Some GT magic this morning. I’m having my GT sent up north to test a tune and has luck would have it, a previously unknown GT owner in my little hometown was having his car delivered on the same truck picking up my car. Upon hearing this, I decided to surprise the new owner (which he was!) and show up at 6 am before his car showed up. I think my car was the last thing he expected to see. It’s always exciting meet a new GT owner, and even more so when he is 15 minutes away. He’s been a lurker on here so let’s see if he joins!

The local Southern California car venue was having a special Supercar Saturday, so after a late friday night, I managed to wake up and head over just after 6:00 am this morning. They parked me next to a Pinifarina Battista.

But a few strangers still came up to me, and whispered, without me asking for an opinion, they shared how much they loved the Ford GT, and how they thought it was the best car there. (There were some insane other supercars there).

But wow, how lucky are we to experience this timeless work of art.

And yes, some people were unhappy with the whole allocation process.

But I think people had been complaining about allocation and dealer markups for years, and it seems it's only getting worse. Uh, anyone try to buy or order a modern Porsche lately? (I have not, but I hear the mark ups and process are really unpleasant).

Thanks again to Ford, for all the efforts to take the time to create a process to reduce that whole mess, and again, for the gift of experiencing this legendary vehicle.

Still a huge crowd pleaser, for sure, and many years after the first were introduced.

The largest congregation in my town (Yucaipa) had its 10th annual car show.
I took the 2019 and out of about 200 plus cars it took best of show. And there were some really impressive cars in attendance. Some folks didn't know of the existence of the NFGT, and most who did had never seen one in the wild. Some had seen me cruising around town and were hoping for a up close look.

During the show I always had a crowd around the car and I must have answered a 1000 questions. Good thing I had a plaque with info.
I have had the car at other shows/city's where you might see the occasional Ford GT but Yucaipa is different. I am the only multiple GT owner around here. We have more gearheads per capita for such a small town so the car was highly entertaining and very appreciated.

I think the best part of it all is I struck FGT ambassador gold. Because this years winner of 'Best of Show' will be next years car used in all advertisement, the banners on one of the main streets (high traffic) near the place, T-shirts and the awards.
Yucaipa is not the small town it used to be, but it still has that small town atmosphere. Almost all 40,000 plus residents are going to know what a NFGT is this time next year. Score!!!
Sorry I was so busy I didn't get any pics until latter.

POST SCRIPT: A new chartreuse C8 pulled in next to me but with enough space between us. Hardly anyone paid attention, the Vette, was almost completely ignored.

If the blue oval on the front clip doesn't convince someone this should.

I did a track day at MSR 2 weeks ago which was miserable, at least this was for a good cause. Hope you had access to some AC?

You name it, we've got it.
That's why people are leaving in droves.

Auto spell correct is a wonderful thing 🤣

You should get a new cell phone with a better camera. That doesn't look like you in front of Prada. Re,member, the Devil wears Prada. Hope you had Donny Mac in the lead clearing off pesky rabbits.

We just got back from Big Bend/Terlingua/Marathon in the BRaptor. The road and off road experience is fantastic. Aside from hiking my favorite is the expansive starry night sky.

Life's good, isn't it?

With all the hustle, bustle and challenges life throws at us, it's not lost on me how lucky we all are. Living in a place where we can hop in our American made, Le Mans winning supercar to buy $3 worth of hardware from our local Tractor Supply reminds me just how good life can be.

Haven't talked to many of you in a while but hope you're all doing well and get the chance to take your GTs out soon if weather permits. God bless America and our gorgeous Ford GTs! Take care friends.
