    New Ford GT unveiling

    In fact, in the budget-conscious world I pretend to live in, you can get an entire (used) supercar for $250K!

    New Ford GT unveiling

    $250,000 paint delete option. I'm sure Porsche is wondering why they didn't think of that first!

    Serious question for guys who actually drive these cars a lot

    Great post, thanks! So, what are the six questions? I can maybe guess the first three: What is it? How fast does it go? How much did it cost?

    Serious question for guys who actually drive these cars a lot

    Well........ I actually have agreed to buy one- pending a quick once-over by Mr. Brooks and I this week. I'll have to change my avatar!

    Serious question for guys who actually drive these cars a lot

    Well, based on the mileage of most GTs that are listed for sale, I'd say your 16K miles IS a lot, although some guys certainly have a lot more. When I had my new '06 blue-no-stripes, we were in an old Tudor house with an inaccessible 2-car tandem garage under the house, so my GT was 15 minutes...

    Serious question for guys who actually drive these cars a lot

    So, for the few guys here who actually put a lot of miles on your cars............... How do you do that? Serious question. With the inconvenient doors, zero luggage space, and extreme width of the car, so you have any tips? I suspect the first two tips are: #1 It's just a car #2 Don't be a...

    Detailed charts: Percentage and number of each color and stripe configuration

    I was surprised by that, too. And so................ Here's another graph (hold your applause). This shows percentages by year, plus the totals. .

    Getting ready order lifts: width recommendations?

    I'm also looking at these- to cram another car into my micro-size (20x28) 3-car garage. Here's the brochure with dimensions on their different HD9 models https://www.bendpak.com/HD-9-Four-Post-Lift-5175861-BendPak.pdf But I also found this new "GrandPrix" model from them that's different-...

    Detailed charts: Percentage and number of each color and stripe configuration

    To me, the second chart is the most meaningful. I don't think there's much difference between a stripe delete and a side stripe only car. BTW, I don't see much evidence that rarity affects value. For example, although there are fewer no-stripe cars, there seem to be proportionately fewer buyers...

    Detailed charts: Percentage and number of each color and stripe configuration

    The percentages help, but to really visualize the color distribution, imagine you were at a big car show (or auction lol) with 24 GT's that represented the total production. There would be 7 red 4 white 3 tungsten 3 black 3 blue 2 Heritage 1 yellow 1 silver

    Detailed charts: Percentage and number of each color and stripe configuration

    I clearly had too much time on my hands yesterday. Using the data from the book Ford GT, the complete owner's experience (if you don't have it, order it today- link below), I put the colors in Excel and broke them down a few different ways...

    Looking to buy GT 40 replica

    The Factory Five GTM cars certainly aren't literal GT40 replicas, but pretty exotic looking and very good bang for the buck, especially used ones. https://www.ebay.com/itm/2017-Replica-Kit-Makes-FACTORY-FIVE-GTM-SUPER-CAR/223883273165

    In Ohio at least, the trade-in sales tax credit only works when you purchase a new car.
