    Scam Alert

    I thought it would be good to share this story with the Ford GT Community of Friends. My friend, Gus Cho from Chicago, IL sent me an e-mail to let me know that he was recently scammed by a couple of deadbeats who troll the exotic car forums looking for "marks" or "rubes" that they can scam. Gus...

    I am officially INSANE.

    We'll the only REAL way to answer my previously posted question, "Is the ACR worth it?" was to go out and buy one to find out for myself. I ended up taking Bony's advise..."A bird in the hand is worth..." rather than waiting for a 2009. I cut the deal at 2:30 on Friday, hooked up the trailer...

    Is the ACR worth it?

    I just got my 2008 Viper SRT10 Convertible and I am so impressed with the new engineering, I have been absolutely obsessed with the thought of adding yet a third Viper to the collection.

    Second Viper Added to the garage this week.

    Well, I sold my Shelby Cobra to one of our fellow forum members, and the money was burning a hole my pocket. I wanted to replace the Cobra with something modern and equally fun, in a roadster configuration. I got a really killer deal on a 2008 Viper. I really wanted to get the new motor and...

    Blues Brothers

    Since posting pics of "Ole Yeller", I thought some of the Forum members would like to see pics of the "Blues Brothers". This morning I needed to shuffle cars in the warehouse and pulled both out together. With the 60 degree weather today and no rain, I decided it would be a nice day to take a...

    New wheels, lowered stance, 14 stitches, two broken fingers, Priceless

    I just installed Alex's lowering kit and my new 20"/19" CCW wheels and it looks great. However, while rolling it off the boards under my two post list, I caught my hand between the spokes and the brake caliper resulting in a trip to the E.R. today. Fortunately, my son Garrett was helping. I got...

    Strange, Heat-Related Electrical Gremlins

    Four of us drove our GT's from the Rally on Sunday morning to Las Vegas. We came through 114 degree temps during the trip. Upon arrival, my Heritage Livery car showed some strange signs, likely heat-related. First, my rear window defrost light came on on the dash indicating the heat was on, when...
