-8 four post 8000lb. lift in my home garage. This became a necessity due to the fact I had four cars and the community I moved to only had three car garages max. The ceiling is just over nine feet high. The garage door tracks and the opener had to changed to accommodate...

    Wouldn't it be cool to trailer your Mercury GT40 with a F-I Mercury pickup. Sure make all those Acadian owners jealous!

    License Plate Solutions

    Bob, I doubt that very many states would accept installing a plate inside the clam. Has anyone else tried this installation.

    Barett Jackson just sold a 2011 SL-C - anyone here?

    Most of the big auction companies allow sellers to establish a minimum, a reserve, which gives the seller some control over selling their vehicle. Barrett had more than 1800 cars for sale at Scottsdale and only three very expensive cars had a reserve. Generally, replica and or kit cars don't...

    License Plate Solutions

    Here's a pic of my plate on my CAV. Had to trim the plate slightly. Note the backing plate that mounts the backup camera. Also, I do have an extra large 40. LOLLOL

    Filling Tanks--Fuel Cutoff

    So Chris, what have you determined about miles per gallon from your car? What size engine do you have and do you know what your final gear ratio is?

    GT40 For Weekend Cruiser

    Bill, you are asking the wrong question. It's not how old we are, it's how young are you. My bosses used to say to me when I was a youngster, its not what you think you know, its what you don't know!

    GT40 For Weekend Cruiser

    Dwight your definition of a fun weekend and mine are polar opposites. I agree with Cliff Beers that using a 40 for a "weekend" transport is not a good idea. These cars were designed for a single purpose and it wasn't for a weekend getaway. Even taking my car to a local show really stretches...

    Hey Walt, looks like a Chicago election to me. I still say that Zimmer is really sweet.

    Superformance Future GT 40

    I'm kind of a classic guy. Prefer originality over updating. At $180K for a roller, I'll keep my CAV.

    New 40?

    Also was at SEMA and saw and spoke with representatives at both car locations. Cars are presented as a limited edition contemporary GT40. Priced at a very high level. Wondering if we aren't seeing the limit of pricing for a continuation/replica GT40? Also is this a case of a high tide lifting...

    Bill's CAV #193 Build - Canadian Made

    Bill, regarding installing seat and track to the floor, my #40 CAV has bolts welded to the inside of the tracks that penetrate through the floor. Washers that look like a bell fit over the protruding threads and a nut nestles inside the washer. You need to trim the excess shaft extending...

    Mechanical Speedo/electronic Transmission

    When I modified my Getrag transaxle, I wanted to get rid of the analog style speedo sensor. My CAV had a VDO speedo (Smiths replica) that was both analog and GPS capable. Installed a VDO GPS speed sensor. Easily installed and no wires from trans to speedo head. Accuracy is great and no needle...

    Question, how are the sunglasses sitting on the window sill staying put?
