In May of 2009 my Ford GT attended the Pacific Palisades car show, along with my 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T SE. That month I also used a then-new 2009 Ford Flex as a Ford GT parts runner to haul two GT seats, a headlight, a steering wheel and a rear tire about 50 miles. The Flex had room to spare and drove easily with the extra parts in the cargo area.
May 2009: Ford GT attends Pacific Palisades Car Show
May 17, 2009 at 18,209 miles
On May 17, 2009 I displayed my car at the Pacific Palisades Car Show next to my 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T SE. It was a cool, cloudy day in Southern California, but show turnout was large with plenty of spectators circling the Ford GT and Challenger all day long.
