1965 GT350/R-Model / Re: 65 roll bar
« on: October 21, 2021, 02:18:48 AM »
I had a bolt-in roll bar fabricated for my '65 Fastback. The baseplate mounts are welded to the body at select frame locations.

If I had a DeLorean, I would only drive it from time to time.

Next team in the name-change crosshairs should be the Minnesota Vikings.

I am a loyal fan of their football team. However, as a peaceful and loving Scandinavian, I am OUTRAGED at their continued portrayal of Nordics as ferocious and violent. It is time to change the name to a non-personal identifier that represents the region in a properly woke manner. Perhaps we could call them the Minnesota Snowflakes.

That was my first motorcycle - a 1966 Blue YL-1 100cc TwinJet. It needed a bit of work.
The two pistons were about the size of a silver dollar. Put out all of 9 HP and revs forever. At 15, I was on top of the world.

Looks great, Ruben! Hope you have a blast!

Like terlingua11 said, I'd also like to hear it run!

Wanted to Buy / Re: T10-M parts

Thx Mike. My transmission requirements back in '92 were simpler: stop jumping out of 2nd gear upon deceleration.

This gear was procured by my driveline guy before he absconded with my tranny. (That just sounds wrong.) This is all I have left to show for my $1400.

Is the nickel gear identification method a deep, dark secret that should not be mentioned in polite company?

I have a T-10 second gear - 30 tooth - that I've literally used as a paperweight since 1992 when my transmission was purloined.

I have a T-5 now, so no use for this gear, other than as a conversation piece. Let me know if it may interest you.

Can I trouble someone to educate me on how to identify a gear's nickel content?

Thx for the pointer 67st102. I've been looking to get this book for some time. It is now a Christmas gift to me from my wife  ::)
The shipping is a bit steep at $15.95, but it's still cheaper than Amazon.

« on: November 20, 2020, 04:37:47 PM »
Thx Vern. I appreciate the education.

5R002 is the inspiration for my '65 Mustang build. In my ignorance, I bought the Moto-Lita "Shelby Mustang OEM" 15" wheel. 
So now, Anyone wanna buy it? (Just kidding!)

On a related note, the GT350 5R002 appeared to have the slotted steering wheel with an aluminum ring showing around the rim exterior when it was auctioned this summer.

Was that unique to the '002 prototype? It looks like an AC Cobra wheel.
