Southern California automotive media heavyweight Magnus Walker (The Urban Outlaw) will be filming a special Ford GT episode of his series "The Big Thing" the weekend before our dinner. He'll be driving all 3 generations of the Ford GT at Laguna Seca including my 2017. He'll be here for Barrett Jackson and told me this morning he'll be there IF his schedule permits. No guarantee but he's a super interesting/personable guy and I hope he can join us. I've invited some Ford executives as well. If you're going to be at Barrett Jackson, don't screw the pooch and miss this!
Well, I’ll be watching virtually. I don’t trust myself to be there in person, as I may end up bidding, and I need another car like I need another hole in my head.
At any rate, given the results at Mecum last week, I’m expecting BJ to be an even more wild and exciting show. I’ll watch for you guys when the camera pans the audience. Wear something Ford GT related!
AZGT (Larry) and JBG (John G.) contacted me and will be joining us. Not everybody checks in here often enough so if you know a GT owner going to B-J Scottsdale please tell them to contact me and join us. More fun than a VW Microbus full of bikini clad high-school cheerleaders. See you soon!!

I spent yesterday at Willow Springs with Magnus Walker filming the final episode of his series "The Big Thing" featuring all 3 generations of the Ford GT. The Peterson Museum loaned their 1967 GT Mk III, Randy Wong brought his 2006 GT, and I supplied my 2017. Filming on the track and local roads went on all day and the process was pretty interesting. Billy Johnson was there too. Magnus is a super cool guy and a big gun in the Porsche world. If you aren't familiar with him Google "Urban Outlaw" and watch the short film. He's arriving here tomorrow to attend Barrett Jackson and will be joining us on Thursday night. If you've never met him before you're in for a treat. We are now maxed out at 40.
As always, the total tab for food and drinks will be totaled with a 20% tip and divided by the number attending AND PAID IN CASH so show up with a pocket full of $20 dollar bills. NO CREDIT CARDS so hit an ATM before you arrive. This keeps it simple and easy.
