Thursday, May 28, 2009
The Carlisle All-Ford Nationals, held June 5-7th at the Carlisle PA Fairgrounds, is the largest All-Ford event in the world, demonstrating the strength and passion of Blue Oval enthusiasts. The All-Ford Nationals will attract Ford, Lincoln and Mercury enthusiasts displaying vehicles ranging from high-performance new models to vintage Model-Ts. Special features and displays for this year’s event include a Ford GT reunion, a display celebrating 45 years of Mustangs, a Montego GT reunion and a 1959 Anniversary celebration with a focus on the retractable Skyliners. Ford Motor Company will also be on hand all weekend with the Ford DRIVE ONE Tour, The Mustang Garage, Monster Jam driver Linsey Weenk and the Built-Ford Tough Blue Thunder Monster Truck, a collection of the newest Ford and Lincoln-Mercury models for their test drive sessions, and much more.
“In a tough climate for the ‘Big Three’ domestic car makers, we couldn’t be more excited to have Ford Motor Company stepping up their presence here at the All-Ford Nationals.” Rick Markko, All-Ford Nationals Event Manager continues, “Ford will be taking over the Carlisle Expo Center just a block and a half from the fairgrounds with test drives and their DRIVE ONE Tour, free and open to the public.” In addition to the increased participation from Ford Motor Company, the All-Ford Nationals will see a boost in the participation from Ford supercars in the way of a Ford GT reunion. Ford GTs are mid-engine supercars produced from 2005-2006 that celebrate Ford’s long history in racing and have a passionate following in the collector car world. The All-Ford Nationals Ford GT Reunion is likely to be one of, if not the largest, GT gatherings on the East Coast. Prototypes, race cars, special one-of–a-kind models and many of the engineers and designers of the GT will be on hand all weekend. The weekend is sure to live up to its name as ‘The Ford Family Reunion’ with activities, displays and special events throughout the weekend for all members of the Ford family.
