QT time with a Ford GT

No, I didn't get to drive it...but I spent about 30 minutes looking over a brand new one on a showroom floor here. WOW is what I need to say about that car...the craftsmanship was unparallel to many other cars I have seen. Probably the only common supercar I can really compare it to *close up* is the Viper GTS. I was shocked at the $250,000 price tag, but all and all the car looked great! It was blue with white racing stripes

The engine bay was sickest of all, and being able to look out the back window at the motor was super cool!

It had the whole "no touchy" sign on it, but I touched a few things (not myself) and was surprised to learn that some things were plastic. Like the rear air ducts. I was also shocked to see the speedometer as an after thought...I liked the tac big and bold! The racer "look" switches were very truck - yet the radio looked like it was back from the original GT!

All and all I give it a big thumbs up, and I enjoyed bonding with it…Yet I remember how shitty the car handled in GT4!

Team Honda - well sorta...

Re: QT time with a Ford GT

I drove one, but with the owner next to me. I would buy a Ferrari instead in a second. The radio is an Aftermarket MacIntosh unit that was discontinued a few years ago. It's been resurrected by Clarion and is available in the Ford Gt and an option in the Subaru Legacy in Japan.

I hate that. Kind of like the shitty Delco radio that the Vette shares with the Cavalier.

That's ok Ferrari uses shitty Fiat parts bin stuff in its cars too.

And then there's this asshole...
