So yes, made a special deviation from our intended destination (auction week) to go see this car. Totally worth it.

So Stormy, have you seen the car yet? What are your thoughts now that you've seen it in person?

It is spectacular!!!. Not a bad angle on the car. I had a really nice surprize as soon as I walked into the Cobo Center I ran into Andy (AJB ) ! I'm having dinner now I'm posting from my phone. Going back to the show for some more photos

I took a 1,200 mile detour to see the car today. Yes-totally worth it. The car is stunning and was mobbed by people 4-5 deep all day.

Much wilder than pictures represent. Agree?

Very much so. I'm really floored by the car. Being a life-long Ford guy, I'm really proud of Ford for what they have done with this car. It is obviously the product of some very passionate enthusiasts.

Yeah but your trip isn't nearly as long as Brian's! :lol

So far Specracer from Mass, DoctorV8 from Houston, Matt from Florida, Brian from Florida...lots of people making one day trips to come see this thing.

I was just "emailing" with a friend of mine, a fellow "enthusiast", that is not a GT (or NSX) owner, but an "enthusiast" of both cars. He's driven both of my cars, and is a big fan of both. He's got a big "position" at a major company (not going to name it), and just emailed the following to me, when I asked him (after learning that he was at the Detroit show), what he thought of the new GT and NSX:


I did like the new GT although it's BIG in proportions, it's quite a piece of work. Had the chance to spend about 45min one on one with Mark Fields and the car will likely cost in the neighborhood of $400k and be very limited. Not done yet with the motor but will be over 600HP out of the V6 which is impressive but it's a V6.

The NSX is cool and the tech is modern for sure. WIll be interesting to see it tested and on the road. Not as exciting as yours IMO...

~$400K vs ~$110K? The GT had better be better. That's Aventador money.

I've never been to the Detroit Auto Show so I'm really looking forward to it. But I would probably never make the long journey unless it was for something special like the new GT!!

Could take 45 min to get there, depending on traffic,,,,, just the crowds that worry me, might not even be able to get close enough to see it...

You guys are lucky, get a group together if possible and reach out to Mr. Ford or the other guy :biggrin, and propose they change the name, since it looks nothing lke the '60s or current car :willy
