    Storming Laguna Seca in the new Ford GT Mark II, Billy Johnson Driving

    Hey guys, I was fortunate enough to get a ride in the new Ford GT Mark II last Sunday during Monterey Car Week. Billy Johnson was piloting, and it was a thrill to not only ride in this unrestrained track weapon but to do it with Billy at the wheel. He and I first met during the new Ford GT...

    Am I the only one that sees a New Ford GT here? Was highly suspicious when I saw it, then read the release and learned that “development kicked off in 2015...” Hmm, what else kicked off in (early, like January) 2015... Nice to see one F inspiring another F... :LOL: Full Press release...

    Carbon Series K043

    I toured the Multimatic facility back on December 14th, and like many others I was enthralled with the quality of the production facility, the breadth of NFGTs I saw in various stages of production and the hospitality of the Multimatic crew. I even got to have holiday lunch with the entire...

    2005 Ford GT #1456 sold (to Doug DeMuro), 2019 Ford GT Due in January

    As I mentioned in the marketplace section, I sold my 2005 Ford GT yesterday. If you watch YouTube at all you have probably heard of Doug DeMuro.

    My 2005 Ford GT is leaving...but some cool parts remain

    Well Gentlefolk, this is both a sad and happy day for me. Sad because my 13-year (plus 2-weeks, but who's counting...) relationship with my 2005 Ford GT, VIN#1456, is coming to an end tomorrow. I've found a buyer, a very cool/high-profile buyer, who I know will take good care of her and...

    I've Been Demonized! And I LOVE IT!

    So, for the first time in over 12 years (or, since I bought my Ford GT on August 23rd, 2005) I pulled the trigger and bought another brand new car (note: I did lease my first car ever last spring, but it was a 2017 Fiat 500e offered at $49 a month, and I give it back after 36 months, so it...

    I was fortunate enough to drive the 2016 McLaren 675LT a couple weeks ago, and my story went live Monday on Forbes. Here's the link: http://www.forbes.com/sites/kbrauer/2015/12/14/2016-mclaren-675lt-2900-pounds-660-horsepower-0-60-in-2-9-seconds/ While driving the 675LT it occurred to me that...
