Gentlemen,

I just merged the third thread put up about this film. And I'm sure we are all sick of getting 20+ notes a day from well meaning friends who want to make sure we've seen this trailer. I think it's safe to assume that everyone who has ever sat in a Ford has seen this multiple times. This film is wildly inaccurate but will still probably be fun to watch. But not as much fun as watching the real thing play out just over a week from now. Cheers.

Chip

I want to see it, but not totally thrilled by the trailer.
1. IACOCCA already knew Shelby, and did not need a lecture, the Daytona's already had kicked some Ferrari A$$ in 64.
2. Miles punching Shelby...oh really.
3. The Deuce crying like baby, absurd!
4. Miles had proof by his own doing FoMoCo did not need 200 to 300 years.
If this is supposed to be funny, I'm not laughing.
Maybe after seeing it makes sense.

It’s called creative license to heighten the storyline to folks who don’t know anything about the story, which is 99 percent of the population. Doesn’t mean it’s right though.

I think there will be a keen new interest from all kind of non car folks in our 12 year old cars after this movie premieres.
Might even bump up values

French flick “A Man and a Woman.” Impress your wife with your sensitive side and ask her to watch a French romance film. Act surprised when you see the car scenes.

Happy to support the effort. It would be pretty cool. Just let me know how you think we could approach it.

Will definitely see this film.
What I also hope is that someone will not wait 50 years to make a film of our more current history with the NGT program. The fact that Ford was able to develop the Gen II car, develop the racing program, execute the program and win the LeMans again, exactly 50 years after their 1966 rout (1st, 2nd and 3rd places) is truly amazing! To me, that would be an excellent story to tell...

I agree. The story keeps getting better and better.

Hey Guys, this is BIG!!!!!! Every one I talk to about the movie is excited. A young boy came up to me yesterday at a car show and was telling me how he and his friends are just waiting for the movie to come out. See, there is a new young generation that is carrying on the heritage and tradition on what we all ready know and love. Hang on boys, the prices and excitement on our pieces of American history are about to skyrocket! These new young Hombre's are playing with are cars on video games and have posters/ pictures on their walls. What a great time to have, drive and Love a GT!
