Because of other, more pressing obligations the Editor has not had much time to post all the information gathered over the last decade or two on GTOs and GTO Replicas. Hopefully that situation will change in the near future. Until then, the guys at HybridZ have been exchanging a lot of information on the Z-based GTO Replicas (and other kits that use the Z platform as a donor). Surf on over to

Hybrid Z Body Kit Forum

or enter through the main page (useful for V8 conversion info, brake conversions, and suspension tweaks) at

If you like the Velo Rossa concept of a Spyder version of the 250 GTO, you will LOVE Mark Gerisch's custom creation on a real Ferrari chassis with real Ferrari drivetrain. It is certainly HUGELY more expensive than the Velo Rossa, but it is beautiful!

Unfortunately, the website appears to be defunct and I've removed the hot link.

Clay Atchison has a nice, new site devoted primarily to the 914-based, Dino Replicas built by Barry Goldstein. Barry was an early player in the 250 GTO replica biz. Clay's site includes some valuable history and some great archived magazine articles.

Mike Renucci builds an AWESOME 250 GT California Spyder (Ferris Bueller's Day Off). It is in a class by itself, using a sophisticated tube frame, and having very nicely detailed mechanical components:

Curt and Judy Scott's ever present and omniscient Kit Car website contains a lot of really good general information about kit cars and the kit car industry. Great source of consumer information: was kind enough to give us a link on their website. Here is the link to theirs:
