    My son at 32 years of age just passed last Monday in a drowning accident. He was a kind hearted soul willing to help anyone. I never saw him raise his voice in anger. He was thoughtful and articulate. He was interested in many things including my crazy GT40 endeavor. Now that seems...

    Credit where credit is due.

    I just want to thank Fran and Casey for their support of my project. I ordered a piece from Fran and they delivered. It may seem to be a small thing. Something we all expect. Lately it seems we don't get even the most basic of expectations when we put our money down. Also thanks to all the...

    Rear upright clevis

    After looking at these two pictures and noticing that they have been made 90 degrees from each other where the heim joint connects, I'm wondering if there is a preferred position. Can somebody comment? I'm getting ready to machine a set and happen to run across these two styles. Pete
