Any excuse to take a drive in the Ford GT is a good one, especially through the roads of the Eifel Mountains surrounding the Nurburgring with plenty of twisty sections to enjoy. With the Ford GT being desperately impractical, in terms of both nowhere to put anything in the tiny cabin, and also being very low and wide, it's far from the ideal car to attempt going through a Drive Thru.
However, it has frequently been pointed out that my Ford GT's colours with the body in Liquid Red and the stripes in bespoke Mann Gold look uncannily like the colours of McDonald's and even ketchup and mustard. As such, it's been inevitable that at some point it would have to make a visit to the Golden Arches. I choose the spec as a tribute to the Alan Mann Racing team with their iconic livery and am still delighted with the choices I made on a car that's a truly special, permanent Shmeemobile.
With the challenges to order in German, avoid the kerbs, keep the BBS FI-R wheels safe, and reach out across a wide sill, there's something less than ideal about this choice. In light hearted spirit, it's certainly a big of fun to match up the colours and use the wing as a picnic table; even if the visit is very GRpostr cliche.
It has to be said though, every time I drive the GT I'm reminder how special it is, and after putting in a few laps on the Ring, pushing on down the Autobahn, and a day at the Hockenheimring, it's been absolutely amazing to get it back out and about again.
Thanks for watching, Tim
