2017 Ford GT Welcome Guide: My Purchase Approaches…

2017 Ford GT US Welcome Guide
The new Ford GT Welcome Guide opens with a dramatic image

After getting allocated a new 2017 Ford GT last July, I (along with 999 other folks) have been anxiously awaiting news from the Ford GT Concierge Service. As the initial GT allocation letter indicated, the Ford GT Concierge Service will provide “…a unique client experience from the initial ordering process, through delivery and ownership.” Let’s take a close look through every page of this new Ford GT Welcome Guide that showed up a few days ago.

Get Thee to the Goodwood Revival

2016 Goodwood Revival Ford GT GT40
The old and new Ford GTs looked right at home among the rarified machinery

Last weekend I was fortunate enough to attend the Goodwood Revival in Chichester, England (about an hour south of London). This event takes place on Lord March’s sprawling estate, and if the words “Lord” and “sprawling” paint images of wealth and decadence in your brain, good. You’re getting an idea of what the Goodwood Revival is all about.

2017 Ford GT: Preliminary Vehicle Preferences

Preferences Ford GT

Given how much we’ve focused on the 2005 and 2006 Ford GT so far on this site it seems fitting to start bulking up the 2017 Ford GT information. That’s easier said than done, as much of the 2017 Ford GT’s information remains shrouded in mystery — even its price!

I Get to Buy a 2017 Ford GT!

Ford GT Allocation Letter
2017 Ford GT Allocation Letter

It seems fitting to launch this site with a post about receiving an allocation for a 2017 Ford GT. Ford has only committed to to building approximately 1000 of these unique vehicles over a 4-year production run, with only 600 available in the U.S. Getting approved was not easy, but I had an 11-year/27,000-mile history of being an original 2005 Ford GT owner helping my case for a 2017 Ford GT allocation.

This site will describe my ownership history with my 2005 Ford GT, which really began in January 2002. It will also chronicle my experience of ordering, receiving, owning (…and paying for…) a 2017 Ford GT. I have over a thousand photos and over 100 ownership blog posts from the last 11 years, plus quite a few videos documenting everything I’ve seen and done since Ford unveiled its yellow GT40 concept car at the 2002 Detroit Auto Show. I’ll be posting all of them here over the next few months while also reporting on my impending purchase of a 2017 Ford GT. Read more
