For the tldr crowd, man takes new 2016 GT 350 to track for track day. Engine catches on fire due to component failure. Ford buys car back and presents owner with a brand new 2017 GT 350R. Fucking good job Ford! I've been following this car for some time. The 66 GT 350 holds a special place in my heart as many of you know (since I own one) and this new beast with it's high-revving flat crank v8 is music to my ears. I've been debating for weeks of actually selling my baby and buying a 350R to throw around the track since Mosport Park is only about 30 minutes from my place and hosts open track days all summer.

I've been hooked on JLG for years now. You can literally lose a full day watching his videos if you're into cars.
