Wow, I remember coming to Troy (SAE presentation perhaps??), and seeing that car for the 1st time. Was very impactful. Was not the 1st we saw, but the 1st finished one (obviously). Fun to think back, and so hard to believe its been that long (heck ours turned 5 this month)..... Man time flies.....

I'm a day late here, but 6 years ago yesterday the first GT delivery took place. There are a handful of deliveries remaining, but I expect the last car to be out by probably 3/15.

The Day Before. A bit different back then.

It was so early on, the Big Orange Trucks were not yet in operation. Was the truck from Roush pretty? No, but these are the kinds of things you look back on and think, ha, what a crazy time to be involved with everything. There was definitely some heart attacks with that unloading angle.

The first time anyone had seen a privately owned Ford GT in the wild a few days later.

Thanks DBK for all the memories we all have enjoyed. I remember when Raj announced that the GT Forum members would have a high percentage of the new GTs when ordering started. Sometimes good things do happen!

You really can't see the blue highlights unless close up. Thanks for the pics Dave. OR, is this some Jedi mind trick using blue lighting?

BTW, are the later cars coming with Sync 4 or 4A? Or are we all on Sync 3?

The Blue is subtle indoors. Pops out under the detailing lights, but I have yet to have it outside in the sun.
