GTE on Facebook

The GT-E was only available for a few brief months in 1968. Total production would not have kept the assembly line busy for more than a half day. If you know anything about a GT-E, it is important, and this is the place to share it. The GT-E registry is maintained by Jim Pinkerton.

Royce,

I am the owner and builder of the topic car here. As I have said before, I respect your opinions and counsel more than anyone I can think of. I would love to speak with you and get your input as I prepare my car for Mecum Indy Fall Special in about 3 weeks.

One question in particular is the correct tire for the car. Can you confirm this is the right tire?:

Jim Pinkerton has my cell number if you are willing to give me a call.
