...you can't call it the GT40, Ford doesn't own the rights to the name. Safir GT40 Spares Ltd. of Cincinnati, which bought the GT40 name in 1999 reportedly wanted $40,000,000 for the use of the name. {Dorks! }

Also, I read that they are only going to build 3 for 2004, to symbolize the 1-2-3 win at LeMans. Then in 2005 they will build 1000.

I wish they would get on it and build them.

You know, since the 40 in GT40 stood for 40 inches tall, and the new version is 44 inches tall, I wonder why they didn't call it the GT44?

It will prob.go the way of the Thunderbird in a couple of years. They can't produce them in any great #'s,& the going price will prob. be over a hundred grand ,then Ford will pull the plug. My 2 cents worth.---S.
