2014 All Ford Day
The All Ford Day returns to the sports grounds of Deakin University in Waurn Ponds on the 16th of February in what promises to be one of the biggest All Ford Days in recent memory.
Thousands of passionate Ford supporters will ascend on the grassy fields to see in the vicinity of 1200 vehicles spread over the 25 odd acres of grassland from all eras of the Ford Motor Company’s rich history. There will be vintage vehicles, plenty of the classics from the 50’s and 60’s and a massive collection of the muscle cars of the 70’s including Mustangs, Thunderbirds and the legendary Cobra XC Hardtop through to the latest GT’ s and XR Falcons.
There are over forty trophies given out to special vehicles during the event, last year the ‘Best Overall Ford’ was won by Shane Stephenson with his magnificent 1982 XE Fairmont Ghia ESP. Some of the other categories include class trophies for each generation of Falcon, Best Mustang, Best Restoration, The William Clay Ford Perpetual Trophy awarded by a V8 Supercar Driver and many more.
With the last ever Falcon model due to hit the showrooms later this year with the much anticipated return of the XR8, the All Ford Day is a time to celebrate the rich and diverse heritage the Falcon has embedded into our country’s culture, way of life and spirit over the past half a century.
This year the event will have plenty of fun for the whole family including rides, live bands and fun entertainment from Jance the party Girl and Geelong’s favorite magician Dazzling Dan the Magic Man to name only two of the wonderful performers treating the crowds to some fun on the day. Motorsport buffs are also in for a treat with some of the biggest names in Australian motorsport coming to the 2014 All Ford Day including Bathurst legend Alan Moffat.
The 2014 All Ford Day will feature a massive trade show, here you will be able to pick up some amazing automotive memorabilia including books, souvenirs, t shirts and models. There will be parts suppliers and a wide range of interesting goods and services. You certainly won’t go hungry at the event either with plenty of choices for food from a variety of vendors located around the grounds.
If you plan to exhibit your vehicle you need to get cracking to take advantage of the great rate for pre registration and ensure you don’t miss out by just turning up on the day. Visit the All Ford Day website at www.allfordday.org.au for more information.
