That's a terrific video. I'm a fan of Carl Edwards and the Ford he races. It was a real treat to see and hear the car run. Edsel Ford II is a great spokesman for FMC.
Thanks for posting the video.

It's only off-topic in the way "where it all got its running start" would be off-topic.

Thanks, so much, for sharing!

That is amazing! I missed it if it was on display when I was up at the Henry Ford Museum.

.. Thanks for posting this; it was a treat; I can’t get over how many times Nascar Driver ‘Carl Edwards’ used “amazing” to discribe his experience driving a Car that at that time was 112 yrs old. He also said “his Favorite Car”, “Neatest Car he has ever driven”; the whole time I don’t think he ever got that ear to ear smile off his face. One of the HAMB members once said that “it’s not how fast you have went; it’s how you went fast!” that sure applies here.
