For a company that's hurting financially, they sure don't skimp on pet projects.

It looks like there is a nice bit of sound protection between the driver and the engine compartment, but damn.

I like it actually. Not that I'd buy it, but I like it.

Watching a company get the **** beat out of them by Japanese automakers. Which means they are losing profits. They dump $$$$$$$$ into this piece of crap!!

Does it run? Does it drive? Does it do either of these well?
What the hell kind of Community College is this anyway? Where the jehosephat did they get all this cash? Balderdash, I say....

I think they could have come up with something better than GT-R.

Washtenaw CC is supposed to have a pretty good auto program. The school does pretty well financially. Tax milages come up all the time to fund stuff over there. Very wealthy county with really high taxes. I'm not sure how much Ford kicked towards this project.

Looks decent but I'd hate to drive it without earplugs.
