    New Ford GC

My better half purchased a vacation/investment home that came with a golf cart that I discovered had Ford badges on it. She was...

    05/06 GT Cup Holder

    I have seen some really nice cup holders for the GT before but not much lately. Decided to try a cup holder I had seen before from "Ultimate Cupholder". Was skeptical it would work but bent the installation tap 18 0 degrees back and lined with Velcro. Installed on passenger side footwell storage...

    New Garage Wall Art

    Had seen one of our members post a really nice color sketch of a red 05/06 GT many years ago. Recently was at Costco and was looking at their metal print services. Sent a high resolution jpeg file in and had it printed on a 24"x36". Cost was $12o plus tax. Turned out really good compared to the...

    New Heritage in the Wild

    Was at local Cars & Cigars show and spotted a new Heritage in the wild. Can you spot the modification that I bet many with this car will perform. Really like the seat stitching color match to the exterior color.

    Front Splitter Curb Clearance 05/06 GT vs. New GT

    I am curious to know the curb clearance of the new vs. 05/06 GT. Obviously this would be measured with New GT front hydraulic lift engaged. The 05/06 GT curb clearance at the front splitter with Bridgestone's at 31 psig is around 5 inches at lowest point and 5.25 inches at highest point.

    Scottsdale C&C Today

    This event keeps getting larger with over 900 parking spaces. Little warm today but attendance was great with two 2017 GTs and two 2005 GTs. Just a sea of people and cars. We said goodbye to some of our forum members today from the North and East who will be returning home soon.
