Taken at face value, GTs, currently selling for over twice their original retail price, are an easy way to bank a hard asset. But focusing on simple financials doesn't really do these classics justice. See, the collector car market is built around passion and the feelings certain cars inspire. And often the most visceral and exclusive machines bring the biggest money. The Ford GT is certainly a visceral experience, but this incredible GTX1 takes things to a whole new level! Not only is the car an ultra-exclusive variant of a highly exclusive halo marque, it also uses choice modifications to enhance an already thrilling driving experience. Want an investment that performs in more ways than one? We recommend this formidable Ford! PUTTING THE GTX1 IN THE GT You might be asking yourself “What exactly is a Ford GTX1?” Well, simply put, it's a more intense Ford GT that's been custom-tailored with an array of world class upgrades. The car was actually designed by Ford's own Kip Ewing, one of the primary engineers behind the original Ford GT, the Shelby GT500 and the second-generation Ford GT. After debuting a concept at the 2005 SEMA Show, Ford's Special Vehicle Team, now known as Ford Performance, saw fit to put the design in to limited production. So, the team promptly commissioned 500 cars through pro coachbuilders Genaddi Design Group. However, as often happens with highly specialized cars, production was cut short. And after building less than 100 GTX1s, with each upfit costing roughly $200K, the program was unceremoniously discontinued. Simple supply and demand dictates that abbreviated production is always a boon for collectors, and GTX1s were guaranteed collectibles from the word “go”. That said, the goal of the program was to provide owners with a car that truly enhanced an already amazing driving experience. So, in addition to being included in the NADA Guide, and listed with the Shelby American Automobile Club, GTX1s feature unique aesthetics that aid performance. Recently serviced by The GT Garage, GTX1 number 13 is led by HID headlights, a factory splitter and standard halogen fog lamps. That “Ford” branded nose points a lightweight, all-aluminum body, which hangs painted Midnight Blue stripes at the sides of roll-bonded floors. Between those stripes, body-matched mirrors reflect sequential Genaddi badging and a 3-piece, removable top that caps a removable rear window. Behind that targa, a lightweight clamshell hood provides convenient access to the car's reinforced engine bay. And that LED-tinged bonnet shades prominent splitters that, in the absence of a factory rear bumper, contrast well to the car's clean Centennial White 2-stage. FEEL THE POWER At the beginning of this piece we talked about the passion certain classics inspire, and how every great collector car is rooted in those feelings. Not only was the GTX1 born from that mindset, it defines the sentiment. Even compared to the other GTs we've featured in our inventory, this spyder is incredibly carnal. For sure, the car's 550 horsepower certainly provides big personality, but the carefully accentuated sound and pull of its 5.4 liter mod motor is really something special. Specifically created for the GT program, that burly V8 is founded on a unique aluminum block that's been optimized with a careful computer tune, dry-sump lubrication and a trick Accufab dual-blade throttle body. A forged rotating assembly plays well with four GT-specific cams and reengineered heads that were borrowed from SVT's awesome Mustang Cobra R. And all that proven hardware spins under a Lysholm twin-screw supercharger that's paired with a reduced-diameter pulley. 500 lb./ft. of torque flows through a Ricardo 6-speed transaxle, which powers a helical limited-slip differential. That drivetrain rides a fully independent suspension, which, complete with early-build billet control arms, is married to a sturdy, superplastic-formed frame. Turns come courtesy of power rack-and-pinion steering. Stops come courtesy of cross-drilled discs and power-assisted calipers, which make excellent use of electronic brake distribution and standard anti-lock technology. The raucous engine roars through Accufab's performance X-pipe exhaust. And all that track-ready prowess grips through handsome 5-spoke alloys, which twist 235/45ZR18 Goodyear Eagle F1s in front of 315/40ZR19 Goodyear Eagle F1s. OPEN-AIR COMFORT Part of the appeal of modern supercars is, unlike their charmingly raw predecessors, they're engineered as the total package. As cars like the storied GT40 have been distilled from purpose-built track champions into white-collar status symbols, luxury has become a crucial part of the equation. Step over this Ford's custom sill plates and you'll find fitted buckets that stretch tight leather around bright silver grommets. In front of those seats, an Azdel Superlite Composite dash seats precise telemetry above optional McIntosh audio. At the bottom of that dash, a magnesium console plants a short shifter in front of a custom subwoofer enclosure. Beneath that console, clean floors float GTX1-themed mats beneath metal foot pedals. Fade-free door panels found keyless power door locks beneath factory power windows and requisite power mirrors. And the driver spins a leather-wrapped, “FORD GT” branded steering wheel around a tilting and telescoping column. Highly desirable and extremely potent, this unique Ford is a no-compromises exercise in world-class driving. Luxurious where it matters, with serious performance underneath, it's the perfect way to have virtually limitless fun in one of the market's hottest collectibles. If you're looking for an excellent combination of speed, equity and exclusivity, you're looking at your next classic! ---------- HIGHLIGHTS * Genaddi GTX1 number 13 * Listed with the Shelby American Automobile Club Registry * 5.4 liter supercharged V8 / 550 horsepower * Ricardo 6-speed manual transaxle / Helical limited-slip differential * Factory air conditioning * Power rack-and-pinion steering * 4-wheel power disc brakes * Removable 3-piece top / Removable rear window * Black leather interior / Optional McIntosh audio * Accufab performance X-pipe exhaust * Centennial White paint / Painted Midnight Blue stripes * The GT Garage upgrade and service record * All RK Motors vehicles receive a comprehensive, multi-point inspection * We can ship your new classic anywhere in the world CALL: (704) 445-9105 EMAIL US * For 120 months at 6.25% APR at $4,401 per month per thousand financed.

