Saw "Ford V. Ferrari" last night.

Really enjoyed it!

Even if you are not a motorsports fan, there is a lot to like in this film.

It's a great drama, with a lot of moments of fun as well.

Matt Damon and Christian Bale are both fantastic, and the supporting cast is really strong.

I'd be really curious to find out how accurate the portrayals of Henry Ford II and Lee Iacoccoa are.

The sequence about Ford's attempt to buy Ferrari was great.

The race sequences are heart-pounding fun with just the right amount of terror thrown in.

My husband, who has experience racing, said there were some inaccuracies in some of the driving, but overall said he really enjoyed it, but still thought Ron Howard's "Rush" was better.

Definitely worth seeing!!!!

2. I've seen the documentary, "The 24 Hour War"

It is about this subject and it is very good.

3. It was quite a feat for a major auto company that builds passenger...

vehicles to gear up so quickly and beat a racing/sports car specialist brand at it's own game.

Wonder if any or the original cars are still in existence? They must be worth a fortune.

4. Yes, they are still around. And yes, they require the Walmart fortune to buy.

5. GT40's are actually still being built and are dirt cheap

...If you compare them to Lamborghinis. Like ONLY $170K...for that money you get a Ford licensed hand-built original with an authentic GT40 VIN.
