  1. It's a really interesting custom GT. The body buck was off of one of the Robertsons LeMans car, and the rest is all custom build.
  2. You also might purchase adhesive promoter from the paint/parts store. It makes a huge difference in the effectiveness of any adhesive including the excellent 3M tape.
  3. Good find. I picked up the Snake and the Mongoose haulers from the same series. There's a Ford Going Thing hauler in the works, probably the end of the year.
  4. There is also the Cobra Ferarri Wars, which is a fantastic piece but more geared toward the earlier years of the Cobra and Daytona Coupe part of the bigger picture which will probably not be covered in the movie and is not really included in Go Like Hell either. But it's really a better story.
  5. Voted as well. It's kinda my whole bucket list, except for Tesla and BMW. Lucky to have been to 6 of the 20 listed. Can't understand why Woodward, Pebble Beach, Goodwood, SEMA and MCACN aren't on there.
  6. I know pretty much everyone here is ready for the Ford vs Ferrari movie, and many may have seen the 24 Hour War video, but this is a much better piece and it's not Ford vs Ferrari but Cobra vs Ferrari. I've got it on disc, but now its on You Tube and worth the time...
  7. Happy 4th! Ford found a good way to celebrate...in England no less! https://autoweek.com/article/car-news/ford-gt-mk-ii-revealed-goodwood-festival-speed-america
  8. There was also an F150 Tremor for a short time... https://www.caranddriver.com/reviews/a15109933/2014-ford-f-150-tremor-35l-ecoboost-v-6-4x2-4x4-test-review/
  9. I'm certain that the shaker 1000 wasn't available on the Mach 1 for 03/04 due to the requisite 17' tire and larger spare to clear the Brembo brake package. I'm guessing that the Cobra was under the same rules for the same reasons.
  10. The same can be said for all of the Mustangs listed as well, times change and so do cars. My (3) 69s were similar but very different from my 73, and my 82 was light years beyond them in all regard with the exception of power. My 01 felt like little more than a freshening of my 82 (which it kinda was), whereas my '03 Mach 1 was leaps and bounds beyond the car only two years its senior, even being on the same platform. The 13 Boss is in a different league, while the '16 GT350R I drove was nirvana to me. The middle child GT to me was a perfect car for a perfect time, and the new one is a race car that's been made streetable. But its still a car. With two doors and an engine and a Ford logo, its still transportation, which can barely be said about the original Ford GT (40). The one thing I've always felt about the 05/06 GT is that ford got a wake up call in the pricing department. For what it was and what it cost (sticker) I always thought it was a bit of a bargain, and I'm sure Fords upper management had a jaw dropping moment when it realized how much profit the dealers were making on the car, which was later backed up by the secondary market pricing skyrocketing the way it did. Regardless of how the competition was or is priced, the market adjustments on the new cars have been a bit mind numbing.
  11. The video was very cool. And that is about what I paid for mine used (3k miles) in '15. I have the Mach 1 and the Boss. the Grande I sold in 2001, but I still have a copy of the dealer invoice that Lois Eminger supplied that shows the MSRP, and the '82 GT was my first new car, sold in '92. Just wanted to help show the progression of pricing, But we do have consider content as well.
  12. Forgot my other car: 2013 Mustang Boss 302 = $44,990 (Recaro/Torsen package)
