Canadian GT-E Found

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.

I love stuff like this. Loads of nostalgia. I can only assume by the photos the Asian gentleman is that original owner, and his name is Jack Sing. I think his biography with the car would be a great read just because I like that sort of thing. Sometimes I think "if only my car could talk" Well this one can :)

This blue GTE appears to be an XR-7. Would that be correct? If it is correct just curious as to what happened to the XR-7 emblems that should be on the sail panels.
