Collecting My Ford GT in NEW YORK!

This is by far the craziest and most exciting thing I've ever done, my Ford GT is now in New York! Upon touchdown at JFK, it's straight to the cargo terminal to collect my car following its own 3,500 mile flight, to get started my adventure in the USA with some sightseeing around Manhattan!

A few days after loading the car onto a pallet in Amsterdam, you join me now at JFK after my own passenger flight, to go pick it up. My friend @speedracer38 reversed things as an American driving a British car in the form of the Aston Martin V12 Vantage to give me a lift over to the cargo terminal where we pass the very 747 that brought the car over.

It makes sense, but it also makes absolutely no sense, having my own car that I know from home in the UK and the trips it has done to the Nurburgring, Amsterdam Motorshow, Sardinia for the Pagani Raduno and more, yet here it is on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean. With the customs paperwork all pre-approved and the documents/insurance all in place, the car is ready to be driven on my UK number plate into New York City itself. With horrendous traffic jams hindering progress, we head via Battery Park (Statue of Liberty and Freedom Tower), Central Park and Plaza Hotel, and of course the iconic Times Square by nightfall, illuminated in style!

When the Shmee150 YouTube channel started, many of the early videos were filming cars from other locations that had been flown into London; never in my wildest dreams did I ever think that one day I'd be flying my own supercar to another continent but here we are, and it's just the start of this journey. It's a huge thanks to you all for your support up to this point, but I hope the videos are only going to get even better from here!
