Fabulous Fords Forever

If You Love Fords, This Is A Show You’ll Want To Attend

We’ve been to some big car shows over the years, but the Fabulous Fords Forever show in Anaheim, California, takes the prize for the most impressive outpouring of single-brand loyalty we’ve ever seen for its sheer ability to pack a ton of awesome cars into a very short day. How many other shows do you know that can attract 1,500-plus cars to a five-hour show in a parking lot on a Sunday afternoon? Registration is sold out a month in advance, and they don’t even have a drag race, a swap meet, or a manufacturers’ midway! Held annually at Knott’s Berry Farm for the past 16 years, Fabulous Fords has one thing going for it that most others don’t: full backing and promotion from Ford Motor Company. That’s impressive, as are the scope and quality of cars that show up.

Needless to say, there were a few Mustangs in attendance—along with a few Shelbys, a couple of Fairlanes, Thunderbirds, Falcons, and Galaxies. Oh yeah, there were also some trucks and Model Ts, but we pretty much ignored them. If Ford made it, no matter how rare, there will probably be at least one example present. If you love Fords, this is a show you’ll want to attend at least once in a blue moon. For info on next year’s show, contact Fabulous Fords Forever at P.O. Box 2086, Downey, CA 90242, 562/862-9311, www.fordcarclubs.org.
