Very cool. Thanks for designing my dream car Camillo. The photo of you and my son at Indy is one of his prized possessions.

Dave - THANK YOU for setting this up - what a GREAT idea!

Camilo - Thank YOU for designing such a beautiful automobile, that pays real homage to it's roots, and is refreshingly contemporary at the same time. It is most certainly an absolute, 100% BULLS-EYE for it's intended market! We are deeply indebted to you and the entire GT Team for creating an outstanding tribute to the legend of the Ford GT40.
regards,

Jeff
What he said - Thanks Dave & Camilo!

How many models did you go thru to break thru the "artist" block? Take that anyway you want to. :lol:lol

Great and sincere answers.
Camillo Fantastic job all the way around. Owning a very accurate recreation of the 68/69 Gulf GT40 you car is very true to the heritage of the former. To be honest until I actually got a drive in the Ford GT I had no intention what so ever of buying one. So I bought 2 instead. :)
Thanks to all involved. Keep the questions and answers coming.

Merry Christmas to all,

Oh man, I just thought of a great one for Camilo.

Of all the models that 'contributed' to his artistic vision of the GT. Is there one that stands out as the most and could we get her name and/or a few pix?

Frankie - Victoria's has an 800 number, which I'm sure is already on on your speed dial. :eek

Anything new on the other "Ten Questions with..." thread?

I have a new (to me) question;

Why was the faux wing window added? Is the strut a structural component? The prototype show car did not have one. I would have guessed it adds drag.

I would also guess there wasn't a huge cost savings by making the movable section smaller.
