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.
