    Trailer Modifications for NFGT

    I realized I needed to modify my GT trailer to fit the new GT. First, I needed the base almost 3" wider, and second, because the door is further forward and hinges upward, my trailer side door had to change. I ended up with linear bearings on the roof and having the side door slide rearward...

    Back to South Dakota

    Lynn and I have a second home north of Scottsdale, AZ, and because of the "Ford V Ferrari" movie premier event, I brought my '05 GT. I decided to leave it here to use and enjoy for the winter. I'm pretty sure "Black Tip" enjoyed it too. It was the first time I'd had my GT here. We had fun...

    Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires are terrible!

    Even with the wing deployed for more down-force the cornering is still poor.

    Paybacks are a bitch

    This happens to all married guys, right? But seriously, I had no idea what I was getting into! After all the years of her going to car events, and shows, I told Lynn that I would take her to this little "quilting, sewing, and crafts fair in Phoenix. Who knew it would be this unbelievably...

    Can anyone identify this autograph? Camilo couldn't remember when I asked him, but thought it was from the build team. It's on the car I bought from him.

    Wall Art

    After a friend visited last summer (GKW05GT), he was giving me grief about having so much art laying around. This winter I decided to do something about it and framed over 50 paintings and photos. I have one wall done, and wanted to share. I believe we got the large top left GT40 painting...

    GT merorabilia found.

    We bought a 2nd home in Cave Creek, AZ a year ago, and I just met a neighbor down the street. He worked for Saleen on the Ford Gt project as the logistics manager among other things. He had a bunch of memorabilia he was going to take to the pawn shop. I immediately scooped it all up. He also...

    GT trailer

    I thought that a good winter project would be to inclose my "Texas Roll-back" trailer. So I bought a tig welder, learned how to weld aluminun, and started in. The GT is the widest car I have, and I made it to "just" fit for easy towing (in hind sight I would give it another inch at the...

    Country Club Racetrack

    Has anyone here been involved in one of the "Country Club" racetracks? Winters get longer every year in South Dakota. I tell my wife we could buy a second home somewhere way south of here, but my cars are all here. I have a large (12 -14 car) heated shop, and I spend a lot of time tinkering...

    Overdriving Headlights

    I did my first night drive in the country a week ago, and found I had to be very careful with the headlights on dim. They have a definate bright to total black line on the road ahead, and even way on both sides of the road. It is totaly dark above this line. I don't think I can adjust them...
