    Clearances like that are not unusual though. A lot of Porsches are like that.

    I went on Sunday morning and it was definitely there, parked directly inside the South Hall main entrance between the heritage blue/orange GT and the green Mustang Bullitt and facing towards Toyota’s exhibit space.

    There is a metallic coating on the inside of the wheel barrel. I suspect it's there for heat management as well as protection from aforementioned pebbles.

    The bastards! I waited in line until the show opened. Even had to listen to fat-ass Pritzker and rush in to see nothing. I even asked one of the Ford reps there if they had the GT500 and he said no. They must have had it in the back from the charity event and put it back out Saturday night. A $13 waste. Now I have to go back and see it this weekend. 20190209_101237_resized.jpg 20190209_101254_resized.jpg 20190209_101335_resized.jpg 20190209_101418_resized.jpg

    They couldn't extend the stripes all the way to the edges? Small detail yes, but bothersome nonetheless.

    That wheel caliper clearance is a nightmare waiting to happen. As we all know, those wheels are not going to be cheap to replace or repair.

    Ceramic, not a metallic coating. It isn't there for debris but rather for heat. It gouges and chips fairly easily but does a great job managing extreme heat from the brakes.
