Dan. I have yet to drive the new 430. I am looking forward to it. Someone I know that has an SLR is giving himself one for christmas. As far as the Ford GT, it is the easiest car to drive fast that I have ever driven. It even understeers a bit unless you coax it out. Totally solid. Completely refined. I would be lying if I didn't tell you there was a hint of Pantera in it for a second. Probably from the tone behind your ears. I think it's worth 150 but not what they are still getting for them. I'll also tell you that GT3 is hands down the most tractable car at it's limits. I did not push the GT as the owner was with me. The C6 Z06 felt lighter than the GT.
