    Exhaust Part Identification

    The weather has finally improved in Texas, and after fixing a bunch of broken pipes had some time to spend with the car. In some ways, I'm still trying to figure out what I bought and I saw something I don't recall seeing before. So there is this round cylinder that says Ford Racing on it that...

    Water Leak Through Windshield

    In heavy rains, my car starts dripping through the top of the windshield, 6-8 drops a minute on the passenger side. I was talking to a mechanic about fixing this and he was reluctant about doing it because he thought if he needed to pull the windshield to re-weatherstrip it that the front end...

    Comparing Cars With Different Number of Miles

    Good Morning, Assuming similar condition (relative to miles), what kind of cost per mile would you recommend in comparing two cars (say a 5k car and a 15k car)? In the Lamborghini / Ferrari world for example, the rule of thumb runs from $1/mile difference for reasonably rare cars (Countach...

    In the Market for a Ford GT Again

    So For Those Who Have Bought GTs Recently

    I would like to know (particularly on the low end of the market) how are you finding the condition of the cars as they approach 15 years old. Are the 15k+ mile cars in good shape generally and well serviced? I'm sure a PPI is needed for any car in the low end, wonder how easy it is to find a...

    Yellow GT With a Whipple Installed

    Not many yellow cars out there, but there has been one hanging out on ebay for the past several weeks. It already has a Whipple. How much "credit" in dollars would you give a car with it already installed?

    Maintenance & Repair/Replacement Costs?

    Searched, did not see much information. Now that the car is 6-7 years old and only 50% still have delivery miles:lol, I'd like to see some data on maintenance and repair costs for some common items. As you know, I've been cross-shopping other exotics, and the sheer number of $10k+ service...

    Anybody Experiment With Gated Shifters?

    Anyway, drove a car with a gated shifter for the first time recently ('08 Gallardo). Didn't care for the car (was gutless at 5,000 rpm, like the normal f430), but loved the clack-clack sound and feel of the shifter. And it looked the business, shiny billet instead of the rubber (?) sheaths on...

    Price/Collectibilty of Low Mile Cars Vs Drivers & Multi-car Ownership

    As you may know, I'm trying to learn about these fine cars as I approach a purchasing decision. In alot of ways, this car is unique. Looking at the market, there are a great number of cars available with delivery miles or miles below 1,000. And a large group with around 2,000 miles. So, I...

    So What Other Cars Did You Consider?

    I drove 3 cars back-to-back on Saturday....Started with an LP-640 Murcielago Roadster, top off, sunny Houston day. Car was amazing. Its a hammer, no matter what tool you need....endless power is its only response. Then drove the Mac Davis blue stripeless GT. Maybe it was the color (for...

    Demographics of GT Owners

    I'm curious since one video review I saw referred to the GT as the "working man's supercar" how the demographics differ from other exotics. I tend to feel out of place with the serious Ferrari types:bored, and the Lamborghini guys are fun and a little crazy:willy So as a regular guy with a...

    PPI in Houston

    There may be a local car coming up for sale. Like most exotics, I'm sure an independent inspection is recommended. Who in Houston will do these?
