The Ford GT40 - A History In Competition

WESTLAND, Mich.,––The Ford GT40 is one of the world's greatest super cars, but many may not understand that its origins lie in competition, specifically against Ferrari. In honor of "throwback thursday" and the spring-like weather that's making us yearn for the open road, we're going to cover the Ford GT40's rich history. So, start your engines and let's begin!

The Ford GT40 - A History In Competition

In 1960, Henry Ford II was determined to have a Ford car compete in the prestigious Le Mans race where experienced racing giants had stood victorious. During this time, Enzo Ferrari had become interested in selling his company. Henry Ford II saw the opportunity to take a lead in the racing world, specifically in the 24 Hour Le Mans race, with Ferrari's experience as a platform.

Henry Ford II went about seizing the opportunity to buy Ferrari spending massive amounts of money to audit Ferrari's assets and in legal expenses. In 1963, Ford and his large team of legal assistants and executives flew to Italy to sign and finalize the sale. Enzo Ferrari and his assistant were not only the only two from the Ferrari empire to be there, but they were late to the meeting as well. Upon reading Ford Motor Company's documents in silence, Enzo pointed out a specific part of the text that specified Ford would also be taking the racing portion of Ferrari.

It was then Enzo Ferrari said a terrible "no", refused the sale, and lit a 5-alarm fire under Henry Ford II. After all the honest work Ford went through to obtain Ferrari and its racing technologies, the deal fell completely flat in an instant, rightfully enraging Ford. This new rivalry was said to have changed racing forever.

Ford set out as an underdog to beat the then 4-time Le Mans victor, Ferrari, and develop their own super car. 

Ford started by negotiating with Lola Cars, which ended up with a two-year collaboration and two Mk6 chassis sale agreement. The original MK1 and GT40 were prepared at the Ford Advanced Vehicles in the UK, where a team of various expertise in racing culminated. Even with Ford pouring resources and innovation into racing development, the first six Ford GT40 versions went to the 1964 Le Mans and failed completely; none of the first six versions even made it across the finish line. They went again to the 1965 Le Mans race and yet again had no cars make it across the finish line.

In 1966, all three Ford GT40's that had entered the race swept the top of the competition and took home 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place at Le Mans. Ford then took first place at Le Mans in 1967, 1968, and 1969 with their continually improved GT40 cars. After many years of success, Ford stopped production of the GT in 2006. In 2016 Ford announced the Ford GT would be making a comeback and production began. See the inspiring video below and don't forget your tissues.




This blog was directly inspired by James May's emotionally powered and informative segment in the sixth episode of the premier Grand Tour show, available on Amazon Prime. We're so excited to see the Ford GT compete in this year's Le Mans race happening June 17th & 18th. The next time you can see the Ford GT on the track will be March 15th-18th at the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring in Florida. You can see the full 2017 Ford GT racing schedule online!

Health Tips for Flu Season

WESTLAND, Mich.,–– If you've noticed more coughing around you at work, or that more and more people aren't showing up to work, school, or social events, you're not crazy. The flu is hitting Michigan, and the United States as a whole, hard right now. Most of us lead busy lives with work, family, and everything else, and simply don't have time to get sick. Not to mention, the flu is terrible! No one wants to feel awful, so we've got some health tips for flu season that'll help get you out alive and well.

Health Tips for Flu Season


1. Wash Your Hands & Pay Attention to What You Touch

It's flu season which means now is the time to bring yourself back to your kindergarten roots! Make sure to wash your hands through the entire birthday song or alphabet song with soap and warm water to rid of germs. It's also good to pay attention to what items you touch throughout the day. If you're touching "high-traffic" items such as the drinking fountain at work, the bathroom door handle, someone else's keyboard, avoid touching your mouth, nose, and eyes as these areas are gateways to your immune system.


2. Eat Healthy!

It's fine to indulge in a burger or some decadent dessert here and there, but it's more beneficial to eat foods that will benefit your immune system regularly! Eating healthy doesn't mean you need to eat a salad at every meal, but you can aim to eat less processed food and hit the major food groups within your meals, i.e. fruits and vegetables alongside nutritious proteins like poultry, legumes, etc. Don't be afraid to work up some soup recipes if you're feeling down. Broth and veggies together can help comfort a sore throat or aching stomach and are healthy, too!


3. Consume More H2O

Although simple, this health tip is used often for many reasons. Water not only keeps you hydrated should you already be sick and need to replace fluids in your body, but it also helps you flush some of the bad stuff out if you're harboring any flu germs. Water overall helps your body function optimally to help you get over a flu or prevent it. The recommendation is to drink half your body weight in ounces of water, but simply having a few extra glasses than you normally do should help!


4. Get Active

Exercise is another factor that can help boost your immune system. It can be a simple walk outside or an extra sweaty cardio session at the gym OR you can work on training for our 5K Fun Run happening in May! Whatever method you choose, make sure you're getting your heart rate up and are breathing heavier than normal. Cardiovascular exercise can help excavate bacteria out of you lungs and airways. Plus, the feel-good endorphins you get when working out can make you feel happy during the gray winter days. If you do go to the gym, just make sure to wipe down your machines before using to avoid picking something up.


5. Stay Home

Even if you're a person who's overwhelmed at work and think staying home will only hurt your schedule, don't come in if you have the flu! If you feel like you're getting sick, or are already sick, take caution and protect others around you. There's no sense in you exhausting your energy or spreading your illness onto others. Take time to rest at home with some water, vitamins, and honest rest.


6. Get More Sleep

Again, this is a simple health rule but extra sleep when your immune system is compromised is crucial! Make sure you're getting 8 hours of good solid sleep each night, and more if you're feeling extra sick. If it helps put you to rest, take some cold medicine before you conk out to ensure your body is fighting the sickness while you sleep. Getting more rest allows your body to fight off any flu germs and revive itself so you can do what you need to the next day. 



We hope these health tips for flu season have you feeling better in no time! It's our goal to help your car feel better in no time when it's feeling down in the dumps. We're here to help with any routine maintenance like oil changes, tire rotations, and brake inspections, along with bigger tasks like transmission repairs, belt replacements, etc. You can conveniently schedule your service appointment check in time online, or by giving us a call! Alternatively if you're looking to upgrade to a more "healthy" vehicle, we can help with that too.
