Annually despite all the changes in our lives, my son and I go every Spring to the New York International Auto Show that’s held at the Jacob Javitz Convention Center in what used to be part of Hell’s Kitchen, he’s 24 now, and automobiles & sports have been something we’ve shared since he was young. It’s one of our things. The New York International Auto Show is the oldest auto show in the US. I started attending in the late 1970’s with my uncle, cousin and my brother when the event was held at the old New York Coliseum that was torn down to build the Time Warner Center at Columbus Circle. So why am I posting an image of the Ford GT sports car now in June? Honestly, as a single father, with a full time (and then some) job, both our doggies have had some medical problems (one is still being diagnosed) I don’t get to develop all my digital files as quickly as I’d like. In addition my ADHD as I describe in my profile tends to make me a bit scatter brained in my patterns so I never really have a plan on what I get inspired to post, plus a significant racing event drew me back to the Ford GT. Ford Motor Company returned to the Le Mans 24 hour race this year in 2016, 50 years after the Ford Motor Company’s thrilling victory over Ferrari at the 35th running of Le Mans under the direction of team owner Carroll Shelby with a Ford/Shelby GT-40 driven by A.J. Foyt and Dan Gurney. Well the father’s day gift Ford got was a victory with the Ford GT in the 2016 edition of 24 hours at Le Mans and ironically once again over Ferrari that finished second so that sort of triggered me to search for my Ford GT captures from this year’s Auto Show. So this beautiful vehicle in yellow was the basis of the winning team cars, so it marks a significant victory in the international event of American muscle and technology. Though these days I move around in a mundane and reliable Subaru Outback, when I was a lad, the Ford Mustang was probably my favorite car and that led me to admire the famous Shelby Mustangs that Texan Carroll Shelby modified for Ford Motor Company and his GT’s. Interestingly enough, the current version doesn’t have the small block V-8’s that Shelby tweaked under the hood, but actually utilizes a 3.5 Liter V-6 that in the stock GT like the one pictured here puts out over 600 horsepower, impressive indeed. I’ve included a link from Ford that gives the background of why Ford got back into racing.
