Well, I'm sure most everyone would agree, that there is certainly nothing ugly about any Ford GT, so, the thread title, although a classic western reference, simply is not a perfect fit.

Loving the variety of color choices and options on the NFGT, the personal style and flavor really comes through.

Had a fun morning at the local Moulin Bistro car show in Newport Beach. What fun mix of old, older, and new Ford GT's.

Was nice to be able to easily explain the history and development of the cars with a nice spread all in the same parking lot.

And fortunately, was able to hang out for a couple relaxing hours, before the swim and tennis practices for my growing boys.

I think that's Jordan Maron. YouTube guy. His GT is similar in color to Riveria Blue, but different too.

Love the NFGT with the “V6 Ford” license plate. Looked like a great event.

Thanks for sharing photos. You had a great turn out of 05/06 GTs and NGTs.

Yes, Jordan Moran parked right next to me and introduced himself. My son recognized him as a popular YouTube gamer, Captain Sparklez who incidentally has over 10 million subscribers. I normally wouldn't identify someone, but since he is in front of millions and it's no secret that he has this beautiful Ford GT, as he has created delivery and drive videos with it.

Additionally, I think he'd be fine with it. Sons of my friend also recognized him and his car immediately.

Seems like a nice guy. Very nice paint color.

Turn out was even more than originally expected by the organizer. Good times all around!

Some show video and commentary and a closer look at the Mark IV from Doug Campbell, owner of Superformance. (FF to just past halfway).

https://www.facebook.com/doug.campbell.902/videos/10218124759421089/UzpfSTE2MzgxMjM4Nzg6MTAyMTEwMjU0ODYwNjY1OTE/

Look away when the photographer places his ladder...A bit too close to the body.

Look away again when the photographer stands on the tire...I sure hope he knows the owner. Even then, I'd likely not stand on someone else's tire, permitted or not.

(Not sure if Doug caught the humorous reference to Ferraris on Arya's plate, but he did catch the fairly self explanatory PSYCHO GT).

+1, for us in the Northeast. Was looking at the pix, thinking it looks cold there with everyone wearing sweatshirts etc, then I realized it might be in the 60's....

I heard Campbell say that it is chassis J9 and still is raced in vintage races, I think with some races planned in 2019.

At 7am, I think it was a bone chilling 50 degrees... ;)
