New FGT guest car to appear at Simeone
« on: May 21, 2019, 10:24:03 AM »
Rob Ida will bring his new Ford GT to compliment the Museum's cars at the LeMans [Part 1] Demonstration Day on Saturday 5/25/19.
I thought that this might be of interest to some other locals. The GT is not mentioned on the website (link below), but there are multiple posts on the Museum's Facebook and Instagram pages about the visitor.
I've never seen one of these new cars "up close and personal"... or run - thus planning to go  8)

couple of pix:




It was great to be able to get up close and check out the new GT and at least hear it run around the [huge] back lot.
It does appear more missile than car to me  :-\

(there are also more/better pix at the Museum website)
