This Guy's on crack...

First of all he uses the wrong pic...secondly his comments are pure BS...
...never quite caught our imaginations?????
Ford GT
Cole Porter wrote "Our love affair was too hot not to cool down." So it goes with the GT, a monstrous, roaring hunk o' burning love that appealed to deep-pocketed lovers of American muscle cars, but never quite caught our imaginations like, say, the Viper or 'Vette. It also wasn't helped by its $120,000-plus price tag.

someone immediatley find this guy and slpa him. it always suprises me how there are so many intelligent, talented, and well informed people without jobs, or at the least in jobs not utilizing them to thier potential, and there are total aboslout fools liek this walking around with jobs that they are in no way qualified for. he is the kind of guy that even if he were working at mcdonalds he would be telling you they don't sell big macs anymore.

I think Josh Max has too much bran in his Cherrios. Mustangs sales are way up and the S197 as caught the attention of a lot of people. Makes you wonder where he came up with the figure of $120,000.00 for a Mustang GT. Obviously this guy does not like Mustangs.....probably drives a ricer.

For the price he is indicating, I could have four new Mustang GT's on the carport.

He was talking about the Ford GT. not the Mustang GT. They accidentally used a picture of a mustang.

Well, this guy is a DOPE!! The Ford GT was and will be one of the best American made supercars EVER made. The power one can get from small mods is shocking. Plus the car is roomy, comfy, its not crude or loud inside, and unlike a Viper, its comfortable for long distance driving, and there is NOWHERE NEAR the heat soak Viper drivers get when driving their cars. If I won the lotto, I'd have 2!! I love this car and its SICK, SICK FAST (drove one several times and I didn't want to stop)!!!!

If ignorance is bliss this guy is in a constant state of nirvana. First of all, as pointed out wrong photo! and he has no knowledge of auto history. the Ford GT was basically a updated version of the GT40. the Ford GT from the beginning was slated for a short production run of only 2 or 3 years, As stated by the designer Camilo Pardo head of Fords living Legends studio. He worked under the guidance of the legendary J. Mays the man who designed the GT40 and as far as I know the last Ford GT was built in 2006, production run from 2003 to 2006 total cars built 4,038 this article goes to show how much erroneous info exists on the internet....

I think you mean Mustang sales are way down.

In Jan 2007, 9,064 Mustangs were sold, 2008 sales declined 28% over Jan 2007 - down to a total of 6,500 units. Worse still, Jan 08 was a 42% decline over the 11,208 Mustangs sold in Jan 2006.

But regardless, this guy's comments are asinine. He's obviously a Ford hater...one of many.
