    Stradman buys a 2005 GT in Hawaii

    Cool videos. You gotta give the guy credit. Looks like his car collection, age appearance and energy level have gone up exponentially in the last 4 years. What is he taking? I would have fired him too. 5 minutes with him in a job environment and I would go nuts.

    My new Ford

    Perhaps better term for winter: HOT!! Looks like it will be a real blast. Have fun. Car sales are spiking. You have too much time on your hands. Can you fit a plow on it and come down and do my driveway?

    Cyber Monday Sale - BBS FI-R Wheels

    Would these fit an '06? If not directly, what issues would you have to address/overcome?

    My new ride

    Way to go Ron! You are really building a stable of exclusives. Enjoy quickly, before winter sets in. You'll have to give me a ride and some sound bytes in the Spring.

    Harry's Garage drives a 2005

    Never heard the Volvo trip story. The GT was apparently the only good thing to come from the Ford, Jaguar, L-R, Volvo fiasco. Still don't know how they managed to screw that up so badly.

    Ford GT Performance video

    Cool video! Pretty impressive statistics! Great success and PR "halo" for Ford. Maybe they'll do it again for 60th anniversary?

    Too many motor homes. Not enough pull-over passing areas. Too many inconsiderate drivers. Ed's description of "good" might be a bit optimistic, but there is no other drive like it. Definitely worth the aggravation. If someone can recommend a challenging canyon road, that would be a major plus.

    Ordered a C8 tonight

    Figured you would be one of the first! Congratulations and good luck. When are they saying you will get it? "Market adjustment"?

    GT Owners (2nd gen): Would you invest in Mk2 mods (engine upgrade/roof scoop/others) if Ford offered these?

    While you're at it, ask about any possible enhancements for the '21 and '22 models. Those with allocations for those years will be looking at cars that are 5-6 years old, with technology older than that. For the $ they will no doubt be charging by then, some sort of improvements should be...

    Disable Motion Sensor for NFGT in Transit?

    See post on Towing. "DO NOT put straps through any ( standard or CF ) wheel.) Tangentially related? First Rally I went to, (Vegas) which was first experience with car carrier, left my EZPass on the windshield. Had a hell of a cross-country toll bill when I got back home. Took a long time, but...
