Beer?

In contrast, if you were living/sleeping with a gorgeous model, most of us would ride her a fraction of the time in contrast to being in her company looking at her and admiring her beauty 16 hours a day. You could say minutes with a model is similar to looking at your GT.

Some math...

If you owned the GT for 5 years (24 hours a day) and have put 30000 miles on her with an average speed of 60 mph, then what is the percentage of actual time riding her vs. total time of owning her. I know there is quite a bit of engineers here on the forum. So.... for the first guy to post an answer gets me to buy him a beer.

Plugging those figures into my always-handy iPhone calculator I get about 1.1% driving time.
You are absolutely correct - Looking out into my garage, cruising a backroad or blasting a track I get 100% enjoyment. If the GT would fit through the door it would be in my living room right next to my wife's and my favorite motorcycles.

Exactly what I was thinking Ed... Lets see, at 11k @ roughly 200mph average... :rofl

I think for all of us - Whatever the numbers are, they are well worth it!:thumbsup

CanadaGT Congrats!!!! Way to go Canada!!!
I am just under 13,000 miles up to yesterday having put over 350 miles yesterday alone getting to the track, ON the track (a full tank and a half used on the track), then to a car show and then back home.
Who says these go down in value as the miles go up???!!!!(unlike the red F cars). Ford GTs are like wine, they get better with age/miles!!!

No, I can't make it this year. I'll be wrapped up in a pre-deployment exercise.

In the last 2 years how many miles have you put on your other FGT on the lift?

I reckon less than EP did on his car.

Ok Clinton you got me on that. I have 450 some odd miles on the Red car. It seems to always be apart for R&D and various projects.. :biggrin For the record how many miles did EP actually put on his car ?? I guess they were equally erased by backing up back into his garage .....:lol

I ran my car on the lift in reverse, the odometer still counts forward. Just an electronic pulse sensor; it doesn't care which direction it is turning.
