My favorite exotic Ford has to be the GT-40.

I cannot imagine a sexier looking car.

The one I drove at Dearborn test facility (a Le Mans "mule" that could be bought) was noisy as hell and uncomfortable. But it did go pretty well... I should have bought that car... bought a used Porsche 1600 Super Speedster instead (it had bumpers and was slightly less noisy and uncomfortable). I mean, I had to commute in Detroit traffic...

That brings up the question of which "street" (or "streetable") production (as opposed to kit) car is the lowest? My '61 Lancia Appia Zagato was 39" tall and the driving position was semi-reclining.

I went to a car show a couple of years ago in Cincinnati and saw a GT90, that was one fun looking car. I would love to take one for a test drive, i might even bring it back when i was done, naaaaaa

I can do that with my Mustang right now! Not as low as that MG I'm sure...but it's still easy for me to reach the ground!
