Are there any news about the buying process for Europeans ? Or are we applying to the same program like the US guys?

Will this be posted in the member's/owner's section only, or does everyone get to see it?

I was still in residency in 2005-2006. Couldn't quite swing the $ for a new GT on a resident's salary, even with moonlighting.

I had to buy used as well. I was changing oil and helping a diesel tech at the local ford dealer in 05...over 10 years later still doing the same tasks! What happened.

Another rumor, this one posted January 6, 2016 on www.gt40s.com. So, does anyone know of any outreach by Ford to FGT owners or anyone else yet?

<< ============ >>

I understand original 05-06 GT owners were contacted and a process was offered. They are NOT being done via dealers and so far there is no option for a Ford dealer who wants a car for themselves (and I suspect Ford would rather the cars go to public owners as opposed to a dealer). You can go here: Ford - Cars, SUVs, Trucks & Crossovers | Ford Vehicles | The Official Site of Ford Vehicles | Ford.com and register your interest in updates and I suspect you will get the application details.

NO. NOT TRUE.

The only outreach was Raj announcing the allocation broad outlines in front of owners that came to the Rally.

Special Ed, are you still going to buy one, or let me have your slot? I know you how you dislike those fake plastic engine covers. That's something they would do on a Vette.

Lastly, the engine now sports a plastic cover that proudly reads "EcoBoost."

Yes, it's true I am not an engine cover fan. I've mentioned in another thread that the packaging constraints would not make the engine bay a thing of esthetic pleasure but would be an area of practicality. So, in this case a cover is needed.

I am an EcoBoost fan. Both Dr Frank & I will be getting EcoBoost tatoos at Daytona.

UUUUhhhhhhh, cobraownr, where have you been???:confused

A member here on the Forum from July 2007 and amassed 88 posts. You need to spend a little more time here if you have a real interest in following either the 2005-2006 or the new 2016 Ford GT.

Dave states the obvious in his above post. Raj Nair gave us owners at the Ford Product Development Center how Ford intended to "outreach" to current FGT owners. Go to Youtube and look up his presentation to us owners at the rally. This way you will know the details exactly as they were presented.

There is no shortage of people who will tell others what they want to hear.
Amen.
