    250 GTO/Vella Rosa dash

    It looks like the original Alpha 1 GTO dash but without the leather look finish. The Alpha and later John Washington (Reaction Research Velo Rossa) dash is bonded to the original steel Z dash skeleton. https://www.ztrix.com/installation-guides/alphabet-dash-installation.html?highlight=WyJkYXNoIl0= This is what my Alpha 1 GTO dash looks like but it can be used with the original Z instruments. Oh, and to answer your original question, I think John lists his dash for $345.

    There is no reply button or box

    I am having this problem also and it appears to be somewhat random as well. Like Boy From OZ, I cannot reply to the "250 GTO Owners" thread. Please see if there is something you can do Dan. Thanks.
  3. For those who might be interested, John Washington from Reaction Research http://www.reactionresearch.com/automotive.html has started a new GTO Replica Register Club on Facebook. https://www.facebook.com/groups/GTORR/

    250 GTO Owners Thread

    Yes and no. I don't know what "for obvious reasons" means but John Washington has a little bit of the GTO Replica Registry (GTORR) on line as part of his Reaction Research site: http://www.reactionresearch.com/gtorr/index.html However, I think John is to busy with his other companies and endeavors so he hasn't done much with it.

    Brainstorming for V12 project

    Chelle put a BMW in her awesome Z car based 250 Ferrari GTO replica so you might want to check with her. Please note that she did stretch the wheelbase. http://forums.hybridz.org/gallery/image/8348-ferrari-gto-replica-with-v12/ I have also seen a few Z cars with Jaguar V12's in them.

    Welcome 1alfanatic, Sorry I can't help with the wheels. Most of us with wire wheels run custom Dayton wheels. Nice wheels but they are not Borrani's. Sounds like a very interesting project so how about posting a few pictures? BTW, Chelle, who posted above, has a beautiful Z based GTO with the longer wheelbase and BMW V12. She built it herself and is quite an enthusiast, so if you had any questions, I am sure she would be willing to answer them.

    Lets see your V8 in your Z.

    I know I have done this before but here's a few pics.

    Muriatic acid is the devil! Tank cleaning.

    Unless you plan on always running 100% pure gas you will have up to 10% Ethanol in it. Ethanol is nasty stuff and really hard on old cars that were not designed for it. It is amazing how much, and how fast, Ethanol absorbs moisture. Unless your tank is protected it will cause huge problems. I suggest that you might see if there is a Gas Tank RENU dealer http://www.gastankrenu.com/ in your area that that could clean and coat your tank. They did mine over 18 years ago and it is still holding up great.

    Fuel tank cleaning

    I had mine done in Sterling Heights, MI but there is a GasTankRenu place in Ann Arbor which shouldn't be to far from you. Gas Tank Renu-USA L.D. Lake, Inc 4001 Jackson Road Ann Arbor, Michigan 48103 (734) 761-7834 Larry Lake

    Fuel tank cleaning

    Mine was rusted from many years of sitting as well. I took it to Gas Tank Renu http://www.gastankrenu.com/ 11 years ago and it has been fine ever since.

    250 GTO Owners Thread

    I think he commented that he had a NASCAR fuel cell so that makes it easier to just go around it. On my car I hung the pipes under it. He also said they were Dayton wheels. Ooops, sorry TomoHawk, maybe you didn't see the other thread 250 GTO Replica on eBay http://forums.hybridz.org/topic/126672-250gto-replica-on-ebay/ he added to.

    Good looking car Lee Davis but I don't think it's a Alpha 1 GTO because of the nose and trunk. Tom Edwards was the first to put a trunk on his "Scorpion" Ferrari 250 GTO replica. Do you have a serial number? You can find it stamped in the firewall. I might be able to find it in the GTO Replica Registry or I could have it on the old Terry Watson registry list.
