This weekend is one I have been looking forward to for a long long time. As you read this, I am taking part in a vintage automotive restoration summer camp program at Pennsylvania College of Technology (I’ll try to post plenty of photos on my Instagram page @hotrod_crazy). The camp is a great opportunity for me to truly get my feet wet and learn more about a field I am interested in pursuing for my career. As you may have figured out, I love everything having to do with vintage automobiles, from getting my hands dirty on a restoration to curating a collection or just be one with the Bonneville salt flats in a hopped up 1932 ford.

Anyway, let’s get into what I have in store for you guys with this post!!

Sadly it’s not a real 1/1 scale... but it is a 1/18th scale Ford GT MK IV made by Racing Legends. This model was bought new by my dad and today (actually, yesterday) was the first time it was brought out of its packaging into the great outdoors.

No rain in the forecast, so I used a spray bottle filled with water to add more of a dramatic effect. In some of the photos I swear the model looks like the real car. The details are breathtakingly realistic.

Check out the label on the fire extinguisher. It really does look like the real thing, and I should know because last summer I had the opportunity to sit inside a real Ford GT at Lime Rock Race Track in Connecticutt. That’s another great story I’d love to tell. Keep an eye out for a post about it sometime next week.
