Ford V Ferrari – Coming in November to a Cinema Near You

Ford-v-Ferrari

I went to see Ad Astra on the weekend, but of more importance was the trailer for Ford v Ferrari due for release in November this year. Ad Astra? yea, not bad, not good.

I’ve taken the following article from Wikipedia. The last ‘motorsport’ movie I saw was Senna and I’m expecting to enjoy this as much if not more.

I’ve left all the links embedded in the story – primarily to provide as much detail as possible. Don’t miss this struggle of two motoring goliaths. I’m expecting Ford v Ferrari to be the number 1 movie this year, at least for motoring enthusiasts.

“Ford v Ferrari is a 2019 American biographical drama film directed by James Mangold and written by Jez ButterworthJohn-Henry Butterworth and Jason Keller. It stars Matt Damon and Christian Bale, while Caitriona BalfeJon BernthalTracy LettsJosh LucasNoah JupeRemo Girone and Ray McKinnon appear in supporting roles.

The plot follows an eccentric, determined team of American engineers and designers, led by automotive visionary Carroll Shelby and his British driver, Ken Miles, who are dispatched by Henry Ford II and Lee Iacocca with the mission of building the Ford GT40, a new racing car with the potential to finally defeat the perennially dominant Ferrari racing team at the 1966 24 Hours of Le Mans race in France.

Early stages of the film featured Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt in the starring roles, but that rendition eventually fell through. Mangold was then hired in February 2018, and Damon, Bale and the rest of the cast joined that summer. Filming began in July 2018 in California and lasted a little over two months.

Ford v Ferrari had its world premiere at the Telluride Film Festival on August 30, 2019, and is scheduled to be theatrically released in the United States on November 15, 2019, by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures. The film received positive reviews from critics, who lauded the performances and racing sequences.”

Welcome!

Hello and welcome to my new website thecarguy.com.au!

I know that there’s a lot of websites that offer car reviews, car road tests, opinions on various cars and the like. What makes this site different is that I’m not going to bore you with technical information about the various cars that I review.

I’ve been in the car business for over 39 years. I’ve read the motoring magazines cover to cover. I’ve read the online reviews until my eyes were square. Everywhere that I go, I find motoring journalists talking about car speeds – 0 – 100 km per hour, standing ¼ times, the inclination of this and that at 150klm per hour on a 12.5% gradient curve, in rainy weather – and other stuff that bores me no end.

thecarguy.com.au is taking a different path on the journey to helping you purchase a new car. I’ll do my best to advise you on what I consider to be the most important information when it comes to that major decision to purchase a car. Interior room, features of the car, fuel economy, safety, service prices, resale and lots more. I’ll tell you what I like about a particular car and as importantly, what I don’t like, to find at least to be less than I think a car should have. .

And I’ll ask for your opinion. Take some pics of what you’re driving and tell me and our audience what you particularly like or dislike about your car. Because besides prospective new car buyers, there’s a lot of people who’ll read your comments as used car buyers.

So, jump on board, strap yourself in and let’s start out on the journey with The Car Guy.
