If Ford built it, there's a good chance you'll find one at the Fabulous Fords Forever Show in sunny Southern California. Now in its 27th year, the event at Knott's Berry Farm Amusement Park is the largest all-Ford show on the West Coast, and the Blue Oval pride stretched far beyond even the rarest of Mustangs. Sure there are Ponies from all years--modern to vintage and ordinary to uncommon--but there are far more fabulous Fords. From Falcons, Model Ts, and Galaxies, to Crown Vics, and even Saleen S7s and Lightnings, chances are good you'll run across a Ford of every type, even the Pinto.

Although it included up to the current 2013 lineup, the 2012 event was full of big celebrations as it marked the 50th anniversary of the Cobra, the 80th of the legendary '32 Ford, and the centennial mark of the 1912 Model T. Ford also raised its glass to the sale of the 1,000,000 Mustang.

FoMoCo brought a host of 2013 Mustangs, a Taurus SHO, several tricked-out F150s, and even the hot new Focus ST. Enthusiasts were treated to autograph sessions with the John Force Racing family and fabulous Linda Vaughn, along with the special treat of seeing Force's latest Funny Car up close and personal. If that wasn't enough, the Saleen crew was also in attendance, as was Molly Saleen in her signature Molly Pop Pink Mustang.

Roush and Shelby were also representin' with their latest project vehicles and go-fast parts, as were other industry greats like Galpin Auto Sports, including the wild widebody cars from Forgiato.

But the Fabulous Fords Show is far beyond just a solid vendor showing--it's all about Ford pride. No matter what model hits your fancy, there's at least one on hand for your viewing pleasure. From 1903 Model Ts and ultra-rare drag cars like the Thunderbolts of the '60s, to modern muscle from the Fox-body through the current S197, it's all there.

If ever you find yourself on the West Coast in early spring, make it a point to checkout the Fabulous Fords Forever Show. There's nothing like seeing virtually every Ford model from the past 100 years packed into one venue-- consider it mandatory for any Blue-Oval aficionado.
