Ford vs Ferrari

Recommended Posts

The GT40 story and Le Mans ‘66-69 is great.  Just looked up credits for that movie, Shelby and Frey are not mentioned.  How accurate can it be?  

 

It may not be a documentary but I am going to see it.  Thanks for posting the trailer.

 

Edit for correctness:  Matt Damon is portraying Mr Shelby.  Must have read the names too late at night.

Didn't Damon learn from True Grit that playing Texans is not his forte?  :lol:

 

A kid from Cambridge playing a Texan...isn't that cultural appropriation?

There are a t least 6 movies or documentaries on Amazon Prime about the GT40 and Lemans. Best Hollywood version is the one with McQueen. From the trailer I'd say this will be another Hollywoodized glamor thing. Don't expect it to be a historically correct depiction.

As Ken Miles has been for decades before them.  I miss read the credits, Matt Damon portrays Carol Shelby.

Once they got the body shape right, they just buried Enzo with cubic inches. Used nascar's experience in making big blocks last for 500 miles running flat out turning left:lol::blush:
