    Ford GT: Old vs. New

    The new GT was at the office today in the design center and I couldn't pass up the opportunity to photograph my '05 GT with the New GT. It's really amazing to see the silhouettes in person. Hopefully, the iphone did them justice showing the similarities and differences. Enjoy!!

    GT at the Lamborghini Newport Beach Car show.....

    I took the GT out to the Lamborghini Newport Beach car show this past weekend. The GT was the only domestic Supercar there. In a sea of Lambos, McClarens, and Ferrari's, the GT all but stole the show with the exception of a newly delivered P1. That car is utterly ridiculous!! I couldn't...
