This event has become a long-standing tradition in the Southern California car culture.  It celebrates the many varied Ford, Lincoln, and Mercury vehicles from 1903 to the current models.  The location was the huge Knott’s Berry Farm parking lot, large enough space for these 1,800 entries, plus vendors and sponsors.

There were 58 show car classes, music, stage interviews, a great Ford display, show sponsors, celebrities and more!

Every year this event celebrates Ford product milestones.  This year they celebrated 115 years of Ford Motor Co. and the Model T,  90 years of the Model A,  70 years of the F-Series Truck,  60 years of the Edsel,  and 50 years of the Cobra Jet.
