Oh and I found this.. I haven't gotten the latest MT yet, is this it??
Vanace, I agree, Ford might be getting way over their heads, financially speaking, with the GT40? But it's still so freakin awesome.

yup thats the one... good article. I don't think Ford is building it to make money... but what image capitol it will be!! I think in a few years Fords problems with quality and image will be gone becuase of Mr. Bill Ford.. another car nut. Jaque Nasser was VERY bad for Ford.

Thanks Vanace!! I agree, ford is going places and has come a ways. I wonder how the new 500 will do when that comes out. There is so much competition nowadays, they really can't "half-ass" anything! The new accord looks sweet, I must say. To me, it kinda looks like the back of a mercedes, well, for a quick second!
Gosh, why am I not getting this mag yet?! I moved so maybe it's still at my old place.. grrr...

Its a beautiful car. I got to see it in person at the All Ford Nationals show in Carlisle. And it sounded mean too.

I wonder how heavy it is.
I had no idea this thing was going to be so badass. This is way different than any GT ever produced. I thought it was just going to be a newer body style with a similar engine. I'm suprised it is going to have Brembos. I wonder if it will have a stiff suspension also. This thing is gonna be hella mean. Its like a Cobra except its a GT. I bet it will hang with an '03 Cobra. The back of the car looks wicked. I'm not a Mustang guy but I might have to change my mind in 2005.

Both actually. The Mustang concept, and the GT. Also the 427 was also very nice looking.

Some pics of those cars are in here: http://www.imagestation.com/album/?id=4290002623

wow i like how ppl argue against me amongst themselves when im gone, guess what, its a toned down GT40 they have the same style patterns, both use older styling and add new styling to them, look at the interiors, yes if you look at them seperately they seem completely differnt, but you ppl need to look at the big picture, hell compare a focus and a taurus, if you pick a sedan focus and a current taurus, the focus looks like a smaller version of the taurus, look at the truck and SUV lines...they are all fords, and cars closest in class have simialar things about them, the GT is cheap, compare it to the cars in its class, i think it was AUTOMOBILE magazine that did this last month, guess what, the GT is cheaper, faster, gets better gas mileage and handles better than the lil V8 Lambo and the ferrari (i think it was the 360 not sure) so how is it overpriced? its a fn supercar, take the new mustang and add full race prep and balls and youve got a GT(40) and i call it "GT(40)" because i dont like calling it a GT, everyone thinks of, guess what, a MUSTANG when you say that