  4. https://www.anchorbar.com/history On March 4th, 1964, Dominic Bellissimo was tending bar at the now-famous Anchor Bar Restaurant in Buffalo, NY. Late that evening, a group of Dominic’s friends arrived at the bar with ravenous appetites. Dominic asked his mother, Teressa, to prepare something for his friends to eat. They looked like chicken wings, a part of the chicken that usually went into the stock pot for soup. Teressa had deep fried the wings and flavored them with a secret sauce. The wings were an instant hit and it didn’t take long for people to flock to the bar to experience their new taste sensation. From that evening on, Buffalo Wings became a regular part of the menu at the Anchor Bar. The phenomenon created in 1964 by Teressa Bellissimo has spread across the globe. Although many have tried to duplicate the Buffalo wing, the closely guarded secret recipe is what makes Frank & Teressa’s the proclaimed “Best Wings in the World”.

  6. Along the forest road there's hundreds of cars, luxury cars Each has got its load of convertible bars, cutlery cars, super scars For today is the day when they sort it out, sort it out 'Cause they disagree on a gangland boundary They disagree on a gangland boundary There's Willy Wright and his boys, one helluva noise That's @Billybob's boys with fully-fashioned mugs That's little John's thugs, the Barking slugs, super smugs For today is the day when they sort it out, sort it out Yes, these Christian soldiers fight to protect the poor East end heroes got to score in the battle of Epping forest Yes, it's the battle of Epping forest right outside your door And you ain't seen nothing like it No, you ain't seen nothing like it Not since the civil war Comin' over the hill are the boys of Bill And @John j's lads stand very still With the thumpires shout, they all start to clout There's no guns in this gentleman's bout And Georgie moves in on the outside left With a chain flying round his head And Harold Demure, from art literature Nips up the nearest tree, here come the cavalry Amidst the battle roar, accountants keep the score, 10-4 They've never been alone, after getting a radiophone The bluebells are ringing for sweet meal Sam, real ham Handin' out bread and jam just like any picnic, picnic, picnic, picnic It's 5 to 4 on William Wright, he made his pile on derby night When @Billybobs was a kid walking the streets, the other kids hid, so they did And now after workin' hard in security trade, he's got it made The shops that need aid are those that haven't paid "I do my double-show quick" Said Mick the prick, fresh out the Nick "I sold cheap holiday, the minute they leave Then a visit I pay an' does it pay" His friend, @fullrange by name, of wine, women and Wandsworth fame Said, "I'm breaking the legs of the bastard that got me framed" I'm breaking the legs of the bastard that got me framed, got me framed They called me the reverend when I entered the church unstained My employers have changed but the name has remained All began when I went on a tour, hoping to find some furniture I followed a sign, it said, 'Beautiful Chest" It led to a lady who showed me her best She was taken by surprise when I quickly closed my eyes So she rang the bell, and quick as hell @billyBob the nob, came out on his job to see what the trouble was "Louise, is the reverend hard to please? " "You're telling me!" "Perhaps, sir, if its not too late We could interest you in our old-fashioned Staffirdshire? " "Oh no, not me, I'm a man of repute" But the @dirtmudd caught hold of my soul and a voice called out "Shoot!" To save my steeple, I visited people For this I'd gone when I met little Johnj His name came, I understood When the judge said, "You're a robbing hood" He told me of his strange foundation Conceived on sight of the Woodstock nation He'd had to hide his reputation When poor, 'twas salvation from door to door But now, with a pin-up guru every week It was love, peace and truth incorporated for all who seek He employed me as a karma-ma-mechanic, with overall charms His hands were then fit to receive, receive alms That's why we're in the battle of Epping forest Yes, it's the battle of Epping forest Right outside your door We guard your souls for peanuts And we guard your shops and houses For just a little more, just a little more In with a left hook is the bethnal green butcher But hes countered on the right by @oldtimer chain-gang fight And Liquid Len, with his smashed bottle men Is lobbing @billyBob the nob across the gob With his kisser in a mess, Bob seems under stress But Jones the jug hits Len right in the mug And Harold Demure, who's still not quite sure Fires acorns from out of his sling, here come the cavalry Up, up above the crowd Inside their silver cloud, done proud The bold and brazen brass, seen darkly through the glass The butlers got jam on his rolls, Roy Doles out the lot With tea from a silver pot just like any picnic, picnic, picnic, picnic Along the forest road, its the end of the day And the clouds roll away Each has got its load, they'll come out for the count At the breakin' of day When the limos return for their final review, it's all through All they can see is the morning goo "There's no one left alive, must be a draw" So the black cap barons toss a coin to settle the score
