    Saw a new Ford GT sitting in a garage in Ocean City today

    Garage door was open for just a few minutes. Wanted to snap a pic but didn't get a chance to. It appeared to be silver with black stripes. Doesn't Ford only make like a thousand of these things a year?

    Yeah I think people had to write essays to Ford telling them why they should be able to buy one.

    I'm surprised JD could see this Ford GT through its protective air-conditioned bubble. He was probably getting ready to load it on the transporter to take it to RM or Mecum auctions.

    To discourage flipping they made it so that you couldn't sell it for two years. Only way to get out of that is to claim financial hardship, which someone did apparently.

    Saw two of the G550 4x4 in the same day last week (one Yellow on matte Black)..... Only 300 were rumored to come to the US and production was from Feb 2017 to Oct 2017

    The Guy who owned the Lambo MTI boats and cars tried like hell to get one and he was denied. Long time super car owner as well but had never had a Ford GT and that was enough to say no to him.

    there are at least two down in OCMD. There is a dark blue one that comes to the local C&C events up here. the owner has a place down in OCMD so you might see another as well.

    There is one running around here. He shows up at a car show or 2 a year. It makes me sad. Paint is swirled as fuck and the rims are always filthy

    On the contrary, I think it’s awesome. Cars shouldn’t be museum pieces.

    My client told me the GT house were owners (or maybe former owners) of Miller’s Ale House chain. Never heard of it but it appears they have quite a few restaurants.

    While I agree that cars are meant to be driven and not sitting around not being enjoyed, the condition just makes me said. It's such a rare and expensive care, to just go out there and wash it with a dirty old towel and not even bother to clean the rims off just sucks. I've seen people take better care of 20 year old Civics.

    There's a few thousand of those (assuming you mean the 05-06), not like it's a LaFerrari or something.

    I've seen a Bugatti Veyron twice around town. The surprising thing is it's been during rush hour so the owner appears to drive it regularly. Definitely the most rare car I've seen. I couldn't fathom spending over $1M on a car. The second most rare car I've seen is likely a lexus LFA years ago. I love the LFA.

    A number of years ago I saw a Porsche 911 GT1 on the street. I almost shit myself. See a couple of Veyrons, one in rush hour traffic ironically

    Yeah, I think the guy with the Veyron lives in Wash Park. Both times I've seen him, he's been coming from the on ramp of University in the morning.

    And GT1. Never seen one in person ever.

    If I ever won the lotto I would buy some super rare cars that no one drives and daily drive/track them to people.

    Idk if it's the casino or the beaches or cruising the coast but there are always really nice cars driving around here. Aventador at the casino is most recently what I can remember.

    I got a chance to check out this one at a friend's open house for the 200 year old mansion that they are restoring. It's a polished aluminum '55 Triumph TR2; 1 of 1. Did not ask the value.














    Nice people, and a very cool car!
