Our 1966 GT40 underwent some restoration and repair this winter, in the form of removing both gas tanks to weld and relocate fittings.
This week on AFTER/DRIVE, Zac and Mike join host Mike Spinelli to determine whether the new GT will be the raw, race-bred driving experience like our '66 GT40, or suffer from the driving nannies that plague so many modern supercars today.
The 1966 Ford GT40 is not like most cars. Sure, its got headlights, air conditioning, and a key, but that's not my point.
It's been a good year at Classic Car Club Manhattan. A healthy dose of racing, in many different flavors, kept us on our toes during the summer months. While off-track we were busy driving the GT40 through tunnels, exploring the countryside in search of the ever-elusive 'perfect road', and destroying jbh's GoPros.
Few things in this world rouse the excitement of car enthusiasts more than tunnels, GT40s, and exhaust flames. In fact, when James May talks about the "fizzing sensation" he experiences somewhere behind his penis which "explains why certain cars possess us in an inexplicable way" this is what he's talking about.
