Fabulous Fords Forever 2019

Okay, who is going this year? The event has been moved to Anaheim Stadium, and takes place on April 14, 2019. I'm registered and looking forward to it. This year I will be packing a cooler with snacks and drinks because the $16 stale hamburger, bag of chips, and 20 oz soda was no deal last year. I'll probably be arriving in Southern Calif on the evening of the 12th, prepping the car on the 13th after driving almost 500 miles from southern AZ, and then off to the show on Sunday.

Anyone else?

I'm headed there as well! I can't wait to see the new venue. Supposedly spectator parking will also be much easier this year which makes it easy for the crowd coming to check out the cars. I heard that Ford will also do ride-along drives in some new vehicles they are bringing.

I am attending, but not with my car as it isnít roadworthy for some time. I have family flying in from Washington State and Montana to attend. The show is becoming a semi-regular family gathering.

Yes! I'll be bringing the Mustang and am really looking forward to this show. I had to miss it last year as there was just way too much going on at the time but everything looks good to attend this time around.

I live in San Clemente, so while it's a bit of a haul I know I'll get no sympathy from those coming from AZ and further!

Where did you live while in OC?

Hey Keith--I saw your car at the LA Classic Autoshow a few weeks ago but didn't see you there. Hopefully we'll bump into each other at FFF.

Lee - you might want to check in with the Stangfix guys (the crew I hang with at HAN) - a bunch of them typically congregate there every year. There has been some confusion this year over where everyone should stay and what events to pursue over the weekend (besides the show) since it's been moved.

I'd like to make it out but it's the same weekend as the TXVMF Bluebonnet Cruise and also the Lone Star Roundup here, so I'll be staying in the Lone Start State You'll have to let me know how the new venue turns out!


Calamity Jane 1966 Modified Fastback - Driven semi-daily!
Wrecked and rebuilt even better
289 v8, 4-speed, 3.25 9" rear, goodies and stuff.

See my travel blog here for my adventures: http://mapandamustang.blogspot.com/
Over 50,000 miles of North American roads driven on road trips since 2014. More always in the works - stay tuned!

When I show up at a car show and my car is covered in mud, it's probably because I drove 2000 miles to get there

It's a long (1 mile) drive for me . I might take my '66 Shelby as so few real ones show up anymore.

Bring it! I definitely would like to see it. I spend more time looking at the classic cars than the "used car lot" of the 2005+ Mustang section.

I'll be headed out to Anaheim in about 15 minutes and will be parked with the 65/66 Mustangs. Come over and say "hello" if you get a chance.
