About 1200 Fords from across the country will line the grounds of Waurn Ponds Estate on Sunday in celebration Geelong’s rich history with the company.
The 27th All Ford Day would again be a popular event for motoring enthusiasts from far and wide, said the show’s director Scott Pigdon
“The All Ford Day has secured its position as one of the largest car displays in Australia, and continues to grow each year,” he said.
“Last year we saw a massive range of beautiful cars at the event, and we’ve already had some stunning vehicles sign up for the upcoming 2018 event.”
The festival encapsulated the rich Ford history that Geelong had been a part of for more than 90 years, and the workmanship locals put into the cars, he said.
“Despite the closure of the Geelong facilities in late 2016, the All Ford Day still serves as a meeting place for old colleagues, car and motoring enthusiasts alike, as well as those who have invested in and appreciate the Ford brand.”
Owners of Fords spanning a century of production will compete for trophies in 50 different prize categories throughout the day.
More than 100 motor enthusiasts registered their vehicles for the show in the first three days of entries opening.
The show runs from 8am to 3pm on 10 hectares of grassland, surrounded by beautiful trees and lakes.
Deakin University will offer free parking at its Waurn Ponds campus for the event.
Tickets can be purchased online at the All Ford Day website or on the day at the event.
