In 2016, Aaron and Carl Vaccar attended Formula Drift in Orlando, representing the Ford Performance brand alongside an all-new Ford Focus RS and Mustang GT350. This year, Vaccar is planning to return to the Ford display, but with one of their own creations; the Blood & Grease Ford Focus ST. The action-packed event will hit florida this weekend, April 28 and 29th. For more info about the race, visit their website at www.formulad.com.
Vaccar has been invited to display one of our specialty vehicles at SeaWorld's all-new "Seven Seas Food Festival" this Spring. The event series is all about concerts, food, and fun - and now, with the added element of a custom car showcase!
Attendees can sip and simple their way around the world via the culinary marketplaces, and end the day with live performances from top country, rock and latin music artists every Saturday. In the midst of all the action, the Vaccar-designed Blood & Grease Focus ST will be 1 or 10 automotive masterpieces placed within the amusement park on the April 22nd weekend date.
