I figured we ought to run a numerical car pic today.
Ford GT. We've covered the GT-40 previously, so here's the re-boot retro-car from about 10 years ago. It never really took, but boy howdy they got the retro thing down pat.With only about 4,000 models produced, it might be a good candidate to pick up and store for down the road.
Except, of course, that if you bought one, you'd have to drive it. And if you drove it, you'd have to have a heart of stone not to want to keep driving it. So I suppose if you had enough cash, you could buy 2 and put one away. But then again, two is one, right?
Ford's batting about .250 on their retro vehicles. The T-bird and the GT never caught on, and I have to deduct points from the Mustang because, well, it's the Mustang. Unless they decided to go all "Mustang II" with it, it's going to sell well. With that said, though, I'll give mad props for the 2005 redesign - they did a great job providing a modern look with plenty of retro cues.
Now, when's that retro-Bronco coming out?
That is all.
