Maybe Lee Gray, in his wisdom, saw that the convertibles and fastbacks already had the public eye, and wanted to give the coupe something everyone would see as different - including improving 68 sales. When he saw it with Fred Goodell and saw that Shelby wasnt going to build it beyond the prototype, this was his chance to make something very different for the market. I am sure glad he did.

BTW, I saw two 2007 GT/CS's at two different local dealers here in Illinois this weekend. Casey
