While not specifically an “old” Ford, I’ve got a neat picture to contribute.

Since I was old enough to learn about cars I’ve always been fascinated by the Ford GT. I’ve read “go like hell” by AJ Baime about Fords slugfest with Ferrari at LeMans in the 60’s, I’ve watched countless videos and reviews of the real cars and replicas, and I’ve studied what made them so damn good. Then when the GT was reborn in 2005 I fell in love all over again, a very loyal modern take on a legendary classic. To this day the 05-06 GT remains my favorite 4 wheeled vehicle, period. Well now that I work for Ford I see tons of advertising and email centered around the new “Ford Performance” label and the new 2017 GT, as controversial as it is with its ecoboost v6.
All that being said, me and 2-3 friends usually make the trip up to caffeine and octane the first Sunday of every month in north Atlanta to check out the cars and generally just soak up the atmosphere with other car people. When we arrived we saw the giant Ford semi in the parking lot, and I knew we were in for a treat, we just had to find what was in that truck. Well as we were walking through the “concourse” section my friend grabs me and points me to the right of where I was and points through the crowd. I immediately knew from the tiny piece of door I could see through all the people


Pardon my goofy ass, but my friends know how much of a GT geek I am and refused to let me away from it without a picture. This was THE number 66 that was fresh off the trailer from MoSport in Canada and was in town for the petit lemans at Road Atlanta. I nearly fainted

The thread title says ford pics... nothing about old. I recently found out my great uncle sold one of the 31 gt40s in street clothes they made available in 66. It was warwick green. I have to agree that the 05-06 GTs were a beautiful machine.

Not destined to do wheelstands. Bought this several years ago sight unseen off Craigslist. Someone had already converted it to a 260, but did a mediocre job. I am currently setting up a 9" to replace the toothpick-axle 7"

The last pic is with part of the rest of my Ford fleet. I need to dig out some pics of my old stuff.

120,000 miles of rippin' and tearin' through the gears. Tremec 3650, steeda tri-ax shifter, original knob.



2003 Mustang Mach 1. As the second owner, I've put 100,000 miles on this car since 2007. It's seen snow, hail, rain, 150mph, gravel, pasture, and a jeep cherokee bumper (not all at the same time). We've been through a lot together, and I'd never part with her.

I believe it was an A/FX mustang, so that may have something to do with it.

Edit.. idk, because that is an efi engine. I didn't see the fuel rails and injectors on first look. I can't say where the shock towers went lol

...at least it was nicely done, but I wouldn't expect anything less from Holman-Moody. I've seen some seriously butchered big block transplants over the years.

I can only imagine how rare that Hilborn fuel injection system is.

well... since you had to ask, a chic standing on the inside of the track with a laps to go sign, held up topless with 70's b-ball shorty shorts on wouldn't hurt my feelings any.

As I have mentioned before, a lot of my Ford Performance pics are from George Waters. George was also the supervising sound editor for "Gone in 60 seconds"

Here's the story of the wrecked Eleanor cars from George Waters himself:

"After reading the discussions of the seven figure Eleanor’s last week, I figured it was time to get out my original pictures for everyone to see. I took all of these on my first trip to Cinema Vehicles in late 1999 when I was searching for a car to use for the sound of Eleanor (as I discussed last week when we posted pictures of the 67 GT 500 that would become that sound). I have not looked at these in years and as you can see this is what the cars looked like after their use in the movie. When I saw them in person they were just very used, really beat, extremely dirty movie prop cars and that was it. I did get a chance to look at one of the “Beauty” Eleanor’s parked inside but unfortunately did not take any pictures, but I can tell you the car was stunning. It had the full interior that we see in the movie, along with the powerful engine and beautiful paint. By the way, this car was used for close ups and interior shots but not for the speed scenes. You could say that this car Had It All!! It was also used in all of the promotional pictures that we all have seen thru the years especially the ones with Nick standing next to it.

Getting back to my story, the rest of the cars that you see in the pictures below I must say disappointed me when I saw them. I did not know at that time that in a hour or so I would end up finding a real 67 GT 500 on the premises and that car would become the sound of Eleanor. I remember that 11 Eleanor’s were built and an additional one was completed after the movie came out. I probably saw 7 or 8 in the yard that day and ended up test driving the two best condition ones on city streets, but right off the bat I knew they were not safe and would not work at all. Everything was bad including the brakes, steering, shocks, ride, rattles, squeaks, the smell of gasoline etc. etc. etc., and on top of that they DID NOT SOUND GOOD!

Each of the 11 cars served a specific purpose during filming. We know that the “Beauty” cars were used for exterior close ups, interior driving and dash board shots and promotion, but in addition there were cars fitted with new stronger engines for the high speed driving scenes such as the ones filmed in the LA River bed. There was also the cars used for the crash scenes and as you can see in a couple of my pictures they were basically destroyed. When I looked in the interiors of the non “beauty“ cars, other than the roll bar and steering wheel, they were stock and had nothing else that would tell you that they were Eleanor's. When you look at the movie there is absolutely no way you would know that you are seeing 11 different cars.

It's really something now to look back after all these years and realize that, at the time, they were as I said earlier, just used movie prop cars, but now they are worth a fortune. I would have never thought this would happen. I am just glad that we were lucky enough to find and be able to record a REAL 1967 GT 500 (#3196) and Eleanor will always be the sound of that car."

That wasn't any crappy old truck 5.4 triton engine now... That was a dohc all aluminum 5.4 with a twin screw blower perched between those four camshafts. The only similarity between the GT 5.4 and the triton is the overall design of the block.

Having driven a 4.6 dohc for 100,000 miles, i have a great love for the 4 cam engines. I will agree that the 5.4 3v sucks in stock form
