    Sad Story, Ok ending... DO YOUR HOMEWORK FIRST!

    If memory serves, this post was discussed here. Sort of a happy ending, at least it got to end of job. Great post to read. Almost as exciting as the missing Daytona Coupe-Phil Spector's (sp?) old car. Steve, I know your car was completed there. I recall delays, but because of transaxle...

    Poor Man's e-Bay......

    Poor Man\'s e-Bay...... Ok, we all kicked around the idea of a poor mans e-bay for parts on the forum. I'll go out on a limb & give it a shot! Below, I have listed some extra's from my CAV build. I'll take the best 'reasonable' offer for these parts as of Monday morning, November 15th, and...

    In need of CAV Headlight - LHD

    All, does anyone have a NIB CAV headlight for a US car? One of mine is cloudy & opaque. Looks to me like the bulb exploded, but the high & low beams are still working. Can't explain it. Thanks, Tom

    CAV Owners Manual

    Hi Folks, I was able to get my hands on a CAV Owners Manual. Not sure, but I believe it would be ok for me to reproduce for CAV owners (First Generation) who either did not get a manual when they bought their car new, or if it has traded hands, it did not come with the car. John, please let...

    Anyone ever have to trouble-shoot Smith's electronic speedo?

    Anyone ever have to trouble-shoot Smith\'s electronic speedo? Hi guy's... Just wonedering if anyone has ever had any luck in fixing this goofy problem. I have Smith's instruments and when the parts arrived, a VDO electronic pick-up was shipped. That did not work and I have since received a...

    Cushion material for where glass parts come together???

    Hi guy's, Just wondering what the majority of people are using to cushion the fiberglass where the bonnet & boot (front trunk & engine cover) come down & meet the main chassis. The CAV I own has 3/8 inch strips of thin foam that is adhesieve backed. I would prefer something harder, either...

    The New CAV - Auto Futura

    Hi Folks, Just wanted to pass along a pleasant experience I recently had that I feel given past posting merits open discussion. As you may recall, I acquired one of the last CAV GT's in January 2004; #67 from Bob Lacy. I felt that I knew most of the story & that was all I needed to know at...

    How much does water expand per degree?

    Hi guy's, Need to borrow some brains please. I took more shop than academic's. In attempting to solve the boil over problem I have, can one of you really bright fellows tell me how much water expands per degree? Let's say I have a gallon of water at 90 degrees ambient temperature. If the...

    CAV Owners...One more time please....

    Made mention of this in another post. The plastic covering over a fuse (as well as the plastic on the fuse itself) melted off, and fell on the floor. Did not have time to trouble-shoot it then, but after looking at it this evening, it appears to be either the fuse to the fan motor, or the...

    BUYER BEWARE

    Below is a link to a GT40 on e-Bay. Buyer beware. Seller is a member since...TODAY! Is a three (3) day auction. Few pictures. Less detail for what the car should have listed. Just does not smell right. No reserve. Car at $610.00 US right now. I have a feeling this will be a good lesson...

    CAV Owners out there...

    Have any of you had any problem with boiling the water out of the block, after the system has been properly bled? Also, it appears that the system uses a non-US car radiator cap. Any idea what make/model it is, or where I could pick one up to try that. I went with a Stant 180 degree t-stat...

    Dynamat

    I saw the post regarding Dynamat a few months ago, so when my car was finished, I went down to the local stereo shop and bought a small Dynamat kit. It was a well spent 100.00. I got four (4) good sized pieces, and set about filling the side on my doors. The doos always sounded good when the...

    CAV #67 Build Up....

    Hi Folks, Thought I'd post where I am at. The car hit the LA doc's just over 2 weeks ago Thursday. Bob Lacy met the container the next Tuesday after it cleared customs and slapped some tires on the car. I asked for Goodyears, and he kindly oblidged me. I had wanted Halibrands in a bad way...

    First Drive in a GT40..........Finally!!!!

    Well, going into this, I had no idea of what to expect. Worst case, I’d waste 25K AA Miles. Perhaps it is my direct sales experience, where I set low expectations for myself and thus am never really disappointed by a customer (I take a lot of “no’s” before I get a "yes"!). Possibly, it’s...
