Guys,

Thanks so much for the quick responses. Believe it or not, after looking in every house, every key locker, every frickin' where... I call the owner's assistant and tell her to round up the title for the car as he is going to have to go to a Ford dealer, prove ownership, provide the vin#, and get a key made. She digs around her desk for the title, and finds not one, but two spare sets of Ford GT keys.:rolleyes:bang:party

So, car is open, new battery is in, started right up, warmed it for a bit and drove it a little. What a great car these things are. What awful rear visibility:eek That's about the only downside though, aside from actually installing the battery...

What the heck is up with that? I have never had such trouble installing a factory correct battery in a car in my life. At least it's done. All the way up to 107 miles on that car now. Wearing right out I tell ya!!

Thanks again everyone.

The whiskey option is probably all you're going to get today. You've probably figured this out by now. I'm having some right now :) Fedex overnight is probably your best choice, provided you have a spare key where you can find it (note to self, get spare key from CO to NV).

I've got those stickers also on a couple of my cars Ralphie. They get a lot of laughs. I thought you had a red car? LOL

To paraphrase a line from Inspector Clouseau...... "That is not his car."

Well, it was $20 for Woodridge Ford to cut a wallet key. Back in action. Note to self to bring extra set of keys back to C-town from the lake!

Please don't do that, I've seen expensive cars go diving before, they're never the same afterwards!!!!

Tomcat,

Great picture. Great cars.

Good incentive for me to get my '72 back into top shape. GT is fine. I need to do a similar photo some day.
