Thanks for the response to resetting my email address question.
I'm not familiar with this site...I cant find "my settings"
Can you tell me where it's located?
Sorry to be such a pest!

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.

To get to My Settings, go to the top of the page, near the right, and click on your username.

 

How did you manage a second tail pipe without hitting the fuel tank?  Which wheels did you get?

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.hybrid...eplica-on-ebay/ he added to.

That's a nice garage.  It's nice & clean. I have 7 inch Daytons, per the original 1963 spec.  People tell me I need wider wheels in the back, but not at $800 each.

I had submitted about 20 really lousy pictures taken with my iPhone.

However, they were submitted to the Non Teck post.

Can anyone guide me as to getting them sent/reposted on the General Topics and 250 GTO Owners post?

I really don't want to have to find those pics again on my phone.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Got it! Thanks...now, I still can't get my email changed from office to home. When I went to my settings/email the second time attempting to get it changed again, it said my home email already exists, but I continue to get all correspondence on my original office email. Any thoughts? Thanks!

I am wondering if there is any interest in a threshold plate that says Ferrari, Stainless steel. These would be the ones that Skillard.com makes right now for the Datsun.

 

I emailed him and is open to the idea if we have enough interest.... anyone besides me??

 

I ask that you please comment here and he can see there is an interest since he is on this board.

 

Thank you!

If you offered a set to me for free, I would turn you down.  The reason is that these cars were just not that fancy,  there was no ventilation fan, rear-window defogger, not even carpet on the floor, except for a few exceptions by the private owners.  I've looked at photos of the door doors, and they were either plain, or bare-  no metal at all; all you could see was the frame which is otherwise covered. on street cars.

 

You  need to stay with your goal of building a GT car or a race car.  The race cars were bare-bones vehicles, but the GT car were sometimes afforded a bit of car or the diamond-pattern vinyl on the transmission tunnel.

 

If you really wanted to put something there, I'd suggest just a flat piece of metal, cut from a sheet, (not bent, like the Datsun piece is) with the script OR the logo (be careful of putting the word FERRARI on it, unless you like lawsuits, but the Cavallino speaks lots.)  a brushed texture would be plenty of 'fancy.'

While I appreciate you gave input, I don't " need to stay with your goal of building a GT car or a race car. "

That is not *my* goal. My goal is to have a car with an awesome look and the power behind it. I want my lady to be happy to ride in the car with me because it is comfortable and looks nice. I don't want a strictly street beast. ...

I finally got ahold of the seller, he said it sold within 30 min. of the posting last night.
