A SAFIR is as real as you want it to be and as real as a real car is. Personally, that is the only car I dream about owning. I would not want a real GT now based on the value. I would be a afraid to drive it, or afraid some idiot would steal it. SAFIR has alwasy been my dream.
1098 is featured in a Automobile Magazine article reprinted in the Ford GT40 Gold Portfolio book if you have it. Lamont is quoted and discusses the build of this car. How fortunate you are to now own such a signifcant piece of history.
