It’s not a good day when your mechanic calls and says, “Uh, I’m not sure how to say this, but I had a little accident with your car.” It’s even worse when your car is a 2006 Ford GT Heritage that had been modified to a “Twin Turbo.” (On the Internet, some claim the value of cars like this can exceed $250,000.)
This Ford GT had some running problems that were threatening the owner’s participation in an upcoming Ford GT rally. The owner turned to a tuner who was a mainstay on the Ford GT Forum and goes by the Internet alias “Shadowman.”
According to Shadowman’s own post on the Ford GT Forum (fordgt.forum.com), he secured the owner’s registration, insurance information and a written authorization to test drive the car for diagnosis.
