Thirty years ago, nobody at Ford bothered to register the GT40 trademark. But the automaker shouldn't have to pay much for it now.
That was the consensus of more than 50 percent of the folks who took part in the 14-day Automotive News online poll.
Ford said the $100,000-plus supercar will be badged the 'GT' when it goes on sale, likely in late 2003. Safir GT40 Spares, the Ohio company that owns the 'GT40' name, made an offer to Ford that was just too pricey for the cost-conscious automaker.
How much is too much?
How much should Ford Motor Co. spend to gain the rights to the GT40 name?

My first car was a 67 Mustang Coupe, 2nd one was a 67 Cougar XR-7, 3rd one was a 66 Mustang Coupe. Why did I get rid of these cars for ? I know why, because I'm stupid, stupid, stupid.
My next Ford.....
