Buying a 2005 Ford GT for My Collection? To Join My New GT

Auto e motori

Would the first generation Ford GT be a great addition to the Shmeemobiles? With my growing collection of Fords in the Shmeemobiles, I've often thought about adding the original GT to my new GT, Shelby GT500 and Heritage Focus RS. Let's go for a test drive!
During this tour, I've been really looking forward to getting behind the wheel again of an original Ford GT; launched in 2004 to celebrate Ford's 100th anniversary, and of course the middle-step generation between the original 1960s GT40 and the more recent second generation GT. I last drove one quite a number of years ago but it always stuck with me as a possible addition to the garage in future.
Safe to say that prices have increased since the car first launched, commanding almost double the original list price to find one now. However, this particular example that belongs to a close friend of mine is a great spec in the white and blue paint, with "all 4" of the factory options; paint stripes, painted calipers, sound system and upgrade wheels.
While the new GT features a lightning fast dual clutch linked to a twin turbo V6, the previous is totally different with a manual gearbox and a supercharged V8. Visually there are a lot of similarities in the design, but the 05/06 is much more a comfortable daily driver or grand tourer, whereas the 17 is all about the race track and success story at the 24hrs of Le Mans.
It's not the most powerful car in the world, but it's certainly a very emotive car to drive with huge amounts of engagement in the experience. From a collection standpoint, there's a big appeal in how it could fit in my line-up so it's certainly one for me to watch in the future.
Thanks for watching, Tim

    I admire the effort you put in your videos mate, digital currencies continues to reshape the world globally it's hard for anyone going against them these days, though from a trader perspective I feel we really need more experts in the field updating newbies on how the community works. Crypto currencies are gradually moving forward to something and the price surge over the past few months it's just the beginning of a greater things to come. Lot of people are skeptical on when to buy-in the market and knowing when it's not too late to buy an asset,when you're hodling it could be but when trading it's never too late to buy. A trader with the right master plan and indicators earns big regardless of the market price ( bulls or bears). I trade using signals from specialist Raghee Horner, with her guide and signal service I've made over $475k worth of crypto assets over some months. only for crypto inclined issues connect Raghee Horner +1 = 972 = 750 = 4233 W🇺🇸H🇺🇸A🇺🇸T'🇺🇸S...A🇺🇸P🇺🇸P

    I do appreciate your channel Shmee, very much. I will vote Yes for adding this model to your wonderful collection. I could easily look this up for clarification, but I will challenge my memory and say that the driver's side door configuration is called the, "Gurney door" because Dan Gurney, one of the original drivers of the GT~40 at LeMans in the 60s, was quite taller than his co-drivers. So, the engineers designed the door to make it easier for him to get his tall, and lanky body in and out of the car more easily and quickly during driver changes.

You should join the Ford GT Forum on line and do some research if you’re serious.. lots of knowledge from owners there. Good luck and you won’t be disappointed! NFGT stuff on the forum too!
