Ford GT, railing.

I met up with some buddies yesterday to hit Mt. Lemmon. Pretty much our normal ride on the way up and most of the way down. We get almost to the bottom of the mountain and are coming down a staright. At the end of this straight is a seriously nice left hander. I'm just coasting down and sitting up on the bike. I begin to prep for the corner and am looking through it when I see the most beautiful sight. A bright yellow 2005 Ford GT HAULING ASS around the corner. My eyes instantly ballooned to an unforseen size. This guy was driving this car like it was meant to be driven. As he rushed by I could feel the rumble of the V8 in my chest. I looked at the passenger and he looked as if he has seen a ghost. His face was pale and lookin a bit scared. Man what a beatiful sound. I really wanted to turn around and follow him up the mountain.

He was probably on an emergency trip to the dealer for a safety recall.

And then there's this asshole...

He probably just got it back and was testing it out.

Re: Ford GT, railing.

I don't think I've ever seen a yellow one, that must be pretty hard to miss.

Re: Ford GT, railing.

He was racing to fill up gas. I hear they drink it like it's free.

Be fast or be last.

Re: Ford GT, railing.

I tend to stay far away from anything that has Ford written on the nameplate!

Look, lean, believe!!

Re: Ford GT, railing.

Hey now I work at Ford! Now I have to say I must regret the GT because I was really hoping for a competitor to the Vette....but I guess they'll never get it..... not many people can affored a 180,000 car! I guess your looking to purchase one of those new Chinese made cars! LOL.

I've seen a few yellow ones. The first time was when Niner and I were driving to the 2004 Grattan event.
