North American International Auto Show
And what we saw did not disappoint us. As many of you know I am a Ford fan. The all new Ford F-150 with it’s all aluminum body and the amazing new Mustang alone made the trip worth while.
It was an amazing time. I met and talked with many Ford leaders as well as some very famous and very personable race drivers! I met John Force who happens to be very funny(no pun intended) and is the world record holder in Funny Car drag racing, Greg Foutz (Off Road) who recently drove an (disguised as a 2014) all aluminum bodied F-150 with the new 2.7 EcoBoost in the Baja 1000 (check out the video here )and then drove from California to Dearborn! I had the pleasure of meeting Hall of Fame NASCAR driver Ned Jarrett and his son Dale. I also met Vaughn Gittin Jr. (Formula Drift) and his lovely girlfriend along with Brian Deegan (he rides and drives anything with wheels!). There we others as well, but we ran out of time before the showing of clips from the upcoming movie Need for Speed.
And of course, none of this wouldn’t have been possible if I hadn’t been invited by my friend Frank Bisono! What a trip!
