When I read this my first thought was it was a reply to the penis car....then I caught "windshield".

OH I just read the whole ad. "The Carfax report shows “moderate to severe” damage in November 2015 and again in November 2016, and the front bumper was subsequently replaced. "

No wonder it's a decent price.

Funny; shit only shows up in Carfax if there's an insurance claim.

I can only imagine the insurance adjusters quote;

Bumper
bumper reinforcement
Glans support
Urethra damage...

Shouldn't just go for a Corvette for 90,000 bucks?

I wouldn't touch that POS for $9000.

I love the '04-'06 GT. My favorite exotic after the F1.

People complained about powertrain but it truly is a beauty, and performs!!!

A supercharged V8, six speed stick, nothing to complain about there. :huh:

Yeah I don't recall any complaints about it, it was a hit right from the get go...I mean considering its price tag it was always going to be low volume. That being said Ford probably could have doubled the price and still sold the exact same number of them.

People complained that if it was a "true supercar" it had to have a 10 or 12 cylinder.

But I agree, fantastic car, they could have doubled the asking price and would have sold all of them.

OR, I figure they could have bumped the price up enough to keep producing them and churning profit?...

Those people are idiots. The GT40 was a V8 car, and this GT was a faithful tribute to it. That being said it annoys me the current GT has a V6.

The earlier GT was, more or less, a tribute to the GT40.  The current GT is basically a purpose built track car with exotic attributes.

Still, I would rather have the earlier GT.

Same. Current one does nothing for me.

Oh yeah, I do recall there being some the "not enough cylinders" or the engine being too plebian as it was introduced. I think most of it went away when people drove it though.

NO LIE saw a red Ford GT in the middle of nowhere, SC. Passed the other way on a 55mph highway. Super sexy!
