I had to take my truck in for an oil change. And there in the show room was a brand new FORD GT. The car is even better looking in person. For some reason they wouldn't let me test drive it. Heck they couldn't even let me sit in it.
Thats one awesome car

Yeah, I'd like to see one up close and personal. I have a problem with the name now though. I know it's a copyright issue now, but when I hear GT I think Mustang GT.
It will always be a GT40 to me.

Carroll Shelby has said it never was GT40, and that was just something the english press cooked up. He claims it was always just 'Ford GT' from day 1.
