Ford GT

Driving by a Ford dealer on the way to work yesterday I saw a GT on the showroom floor so I pulled in and took a look...Instant wet pants!! OMG I can't believe how sexy that car is!! It is soooo sexy that it looked so good even in white!! (I hate white cars). The build quality looked so good. The sticker was $152,000.... but there price they were asking was $267,000... unbelievable... but they will get it. The coolest part is the driver, looking in the rear veiw mirrow, has a eye full of the supercharger and pully. how cool is that? I want one so bad.. I would sell my body to make the money.. but women have better taste than that lol. I had a smile on my face all night at work from seeing that car.

Eh, F430 is so yesterday. The GT is the new in vogue of the wealthy. it lets them feel like they are slumming with the rest of us while staying comfortably in the wealthy elite.

GT is uber-hot... closest I ever got to one was 2 feet away on the wrong side of a velvet rope at the AutoShow... it was plenty close enough, the thing was freakin gorgeous!

The car does look great, and is essentially hand -built, but man, have they got major problems with this car: fuel tank, crankcase leaks and two major recalls already.
