With its recent release to customers and dealerships across the country, Ford will feature its all-new 2011 Fiesta at New York Comic Con throughout the weekend. Conference goers will have the opportunity to test drive the vehicle throughout the conference, as well as take part in Ford-related activities at the event. Convention goers will also have the opportunity to enter a raffle for the chance to win one of two copies of the final issue of Ex Machina signed by creator Brian K. Vaughn after participating in Ford activities.
