Read All Ford Day in geelong

Ok just a quick summary. It was the first time I went to an event like this. And my impression is....WOW I have never seen so many Fords in one place. It was great, there was an awesome variety of Fords on display. There were tons of Mustangs (awesome), Old GT's, XY, XA/B/C/D/F, AU's (even a TE50 rated at 350kw for sale, apparently worked on by herrods). The BA GT was there, there were a few BA XR8's there and my god do they have a presence. Also have to mention there were many a cars with work done to them by Rob Herrord and jeez did they look the treat, great work Rob. I have taken a few pics but i need to get them developed, but as soon i do I will post them. So who else from here went? How did it compare to previous years? Just a short note to say thanx to the organisers for a great day, even on the way out patrons behaved themselves. Good to see.

How good did that GT look!!...and those strips ARE awesome, they really suited the colour (yellow car with black strips).

Ass for the behaviour....well you should see a normal uni day...lol..nah seriously I have never seen so many cars lined up nera the entrance. Man an EF did a top burnout!

I didn't see any other FF cars there though..but it was good.

yeah that GT looked hot, Dad is now thinking between a GT or a TS50 (personally i would go the TS).

hehe yeah normal uni behaviour i bet. I remember at swinny in lilydale how many times we raced around lilydale in an AU2 hehe. yeah i was hoping to see a couple of FF cars.

Compared to previous years it was much better in my opinion.
The previous site at the Geelong racecourse was to crowded,trying to fit to many cars in a restricted area,was very dusty and all the cars were under trees.
Also a much bigger turnout than normal,and i agree with your comment about the presence of the BA XR8s, they are one tough looking motor car.
