Shmee150 Encounters Issues With His Ford GT: Video

YouTuber Shmee150 – AKA Tim Burton – has been touring the U.S. with his Ford GT and Ford Mustang Dark Horse, and his latest stop took him to Denver, Colorado on his way visit the Shelby American Collection just a short ways away in Boulder. Unfortunately, bad luck got the better of him and his sports car on the way to the Mile High city, and he has to make a short detour to a Ford store to get some marginal damage addressed.

Cracked windshields aren’t uncommon for Colorado drivers, and Burton found that out the hard way. A rock nailed his Ford GT right on the driver’s side of the windshield, making a small bullseye before abruptly branching to a much more dramatic crack that spans the entirety of the glass.

Things just get worse from there. Burton takes his GT to the Ford dealership and discovers that the windshield isn’t in stock. To add salt to the wound, there’s some serious sticker shock to go with it: the glass costs $3,340. For now, though, since it’s a weekend, he decides to shelve the windshield issue for another day.

However, the shattered windshield isn’t the only issue for Burton’s GT. At some point during his excursions, he managed to lose the right rear center cap. This isn’t going to be an easy part to replace, either, not because it’s particularly difficult to install, but because it’s an exclusive item from BBS Wheels. While it’s not a critical piece to be missing, Burton notes that it does wreck the vehicle’s aesthetics.

Even though it’s not in the prettiest condition right now, Burton’s Ford GT is one impressive machine. It showed a Ram TRX What for on the track, giving the muscle truck a run for its money, and he took great care in making sure that it was able to be transported safely to the U.S. from the UK.

    Yet another misleading ‘headline’. Road hazard damages are not ‘issues’ with your vehicle.

    Agreed with Mackie

    Also, I can’t believe a random Ford dealer in Colorado didn’t have a Ford GT windshield in stock!

    Yes I’m being sarcastic. But I’m definitely not when I say this excuse for an article should never have been published at all, let alone how its worded.

    Do better.

    Average road hazard in Colorado as mentioned, and sorry he chose to go with aftermarket rims. Seems like Ford is not the issue here.
