THE 2005 FORD GT VERSE NEW FORD GT CHALLENGE!

GTJOEY STYLE!
Lets make this interesting and FUN!
A one way 3,000 mile plus run from Southold New York to California!
Not a race , I will DONATE $10,000 To the new GT owners charity of choice that we both agree on!
All the new GT has to do is make it under its own power.............
I will take a 2005 Ford GT with only 55,000 miles on it.
My co driver from "Around the World with a Ford GT " run ....."Nardo Chris" will be along for the ride after all his radiation treatment.
Maybe we call Leno, Maybe we do Laguna Seca, Maybe we do Pebble Beach!
It will only take 3 or 4 days , call it a week.
If the 2005 Ford GT makes it and the NEW GT does not......" I DONATE TO THE SCHRINERS CHILDRENS CANCER FUND"

Spring or summer we plan out a simple route.
Spread the word......Anyone up to it?
Lets have fun!

Joey, that’s a fantastic idea. Please keep us informed on your plans. Either way, sounds like a great charitable trip.
Regards Brian
 
Thank you Brian......
Well it didnt take long. We have a new GT and an old.

Joey, in today’s messed up world I’m glad that there are people out there that have want, and the ability to make such a great donation for charity. Not only that, but having a good time doing it.

Regards Brian
 
A Long Time Update!
Well with restriction starting to loosen
One co driver beat cancer and another beat covid
With borders opening up next spring to summer we should be looking good!
Stay tuned!

It's not the most direct route for you, but if you could take Skyline Drive / the Blue Ridge Parkway, highly recommended. It does run NE SW.

Skyline Drive is 106 miles long and its north end starts in Front Royal VA, south end runs right into the Blue Ridge Parkway which ends 469 miles SW in Cherokee NC. Curvy, smoothly paved roads through the wooded Smoky Mountains with many scenic mountain top and valley overlooks. Again, not direct, but absolutely beautiful. Just depends on your schedule and priorities.

Looking forward to how this trip plays out ... and pics!
 
That exact route is on the table
It’s not a race as more as a durability and fun run!
80 across would be too boring and the roads are terrible
Thanks for the suggestion
Camera team and photographer are in
