I'm surprised how many GT's are in the race.

I just turned on Fox Sports. Let my laziness begin.

I am always in awe at the automotive developments that make debut appearances each year. Ever changing technology.

I like the look of the Ford GT. If I could afford to own a car of that caliber I would have a tough time deciding between the GT and the Viper ACR.

I'm really digging the new Ford GT. More so than the viper. I was a bigger fan of the 90's models, not as much now.

It looks like a Corvette at a distance. That is something I don't care for.

Have any of the Ford GT 3.5 V6 ecoboom's lost a cylinder yet?

I am impressed that this little engine is enduring the abuse thrown at it at the moment. However, in street trim the car cost almost a half million dollars. For $400,000 Ford better have everything buttoned down.

15 minutes left and the Ford GT is standing strong in its class. I am impressed.

I really dislike the ecoboost engine, but it has done well in France.

The future of the auto market is staring at us. Small displacement, force inducted engines, and hybrids.

I am going to be that person to hold off as long as I can to my V8. I have even considered going with a big block Hemi from the days of old as a replacement for the engine in my poor dead Ram.

The ecoboost took first in its class. After 50 years Ford repeats history with a revolutionary design in the GT.

I'm still not a fan.

Damn shame what happened to Toyota.
I hope you're not talking about the Elephant. That engine is incredibly expensive. Maybe a 331, 354, or 392. Decent for the first gens. None of the sub 300 Cu. In. engines. Better off just trying to find a period correct replacement or a 440.

The entire Toyota crew had a blank stare. They were speechless.

I'm happy for Porsche, but it sucks to know you basically won by default.

Not sure on which Hemi yet. I honestly need a 4.7 to drop in the thing. Sadly when the truck engine let go it cost me in terms of income. Right now I'm in a tight spot trying to locate and purchase an engine.

"To finish first, first you have to finish."
Always next year.
Maybe even look into those new 5.7 HEMIs.

I have found a few low mileage Hemi engines complete with wiring harness. The problem at the moment is find the $$1500-2000 that is asked for the engine (which is normally attached to a complete parts vehicle).

Financially things are not where they need to be at the moment. That's just the truth. I am in job search mode. I am willing to relocate to wherever I can survive. The music business is great when you are busy. It is a burden otherwise.

Think it would be cool as hell if you did a 12V Cummins swap.

I would like to have a V10 Viper engine. A could have a sleeper SRT 10.

I agree. I just have to patiently work and wait on the funding.
