    Battery availability and cost

    Just replaced my 1st sears replacement with a new optima red top. Got 20% off oreilly, $170 something. Instead of the voltmeter running far left to the red zone on start, barely moves 1/4 to the left. Had one or two meter failures on start last couple of weeks, fixed with restart.

    What is the best time to run the Pacific Coast Highway? I’m looking to go, with whoever wants to join, in the new or old GT or any vehicle. Info on side trips and canyon roads would be greatly appreciated. Anyone else interested? Wine country stops probably required. I recall that Sonoma was...

    What have you done with your new Ford GT?

    A 4th of July car show in Flagstaff, AZ. Didn’t win best sport car, exotic, specialty, or people’s choice. When I was invited I said for display only, so the car did not have a number. Otherwise it’s just not fair (yeah I got those plaques last time).

    So For Those Who Have Bought GTs Recently

    I was delighted to hear that my 105k mile car ran like other owners 10k cars. These cars are, or can be, rock solid. I’ve done recommended maintenance. Am hoping to see similar solid car with the new one.

    Secondary market.

    I guess mine is legally now available for sale. But since it’s the least valuable in the world with the highest mileage, and my dog has thrown up in it, not interested.

    What have you done with your new Ford GT?

    I didn’t realize. The new one (way back in this picture) was so much smaller than the old one (front of the picture).

    Minimum Garage Ceiling Height for a lift

    14 foot floor to ceiling. Tight but fits tall vehicles. The side door lift is awesome, quiet, fast, and so much more clearance.
