Jalopnik has some great content but the site redesign makes no sense to me.

I'm so glad the Ford GT is on that list, wish it was a little higher though. If you know the back story of that car and why it was built. As an american, it'll make you smile every time.

Nothing needs to be said... We're bad ass.
***EDIT***
My 97 camry resents the 86-96 best camry years comment they made. It is how ever the most comfortable car I own.

Had a 94 Camry V6 in a rare sky-blue metallic colour.
Charcoal leather interior, moonroof.
The thing could move if you prodded it - the V6 was enough torque to get a 17 year old male in trouble.

Suspension was made of marshmellows and cotton puffs, however - twisties were white-knuckle experiences (for the wrong reasons)

Oh holy crap... I didn't even know that car existed. I've been in loooove with the GT40 since I was a little kid. In 04 - 06 I had my head down / nose to the grind stone rebuilding from a start up company liquidation, wasn't paying much attention to things like this... What a beautiful car!

<looks up wiki, sees msrp> ah, no wonder I've never seen one, lol.

My local Ford dealer had one in the showroom when they were new, it is just stunning in person. Sadly MomHawk wouldn't let me trade in the house to buy one.

@Ralph Spoilsport yeah they seem to be a bit of a hassle to own too. I think it was Jeremy Clarkson who got one and had it constantly breaking down on him, also realizing it was too large and impractical to own in the UK.

It was Jeremy Clarkson as documented here.

He was also wrote about being too tall to test drive the original GT40.
