    Interview of James Mangold, directr of Ford v. Ferrari (LeMans '66) on You Tube

    the most interesting thing he said is tha an early cut was 3 1/2 hours long and the intervewer was begging that the longrt version be releases maybe on Blue Ray but Mangold says he has argued with himself, and concluded that maybe it's better that the as-released version be the only one

    Series of paintings imagined scenes from the upcoming feature about LeMans

    Only two done so far, one of the lead character playing Shelby in front of a '66 Mk. II the other of Enzo Ferrari in the pits behind a Ferrari prototype. Haven't seen the movie yet so don't know if they will show Enzo at LeMans; my understanding is that he didn't venture to races outside...

    Sadly I have heard Corvette fans also blur this line and say "We won at LeMans."

    At last a car guy reviews Ford v. Ferrari, a Motor Trend editor

    I never did figure out how his Cobra race car was allowed to have Rose jointed suspension unlike the production cars. He always wanted that edge. Though he was roughly 40 when he raced for Shelby he was always going shirtless on the pits and exercising and making others look lazy in the...

    While the new film Ford v. Ferrari opens nationwide Nov. 15th, they are going to have the premiere in Los Angeles Nov. 4th. I was lucky enough to stumble across the announcement on the net but not smart enough to get on the invite list. Anybody that has two extra tickets to the premiere, contact...

    At last a car guy reviews Ford v. Ferrari, a Motor Trend editor

    He points out a lot of factual errors (doesn't mention that in the Shelby demonstrating a GT40 to HFII that they have them in a coupe when it was a roadster) but then goes on to praise the drama and spectacle, so i'd say he gave it a B plus. we will read more car guys reviews after the Los...

    NEW MOVIE TRAILER

    In regards to the movie being based on the book Go Like Hell, as was announced back in 2013 in papers like the Daily Mail (when Tom Cruise wanted to play Shelby) and I quote the some of that story from the Daily Mail. I wonder if the contract had something 20th didn't like, that they didn't...
