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.

Good question! The owner of the GTE is a member here and reads each post but has made a vow never to engage. Kim? Poke-poke?

Kim, I know it takes you half an hour to type out a few sentences, but before it took you an hour to do the same. You've cut your typing time in half. lol
I agree with you though Kim... you're time is much better spent working on your cars rather than typing on a keyboard.
Thanks, Scott Ferguson
