If you've been to one of these great Blue Oval outings you're most likely already packed and ready to head out to Irwindale very early on Sunday the 24th of April ... If you've always heard about this show and always wanted to see it for yourself ... YOU REALLY NEED TO DO THAT ... GO!

Get there early, dress in layers, wear comfortable closed-toe shoes, keep hydrated, buy a track dog (you're at a racetrack, right?) for lunch, maybe even bring a (real) camera along to take photos of this living history exhibit of the Ford Motor Company ...

SPECIAL NOTE: The official LACar FFF VIP Hospitality Area will be located in the same area as it has always been ... wherever free food is offered.

Editor's Note: Don't spend all day looking for the official LACar FFF VIP Hospitality Area... or looking for free food either for that matter.
