    What would you be looking to buy next?

    I thought I wanted one of those until I drove one both on the street and on a track. I didn't like it at all. Chip

    Unexpected Avatar

    Gentlemen, This morning the GT truck and trailer driver for Sanderson Ford picked up my GT for it's final warranty adjustment. His name is Austin Day and while loading up my car he asked if I'd like to see a drawing he did on his IPad of my two GT's? Well of course! I think what he did is...

    New V8 in the works??

    Pete, When I bought my F-150 I drove the Ecoboost V-6 and the 5.0 V-8. I chose the 5.0 because of simplicity, sound, and feel. I've towed my boat and GT trailer all over hell and back and the 5.0 did a great job but for strictly towing the V-6 would have been better. 75% of my truck driving...

    looking for a picture

    Tim Cantwell painted the 10 spoke wheels a different way but I don't have a photo of it. I think it was on his yellow GT and he painted the wheel centers black. Send him a PM. Chip

    I think it looks killer just like that. I wouldn't change it. Chip

    What have you done with your new Ford GT?

    Ah! Got it. I never actually saw them before Rich refinished them and I thought he told me they were red. Now I need to get the calipers on my '06 GT finished in Speed Yellow as well so the cars match. Chip

    What have you done with your new Ford GT?

    Gentlemen, When I ordered my new GT I wanted gloss black brake calipers to match the ones on my 2006 GT. Surprisingly black was not one of the options early in 2017 (it's available now). How about yellow then? No, that's not available either. So I ordered red and that was fine UNTIL....I...

    A solution to valve cover bolt Corrosion......ARP replacements

    Gentlemen, When something like this pops up and I think back to when these cars were new or nearly so it's amazing how much aftermarket stuff was produced for 4038 cars. I miss having all those items available. These bolts were fantastic and mine still look great today. I'm pretty sure I...

    2020 performance difference

    Gentlemen, I've talked to Brooks (Drag Times) multiple times both on the phone and via text and even in private he never said anything negative about Ford or the GT during our conversations. As DBK stated above Brooks makes a living buying and testing supercars and his videos of heads up races...

    Bring a trailer?

    I have sold two vehicles and bought one using Bring a Trailer and I really like them. They are selective about the cars they take and the first time you list with them it's harder as they are vetting the seller as well. Chip

    Ford GT's Getting Flagged by CARB!

    Gentlemen, In AZ any car that has collector car insurance is exempt from having to go through emissions, even a brand new car. Saves a lot of hassle and has allowed me to mod my 1992 Porsche 964 without worry about the next inspection. I would imagine several other states allow similar...

    Ford GT's Getting Flagged by CARB!

    Gentlemen, I'm glad I was born in 1956 and got to live in the golden age of the sovereign individual. These big brother intrusions are maddening. I honestly don't know why so many people choose to stay in CA. Chip

    How low can you go?

    Gentlemen, My gauge was showing 1 mile to empty when I pulled into a station after dinner a few days ago. Showed 25 miles to empty when I left the garage. 19 miles to empty after I had driven 1 mile, and 10 miles to empty after an easy low speed 5 mile drive to the restaurant. After dinner a...
