2005 Ford GT 40 Road Test

When the first GT 40s were built by Ford they were legendary in design and accomplishments. I was a Corvette lover at the time and wondered why Chevrolet couldn’t build a Corvette like this for the street. I remember reading an article about how Mr. Ford tried to drive one on the street as his daily driver and had to give up due to all the attention it attracted! As much as I loved the looks of that car I would have never believed that it could do it all over again nearly 40 years later.

I was at Laguna for the Monterrey vintage races when these beautiful cars (pre-production models) were on the track. It was one of the very first public viewings and I was in love! The GT 40 remains one that I lust over but will never obtain. Watching this video is as close as I will likely get but I can dream.

I grew up and lived in Iowa for a good portion of my life before moving to Southern California. After 20+ years we now live outside Nashville Tennessee. I have been into cars since I was old enough to remember. I don't have a brand loyalty although I do prefer American Muscle especially the 1969/1970 NASCAR Aero Cars. (Check out our other web site at site) As long as it has four wheels and an engine I get excited. Few men are lucky enough to be able to share their passion for cars with the woman they love. Fortunately, my wife, Katriana, is also a gear head and many of our activities revolve around the cars. We have a small collection that includes at least one car from each of the Big Three. It includes a Best of Show winner, a survivor, a driver with lots of patina and several others. Katrina prefers all original cars while I like to modify them so we have a few of each. When we aren't playing with cars we are out working with or showing our miniature donkeys. You can see more about that part of our lives at
