  1. Stumbled across this flickr site - source of some neat photos... Paul Newman Racing http://www.flickr.com/groups/1221030@N22/pool/with/2631029047/#photo_2631029047
  2. can you share some details on the IMSA?? any drivetrain mods (beside the suspension)?? Thanks Gordon
  3. Grandstands 11 and 15 at normally the most popular. Grandstand 11 allows a view of the start and the first couple of corners. If you sit on the "north" side, you'll also see them heading up the hill into the next corner. I personally would try Grandstand 15 as you can see them approaching the hairpin as well as exiting...(it's one of the few places on the track they can pass). That said, I haven't attended in person in several years as I refuse to pay the $$ they're asking for a seat. Enjoy the experience...
  4. Eastern Ontario uses the same setup as Nova Scotia for the cities and highways...but some local privateers have the salt box that slides into the pickup truck bed with the rear spreader... It's always best to give them room as they terrorize the mall and office parking lots...
  5. The Rally Sport Ontario website provides links to several rally navigation tutorials at http://www.rallysport.on.ca/index.php?fuseaction=site.details&id=65 and although most are here in Ontario, you might be able to find similar information on a more local club's website.. Good luck...
  6. They drive like any rear-wheel drive sports car in the snow... put 4 snows on, a couple of sand bags in the hatch, and enjoy. Of course, if the car is lowered, make sure you're not the one opening the road after the fresh snow fall... I would suggest a good rust proofing too...
  7. I agree with Frank's suggestion for the Yokohama tires, but would also consider Toyo or Kumho tires as other choices. Much will depend on the size of tire needed and your budget...
  8. Greg also made the "front page" of the Speed-tv.com report http://auto-racing.speedtv.com/article/scca-55th-june-sprints-concludes-at-road-america/
  9. The April 15 photo provided by Rob - the blue Z is Diane Dale of Toronto who runs vintage with VARAC... see http://www.whiteheadperformance.com/Gallery/index.php?cat=5 for more pictures of Diane's Z.
  10. Arne and AJ - I've been checking in regularly , and watching my PMs - but haven't seen/heard anything at this end either. GWGarrard
  11. Rust showing inside the fender well is pretty much normal, and if the frame rails and floors are solid you found an excellent starting point. Enjoy...
  12. Obviously my memory is lacking regarding the quantity :stupid:...all I remember is using a discarded beer bottle to pour the oil in...
  13. Oil in the strut casings is to reduce heat, not for rust prevention...add about 15-20 oz (i think).. GWGarrard
  14. Peter - I have a complete 2.25" custom system not installed in the barn...It is mated (?) to a 76 manifold... The issue for me is getting down to the barn...(Thousand Island Bridge area)... If Dan knows of the "card system", and just doesn't have them for the Z car, perhaps another muffler shop would be willing to lend him what he needs. Just a thought.... Regards GWGarrard
