Ford fans all revved up as models rolled out for big display

By Ian Bushnell - 17 October 2017 4

Thousands of Ford fans rolled into the Queanbeyan Showground on Sunday to check out their favourite historic, classic and new model cars with the familiar blue badge.

The Capital All Ford Day also featured 29 different stalls and displays, including NSW Police (along with NSW Historical Police Vehicles and the ACT Policing Museum), event sponsors Shannon’s Insurance and John McGrath Ford Woden, and a huge variety of car parts, accessories and services businesses.

Staged by the Ford Performance Club of the ACT, fans could inspect cars from the classic Model Ts to the final-model Falcons that rolled off the assembly line last year.

Representatives from The Royal Australian Mint were also on site, selling a limited number of the newly released Ford Australia Classic Collection.

All proceeds from the day were shared evenly between Camp Quality and the ACT Eden Monaro Cancer Support Group.

Local photographer Jack Mohr was on site to capture all the action.

Some of those cars are so low they are a joke. Plus they must be illegal. What good is a car that can’t drive (legally) on a road? They would hit every bump on the road. I once watched the trouble a low car (and it wasn’t as low as some in those photographs) had getting around a speed bump. It was giggle worth.

These type of custom adaptions are called “lowriders”. Very popular in some parts of the USA.

Thanks Ian for the write up, and to Jack Mohr for the photos. Am a Ford type from way back when my Dad had a customline .

I intended to waltz in but for some reason the Cooma Street oval entrance was not open for parking, and regret my bung knee(s) won’t allow me to waltz all that far. Again thanks for the piccys.

I saw the 1974 Ford Transit camper-van conversion (Highlander) about 15 years ago just after the then owner had fitted it with a Holden 3.8L V-6 petrol engine to it so it could get up hills.

It should called a “Folden”.
