It seems like just yesterday I was chasing Matt Farah down Route 684 in upstate New York as he piloted his 600 hp 1965 Copper Cobra replica with the NY license plate that read, “MAKEUPOO”. That was back when Matt was well… just Matt. Since then the gote’d man with the uber-chops from Westchester, NY has made quite a name for himself in the automotive industry. First with the internet show Garage419, then with a radio show on Sirius Satellite Radio called RPM (which yours truly co-hosted by the way), then came The Smoking Tire, a TV pilot for SPEED TV with Adam Carolla called “The Car Show” (which will hopefully air soon) and now a Superbowl commercial for the Ford Focus Rally for which he is a participant. Matt’s not only a good guy, but he knows his shit, is great on camera and has a media personality that people just gravitate to. Seeing him on the Super Bowl’s pregame show made me shake my head, giggle and feel proud at the same time. Our little Matt Farah is all grown-up now and taking on the world… now I’m just curious as to what he’s going to do next. Click through to see Matt’s Ford Focus Rally Super Bowl Spot.
