English Fords to be featured at major MidWest show in 2013

Post by GTEstate » Mon Oct 01, 2012 10:49 am

English Fords are to be featured as the Rare Gem marque at the 2013 Mad Dogs & Englishmen show in Hickory Corners, Michigan. The show will be held on July 7th, 2013, amongst the historic barns of the Gilmore Car Museum near Kalamazoo (http://www.gilmorecarmuseum.org/) and under the auspices of the Mad Dogs and Englishmen car club (http://www.maddogsandenglishmen.org/).

It's a fun show in a great location, so for all you Midwestern EnFo owners, pencil in the date and let's see how many different models we can get!

Where did you get the info of Engllsh Fords being featured as "rare gem" ?

The Gilmore website says the featured marque is MG and the "Mad Dogs & Englishmen" website, while showing this event on their cal makes no mention of English Fords at all.

Thnx,

I dropped by today, but today's car show was already over, at 4:00pm
But I THINK I saw a light blue 100e on a trailer on my way there leaving the show.

Sorry everybody

The Gilmore Car Museum posted some photos from the Mad Dogs and Englishmen show.

Looks like there was at least 1 105E Anglia and a couple Capris in the Rare Gem category

We ended up with six English Fords for this year's Rare Gem category: three Capris, a 105E Anglia, a Consul and a Mark 1 Cortina. Not a bad turnout, so thanks to those who brought their cars. I know I had a blast driving across Michigan on virtually empty roads.
