Ford Virtual Car Show Aims To Alleviate Enthusiasts During COVID-19 Shutdown

With most folks “trapped” in their homes due to stringent stay at home orders from local governments over the COVID-19 outbreak, many gatherings have been being postponed or canceled, including various car-related events. This means no track days, no Cars And Coffees, and nothing of the like. Fortunately for antsy auto enthusiasts, a Ford virtual car show is currently in the works.

Ford Performance is spearheading the project, and is expected to live-stream the occasion on the official Ford Performance YouTube Channel. The event is to be hosted by Ford Performance Enthusiast Communications Manager John Clor, along with Henry Ford Museum’s Transportation Curator, Matt Andersen. No exact date has been set as of this writing, but word has it that it will take place in the first half of May.

Those looking to participate can do so via email submission, and should include the following information:

  • Name
  • Age
  • Location
  • Any Ford club or groups you may be a part of
  • Pertinent vehicle details:
    • Make
    • Model
    • Year
    • Powertrain (engine, transmission)
    • Color
    • Notable production stats

Those participating in the Ford virtual car show should also include at least four high-quality, high-resolution photos or videos of their vehicle, along with its backstory: when did you acquire the vehicle, what have you done to it, and what has it accomplished? Was it a noble steed that served as a daily driver, or was it a tool you used at the track? Was it a workhorse, or did you keep it pristine and take home the trophy from summer time car shows?

When you’ve got all that put together, you can go ahead and send it to:  [email protected].

The Ford virtual car show should help cure the itch caused by the COVID-19 lockdown, or at least temporarily satisfy it.

Frankie's first favorite car was a 1968 Ford Mustang, and he's had a strong appreciation for the nameplate ever since. Later in his youth he became infatuated with Eleanor, thanks to Nicholas Cage's stellar performance. Frank's a real jokester, too.
