    Stress cracks in 27K mile, 0 Stories 05 GT

    Looks like stress cracking of the panel at the compound curve when you get lateral movement. The "arch" is flexing. If it was a flat panel ...it would have flexed but because of the wrap-around it cracks. Seen this on older corvettes that are raced. My 2 cents worth

Manifold heat shield bolts have been found on the pan, trans oil vapors, checking the AC system, rubber heat shield foil starts to cook...

    Inane Ramblings: The Ford GT and Ferrari Lust

    I was always afraid that I was going to break something on the Ferraris or Lambos. This would mean shop time at the best time of the year. I now have a car who's weakest link is between the tires and the road. It's a keeper!

    Ford GT Media Videos

    In late 2005, Ford made 2 videos - one on the complexities of how the car was painted and the other on how the car was built. They were excellent videos of abou:confusedt 5 min each. I have contacted Ford but to no avail. Any one know where I can track them down?
