    Ford vs. Ferrari film set for Nov. 15, 2019: VARIETY liked the preview

    Apparently VARIETY liked the prview, writing this yesterday:" CREDIT: SHUTTERSTOCK "Perhaps newly-minted Disney employee and Fox Film vice chairman Emma Watts said it best herself: movies like the studio’s “Ford v. Ferrari” are “an endangered species.” Lucky, then, that Disney inherited the...

One location I heard was Agua Dulce airport, I suppose they have a hanger there of same vintage as Shelby had when they were at the LAX airport. Haven't seen any casting calls for...

    Hello from Savannah, GA.

    If you are GT40 fan, you are in the right place, not only forum wise but I believe Ford vs. Ferrari is being filmed there near your town off and on and there is a general casting call for extras to be in the crowd scenes. Don't know name of casting agency but if you noodle around you will find...

    Will Hollywood do the GT40 story right?

    "Ford vs. Ferrari" is longer based on AJ Baime book. 20th Century Fox resold that book to a TV company who are making a series on the same subject. 20th says they are basing their feature on "other sources." My own private theory is that the contract with Baime asked for something they no...

    Will Hollywood do the GT40 story right?

    If we don't, collectively, rag on them as they proceed it could be a replay of what happened with that movie about the capturing of the enigma code machine from the Germans during WWII. As Ray Moseley explained it in the Chicago Tribuune March 4, 1999: "The trouble with the story is that...

    Will Hollywood do the GT40 story right?

    For those who are going to be following this film until it is completed and released in June, 2019 (and if you keep an ear to the ground, maybe you can be an extra depending on where they film next) here is most of the cast list as of 9/9/18 from a source called Int. Movie Data Base. edited to...

    A PROGRESS REPORT: FORD VS.FERRARI WILL A HIT MOVIE ABOUT CARROLL SHELBY INCREASE INTEREST IN GT40s? by Wallace Wyss – I’m hoping. Hollywood is not only talking about a GT40 film this time but actually lensing it as we speak. I already heard of one of the lead actors being trained to drive at...

    Red Alan Mann GT40 in San Fernando Valley decades ago

    I one time saw a collection of at least ten cars in the San Fernando valley and think one red GT40 was described as an "Alan Mann lightweight." It had two ribs on the cocker panel area and was RHD. This was at least two decades ago, before the Safirs and other replicas. The owner sold Ford speed...

    Was it ever revealed circumstancs why Pardo left Ford?

    I thought, after 24 years he just retired early but then looking on Google, I discovered all these old stories that sound like he was pushed toward the door. The only reason I could think of is that one headline calls him a "rock star" so maybe the VP of Design resented the outsize publicity he...

    GT/104 to cross the block at Mecum Houston (Apr 2014)

    I haven't been to their museum but I went to a show where they had the Gerber heir Cobra. They do a nice job of preparing cars and also have their own racetrack they promote events at. I think they would be a good spot for a Shelby museum in addition to the one in Colorado.

    Wallace Wyss Thread

    In some of the articles on the net it has splendid revealing pictures of the former fireman Dennis Murdoch's yellow GT40 Mk. I with the Mk.

    Hoping you discuss -05-'06 Ford GTs here

    If you do, here's my question. I knew of the three "anniversary" Ford GTs built for 2003 100 year anniversary of Ford, one of them said to be for Edsel Ford II. But then recently I read a newspaper article where it said a man who likes to callhimself GT Joey had bought a prototype Ford GT under...

    GT/104 to cross the block at Mecum Houston (Apr 2014)

    What did Lonberger pay for it? Didn't he buy it directly from Ford? I know he was debating buying a 427 Cobra at near the same price (maybe $20,000 in the early '70s). At that time Ford was practically giving them away, they sold one GT40 for one dollar! Finally has it ever been printed what...
