A consistently rich and diverse collection of cars show up to my local Cars and Coffee every week in Aliso Viejo. If there’s one problem with Cars and Coffee it’s that I don’t go very often (I’m not a morning person by nature). But I’ve taken the Ford GT over a few times in the past 6 months, and it’s always drawn a solid crowd of admirers.
On this particular day the temperature was cool (by California standards) and the air was foggy. A beautiful Cobra reproduction was there when I arrived, so I parked the Ford GT next to it (even though I usually park on the end where I can open the driver’s door wide). The Cobra’s owner asked me a lot of questions about the Ford GT, especially how it’s holding up after 10 years. I was happy to report on the car’s reliability and near-trouble-free nature — repeated gauge failure notwithstanding.
