Ford GT

Today while my dad and i were at the ford dealer getting his truck's oil changed, a blue ford GT shows up. I honestly almost couldnt contain myself from cheering, it was awesome. A local doctor bought it.

p.s. My dad is currently putting 10 grand down on one :)!!!! not kidding whatsoever

I sat in a preproduction one at the SAE world cogress. neat, but I whacked my head on the cut out door when I got out.

FYI the first thirty three GT's off the line contain a part built by yours truly. I was responsible for installing and proving out the assembly line that builds the throttle body (its 30% bigger than the 6.8L V10 dual bore). I hand assembled the first production order of thirty three. coooooool

Yeah the GT is a nice car. In fact, I just bought mine a few days ago and let me tell you it is one awesome car. Mine is about 3 inches high and 8 inches long and weights approx 2.4 lbs.

One went for around $250k near me. It was a bidding war and went for 100 grand more than it's 150k price tag.

Yep theres a lot of rich people around where I live. There is a guy up the street who prides himself because he owns a 360 spider and he drives it really slow so everyone can get a look then he parks diagonally in two parking spaces (I would do the same if I drove it). My brother claims to have raced him once on his honda cbr 600 but i can't picture that guy ever driving his car fast. All I ever see around here are people with nice cars that drive them very slowly

Jeez. I should have followed him and wrote down where he lived, we got Detroiters that would pay for that info! lol jk. But yeah, if I had the cash, I wouldent get one, I would rather get a mustang or a Corvette and just have a lot of fun modding it up and making it fast, instaed of just buying the car fast.
