Love the car! Your English is better than our French so don't worry about that!
finding rims in good condition is difficult. I bought 6 rims to get 2 ok and 2 limits. If I lived in the US, I could make the sweet map and choose good rims. Unfortunately I live in France and I can only buy at blind ...
I live in Auvergne, Brioude. I'm 40 miles from Clermont Ferrand. Without knowing it you all know this city. It is the cradle of Michelin. It is also the mythical circuit of Charade, which is for me the most beautiful natural circuit of the world. Unfortunately because of environmentalists there is almost no organized race .....
I find SCTA stikers but not waterslide. I am looking for an SCTA approved old style logo.
For my english it is necessary to thank the automatic translator !!!!!!
Car looks great!
Love your car. The wire wheels really set it off.
WOW / Perfection
great work phil !!! hope i meet you one day in a meeting
Hi Phil, OK, so your nowhere near the coast of Britain but have you ever tried the British NSRA swapmeet in March ? Just outside London. It's big, has everything and trading is FAST.
Cool! I have been to Clermont Ferrand to the Michelin facility. That is a beautiful area. I am in charge of the Ford GT racing team, so I will be in LeMans again this June. Good luck with the hot rod!

An old photo of me in 2004 in Donnington, England. I was in charge of Team France for BMW France. At the time the Boxer Cup (international cup BMW) was taking place in opening of Grand Prix motorcycle.
Nice looking car, Phil(lippe?)
I'm also pleasantly surprised at the various backgrounds of all the people on the HAMB. Lemans, racing, tech, etc
Fantastic Phil - great looking car and you'll have a LOT of fun in it. What stickers are you looking for? I am happy to search for you.
We are all mechanical enthusiasts. Personally I love everything that has an engine. For me the hot rodding is the oldest and most popular root of sports passion, of mechanical and attractive modification of automotive world.
I search stickers type "waterslide paper". Old style salt flats racing.
Very cool 33 Phil, love the stance. My grandfather was born over in Gap, Hautes-Alps.
