    GT40 Avenger

    I just did a little checking around and I see that Fiberfab U.S. is still around. That is a bonus when it comes time for trim and glass, it looked like on the website that they have a full chassis as well. If I remember correctly can't you use a Porsche engine?

    Which OIl

    I was told by a rebuilder that owns WC engineering in the USA to use Redline 75w90 GL-5 part#58304 (no friction modifiers). I changed it in my un1 a couple of weeks ago and is definitely an improvement from what was in there but have no idea what was in the unit originally. I would take Mikes...

    DRM gems

    Great video. I had one like the orange one (stock) think it was a 74. Later I got a 76 with the v6. My last one was one I have never seen again, it was a 76 "Black Cat" edition that was black with gold pin stripes with a cat on each front fender. That black cat got the v8 put in it and it was...

    DRM gems

    Love the Capri, you don't see them anymore in the USA. I had a few of them back in my day, what a great car. I had one with a German v-6 and later I built one with a 302v8. I lost both cars over time to rust, the N.Y. winters ate the cars up. I have been looking around for one for a while but...

    Wanted Ford Granada Rear calipers

    In the U.S.A. I have seen calipers, rebuild kits, and pads on ebay. One of the listings for pads said they ship from Australia. Now I don't know this to be fact but it seems that the early Capri and Cortina have the same brakes as well but again I have not confirmed this.

    There might be some GT40 replicas at this event...

    That would be a great event to go to. My dads 08 GT500 has been sitting in my shop for about a year now, would love to take it there. They need to have a similar event on my side of the country.(N.Y.) Thanks for the heads up Wallace!

    Fire Extinguisher Plumbed Into Cockpit

    Howard, A little off topic but I have a question. I have a GTD that has the original Halon system in the front and back of the car, the system is untouched except for the Halon bottle that is now illegal to use. Is there another type of retardant that I can use in place of the Halon.

    Walter, great post! Reminds me of a time back in the day when my brother was having electrical problems with his Ford Bronco, he was under the hood in the rain "fixing things" and asked me to help him out. I got inside the truck and he asked me to turn on the wipers witch resulted in a small...

    Street Driving

    I added a camera to the top of the licence plate, my rear view mirror is now the screen. I have had a terrible time getting used to the car. My problem is that besides having next to zero visibility (before camera) I am sitting on the right side of the car in the USA. When I go to get on a major...

    I spent all day driving the car around, 80 degree day and found no temperature issues. I had a blast! I do have a few electrical issues, the white lights on the bottom do not work, the horn does not work. The tires are awesome hooks up hard, noticed it is eating up large amounts of fuel lol, I...
