Cool Street Race, Sonora Edition – Mustang GT vs. Taurus SHO?



Our local Ford dealership is under new ownership, so my wife and I stopped by to check out the ’13 Explorer. The salesman (Dustin) was really nice, he wasn’t pushy and we just stood and talked for quite a while about trying to overcome the reputation of previous owner, helping out in the community, and getting to know what people like and dislike about Ford's design, performance, etc.

They have a new Taurus SHO in stock, and Dustin mentioned that he and his co-workers want to drag race it against a new Mustang GT. Sonora Ford recently had a car wash fund raiser for the soccer team that the daughter of a CHP officer is on (the girls raised over $500 for their team!). Anyway the CHP officers at the fund raiser said they would be willing to shut down a stretch of highway and race the two cars.

In a town struggling to promote local business and trying to improve customer service, we want to help the local economy and also promote the businesses who are really trying to participate in the community. We think it could turn into a big event.

With enough positive feedback and commitment we can probably get coverage from our local paper as well as news teams from Sac, and most likely get a couple professional photographers, videographers and food venders on site.

Here’s the question, if we can get them to do this (probably on a weekend), how many of you would show up for the event?

Oh man! That sounds great! If only you weren't 3 1/2 hours away I would go. Good luck with it. Post pics when they do it.

MisterJohnson you make this sound boring! Maybe I'll do a vid for you so ppl can get really excited! I already got some vendors and photographers down, just need to finish editing the photos from the TPS show and go into Ford and talk to the guys there.
