jim, as i am getting more serious about adding a ford gt to my garage, i began to look at the era car and even the cav cars that are being sold in white plains as an alternate choice. the replicas seem quite good and may be more fun to own and track. i would love to have your input. please resond to my personal e-mail if you prefer. thanks jim. best, pcb p.s. i would love to know the thoughts of others that have some knowledge of the era, cav, or gtd cars.
