Elite Supercar, Ford GT, delivered to new owner at Timberline Auto of Libby

Scott Hensrude of Washington state pauses for
a photo op in front of Timberline Auto in downtown
Libby on Wednesday, September 15, with his brand new 2021 Ford GT.

The rare supercar reportedly came with a $613,000 price tag (including delivery). Though elite ownership comes not just with a lofty cost, but a thorough application process completed through Ford Motors, as well.

Unlike the supercharged V-8 in the previous-generation GT, the new car is equipped with a twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V-6 engine that is similar to the one found in the Ford F-150 Raptor. Pumping out 660 horsepower and 550 lb-ft of torque, the V-6 is mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.

Preserving fossil fuels is the lowest priority when it comes to hypercars. However, the Ford GT is one of the most efficient examples. The EPA estimates the 2021 model will earn 12 mpg city and 18 highway. Compare that with gas guzzlers like the Bugatti Chiron(9/15 mpg city/highway) and the Lamborghini Aventador (9/14 mpg city/highway).

Logger golf is red hot and rolling behind sophomore Reece Malyevac. Reece was able to overcome a 14 team, 120 total player field to fire a 1 under 71 and win the Polson Bay Invitational. That’s an excellent score on a good golf course. With GREAT support from his teammates the Logger boys placed 3rd.  Mason Gotham and Dylan Buckner tied for 15th both shooting a great score of 84.  Rounding out the boys team were Landon Haddocks 93 and Thomas Roark shooting 114.  It was a great day for Logger Golf!

Libby continues to put out very successful
golfers thanks to the support of Cabinet View Golf Course and the community’s support of Junior Golf. Jimmy Mee ran away with a 5th Montana Open, Ryggs Johnston is playing for ASU and finished 3rd in the nation last spring. Jonny Cielak
had a great college career playing in the Frontier Conference.

We are very fortunate to have a golf course of this quality led by PGA Pro Jeff Dooley and Head Superintendent Jerad Dill creating a superior course to practice and play on. Many thanks also go out to Joe Cielak, Mark Managhan, Dean Thompson and others involved helping to develop these young golfers in Junior Golf.
