FYI, forum member and future NFGT owner William S, graciously loaned his beautiful Superformance Gulf GT40 for this test. He's an avid reader, has attended some rallies but doesn't post much. I've driven and ridden in the car several times and that thing is stupid fast however I must agree with Karl, it's really a younger mans street car. (This will get me an irate phone call demanding I retract the last half of that last sentence LOL :lol)
Karl. Very nice wright up. I have a Gulf Blue '68 Superformance GT40. Lots of fun but primitive by today's standards. I enjoy my '06 GT very much, a joy to drive, even on long trips. Looking forward to the new '19. Looking forward to your full article. Thanks for the early forum preview.
Nice sneak peak, Karl! Its interesting to hear yours, Dave's, and Ajay's opinion on these. Makes me appreciate my 05 a little more, thank you!
In a different kind of relation, people often ask which car I love most in my collection, and I too wonder if its because I'm most familiar with the GT or if its that special, because I always say the Ford is my favorite. I think this helps remind me just how truly special this car is, and always will be.
Enjoyed the read and your perspective. I look forward to reading the articles when they are published and I hope that DBK will post them in this thread (as a point of continuity) as subsequent addendums.
