What do you do when it's a Porsche Classics themed "private" show?

You ask nicely if you can sit in the "back row" with your friends, and then you all have a blast!

I’ll be at COTA this Sat and Sun running with the PCA guys and their HPDE. Tons of GT3’s and a white Mk II! 😎

A Pair of 98's. At the end of a week long seminar for high school students interested in all things automotive, there is a gathering.

Took a few photos of this complementary pair.

Went to a JDM (Japanese Domestic Market) meet up at a tuner shop in So Cal. Met the owner, and saw a Diorama that he had one display. Loved it. He had one left still in the box. I bought it from him.

1:24 scale.

And a wider view of the set. Windshield is cracked on the '05/'06 model because I let my boys enjoy it when they were young.

Oh you want to know about the car next to me this morning? Nothing that special, just a Pininfarina Battista Hybrid Hypercar. Yeah, it's pretty quick. Featuring 1,877 hp and 1,696 lb-ft to get you feeling your own heart beating, courtesy of a T-shaped 120-kWh battery pack, filled with 6,960 lithium-ion cells. Yeah, did I mention it's fast.TFL-SupercarSunday-2295.jpgTFL-SupercarSunday-2361.jpgTFL-SupercarSunday-2393.jpgTFL-SupercarSunday-2402.jpgTFL-SupercarSunday-2405.jpg

Still very proud of my Lemans proven Ford GT.

Nothing else can compare.

Had a local car meet up on Halloween for fun, and a minivan pulls up and a mom and her 3 kids get out. One of her young sons saw our cars in the shopping center and made his mom pull over. He knew a lot about cars, and specifically the Ford GT. So we talked a bit. They were there for a club soccer match and not from the area. But occasionally tournaments might bring them to our area. So, I said, oh if you are ever in the area again, drop by and I will leave a little something for Matt. (remote controlled NFGT and some other small stuff).

I left a care package with my staff, and finally, after 6 months, I pulled it, thinking that they weren't able to make the special trek out.

Not less than a week later, his mom, messages me on my car instagram, and says, hey we have another tournament nearby and are finally able to drop by, is the package still there? So, I repackage it and leave it out.

The other day, I get this really nice note, and gift card.

Because, hey, if we don't engage the next generation, no one is going to dreaming about driving EV Teslas and EV Priuses.

Recently hosted a successful "FORD of JULY" party, which is becoming a small tradition. Had a very nice turn out of cars and people. Had the big In-N-Out truck do a cookout on site which was a treat.

A big hit was the Grand Prize of the free raffle. We gave out tickets just before, since I hate having to call / sit through all the tickets at a raffle when the winner is not present. Called multiple times, but oddly, no one claimed it. (Found out after, that my younger son held the winning ticket, but didn't want it to look like a set up - thoughtful of him).

Found a lucky winner, and then someone swooped in and struck a side deal.

Now it's floating around in their pool for a leisurely pit stop. Funny.

Excited about Ford's upcoming return to Formula 1.

Still having fun and bringing smiles to the local car shows and eateries. This group of kids politely waited till the very end of the show, and then asked if they could get some rolling shots with my NFGT, and they even sent a video after. Saw a funky lifted Corvette later that morning.
