Did something new today. Took a half an hour drive to see a car. A local Ford dealership has a GT on display, and Holy Jesus was it worth it. They made like 5,000 of these things, and they run about $125K. If you have the means, I highly recommend picking one up. Right there in the showroom, besides the disappointing Mustang, is this beast of a vehicle, on display behind a white chain as if it were a piece of art. Now, if I were a for-real car guy, I’d be going on about all kinds of details. I’m only a dabbler, so all I can say is that it was goddamn hot. Once again I find myself incapable of waiting for Gran Turismo 4.
Here’s the only negative thing I have to say about the Ford GT: there’s a sweet looking speaker between the seats. Why is that negative? Under what circumstances are you playing the radio while driving this thing? Aren’t you supposed to be listening to the angelic (demonic?) hum of the engine behind your head? Shit, if I owned that car, I’d have an Ipod with a single mp3 of that sound and would listen to it all the damn time.
