Hi

Just wondering how many members who used to post regularly still read the forum.

Names that spring to mind
Pete from Down Under along with Jac, Ross, Russ, Brian, who is still getting his car made, Norman, Chris, and loads of others from the last 15 years

American, Lynn Larsen, Faili, Hershall, Rick Merz, Howard who used to organise Calif parties! Chuck and Ryan, Jim Rosenthall etc

UK Paul Thompson, Chris Melisa, Brian Magee, Frank Catt, Paul W, Dave Morton, Keith (I actually know the last two are doing yo yo trips to hospitals but hopefully on the improve)

Then there are the Southern Africans, Andy Louboster, Jackal, Fred with his CanAm


Are you guys still around and reading, if so what will get your posts, humour and knowledge to be shared again?

What allowed you to drift away? What would bring you back?

I still read, dont post as often and in many cases dont respond to general questions when I feel the person asking could find the answer in a quick search, guess I am saying a feel some recent new members are a tad on the lazy side!:)

Thanks Jac
Yes I see you pop up and your knowledge on engines is amazing, though I must say I don’t understand all of it I have learnt a great deal from your knowledge and ability to explain stuff.

Are you in contact with any of the old guys? Russ and Lim? Though I believe he gave up on the 40and went to single seat stuff.

Thanks.

Ian, No, have not heard from Russ or Lim, last time Russ visited here he mentioned he was intending to relocate and sell the 40 and would list it here on forums, dont recall that happening. No contact with Lim either, but that is not necessarily their fault since Ive not been to a race meet for several years myself. These guys and others do still occasionally visit site though going by their stats.

Thanks guys, I was beginning to think I was the only one left still reading here.

Let’s see who else comes out the woodwork!

Cheers

I still post occasionally and feel a tad presumptuous joining in but I too would love to hear from the likes of Andre and Adam etc again, assuming it is possible.

With much help from (and many thanks to) Kaspa I am currently building a ‘homage to 60s F1’ car based on a Brabham of the era with my kids.
You are a legend John.

I still own my RF GT40.

All the best to Keith, David and anyone else battling health issues.

Tim.

Still here. But here is now Texas. I am a political refugee from the peoples republic of California. Still have the GTD but it has been retired from the track and have since built a SLC for track only.

Hi Guys, I still check in from time to time. I’ve been retired now for three fabulous years and enjoy driving driving the heck out of P/2264, she has been surprisingly dependable and still great fun! We have also been having a great time bringing our Riley Scott Cadillac LMP Car that we found here on this site back to life... not too many more years hopefully she’ll be back on track. We have a Facebook page about this called “LMP In my office” check it out.

Jim,

How many miles on P2264 now? I have often given potential GT40 customers links to your posts for proof that you can really drive a GT as well as SpyderMike's post about driving to LA with the wife, dog and luggage as "long distance" proof!

Jim,
Drive it to the Daytona 24 next year. It will be a lot more fun!
Hope you and Frances are enjoying retirement as much as Deb and I are.
See you next year!

Ian,

I read the site very often, post when it may be of use and nearing the end of my RCR build. I had back surgery last December and just resumed working on the GT40 last month. I will resume posting about my build in a couple of weeks.

Still loitering and beavering away helping customers, both replica and original chassis. Need to update the website badly. Most work now is on restorations and FIA related chassis.

Enjoy logging in regularly to see what peeps are up to.
