    To wrap, or not to wrap?

    Like many who have been granted the privilege of ordering a new Ford GT, I still haven't decided on a color. I would like a unique color all my own, but also know that that option comes with a hefty price tag. Any color I choose will require quite a bit of clear bra film work to protect all that...

    Superformance GT40 MkII Opinions

    Just throwing it out there for opinion. I've always relished the idea of having an early GT40 in my collection, but not willing to pay for an original (if one could even be had). I am thinking about building a Superformance MkII, paint it red, put a real 427 engine it it, right hand drive, and...

    Incremental costs to MSRP

    I put together a spreadsheet to figure out what options I may be interested in adding to my new GT, and the total cost given various option selections. I have to account for sales tax for the jurisdiction in which I will register the car, as well as the gas guzzler tax and a line item for...

    New Ford GT Merchandise

    I was thinking this morning that it would be great if there was a good central source for ordering merchandise items related to new GT logo, images, etc. like shirts, hats, coffee mugs, etc. These would be great to have for all who submitted an application, whether they were selected or not. If...

    Kudos to Ford for their "Process"

    I know that there will be some sour grapes among those who were not selected in the initial round of builds for the new FGT. And for those loyal customers and fans who really wanted a new FGT, I hope that some day you will have your opportunity to buy one some day. Receiving my notification...

    What will Ford Race at LeMans?

    OK, we saw the new GT350R (I for one have to have one, and OH, I will also take another Raptor too!) I for one, still don't know whether Ford will race in the GT class using the GT350R or the new GT. I would be willing to bet that the GT350R will be Ford's weapon of choice at LeMan. Anyone...

    First Production Availability

    Just some speculation, and a "reality-check" for all of us who really desire to own the "NEW" GT next year. Mark asked Bill, "Should we build it?" Bill said "YES". Mark replied, "How about next year?" Bill said......"YES". Does that mean we ALL can get one next year, probably not. I for one am...
