    My next door neighbor has a blue FORD GT w/the white stripes. It is the sex. He is a retired NY Yankee BB player and has lots of nice rides,just got a blk Porsche GT2. The susp is so stiff on the GT that when he pulls out of the driveway , we have a small drainage trough dip thing that runs around the bottom of everyone's driveway in the cul-de -sac, that the right front tire stays in that air when he backs out over it.

    I'm so tempted to move back to So Cal, even though the gun laws suck. One more voter for our side?

    Sorry, Steel Head, that is not a GT40. On the original the 40 in GT40 noted the roof height. The modern one is taller.

    I moved out of California, but cars are one thing I miss. (And the ability to drive fast without highway patrol every ten feet. :crying: )

    I'm back and forth between locations and recently drove to pick up my daughter from an airport in So. Cal. On that one trip, I saw an Audi R8 GT, a couple of Porsche Panamera's and a Maserati broke down on the side of the highway.

    Where else, except for Miami, (or the south of France) does one see so many nice rides?

    I do like the originals more than the new versions but the new version is not hard on the eyes.

    :tongueout:

    I've sat in an original 40 that was built in the 60's. I remember how WIDE the door seals are. Also, had to angle my legs toward the right to touch the pedals.

    Maybe just sit me in the car with some Top 40 on the Delco AM, push-button radio playing and folk can just peer in at me.

    Steel Head, when they built the first GT40 it was a computer design. They went so far as to map the entire 24 hour Le Mans into the computer and drove the entire race on a dyno thingy. The end result was gorgeous and smooth as a baby's bottom. Problem was the computer had never witnessed a 170mph wind, and other little inconveniences encountered on the actual track. Plus, it was squirrelly as hell. By the time they got it to go fast without trying to kill the driver it weren't nearly as pretty, with little air dams and spoilers and tabs and wings, but it was wicked fast.

    The reason for the GT40 in the first place was Ferrari would not their racing division to Ford, and Ford really wanted to win the 24 hour.

    The street version of the GT40 stayed pretty clean, like the ones Hertz rented.
