John Loane, email

HELLO SM, I am 70 years old and have been reading your magazine since day one.

Many years ago you printed pics of my yellow XB and XY GT replicas in Readers’ Rockets. I think my sons pinched my mag; would you have a copy for me? One son, Jason Loane, owns the KULPRIT XD Falcon; my other son Guy Loane is building up a ’38 Hudson Terraplane coupe.

My issue is about clutches; I have a yellow BA GT, which has a fairly light clutch, but what aftermarket clutches are available that I could replace it with? Maybe you could you do an article on clutches some time? Thank you.

HEY John, we’ll have a dig for the mag with your cars in it; in the meantime, here’s a shot of Jason’s XD. Rob Herrod recommends an organic-disc unit from for your GT – Telf.
