2016 All Ford Day
What has become the largest annual display of Ford vehicles in Australia and one of the greatest in the world, the world the Kiwanis All Ford Day returns to the parkland of Deakin University for 2016.
With 2016 seeing the end of local manufacturing in Australia, with Ford transforming to a Research and Development operation and importer, this year’s All Ford Day will have special significance. It is expected over 1200 for vehicles will be on display with over 30 car clubs from Victoria and further displaying vehicles that will represent every era of the Ford Motor Company from the Model T to the latest and greatest FGX Falcons and Mustangs.
There are over 40 awards given out during the event including the most sought after William Clay Ford Perpetual Trophy for Best Overall Ford. Last year the award went to Peter Rujanoski for his incredible 1973 Lime Glase XA GT Sedan. He also took out the Rare Spares Real Restoration Award for the vehicle along with the trophy for Best GT Falcon XA-XB.
The All Ford Day is organised by the Kiwanis Club of Geelong who use the event as a major fund raiser for local charities and projects around the Geelong Region.
The day will feature several autograph sessions where you can meet some of the big names of Ford motor racing including a few Ford racing legends and some current V8 Supercar stars.
There will be lots of entertainment for the kids including some great tricks from Dazzling Dan the Magic Man and Janice the Party Girl. There will be dozens of trade stalls featuring all sorts of auto related items and memorabilia. There will also be plenty of places where you can get something tasty for lunch with a whole array of food trucks and trailers.
Show cars start arriving at Deakin’ s Waurn Ponds Campus around 7:00 AM and the event is open to the public from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM.
