besides, anyone who calls this car bullshit doesn't deserve the title "automotive enthusiast" ;)



They exist to inspire us. The world would be a boring place without them.
The GT is great. The idea that it has any kind of tangible market influence downstream is definitely bullshit. Just because it makes you tingly in the pants doesn't mean it works magic. It's an excuse for Ford engineering to have something more exciting to work on than Focuses.

But those products came out before the GT. If anything, it was capillary action :lol:
