Looking through the photos from the 10th anniversary Classic Ford Show, it’s not hard to see why this is the premier event on the classic Ford calendar — it’s just so damned big!
As a one-day celebration of the great and the good of the European old Ford scene, it’s got everything bar the kitchen sink, yet judging by the feedback that poured in straight after the show, next year you want it even bigger and busier! We’ll aim to do that, and plans are already in place, but first we need to catch up on some lost sleep. We’re not the only ones — at least two of the cars that took part in The Great Unveiling, were finished literally hours before the show, with not much shut-eye going on in the week leading up to the show.
The owners loved the challenge, though, even more so when they saw the reaction from the crowds as the cars were revealed. Reckon you’ve got what it takes to take part in next year’s unveiling?
Enjoy the mag.
