Ford GT is pretty much mustangs big dady. I remeber the press releas ford held of the 5.0 and the 3.7 and they actually mentioned the Ford GT as a modle for some of the development aspects of them. So yeah, its relevant! Ill try to dig it and post it some time.
And yeah, that thing is gorgeous and quite a statement!!
Fords got some bawls showing up Ferrari's 360 modena (the 458 Italia of the time) in both style and ability!!
Of course Chevy just sat there and did nothing untill they realized how much publicity it got them and came out with the ZR1.
witch unfortunatly still looks like a Corvette. . . because . . . it is a . . .Corvette. And to the lay person, another Corvette lol. Fail!
Edit: I think Chevy had the Zo6 out at the time?
