TTAC Rewind: 2004 Ford GT Review

Take a gander at Robert Farago's 2004 Ford GT review over your morning coffee. If you're anything like me, you will be jealous.

I've been at this automotive-media thing, in one form or another, since late 2007 and I have yet to drive a Ford GT of any generation. So you better believe I sat up and took notice when I saw this one in the archives.

Give it a gander and keep in mind that the Ford GT is slated to soon join the great junkyard in the sky.

See you Monday.

Tim Healey grew up around the auto-parts business and has always had a love for cars — his parents joke his first word was “‘Vette”. Despite this, he wanted to pursue a career in sports writing but he ended up falling semi-accidentally into the automotive-journalism industry, first at Consumer Guide Automotive and later at He also worked as an industry analyst at Mintel Group and freelanced for, CarFax,, High Gear Media, Torque News,,, among others, and of course Vertical Scope sites such as,, and He’s an urbanite and as such, doesn’t need a daily driver, but if he had one, it would be compact, sporty, and have a manual transmission.

    I saw one on the road this past summer. Hearing one flat out on the road really is different from seeing one on video.

    You can count me in as one of the “jealous” beautiful car

    This and the 1990s NSX are the only supercars that even remotely seemed attainable, though looking back, $150k for the GT isn't at all attainable. Now that prices are upward of $500k, these are firmly out of reach for all but the most well to do.

    You want an example of how our avocation has changed in 20 years? These were having birthdays in dealer stock and getting flooring assistance as well as enlarged ad support. You could have purchased a 2004 for several thousand back of published invoice. Fast forward and we know what they bring today. I'm sorry, but I preferred being thought of as stupid for my automotive obsession. Now, everyone with a license is looking at buying an "interesting" driver. Most cannot change the oil, let alone air their tires. get off my lawn, too.
