All Ford Day
The All Ford Day Show is being held on the 5th November 2017 at Bassendean Oval and entry will be from the east via Old Perth Road only.

The show is open to only Ford Motor vehicles running Ford mechanicals. It is a great day out with most Ford clubs in the Perth region having cars on display and there is a large collection of non-club vehicles as well. Entrants drive in from Geraldton, Kalgoorlie, Albany, Bunbury and other country areas just to put their cars on show for the West Aussie public to enjoy.

You will find vehicles from the very early days of Ford right through to the latest offerings. There are cars from all corners of the globe and they range from standard street cars to custom street machines, hot rods. Fully restored, partiially restored and race cars.

If you love Fords you will find something of interest at the All Ford Day Show.
