I have a question that arose this last week, from a dead battery and having to unfortunately get a California Smog certification at the same time. My battery went dead. It was 6 years old. I used the dash board trickle charger device provided with the car all the time. Are there any external battery terminals on the GT that a standard Battery Tender Jr. can be connected to use a standard battery trickle like charger connected to an AC outlet? Right now the only other option ofr continuous low voltage charging is to remove the batter cover under the front compartment and connect charger leads directly to the battery terminals. Perhaps in the engine compartment there are bolts or terminals that could be used? Once the battery is exchanged, the onboard computer and O2 sensors need to be reset, and this take a lenghty drive at 60 MPH to solve the reset the sensors, with the tank between 1/4 and 3/4s full of petrol.
Ford GT Forum (9): As a business case, did the GT make money for Ford?
Jamal Hameedi: We made a little money.
Ford GT Forum (10): What would have to happen to make a similar business case for a
follow-on exotic in todays market?
Jamal Hameedi: Supercars are dessert for a company like Ford. They always have been and always will be. It's nearly impossible to convince anyone to invest in dessert when a company is just starting to come out of one of the worst cash flow situations in its history and as a result - your balance sheet is carrying more debt than you want. So to answer your question, we need to be making money consistently and we need to have a healthy balance sheet before we can consider dessert.

what schools did you attend to get there and build your career?
And when I hired into Ford, I told myself I would leave when I had a job that wasn't fun anymore. I figured it would only be a matter of time at a big company. 19 years later, I'm still waiting for that to happen...
