White House officials told the Ford team that the president recently saw the Hollywood blockbuster "Ford v Ferrari" and was interested in seeing the Ford GT cars. So Ford arranged to have three vehicles at the plant during the visit, one from the Le Mans era, one from 2005-06 and a 2020 GT, said Mark Truby, Ford chief communications officer.

Right when the president arrived at the plant, before any public events, Trump and Bill Ford Jr. talked about the race cars.

"Bill personally showed the president the FGTs and was able to recount some stories about Ford at Le Mans and the development of the vehicles," said Truby, who was in earshot of the conversation.

Edsel would have been a better guide. He actually loves cars. Also you can't buy one - you need to be an 18 year old idiot media influencer with a million followers to be considered.
