    Nice film of the gt 40 at spa

    Thought everyone might enjoy this short film of the JD Classics GT 40 entry at Spa. Some lovely shots of the car sliding through the corners with Bruce Mclaren adding some period commentary. You might have to paste the clip to your browser to see the film. BTW, I have no affiliation with JD...

    Claude nahum

    Another note from Amelia Island. I am aware of Mr. Nahum only because of this forum and as many of you know it's always nice to put faces to names when the opportunity presents itself. This past weekend was such a case. Mr. Nahum, for those of you who may not know, is the owner of at...

    Amelia island 2016

    Even though I sold my beloved GT 40 it doesn't mean I don't clerish the car like no other. This past weekend I had the pleasure of seeing one of the rare MK III versions sitting toward the front of Friday's tour drive and enjoyed a chat with its owner and a young fellow who had managed to...

    A new era?

    I attended the Historic Race at Daytona this weekend put on by HSR. I also attended last years inaugural event and feel this years didn't quite muster up to lasts. Sure, there were plenty of cars but not enough to satisfy my craving for what I would arguably call the "Golden Era" of...

    New ford gt

    While picking up CAV # 082 at Daytona Raceway I was a little surprised to see not 1 but 2 of the new FORD GT's in the paddock being scrutinized by a group of lap-top holding FORD geniuses. Each engineer had a role to fill and was busy going about their duties to prepare the cars for testing...

    Oddest GT40 Trips...

    Rick, very cool story......no pun intended! Although a major thread drift (maybe we should move it to its appropriate spot) I find stories like yours interesting and entertaining. My question to this eclectic group would be: What are the oddest things owners have done with their 40's (if...

    016 to 01E

    Gents, I've been on this sojourn for some time but I'm finally getting ready to pull the trigger on making the swap. Scott Dewitt sold me an 01E with Wavetrac some months ago and with life getting in the way I just never got round to putting it in the car. I have CAV #082 with an 016 and...

    Lot 156 1967 Ford GT40 Mk IV Continuation by Kar Kraft To be auctioned on Thursday, January 15, 2015 Sold for $660,000 Chassis no. J-16 Sold at RM Auctions. Probably market correct (IMO) given pricing of Gelscoe cars and others who produce mirror images of these great machines...

    World's best lola's?

    Imagine my surprise to learn that probably the worlds best LOLA builder is just over an hour from me in Central Florida. Mac McClendon builds some of the worlds best LOLA'S and ships them world wide. (most to Europe) I called him to ask if his brilliant engine builder would mind taking a...

    Now's your chance

    I tried posting this on the GT40s FOR SALE SECTION but understand the need for permission but I thought all of yous out there in GT 40 land would like to see if you've got a few spare laying around to buy what I would consider the best REPLICA available. Very nice indeed...

    Thinking of buying a gt 40?

    For those of you who might be considering taking the plunge on a GT40 you would do well to consider a CAV. OK, sure I'm biased because I own one, but a recent request for parts from the factory was met with direct emails with a staff member (Candice) who ALWAYS responded within 12-24 hours...

    GT 40 Gold Parts

    They say the devil is in the details so every now and again I try to add something to CAV #82 that was fitted to the originals and in this instance I added a small but I feel unique piece that I doubt SPF or even the superb house of GELSCOE puts on their cars. I went to Andrew at GT 40 Gold...

    GTD seats

    On another thread Dandy Don mentioned seeing a GTD for sale at LAKESIDE LLC, in MICHIGAN and asked about the GTD cars. I took a peek at the photos and saw something I'd like to know if anyone can help me with. Does anyone know where I can get a set of those seats? Those are as close to...

    Lynn miner gt 40 id plates

    I'm a tough guy to please when it comes to any work being done on my CAV GT40. That includes any parts used or work performed. Sadly, there have been a few times when some mechanic's didn't have the same work ethic as I do or the same desire to do things right the first time but then had no...

    RUSH the MOVIE

    I saw RUSH over the weekend and wanted to give my .02. If I had to summurize the movie in a word I'd use "ENTERTAINING." I was entertained throughout the entire film and felt Mr. Howard did a pretty damn good job of intertwining racing footage with the overall theme of the movie that being; the...

    Got life?

    For any of you who may have kept copies of old "LIFE" magazines (remember them?) check these two editions. JUNE 25TH, 1965 & AUGUST 16TH 1968. In the middle of the former is a two page COLOR spread paid for by FORD where they show a very nice side photo of an early version of the GT40. You...
