MSN.com does a terrific job covering cars and an entire feature story on the first Ford GT to hit the streets seemed to be a dream come true for auto geeks like us. But of course this isn't exactly unbiased journalism. The person who won the right to get the first GT is Microsoft executive John Shirley. Let's give Mr. Shirley some respect though because he won the right at an auction that raised $557,500 for various charities. As much as people rail against Microsoft at least Gates and others give to charity. Where was I…oh yeah the Ford GT. Shirley is a race enthusiast but didn't say if he'd take his new baby to the track, but he'd be nuts not to. We'll see if the now proven halo effect boosts sales of Ford Taurus' in the state of Washington.
