The day started when I met up with the Ford Social team inside the Las Vegas Convention Center and discussed basic journalism. After a few minutes we entered and attended the Ford Outstanding Design Achievement Awards. Nine awards were handed out to various vehicles and builders.
Ford introduced an all-steel body reproduction of the 1940 Ford coupe, now offered through Ford Restoration Parts, followed by the introduction by Mr. Edsel B. Ford II, great-grandson of Henry Ford, of a painting showing the history of Ford Racing – from early 1900’s to today’s racing cars.
The unveiling of the new Twin Turbo Cobra Jet Mustang was the last and – from my perspective – most exciting announcement at the press conference.
After that, I spent the rest of the afternoon looking and taking photos of several Mustangs with different engines, suspensions, tuning packages, paint schemes and several different wheels and tires combinations.
Peter Kindermann is a citizen journalist that we invited to the 2012 SEMA Show. We arranged credentials to give him access to this industry-only show and turned him loose to take pictures and write a post for Ford Social from the event.
