Fabulous Fords Forever, April 2012

Post by Krumm » Tue Mar 27, 2012 1:14 am

Since I didn't see a thread about this, I thought I'd post one.

Fabulous Fords Forever!

April 22nd at knotts berry farm, the 27th annual all Ford, Mercury, and Lincoln car show! An expected 2000 cars to attend.

I'm going to be there, all signed up already for "class 30, European/merkur" 8)
So much to do, so little money :(

Sounds fantastic. If I'm not moving or preparing to move (and it looks like my house deal, for which I am THAT close, is going to die because of stupidity on the part of the banking industry and the sellers...), I might be able to go!
This is my car, and these are my people!

I'll be there, but with my Mustang instead of the XR4Ti.

Aww but you have such a pretty xr4.

I've been curious to see your white, lx mustang.

I wish the XR looked better, it definitely needs some body work. In due time. I am considering taking some classes at the local community college, so maybe I can work on the car in the course and paint it as well.

I wish I had time to get the turbo kit on my Mustang before the show, but that just isn't going to happen, so it will still have the old Procharger on it. Next year will be a good year for it. :)

Are all the XR's going to be parked together in the show? Or is it depending on when you signed up. Im going to be there as a spectator but would hate to find all you guys separated.

Awesom day, awesome show.

I think the best part was standing by the exit while everyone was leaving. A symphony of engine sounds....

.... And boy did I get a lot of looks and comments when I was driving through the lot towards the exit
