Each year, Knott's Berry Farm opens its gates to Ford enthusiasts from all over the country for the largest Ford-only show on the West Coast- Fabulous Fords Forever, which marked its 26th year. The 2011 show was full of history and heritage as it celebrated the 40th anniversary of the Pantera and Pinto, and also the 45th anniversary of the Bronco and 50th anniversary of the Econoline.
Ford rolled out a massive display to show off its newest vehicles, and also paid homage to its racing background. Parnelli Jones was on hand to meet with and sign autographs for fans and enthusiasts, who also had a chance to see Parnelli's original Boss 302 from his '70 championship Trans-AM season.
Away from the main display area, Roush, Shelby American, and SMS Supercars all had displays full of its newest Mustangs for attendees to check out. Your author even had a chance to spend some time with Carroll Shelby and Steve Saleen during lunch at the show.
Nearly 2,000 Fords and Mustangs were on display for the Saturday show in early April. Late-model muscle mixed with classic iron made for an incredible sight. From '12 Boss Mustangs to Model Ts from 1903, there was something for every Ford enthusiast. If you have the chance, we highly recommend checking it out!
