    Serious Damaged GT on IAAI asking 165K

    seems that that is the main problem with the 05-06 GTs impossibility of easily sourcing parts. FOOLISHLY when I purchased mine from the dealer in south western Virginia, It was about the same price as Porsche Turbo, so I thought here is a good driver I can have fun with and keep for awhile and...

    The 2005/2006 Ford GT Takata Airbag Recall Program

    changing the battery

    I was thinking about plugging in the 9v that we use for our porsches to maintain some voltage before changing, rather than the Ford battery maintainer I had been using to keep the battery up. Is that good?

    changing the battery

    well after 16 years my optima 25 finally failed. I looked through the threads but did not see anything about maintaining the control unit memory while replacing. Do I need to plug a battery into the cigar lighter to maintain while changing?

    Serious question for guys who actually drive these cars a lot

    I originally bought mine to drive, and ran up 10 thousand miles in no time. What happened, besides the doors, lack of luggage space, impossibility to park, lack of vision/not being able to see the four corners, wideness/ size of the car, is that the replacement parts evaporated and the cars...
