Enthusiasts Encouraged to Show off Their Ford Products
Ford is looking for classic vehicles from all of their brands - Ford, Lincoln, Mercury, Mazda, Volvo, Land Rover, Jaguar, and Aston Martin - for display during the 100th Anniversary Celebration. The vehicle display selection process is now underway and the response has been outstanding. Once you purchase ticketsyou'll be sent a vehicle application for the opportunity to display your vehicle alongside some of the fantastic vehicles that have already been chosen. Among the most notable are:

  • Greg Montgomery of Huber Heights, Ohio
    He'll display a very rare 1969 Torino Talladega featured on "American Muscle Car"

  • Rick Schmidt of Orlando, Florida
    Will show his Honolulu blue 1956 Continental Mark II -- not only is this vehicle an Amelia Island Award winner, it was once owned by William Clay Ford, Sr.

  • Rick Carnegie of Otis Richards, Washington
    His very rare 1907 Model N Ford will also be on display.

  • Jason Mobley of Navarre, Florida
    His newly restored and never shown before 1973 XA Falcon will debut this summer.

  • Robert Green of Chesapeake, Virginia
    His 1978 Lincoln Mark V Diamond Jubilee Custom, which was purchased new and kept in excellent condition (with only 1,259 miles!) specifically for display at Ford's 100th Anniversary Event.

  • Keith and Paula Gattis from Livonia, Michigan
    The proud owners of a 1931 35B sold new in Denmark will also be there.
