    Hello from New Zealand

    Welcome Gary. Good to have another Kiwi here and another GT40 making its way to NZ shores. I keep a registry of GT40’s and owners in NZ only, and currently have records for 45. You’ll find some great info and clever heads in these pages.

    NZ GT40 Register - numbers so far

    As some of you may know, I have been collecting information on all GT40's in NZ. I began this in March 2020. It's actually been very rewarding making contact with the owners. There's such a wealth of scratch-built talent here in NZ. Here is the breakdown so far Total cars = 25 Consists of...

    Database for all GT40s in NZ

    Hi everyone. I have for a while now been compiling a list of GT40s in NZ. If you have a GT40, be it an unfinished project, a track car, or a registered car, I would love to hear from you. I’m only really after 6 items, being a name, a general area or city, MKI etc, motor, trans, and a photo if...

    Nice work. Looks like you owe that man a beer! PS Took my old classic truck for a run recently and it broke down when the MSD coil failed. Rang home for another and while I waited for it to arrive, there was a steady procession of people stopping and seeing if they could help. It was a...

    Scratchbuilt 'Kiwi 40' goes racing.

    Russ and Lim Very sorry to see your pride and joy in that state. At least Russ you survived with injuries you can recover from which is, I guess, the most important thing. I wish you a speedy and full recovery. I know that everyone in this forum will be feeling for you right now and out...

    Are our kiwi buddies OK?

    A little update: There were two aftershocks during the night last night, 5.2 and 5.4. Some buildings that were previously given the okay are now being reassessed due to the continued quakes. Seismologists have stated that traditionally the biggest aftershock is normally around 1 pt less than...

    Are our kiwi buddies OK?

    Most of my immediate family live in Christchurch. My sister had a hole open up on her lawn, and a mountain of sand got pushed up followed by a large amount of water which flooded the backyard, then it all got sucked back again and the yard now looks relatively normal again. Weird. My heavy 6...

    The italian racing Superformance

    I think Ron that here in NZ at least, the Porsche fraternity wouldn't be seen dead with a 944 or its variant. Too cheap for their liking me thinks - which means commoners like me could afford one. The Horror...!

    Chris, have you ever counted how many fingers they wave you off with. Is it five or much less than five?:wiseguy: I live in a house up a 100m long driveway that must pass about 8 houses before you make it to the road. On a Sunday morning I don't take anything out that will wake the...

    The italian racing Superformance

    Hi Paolo Nice photos. Did you manage to get any pics of the engine bay area? I haven't seen the chassis plate in the position behind the driver as shown in the photo above. Is that normal or has the owner moved it there? Regards Cam Auckland, NZ

    Earthquake in NZ

    I remember attending a course in Wellington, an area which is well documented for minor quakes. While in the lecture, we experienced a small shake. Being from near Ch-Ch I had not been in many quakes. So out of a room of 35 or so people, I was the only one to get off my chair and half slide...

    Can't find 917 thread

    Thanks Curtis I couldn't for the life of me figure out what I was doing wrong. After using your link and finding out it was in the GT40 marketplace, I searched it again and still it wouldn't come back to me from the search. Turned out that my search had somehow been set to only search one...

    Can't find 917 thread

    Hi All There was a thread regarding a 917 for sale, and I now can't find it. Maybe the car sold and the thread has been removed? If it still exists can someone point this computer-challenged kiwi in the right direction. Thanks Cam Auckland, NZ

    2010 Ultimate Track Car Challenge by GRM

    Ron Can I suggest in order for you to gain a greater audience on this site and therefore more votes for the car, you change the thread title from 'Re: 2010 Ultimate Track Car Challenge by GRM' to 'Free GT40 jackets, t-shirts, and caps.' It'll draw them in like moths to a flame:thumbsup...
