    Mine is one of the ones that moves from a roll. I generally don't mess with bikes anymore because of the speeds reached. I have beaten more than my fair share of 1100cc bikes but I'm getting too old to think that those 180 MPH banzais next to a crotch rocket are fun. When you blow by a car that is going freeway speeds and you're going too fast to tell what kind it is then you reflect on that later and realize how stupid it was. I will race a bike if it can be done on a closed course. I'm not above a short burst with a Ford GT or any other car from a stand still. I almost always get beaten off the line because I try to save my clutch, but after 60-mph I murder them badly.

    Looks like Reliable will be making a trip to the Ford Championship at Doral next month.

    02/02 1:35P (DJ) PRESS RELEASE: Ford Sweetens the Stakes: Winner of Ford
    Championship at Doral To Drive Off in GT Supercar
    Story 5707 (F, I/AUT, I/XDJGI, I/XFFX, I/XSP5, N/DJN, N/DJWR, N/CNW...)
    * Ford adds a 2005 Ford GT to the winner's prize package at the Ford
    Championship at Doral March 4-7.
    * America's Supercar(SM) becomes the most valuable automobile prize in
    the history of the PGA TOUR.

    MIAMI, Feb. 2 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- When his last putt drops in the cup
    at the Ford Championship at Doral next month, the winner will claim not only a
    share of the $5 million in tournament prize money but also the keys to one of
    the hottest properties in the automobile world -- America's Supercar(SM), the
    2005 Ford GT.
    Ford announced today that the winner's prize package at Doral will now
    include the all-new Ford GT, a car that will be the most exclusive Ford
    product ever. Priced just under $140,000, the Ford GT supercar will be the
    most valuable automobile prize in the history of the PGA TOUR.
    But the sticker price does not fully reflect the exclusivity of the Ford
    GT. Demand for the new supercar is expected to far outpace this year's build
    that will be limited to several hundred units.
    "Winning the tournament is the only sure way to get a new Ford GT," said
    Ford Division President Steve Lyons. "We can't possibly satisfy the demand
    for this car in the first year of a short two model year run. So it's not
    just that we've added a $140,000 car to the prize winnings -- we've added a
    car that will be almost impossible for most people to buy."
    The supercar's unique desirability was underscored last summer at the
    Christie's Auction of Exceptional Motor Cars at Pebble Beach (Calif.), where
    one of the first production Ford GTs was sold for $500,000 plus auction fees,
    with net proceeds going to charity.
    "A prize of the magnitude of the Ford GT supercar is unprecedented on the
    PGA TOUR and helps bring even higher levels of attention to a tournament that
    is already a very popular event with the players," said Tom Neville,
    tournament director, Ford Championship at Doral.

    My company does work with Saleen and I have been to the factory many times, they are being hand built on a small assembly line.

    I was in the plant a few weeks ago and they had two of them ready for the CRASH TEST....Two new GT's and they were going out to be wrecked what a shame.

    Camilo Pardo is the designer that worked on the car he is a great and facinating guy. I had a chance to go to dinner with him last year, he is also an extremely talented artist.

    And the best part he's a boater he owns a vintage DONZI .

    Dealer MSRP is $150k, but show me a dealer who isn't going to tack on "Added Value Fee" to that...(remember when the new T-Birds (ugh) were selling for $80k (msrp $40k)?...Can't give 'em away now...soon to be discontinued.)

    CAV makes a very nice replica (stainless welded tube/monocoque chassis, A/C, 302 Ford V8, kevlar body) which can be had for around $70k+. It's probably a little rougher around the edges than the new Ford GT, but by not having to fork over an extra $100k+, I'll live with it.

    Here's one I've been considering (at $65k):

    In defense of dealers and myself not all of us use AMV (additional market value) stickers. I have yet to sell a tbird or a 350Z with one, and don't plan to use them on anything in the future. I don't personally think they are a good idea because of the image they project, but MSRP is SUGGESTED retail price and a dealer is entitled to sell a vehicle for what the market will bring. Just my .02

    Holman & Moody built some of the original cars here in the Charlotte area. I believe Lee Holman is still building
    cars on order from the original tooling
