An amazing array of Blue Oval beauties.

July 2004

This year’s “Fabulous Fords Forever!” car show held in a parking lot at the Knott’s Berry Farm amusement park in Buena Park, California, had special significance as 2004 marks a couple of Ford milestones: It is the 40th anniversary for one of the most treasured and beloved cars of all time — the Ford Mustang. It’s also the 65th birthday of the Mercury brand. And with over 2000 cars in attendance, fans of Lincoln, Mercury and especially Ford had plenty to look at. And Mustang fans benefited most of all — not only was the next-generation 2005 car on display but a member of a Southern California Mustang club told me at the event that there were over 1100 Mustangs in total on display this year!

Here is sampling of some of the cars that caught our interest at this year’s event. Included in the mix along with the Cobras and Mustangs are exquisite Ford models from all eras. Enjoy!


Ford-powered Cobras, real or replica, are among the all-time most exhilarating sports cars to drive.


…actually, it’s a Daytona Coupe replica by Superformance, and it’s designed by the same man who penned the original, Peter Brock.


Superformance says their machine will go 0-60 in 3.5 seconds and do the quarter mile in 11.5 seconds. Make it yours for $63,800.


Flame-broiled, not fried: A tricked-out Ford Expedition.


The next-generation 2005 Mustang was constantly surrounded by show goers who had nothing but good things to say about the new pony car


The retro look of the 2005 Mustang works from any angle.


A 1970 Mustang Mach 1.


A 1969 Mustang convertible.

My first car was a 67 Mustang Coupe, 2nd one was a 67 Cougar XR-7, 3rd one was a 66 Mustang Coupe. Why did I get rid of these cars for ? I know why, because I'm stupid, stupid, stupid.

My next Ford.....

A mint 1982 Mustang GT.


Saleen Mustang.


A rare 1949 Mercury Commuter Wagon – only 1 of every 150 or so built were of the 2-door variety…


A 1964 Ford Fairlane “Thunderbolt”…


…and its dual-carb, 427-cu.-in. V-8 — good for a whopping 425 horsepower!


This 1909 Model T Touring is quickly approaching its 100th birthday.


Woodie wagons, like this 1940 model, are always a crowd favorite.

A variety of nice hot rods was on display, including this very tidy ’32 Ford.


Check out the monster engine and blower on this yellow rod.


A seemingly endless stream of immaculate Thunderbirds from the 1950s.


Vintage Broncos were also out in force in great numbers.


The front clip from a Lincoln Navigator (or maybe even the short-lived Blackwood) really looks great grafted onto an F-Series pickup.


Scissor-doors and a carbon-fiber hood make for one wild F150.


The Saleen N20 Focus: A Saleen 2.3-liter four, nitrous system and stylish bodywork – yours for $25,774.
