What have you done with your new Ford GT?

Your experience reminds me of one of my own. At a show last week in New Hope, PA a gentleman and his 14 year old son came up to me and asked if I had my GT at the same show about five years earlier. I said yes and the dad said, "Do you remember what you said to my young son back then when he sat in the car and asked how he could get one?" Yes, I remember, because I always give the same answer: "Do your homework!" The dad said they often repeat that story and use it as a motivator. Made my day.
That's outstanding! I'm so glad you did that. When I was working at the dealership, when we had our GT (the owner kept it for a short while) I let lots of people sit in it. If I could tell they liked it, I'd get the keys to let them get in. Young & old. Didn't matter.

And small world, I too was at the New Hope Auto Show. Went with 2 of my buddies from our Malvern Cars & Coffee group. Show was great and really enjoyed the day. The owner of the Diablo was the TOTAL opposite type of owner compared to my wife. He wouldn't let any kids sit in it. Shot them down all day. 😞

Do you live in Bucks County? I grew up in Chalfont and went to West in Doylestown. Live in Chester County now and a great Cars & Coffee scene out our way. If you need any places to go, let me know. The one spot is under the radar. 👍

Yup, definitely gonna be buying tickets to Radnor and adding the extra $10 for parking in the Motorsports Park. That is one of the best parts of Radnor. That Park changes all day with so many cool cars. 👍

Stopped by the new local McLaren dealership, which recently relocated from the Corona Del Mar area of Newport to a much larger traditional auto mall area.

Always appreciate the masterful blend of hard and soft lines that the Ford GT designers and engineers finessed so smoothly together. Contrasted with the generally softer shapes of McLaren and the hard edged lines of Lamborghini.

Susan and I are heading out today on our first "long distance" trip in our 2019 GT. We are driving from Texas to California to participate in the Classic Motorsports Magazine Golden State Tour. We've FedEx'd our suitcases out to the hotel and will make due with a travel clothes bag that fits under her feet.

Wish us luck!

I hope you have names and phone numbers of Forum members along the way. Have a good time. Remember to put it in wet mode if you hit rain.

I also hope neither one of you is carrying any weapons. Let her drive from time to time.
