While not specifically an “old” Ford, I’ve got a neat picture to contribute.
Since I was old enough to learn about cars I’ve always been fascinated by the Ford GT. I’ve read “go like hell” by AJ Baime about Fords slugfest with Ferrari at LeMans in the 60’s, I’ve watched countless videos and reviews of the real cars and replicas, and I’ve studied what made them so damn good. Then when the GT was reborn in 2005 I fell in love all over again, a very loyal modern take on a legendary classic. To this day the 05-06 GT remains my favorite 4 wheeled vehicle, period. Well now that I work for Ford I see tons of advertising and email centered around the new “Ford Performance” label and the new 2017 GT, as controversial as it is with its ecoboost v6.
All that being said, me and 2-3 friends usually make the trip up to caffeine and octane the first Sunday of every month in north Atlanta to check out the cars and generally just soak up the atmosphere with other car people. When we arrived we saw the giant Ford semi in the parking lot, and I knew we were in for a treat, we just had to find what was in that truck. Well as we were walking through the “concourse” section my friend grabs me and points me to the right of where I was and points through the crowd. I immediately knew from the tiny piece of door I could see through all the people
Pardon my goofy ass, but my friends know how much of a GT geek I am and refused to let me away from it without a picture. This was THE number 66 that was fresh off the trailer from MoSport in Canada and was in town for the petit lemans at Road Atlanta. I nearly fainted
