    Road trip

    Well done, Brian!!! I am incredibly jealous. This couldn't happen to a nicer or more deserving guy. You're the best. The photos of your car are really stellar. There is nothing better or meaner looking than a GT40 coming at you with its lights lit up.

    Jokes anyone? -

    "Why didn't you show up for your shift yesterday? We had to cover you the whole time." "I'm sorry- I was becoming a father." "Really? Congratulations!! Boy or girl?" "I'll let you know in nine months, lol" "You're fired."

    Jim, is therre a page in your thread which shows the cars completed? I've admired what you are doing and wondered what stage you had reached in my absence, but I couldn't find photos on a quick review. Thank you.

    Source for pre 1975 302 blocks

    Right. Apparently the iron alloy in the Mexico blocks was stronger- I recall reading this in a book on SBF performance. I think I paid $250 for mine, it was in Norther Virginia and I had to drive over there and put it in my trunk. That was a while ago, to befure.

    Jimmymac & Alistair's Cars

    Yes, they are mosquito bites, the bugs are quite large in Florida. They will even bite cars.

    Source for pre 1975 302 blocks

    Try to find a 302 Mexico block if you can. Says "Hecho en Mexico" cast into the block IIRC. Mind you, this knowledge is two decades old now.

    1149 Mono Replica

    Hello to all, I got an email from Graham who emailed me by mistake and is probably regretting waking up this old decrepit monster.... anyway, a shout out to all. 1149 has had her carbs overhauled by Ron, and I hope to get them back on and get her running post haste. While we still have driving...

    Ford vs. Ferrari--New Official Trailer

    I sat in Bill Wonder's car years ago, spent the day with him up in PA talking about GT40s. Lots of cool memories, he had. The car was a brown-maroon color. He used to fire it up and drive it to the barbershop on Saturday mornings. LOUD. At the time I saw it, it had a 4-cam Indy engine in it...

    1149 Mono Replica

    Hello to all. I got a message from Ian to say hello... which reminded me that I used to hang out here a lot and then kind of moved along once the car was completed. Anyway, a brief update: the car was completed, and running. Then I forgot to drain the water from the cooling system in the winter...

    Jimmymac & Alistair's Cars

    Ah, she's looking fine. Can't wait to see this one up on her feet and running around making trouble. How is Alastair's car coming along?

    1149 Mono Replica

    Well, the Meguiar's guys didn't buff it for free. That was six years ago, and they still haven't called me back. But, seriously, folks... My friend Ron McCall mentioned to me the other day that he'd gotten a hello from some old friends here, to pass on to me- one in the UK and one in "down...

    I'd like to know, too. Since I bought a few copies, paid in advance.

    Boehner is HISTORY!!!

    ..just like the Democrats have been hijacked by thugs and zealots from faaaaaaaaaaar left. No, we haven't, Larry. Not all of us believe that government should provide a free lunch for anyone. The difference between us is that I've read your agenda and you haven't read mine. I'm plenty...

    Boehner is HISTORY!!!

    I edited poorly above- my apologies. The piece is from today's NYTimes (don't bother reading it, Larry, okay?) and when I copied it, other things came over as well. I will try to fix it. My point of view stands, as I'm sure you know.

    Boehner is HISTORY!!!

    REPUBLICANS aren’t big fans of Karl Marx, but perhaps they should ponder his observation that history repeats itself first as tragedy, then as farce. As preposterous presidential candidates dominate the polls and extremists topple congressional leaders, the Republican Party is headed for a...

    Boehner is HISTORY!!!

    Boehner will be succeeded by someone even less functional. Watch. You can't herd cats. You guys are missing the point here. Boehner got sick of being beat over the head by the teabaggers and finally said fuck it. The GOP has been hijacked by thugs and zealots.

    Migrant crisis: a solution.....

    I'm not including you in my disapproval here, Keith. I'm appalled by what I see as the racist rewriting of the facts based on a priori bigotry. It makes me sick. Every American on this forum is descended from people who came here as an "economic migrant", unless they are American Indians by...

    Migrant crisis: a solution.....

    Well, no surprises here. I'm embarrassed by the remarks above. As fellow car guys, I admire you all. As human beings, who ought to have some compassion, I'm considerably less enthralled with all of you, and I'm being more polite on this than I ought to be. But there's enough vitriol here for...
