    Looking at the forum history over the past ten or so years there have been several FAV style monocoque car started with only a few completed, and these were outfitted and finished by professional workshops. Build logs show that the hobbyist takes a long time - about 8-10 years. How many do...

    Hello to members!

    This is a really long shot - but I'm trying to track down a GT 40 with the registration of K40 GT. It was Blue and first registered in 1971. It's not showing on the DVLA pages. However it was a little different in that it had the Gurney Bump (or similar!) It belonged to my partners Father for...

    I have sinned - I need advise please!

    It has been 2+ years since I started and drove my Superformance GT40 MKII (standard Roush 427 single carb/RBT setup). Life had me focused in other areas. I have been storing it in a heated garage up on a lift. I think I put Stabil in the fuel system back then...not sure. I have had the...

    351 Windsor ID ??

    Hi, well I scooped up a 351 Windsor that happened to be right down the road. It's a 2-barrel intake engine. I don't have a car to put it in yet, but hey that's a minor detail :rolleyes:. Anyway, I got it home and managed to clean all the sludge off of the engine to get the block ID. The guy...

    VIN Plates

    Hi Guys I've been off the forum for quite some time and I see personal messages from years past to me asking for VIN plates. I apologize for the no response but I've been out of the country for years. That said - YES, I still make VIN plates for GT40's. FAV, FoMoCo, JWE...all of them. It's...

    Another project 56 Chevy

    Besides my Lotus build. I've decided to get back on track with my 56 Chevy pickup resto/mod. I've had it for over 20 years & had repainted the cab & front. But then got stalled by life (raising 3 boys etc). A couple of years ago I started to disassemble it again. For restoration but again got...

    End to a longtime kit car saga!

    Hello, I started my journey over ten years ago to build a mid engine kit car. I looked at the GT40, Ultima, SLC and GTM. Ultimately, I ended up getting a great deal on a partially completed GTM. That was back in 2008. Now, almost 10 years later I've finally given up. The car was really too...

    From Norway gratitude:)

    Hi I have been at this forum a while (2006) but never introduced myself. For me it started because I wanted a AC Cobra. So I followed clubcobra.com some years when a saw the GT. I knew then I had to get one someday. I live in Norway so both the tax and the rules for replica cars make this...

    Which Porsche??

    I've been thinking for some time about my next project after the '40 and a car I've always longed for is the air-cooled Porsche 911. The dilemma is which one. I love the look of the early Euro pre-impact bumper cars (think 1969-73 "long hood" models) but know little as to their ease of...
