Very cool museum with everything original. Lots of Shelby stuff.

Ironically, I didnt take any pictures of my car, just Gary's. But found this one online with the two of us.

This is the first time almost all these people have seen a NFGT, and Gary was a great brand ambassador. Quite the crowd gathers when you demonstrate track mode to people. More people interested in the GT than the McLaren Senna.

We met Ryan Hardwick, who drives a GTD car in the IMSA Weathertech series and has a nice black GT.
We are all GT ambassadors! The Gt sure is a show stopper! Look at the mob around Garys car!
The Black 06 stripe car needs to be lowered! It looks like a rally set up!

First outing yesterday at DuPont Registry Cars & Coffee with a fellow Forum member’s killer Lightweight. Straight to the PPF shop thereafter.

Cars look fantastic. I must also give a nod to the Cyclone in the background (one of the few GM vehicles I like).

Thanks Andy. Yeah, the Cyclone and it’s SUV sibling, the Typhoon, were cool. I have a soft spot for those GM V6s. We swapped a 3.8L into a Toyota 4x4 when I was a kid.

Drove her in yesterday morning from the PPF installers shop to home base (50 mi) all freshly done. It was really nervous time when I drove over there, must have used a whole roll of 2" blue tape and said a hail Mary.
(Sorry no pics of my tape job).
Anyway, finally done, took about three weeks but several were ahead of me.
Same guy who did Graham Rahal's GT.

I hear you. Xcentric helped me remove the 1 mile of blue tape.

Today I went to a Memorial Day weekend car show. American muscle parked up front. I won a bottle of Dom Perignon for best in show. Popped the cork and shared it with fellow car lovers. Hope everyone has a nice Memorial Day tomorrow.

Done a few shows now. This past Saturday was a blast. I was the only exotic there. Nearly everything else was a modified low rider of some sort or another and full of car clubs. I was smack in the middle of the Vieittos Club. Listening to oldies all day long. Got to love So Cal. Haha!

I didn’t realize. The new one (way back in this picture) was so much smaller than the old one (front of the picture).

We took our GT to the Treasure Valley Mustang and Ford Club Car show in Meridian, Idaho this past Saturday. It was a hit, to say the least.

Spent the last 4 days giving rides in the GT on track at Motorsports Park Hastings to generate donations for children's charities.

Any experience with Ford's recommendation for heat cycling the tires before using the car in anger?

Tomy,

Got my 1/18 scale model of the 2016 winner yesterday also and it brought back the same feelings from the 2016 trip to LeMans!

Go Ford!
