    Who is attending the Velocity Invitational event at Laguna Seca in Monterey CA Nov 13-14? I will be there along with Demo Man (he's racing) & 07XL0027. Ford sent an email last month to many of us. Many cool cars & drivers will be there (like Ford GT Le Mans team). Ed...

    Track Insurance

    I did a search on the forum but couldn't find my answer. I have checked with Hagerty, RLI, Open-Track, Xinsurance & Chizmark Larson. They all offer single day stated value coverage for open track events but limit it to $400K max (Open-Track was the exception with $500K). Does anyone know of a...

    300 mph club

    Why all the fuss about a modified Bugatti Chiron going 304 mph? To do it they had special made tires & used the 12 mile long (5.4 mi long straightaway) Ehra-Lessien track in Germany. Our own Mark used a standing mile to get his '05-06 GT over 300 mph on Hoosiers that you & I can buy. Ed...

    In the March 2019 issue of Car & Driver magazine, Mark Martin reveals his NGT will be delivered this spring. Even though he doesn't want to drive in in Montana, my guess is it will be registered there. LOL! Ed

    Ti accessories

    The plastic valve stem caps that come on the NGT are not acceptable. However, Ti caps are cool. I shortened them 6mm though. Ed

    Only NGT Bolt On Part Available from FMC

    Ok. There had to be at least one of us to pull the trigger on this part. Yes, it's not necessary. Yes, it's expensive. Yes, if my wife Heidi knew she would be mad. Yes, I don't listen to sound advice. The bolt on Raj pedal oozes trickness & if you are a CF & Ti lover then enjoy my photos but...

    Official parts for the NGT

    During my delivery I was told of a post-sale option of a bolt on CF dead pedal. The attachment points are very visible (at least on my '19). I'm assuming it is very expensive. I bet Petunia could make them out of aluminum for us. It isn't necessary but, hey, we had the bolt on cup holders for...

    50 years between cars but still the same DNA

    My friend was at the Peterson a few days ago & took this photo. Lots of visual similarities but the DNA under the skin is unmistakable - all Ford & all to win LM but we have a few of these street legal versions! Ed

    2018 Chicago Auto Show

    There were a lot of cool cars at the recent Chicago Auto Show but the one that stole the show was the FGT comp model. Well, at least in my opinion. So many people though. Lucky I came right when it opened that day! Ed

    My first You Tube video: 2017 Ford GT

    I made the video on my iPhone using Amy MacDonald's song 4th of July. It's perfect for America's supercar. Ford really is number one! Ed PS Amy is getting a new GT. I hope you like my video. Thanks to Ford & Amy!
