For racing car and movie enthusiasts, this one looks interesting with Matt Damon and Christian Bale:

...good "car movie", quite awhile since one, "Le Mans" 1971 comes to mind right away. Checked Official Trailer for anachronisms; scene beginning :26 "Somewhere In L.A. mercury or sodium vapor street light fixtures not common in L.A. suburbs till 1970s, more obvious as they're years or decades later replacements in the movie. The segment did very briefly show rear end of a c.1959-62 vintage GMC model TDH-5301 40-foot transit bus presumably one of Loren Joplin's "Dreamliners" he rents out to movie companies on occasion, apropos though if that scene was meant to be in 1966 should had been in Southern California Rapid Transit District "Chrome Yellow, Saddle Tan & White" livery instead of pre-1964 Los Angeles Metropolitan Transit Authority two-tone green & white.

Jay Leno's Garage - 2017 Ford GT

Post by Editor » Fri Nov 15, 2019 5:54 pm

Here's a related video of the 2017 Ford GT at Jay Leno's Garage. This car won Le Mans in 2016, exactly 50 years after Ford won its first Le Mans in 1966. It's a great video, after watching it you're gonna want to buy one, if you do lets us know and post some pics :esmile:

I've seen a blue + orange 2005 Ford GT in Calgary and a red one with white trim. Red and white is very striking but if I had to choose I would go with the 1966 racing colors of blue + orange. You'll need about $350k-$500k to get one, exotics hold their value and you won't ever find one with more than 20,000 km :think:
