Kick off our "History of Le Mans" 3-part series with one of the most iconic cars in the history of Le Mans, courtesy of one of the most iconic specialty car designers and restorers of our day, Rob Ida, from Morganville, NJ. Many of you know the work of both Rob and his father Bob Ida from over the years. Bob's newest acquisition is this absolutely stunning 2019 Ford GT. It features a carbon fiber body and 3.5-liter V6 engine with 647 HP. The Ford GT’s 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine is also the company’s most powerful EcoBoost ever and was developed alongside the GT race engine.

Are We There Yet? Discussion and Book Signing with Dan Albert
Saturday, June 22 @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm

Following the June 22 Demo Day, join the Simeone for a one-day discussion and book signing with author Dan Albert. In Are We There Yet?, Dan Albert combines historical scholarship with personal narrative to explore how car culture has suffused America’s DNA. The plain, old-fashioned, human-driven car built our economy, won our wars, and shaped our democratic creed as it moved us about. Driver’s ed made teenagers into citizens; auto repair made boys into men.

Free with regular admission!
