    Team Ford GT shirt, size XL

    I have a Team Ford GT blue and orange shirt I purchased here on the Forum a few years back. Its been worn once and laundered. Hung in the closet since. Since they do not come up for sale very often, figured someone would want it. I was obviously asking more than the current market will bear...

    Jack stands with pucks?

    I bought the lifting pucks that fit the holes on the bottom of the GT. Trouble I have with them is that they are flat and smooth and the jack stands have a Y shape to them and do not engage the puck well at all. It would be far too easy for the puck to slide off the jack stand. Looking for...
