Pic from this morning, These aren't Dirt Mountain Broncos, instead they are Sand pile Broncos and have landed in Austin doing preview drives for folks. Betting this coincides with the international tourists coming from all over the world for the F1 race.

Having gone to the inaugural F1 race at COTA in 2012, there were TONS of global travelers in town for the race. Surely Covid restrictions have cut down on the volume of travelers greatly, but it's still good PR for Ford.

Yeah you're spot on. I'm very curious to see how the attendance break down is this year with varying travel restrictions because this is definitely an international spectacle

I can't be for certain but I think that is my Velocity Blue Badlands in the back of the line. I'm in Houston, can I come pick it up after the weekend? :ROFLMAO:

Maybe not peppy, but it's UGE!!!!!! Absolutely UUUUUUUUGE!

Current F1 engine formula is 1.6 ltr V6, so a 2.3 or 2.7 really slaps a big girthy American sausage across the tiny European bangers.
