    Le Mans Classic 2018

    Anybody have a line on which and how many original GT40s (or cars pretending to be original) will be racing this year? Will there be a paddock for GT40 street cars? Hope to see some of you there! :thumbsup:

    What happened to the SPF forum???

    Just noticed the SPF forum is gone??? What possible reason could there be for destroying such a valuable resource? For SPF owners (and wannabes like me) it is the principle reason this site even exists--and the principle reason we choose to support it with cash contributions from time to time...

    Hi guys, Here's a great photo showing how things were done back in the day. Valve cover off, mechanic attending to the valvetrain (note one of the rocker arms looks a bit wonky), with a handful of tools balanced on the tire, and pieces/parts/tools just waiting to get lost in the grass...

    Pantera ZF bellhousing needed

    Guys, I know lots of you have purchased ZF gearboxes from Panteras for fitment in your GT40s. Typically they are sold with the Pantera bellhousing included, which isn't suitable for GT40 use; thus I presume there are lots of them gathering dust in your garages. A fellow in Europe is...

    Guys, A Mangusta-owning friend named Tom Galli has a GT40-ready Dash-1 ZF for sale. It came out of a 1971 Pantera, so it has the 4.22 ring and pinion (his Mangusta has a 4.50 R&P). He sent it to Lloyd Butfoy who completely rebuilt it, and modified it to run inverted in proper GT40/Mangusta...
