    Adjustable Spring Perches For Sale (Used)

    These spring perches are the ones produced by T&A Shocks (see eBay listing). I've had them on my GT for over five years and recently upgraded to Scott Ahlman shocks.

    Intercooler Oil Vapor

    A year or so ago I installed a Moroso oil vapor separator to minimize the oil getting into and coating the S/C intercooler. I emptied the can for the first time after about 5000 leisurely miles today and I thought I would share the results with you. The can collected about 1/3 of a cup of oil...

    Spare Tires

    Like many of you I recently upgraded to Bridgestones. I saved one OEM front and one rear tire to keep as spares in an emergency. Obviously they are of little value until I get them mounted on appropriate wheels. I'll be looking for damaged OEM takeoffs as well as inexpensive cast aluminum wheels...

    Road & Track

    More New Jersey Owners

    I always thought that New Jersey GT ownership was underrepresented (at least on the Forum) considering our population and average income. I was at a spectacular C&C today in Parsippany and met two new owners, both Tungsten like mine! One took delivery last week and the other receives his next...

    Car No Start. Found Problem (I Think)

    Short version: All the symptoms of a dead battery....really dead. Hard to believe since there were no prior symptoms and I keep the car on a battery maintainer and use the car regularly. No radio, no gauges, no dash idiot lights, no horn. Barely enough juice to open the doors. Opened and closed...

    Robertson's Ford GT At Lime Rock

    I attended the ALMS race at Lime Rock today and spent a few moments with the Robertsons. They now have a second large trailer and are suddendly more popular than they were prior to LeMans! Their #1 car driven by Murray and Lazzaro finished 12th overall and 4th in class (ahead of a Ferrari by 1...
