    Just to clarify on the Ford Plants. There was Wayne Assembly plant that made the old generation Focus. Michigan Assembly Plant is next door. MAP is where the current Focus/C-Max are made right now. MAP used to be Michigan Truck Plant and is where the Expedition/Navigator were assembled before moving to Kentucky Truck Plant. So if they put the Ranger/Bronco into MAP they will have to convert it back for body on frame assembly.

    Additionally,
    I agree the 2005 GT is one of the most beautiful cars of all time.

    Regarding the open cockpit design, what about taking a look at Top Fuel Dragsters? Those are open air cockpits, but have the windshield coming up higher as a roll cage. Those things run 300+ MPH.

    Congrats on 300! I rewatched some of the older episodes, including the one about Tesla and CARB scamming with 10-minute battery replacements. It turns-out hydrogen cars are also a scam, because I’m leasing one and it takes almost 20 minutes to refuel! (It’s supposed to be <15 by California requirements.)

    So in other words Mercedes, Honda, and Toyota are collecting ZEV "fast fueling" credits they shouldn't have. It's ALL a scam! ;-) :-D
