In a poetic turn of events, Mike found himself behind the wheel of a black 2015 GT 50th Anniversary Package.

1973 Ford GT-40The mythical Ford GT-40 has been coveted by Ford enthusiasts since the day it appeared on the scene. This magnificent automobile was the idea of Henry Ford II, to bring attention to the high performance vehicles that Ford was capable of producing. He started the Ford Advanced Vehicles Division in Slough, England to break Ferrari’s dominance of road racing. This high performance sports car emerged as the primary adversary of Ferrari. The most historic event was the 24 Hours of LeMans in June, 1966. In that race, Ford not only prevented Ferrari from winning a sixth straight title, but also finished one, two, and three. In 1966, the GT-40 Mark 3 was introduced, which was a street version of the race cars. Years later, the GT-40 was repackaged and re-released as the Ford GT, on an extremely limited basis.
