    The Price of XPEL

    15K is way out of line. 8-10K tops. Look for another shop. We have some of the best in the business here in Scottsdale who will wrap an '06 GT for 8K. Chip

    Latest battery recommendations

    Gentlemen, I ordered a new genuine Ford GT Optima battery from Sanderson Ford just 6 months ago. Ford GT logo on the top. Why not go with the original since it's available right now. Pretty cool I thought. Chip

    Liquid Victory

    Gentlemen, Dave calls this the Liquid Victory Edition but I don't. Before the first new GT's were produced DBK was pitching for a 100% bare carbon GT even if it had several visible flaws. "Just clear it and deliver it to me!" And please just make ONE! Multimatic wasn't having it for a few...

    2017+ Ford GT allocations and configurations

    Gentlemen, That was a nice write up. They referred to my GT’s as Triple Yellow and they are all painted in 2006 GT Speed Yellow. My 2017 GT and the Mk II are both the only examples painted Speed Yellow. There are 30-34 new GT’s painted Triple Yellow. Cheers. Chip

    Chip, Biff, and a Husky

    What came up Tony? There was no attachment. But my aerobatic planes were equipped with special inverted oil, fuel, and prop controller systems that would maintain oil pressure 95% of the time even when the plane was upside down for an extended period. Straight vertical up oil pressure would...

    Chip, Biff, and a Husky

    Dakota, Yes, an air cooled, 360 c.i., fuel injected, 200 HP, flat opposed 4 cylinder Lycoming. The constant speed propeller is bolted directly to the front of the crankshaft so it spins at the same RPM as the engine. Engine speed is limited to 2700 RPM to keep the propeller tips from going...

    Chip, Biff, and a Husky

    Gentlemen, A fine morning flying with Tomcat and nice to finally meet him face to face after all these years. The new Husky is 4 months old now and I’ve put 39 hours on it so far. It is painted Speed Yellow and Vivid Black to match the GT’s. It will take off & land in 300 feet and top speed...

    Sebring Heritage Mk II

    Gentlemen, The 1967 12 hours of Sebring winning GT Mk IV. 55 years ago the driving suits and the cars were advertisement free which looks odd today. This was the only major race win by a yellow Ford GT. Bruce Mclaren is only 29 years old here. 3 years later he would die in a crash at Goodwood...

    Sebring Heritage Mk II

    Gentlemen, Multimatic has now completed the limited run of 45 Mk II GT's. In addition to standard colors and ECP they cooked up a dozen or so Heritage options based on notable 1960's liveries viewable on the private Mk II website, but there was one that could not be seen by anyone but me. The...

    The Final Countdown

    Gentlemen, I don't like it when cool things I've enjoyed come to an end. Like my 4 years in college, the 4 years of the GT IMSA and WEC teams were a blast. Trips to Multimatic, the races, the rallies and the whole new GT program really were "something utterly insane". The sound and feel of...
