    Tires are available

    I agree if they have been mounted the whole time and exposed to UV radiation. Stored indoors unmounnted in a quiet cool environment will extend the life quite awhile past the normal expected life. Just kidding about the quiet part, but that is how I would want to be stored.

    Me too....

    Tires are available

    With due respect, not true.....even discussed this with Bill, and previously with tire rack. Also stored Diablo tires like this for 5 years successfully.

    Tires are available

    This is an interesting but strange move by Bridgestone. In all fairness, how well known is Radial compared to Tire Rack, Walmart, Amazon. If Bill is worried about sitting on inventory, maybe he makes side deals with them. I'm thinking about buying a spare set (I bought rears like a month ago)...

    FORD GT 2005 CERTIFICATE

    My previous owner had bought a set, when the two owners prior did not....well worth having.

    First GT

    Can we assume there was a massive price difference? I don't think I would ever want to re-buy a model I had experienced. What did you own in between and what brought you back?

    06 GT pops out of 3rdgear under accelerating?

    They really don’t have much storage room from what I remember. I have one sitting around.....but it is part of a nearly complete CF interior, so if it is worth 5 figures to get some storage, come at me.....LOL

    06 GT pops out of 3rdgear under accelerating?

    FWIW, I had a Corvette with the same symptoms (except it was 2nd gear)....and yep, it was a bad syncro.

    Jason Cammisa Ford GT Revelations

    Have never been a fan of his.....always tries too hard to be funny, and he isn't. He also messes up on alot on facts which should be easy to verify. The car really sounded good though and it was interesting to see the prototypes. FWIW, Ford sold Panteras for 5 years and moved 5,500...

    Camaro? Fun cars, had a 1997 Z28 once.

    Tires!!

    Bill at Radial just received 26 rears with 4721 date codes. This batch is already sold but it underscores that the demise of these Bridgestone tires may be premature. As part of this transaction I needed to cancel a back order with tire rack, who still doesn’t know when they will get a batch in.

    Ford should be kicking its own ass over lack of Bronco availability

    My Escape was T-boned a couple of months ago. Geico is going to fix it because of the used car market, but with structural damage it has I probably won't keep it. Sat down with a Ford salesman where it is being fixed, and he has a wait list on 3 pages of a legal pad and most will not get cars...

    It's official, 2005 FGT 1343 is mine

    Seeing his taste in women (he posted pics all the time), I hope you used a very long pole to fish those things out. Shame he left all the forums though...

    Tires!!

    OK, that little stash in Reno is gone. I put in a future order with Sonny, he is thinking 2-3 months out.
