Thats right guys Roaring 40's is entering a GT40 into this years 24hr Bathurst race in class 10. They are in the process already of preparing the car which includes 18inch wheels.Maybee they can show that yellow lemon about a thing or two.
Can you shed some more light on thisd mick? What exactly are the specifications of this car? Is it just a replacia of the GT40's of old. What motor's ect? This sound's good but I'd like to know more details before i get too excited.

Wow I hope this does happen! I can't think of a more awesome sight than a GT40 flying down Conrod as the sun is rising! There is no greater Ford IMO than the GT40. The car built to thrash Ferrari at Le Mans - and it did! "Can't buy 'em, beat 'em"
I know its only going to be a replica, but still, its going to rock. Its going to be very interesting to see what sort of performance it has too.
BAII XR6T, Lightning Strike, M6, Sports Steering Wheel, 18" Wheels.

I actually went down to the shop last year with a couple of guys from work. It was awesome. Robert Logan is a champ, took the time to show us everything around the shop. He had 4 of them in there being built. He has a few full time staff, they build everything from scratch and I mean everything, prob the only thing they don't build is the gearbox. He seems to be a bit of a ford nut as well. I suggest if you have a day to spare to give him a call and see if you can get the grand tour like we did.
Truly the deepest kiss one can feel, and the one most sought after, is the one you will not survive....
I agree, Robert Logan is a champ. He hosted the GT club down there about 2 years ago, and I was totally blown away and fell in love with a car I had never seen before.
For the earlier post wanted to see a 500HP 427, well its better than that. 480HP from a 302 with full Motec. The cars are truly an awesome performance option. I would certainly take one before a Monaro 427.
I have often thought it would be a good racing option if someone came up with the money. For Robert and his employees sake, I hope they take the mountain apart. They certain deserve it.
Chevs may go, but theres nothing like a HO!
