Really thinking its time to unload the Ford GT and why. 6000 miles. Never in rain. Never outside. Never uncovered.
Airbag replaced (emblem--- under warrenty) Now in the same condition. Cam cover emblems replaced under warrenty. Now in same condition. Standard wheel hubcaps replaced under warrenty (rust) . Now in same condition and ordered at my expense. Cam covers themselves now have powder coat (paint ?) flaking. Hood paint bubbles starting . BTW, Im in Tampa not Cleveland, not clearwater beach . Audi V10 R8 is looking good . German quality is becoming attractive ...but wait ... even freaking Fiats didn't these sorts Vega level qc issues.

It would be really, really, really awesome if you finally actually sold your car. Seriously, you've been bitching about how you don't like it, it's not very impressive, and it's a piece of junk on this website since 2005. You just now decided it's time to sell? Please, for the love of God, actually sell it and finally, mercifully, (and I hope I'm not being rude saying this) shut the **** up. I went back to snag a bunch of your "I hate my GT, this thing sucks, there's like 100 cars I'd rather have" posts, but unfortunately Bony had deleted a bunch of them. I wish those gems about how you were going to get rid of your crappy GT to get a much better Lamborghini were still around for all to enjoy. We get it. You don't like the car, you've never liked the car, the car is not impressive to drive, it's got shoddy build quality, it has no personality (ironic). Doesn't that kind of make you an idiot for still owning it over 5 years from the commencement of Operation Enduring Bitching? It's turned into a quagmire. Get out! Get out!

p.s, I'll give you $100k cash for that hunk of junk tomorrow. I'll give you $110k for the car and a signed agreement that you vacate the internet. :rolleyes


If you don't like Tungsten make me an offer on my 2006 ALL YELLOW NO STRIPES AT ALL
5000 + miles Standard wheels and radio. Red calipers No changes Never over 100 mph Seat covers and mats since day 2 . Bought new in my name All services . Never liked it . Still don't NOT a financially driven sale Tampa FL fcorp1@tampabay.rr.com
Im not that impressed by the car. I find the cable transmission linkage to be weak and horribly imprecise ,the lateral seating support non existant and the lack of carry space silly and use-limiting (even the Countach had a truck, btw). Oh, and don't forget the stupid hard plastic seat buttons or the overdone radio speaker .The car is very (ie too easy) to drive and, in this way and likely for me only , it lacks personality. The performance is good but not nearly twice as good (cost wise) as a Viper. Had I driven a new Viper and the Ford in close proximity I would likey have bought a Viper (but immediately trashed the gaudy wheels) and a Confederate Wraith for the cost of the Ford alone. May still do so.
As many poster seem unimpressed with the Big Mac Basketball between the seats radio , doing this is an instant (4000) price reduction. Same for the wheels if you contemplate changing them anyway. Same for the used car body shop quality stripes.

To further keep this thread off topic, there's a guy up here that has a Murci with the license plate "BULLOME"
NY state asked him to surrender the plate after they realized their mistake, he hasn't as of yet (2 years later). I wonder if they'll send him a registration renewal!!!!

Interesting marketing technique. Dump on a car you are trying to sell. If you find German car quality "attractive" you would have been disappointed with my last (08) M5 which I dumped (due to the usual German overengineering glitches) for an American CTS-V which has been flawless. Dave would look good in yellow--sell it to him.

When you post threads like this they are flame magnets and I would not be too surprised if you get negative criticism. :thumbsdow

Its not often that I will side with anyone but I agree 100% with DBK, sell the car if you are not happy.

Yes, the GT's have their faults but take it from me, I have had loads of so called exotica and guess what, they ALL have their faults.

BTW, if you get a V10 R8 make sure that you get a manual shift as the auto box to say the least is rubbish!! Test drive one and you will understand why I say this.

Best of luck with your new car.

I am a physician also, I am assuming you are one. I spend my time fixing broken bones, trauma victims ect. I have to agree with DBK, what is the reason you still own this GT?

If you have been happy wit the car, why still post about it.. I have both an 08 SRT10 and a GT. No question in my mind which is the better built automobile. SRT10 is an excellent car but it is not the quality of the FGT. So rambling about owning an SRT10 viper means very little here. However, the Viper Club of America is a great organization, perhaps they would love to here your stories?

If you are a physician, you are use to making decisions that effect peoples lives, so make one that effects yours and sell the car to ShelbyElite Autos and move on with your life.

There won't be a lot of interest in the continuance of this story, I can assure you, on this Forum.

For the record, I am in no way, shape or form saying there is nothing to bitch about with the GT. This guy has just been on here for five years, and the few times he chooses to post it's usually some sob story about how the GT sucks and he should sell it. WELL THEN SELL IT! I mean seriously, five years? Talk about not learning when to cut your losses. Must be a real glutton for punishment to keep racking up miles in that crappy yellow bucket of bolts.

p.s, I've now reconsidered and lower my offer to $99k. It sounds like there's a lot of problems with that thing.

Chip is on his way over to my house in a few minutes. I'm gonna tell on DBK.... he needs a time out!! LOL. One of the funniest posts I have read in a long time.

You are gonna make a good dad, Dave. Often, the truth just needs to be said... instead of just being the elephant in the room!

As I have always know, you do appreciate Quality which is why you own all of the above! With the exception of the Denny's gift certificate of course.

Re: German quality

Saw a 2009 Cayman outside my apt; the rear spoiler was off center & had rubbed on edge of hatch, creating rust, bubbles, flaking.

Looked inside; seats were shiny from Office Depot qaulity chair leather.

Meanwhile a 30yr old BMW I had, had spoiler rub on fender for years and never got thru primer....


I think todays German "quality" is a misnomer...all the lasers, microns of paint bs still isnt as good as ole Hans who would put on a thick layer after Beer lunch
