I don't know how you did it but you got me to pick a Ford over a Ferrari or a Porsche.

Without 1st driving the RS60 I would have to go Ferrari GTO. Always loved the look of the RS60 & think it is the closest look to a 986 as any Porsche. Have a pretty good idea how the GTO will ride & drive & if the RS60 is close or better I would choose it.

Without hesitation, the 250 GTO. As much as I like the RS 60, that is one of the best and most exclusive Ferrari's ever built. Always been my all time favorite.

I like the commercial from the auction house for the GT40.

The Ferrari is a lovely car but I'd rather take this for a few laps at Sebring.

The Ford is all the cash I have on hand so I had to choose it! I see I am not alone either...
