Basically, this.

So, storytime, folks -

Yesterday, after a haircut, I decided to meet up with the long-suffering girlfriend and go for a run southbound to Mornington, a small beachside town below Melbourne, Australia. Lovely place.

As we were walking down Main Street, I heard a distinct V8 rumble and turned, to see what - I swear to God - was an original Ford GT40, or a damn convincing replica of one.

It was painted in Gulf livery, with that very distinct straight-piped V8 noise. Taillight pattern was identical to the original, so it wasn’t a more recent GT. I would have gotten a picture, but I wasn’t close enough by the time it had moved off.


Anyone know if any GT40s made their way to Australia? Or was what I saw just a very well-produced replica?
