    Dan's GTD Getting some attention

    Hi Mike, been meaning to shoot you an e-mail. I only have one car hidden away, my 67 cougar that sits unfinished behind the GTD in the pic. My dad is the one with all the hidden cars lol. He wants me next to put a 65 Mustang GT convertible that he has stripped down ready for paint together and a...

    Dan's GTD Getting some attention

    Well after working on the GTD for the last 4 years I finally have it in a good place. The car has been nothing but reliable as of lately and has been fun to drive. I decided to take on a new project and picked it up yesterday to begin my new journey. My new project is a Contemporary Cobra that...

    BF Goodrich tyres

    I don't have 24", I have 26x12x15 on the rear and 26x8x15 ready to be put on the front. I originally bought 26x10x15 but that is too wide for the front. These sizes I used I compared to what was on the GTD from the build manual. I do not run the car on the track, street only and have to say they...

    BF Goodrich tyres

    I have no issue with BFG tires, they are on many of the cars in my family. Dad has at least 6 of his cars and me and my brother each have a set on our cars. When it came to the GTD and my brothers Pantera we both bought the Mickey Thompson sportsman s/r a really nice tire with an amazing tread...

    Tell everyone every week that you are surviving this COVID19. Just add your name to the list once a week and each of us will know if you are alive.

    Still here, now back to work full time. We have 3 of us in a warehouse a 1/4 mile long so we are never near each other and are wearing masks. I plan to drive the GTD to work this week now that I can park it inside next to my office.

    Tell everyone every week that you are surviving this COVID19. Just add your name to the list once a week and each of us will know if you are alive.

    Still here, I am back to work on a 3 day workshare program. It is really strange being in a 1/4 mile long warehouse with just one other manager and one machine operator. Wife and all family and friends are doing fine and nobody sick.

    Coronavirus - Excellent Data-Based Analysis

    (DELETED per his request), What part of Neil's post did you not get. Everyone is concerned about any deaths related to the virus, however your political views of our President is not needed here. The very last reason I come to this site is to talk politics.

    Most Common Mistakes - New GT40 Owner

    I treat it like a plane, I do a before flight check list. When I first got the car I was opening everything and showing it to friends and left the nostril locks unlocked. I was driving down the street the next day and the nostril panel lifted up about 4 inches and almost flew off. Now while the...

    Grounded in self isolation

    Reading through the posts and am glad all seem to be well. I have had some great seat time. I live a couple of blocks away from a major parkway, the car being right hand drive has allowed me to get comfortable on the entrance ramps. I respect the stay at home thing but I am alone in the car and...

    Jimmy... Fort Worth, Texas, USA area

    I did a few years back, it had went to Port ST. Lucie Florida but was unable to contact owner and was kind of thinking if he was a friend of my grandfather maybe he is not around anymore. I should run the tail again I have the # at home in the build logs that were given to me.

    Jimmy... Fort Worth, Texas, USA area

    This is my grandfathers plane that he built. This is a pic from a magazine he was in. Thing that sucks is that he lived in Florida and the rest of our family lives in New York and when he was no longer permitted to fly he sold it without telling anybody and like that it was gone. I tried to...

    Jimmy... Fort Worth, Texas, USA area

    Jimmy, Was just reading your post here and I have to ask (a little off topic) You said you built a T-18? Do you mean a Thorp T-18? If you did I helped my grandfather build one in the late 80's and had flown with him in it as well. Plane lived in Stuart Florida.
