I don’t remember seeing “optional trailer tow package” on the GT options list View attachment 64860
Why haul your GT when you can use it as a hauler. I think Jeff Foxworthy
would appreciate this
"Larry the Cable Guy" modification.

For those of you who left early, you missed Henry Ford III.

Thanks for posting Chris and was great to see that Parnelli Jones No. 15 Boss 302 out on the track. Just had my Boss 302 out for a run this weekend.

It was a very cool inaugural event. I hope it keeps going. The Astro Turf in the pits was a neat idea. Cars were pitted by era or style similar to Goodwood. The guides had military/stewardess uniforms on. The Ford hospitality suite was a nice place to hang out. Demo Man raced a few of his cars! Seeing some of my forum friends was the best.

I was kinda surprised that the Liquid Carbon GT was not as shinny as I thought it would be. Interesting headlight change for 2022.

Don’t forget Mark Rushbrook, Ford Performance Motorsports Global Director and Jim Farley CEO. Ford really brought out the big guns. Oh and of course Joey Hand and Billly Johnson.

I got an email from Concierge with Velocity event info. So I sent off a reply asking if they would be bringing any of those special GT's to Rally 13. His high and mighty air head response :


and btw there was approximately $30,000,000+ of NFGT's in Scottsdale. All purchased via Mr. Airhead's business. Arrogant is way too mild in my opinion.
What a lame response from the GT "manager". Thanks for posting Jeff. Wonder what "unique insurance/bailment policy" Sam Walton had to acquire to deliver his GT40 to the Apex track event? What a stupid response.
Dave, where is my popcorn?

Depends, how harsh do you want me to be?

Ouch. And I mean OUCH.

And thanks again Dave, and Chip, for pressing on and putting together such an awesome Rally, with the great slate of guests, and events. I literally think about it every day 🍻
