2015 Ford Mustang Journalists Event

I was very fortunate to be invited along with several other Mustang owners to be a part of this once in a lifetime event. It lasted about 10 days and I attended two of those days. Ford had Journalists from the USA and Foreign Journalists come and have opportunity to Drive the 2015 GT and Ecoboost through hills in LA and on a track and end up at a resort for Lunch and meet about 20 Vintage and Late Model Mustang owners and their vehicles. The best part of it was we were able to sit in 20 different 2015 Mustangs and check them out thoroughly. Also I had long conversation with Fords Chief of Engineering Dave Pericak. Dave was a great down to earth person and he was responsible for 2015 Mustang.
Here are some Pictures.

Carpinteria is a really nice Town. My wife and I stayed at a B&B a couple times. You are fortunate.

Mostly played as a worship leader for 25 years. Left the church for tons of reasons. Gave that up. Now focusing on Building Guitars.
Love working with wood.
