Re: Personal Thanks

Thanks Clint! It has been a wild ride and it feels great to be this close to finishing the restoration and starting the next chapter where I get to drive it. There will be an update my crazy restoration in the next GTE Newsletter, by the way...

Re: GTE Seat Covers

Yes, I agree, patina adds to the charm. The idea would to only use it on summer days where it regularly gets over 100 degrees here.

GTE Seat Covers

As 4247 GT will be coming home to California mid-summer, I would like to get covers for the front seats. With our high temperatures and no air conditioning, sweat is going to be a problem. Has anybody found good ones?

Re: Personal Thanks

No problem. Being named Tommy, having a father named Mr. Wilson and a brother named Dennis, I have gotten quite used to it... 😜

Re: Personal Thanks

When I first found my car in 2000, Tom was one of the first people I contacted. I searched online and his was the only name that came up! The site was primitive by today's standards, but hosted a great group of people who were determined to save the GTE. Today 4247 GT is in the final stages of its r...

Re: GTE water temp switch

I bought a used one from GTO Engineering and at the time they had 2 or 3 more. I did this because I was unable to find anyone who could rebuild mine.

GTE from Charlotte NC

Many years ago we were searching for this car that was spotted in North Carolina. It just popped up at Gullwing Motorcars and is 2325 GT, the Maranello Concessionaire's road tester. Anybody up for a project?

Re: Source for trunk lock

BobA loaned me the lock from his car and it works great. Also, Cornelis alerted me to a lock on Italy's ebay that I picked up. It won't be here in time for Cavallino, but it will be great when Bob want his back! Thanks guys.
