Ken Ford (violinist)
LouisKen Ford lived in DetroitMichigan before his parents moved with their only child to make their permanent home in Atlanta, Georgia. After trying numerous instruments, at the age of nine Ford settled on the violin.[HOONIGAN] Chris Harris on Ken Block's Gymkhana SEVEN AWD 1965 Mustang (The Hoonicorn!)
In his Atlanta school years, he trained classically on the violin, with training from various members of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, and became a founding member of the DeKalb Youth Pops Orchestra. Growing up hearing different genres, Ford also followed his father's footsteps for a time as a DJ, and counts Stevie Wonder and pioneering violinists Noel Pointer and Jean-Luc Ponty among his musical influences. At his mother's urging to pursue education with a backup career path, Ford also completed a degree in Computer Information Systems.
With his passion for the violin and increasing success as an artist, he decided to make the leap full-time to music after finding himself unemployed in the mid 90s. Following the leap into music and pursuing electric violin full speed ahead, Ford has also taken the sound of strings to another level from edgy and funky to contemporary, on stage and into the recording studio with a range of superstar artists including Bruno Mars, Chaka Khan, Ledisi, Lalah Hathaway, Wyclef Jean, Maxwell, Cee Lo Green and more.

The need to travel backwards with all four wheels spinning forwards comes from the Gymkhana trilogy, a YouTube franchise so successful it trounces all other car-based material. As I write this, Gymkhana 3 alone has logged over 19 million views, and it was only posted three months ago. Boy did they go to town. From a 2-litre Duratec-based motor, they saw bhp on race day.
The stars had aligned themselves in hoon-land. First, it looked like a Fiesta, a car that Ford was trying to push in the US.
It's Ken Block's 1,400bhp Hoonicorn Mustang V2!
And second, well, it would go backwards at a-lot-of-mph with all four wheels spinning in a forwards direction. Team Block said there would be a chance to drive it in LA in early December. I hate flying enough to have never visited the west coast before, but the horror of row 62 on a is worth it when I hit the starter button. This is the full DTM-style driving position and since Mr Block never intended for anyone else to drive it, the Recaro is fixed.
Since I am somewhat shorter than Ken, this constitutes something of a problem.
Five minutes later, with the padding from the passenger seat behind my back, I can at least reach the steering wheel. The controls are simple. Toggle-on, press the starter, pull the carbon gear-paddle back to go up the gearbox, push it away WRC-style to go back down. In the centre of the dash, where there should be a nice digital clock, there now sits a large gear indicator. This looks like a sop to cinematography, but bhp will soon change that opinion.
