  4. The GT40 was one of the all time great sports racing cars. I give Ford a lot of credit for bringing it back. Forget owning one, I would love to just see one.

    This was an impressive 4 year run for the Ford Motor Company's racing efforts as they beat the best in one of the toughest races in the world.

    That's gotta be awesome having that supercharged DOHC aluminum V8 right where the rear passengers usually are. Think of the balance. I have a Camaro which gets the weight nearer the center of the car by moving the driver back, and reducing the space for rear passengers and kramming the engine right up to the firewall. I've been rebuilding the suspension with really stiff components and the more I do with it the more fun my commute is, pretty puny compared to a rear engined car I'm sure. I've had the GT40 as a screensaver for months, it's my reason for trading!!
    Haven't seen any skid pad tests on the GT40, supposed to be out in 2005.
