    Southern GT #48

    I am delighted to say that I have just been to collect Southern GT chassis #48 from Mick and the team, together with a pre-cut aluminium panel set, wishbones and fasteners. Doesn't sound like much, but I'm sure it'll keep me out of mischief for a while. Collecting chassis in a LWB Merc...

    Intro from Nangkita

    Hi All, This could possibly the most belated intro considering I've been a member of the site for almost 10 years. Thought I better say G'Day. I'm not a GT40 owner/builder yet, but it'll definitely happen one day, once I finish restoring our house, build the stables for the wife, restore...
