Springtime is a highly anticipated time for many muscle car enthusiasts each year, as the break in the weather means that prized automotive possessions may return to the road. Usually a time for weekend cruises and early morning car shows, spring this year is quite a bit different than normal. With the ongoing coronavirus pandemic causing just about every event out there to be cancelled, the team over at Ford Performance have announced their own virtual car show.
In order to appease the urges of Ford vehicle owners desperate to show their vehicles off to others, the Ford Performance YouTube channel will be hosting a virtual car show in the coming weeks. While there is no date set for the show at this point, Ford Performance have detailed how owners can submit their vehicle for entry.
In order to qualify, owners must submit four high quality photos to the email found on this page, along with general information about the vehicle and its owners. Ford Performance is also asking owners to tell the stories behind their cars, including any modifications it may have or any awards it may have won at other shows.
The event is set to be hosted by John Clor, Ford Performance Enthusiast Communications Manager, and Matt Andersen, who happens to be the Curator of Transportation at the Henry Ford Museum. Considering the quality of vehicles that are on display at the Henry Ford Museum, we are certain the hosts are more than ready to judge some owners’ vehicles.
While there is really no way that a virtual car show on YouTube will be as fulfilling as your local Saturday morning meetups, it’s the best that we can hope for right now. The fact that Ford Performance took it upon themselves to set such an event up suggests that they are feeling as car crazy and cooped up as the rest of us. But on the brightside, at least there won’t be any Mustang and crowd interactions at this show.
