DEARBORN - There’s no better way to forget about all the ice and snow of winter than to plan a trip to Florida and attend a great all-Ford car show. That’s why you should be making plans now to get down to The Sunshine State on Saturday, February 24, 2018, to be part of the 31st Annual Mustang and Ford Roundup in beautiful Longwood, Florida. There, the Mid-Florida Mustang Club will be hosting the show in Historic Downtown Longwood from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Registration ($25) is from 7:30-9:30 a.m. Proceeds benefit two local charities – Longwood Citizens on Patrol (COPS) and the Longwood Community Emergency Response Team (CERTS) – so the annual Mustang Roundup is all for a good cause. We hope to see you there!
Are you planning to be in the Detroit area that same weekend instead? Then you should plan to see a special tribute going on at the Automotive Hall of Fame in Dearborn for the late Roy Lunn, known as the “Godfather of the Ford GT40.” During his 40-year automotive career, Lunn designed a prolific array of vehicles including postwar sports cars, radical concept cars and trucks, iconic racing machines, four-wheel-drive SUVs and even military transports. In 2016, he was inducted into the Automotive Hall of Fame for his contributions to automobile engineering. The Roy Lunn exhibit at the AHoF in Dearborn runs through April 12, 2018.

No matter what you decide you’d like to do with your free time, the great thing about owning a performance Ford is that – unlike with buying one of those “appliances” from the other automakers – when you buy a Ford, you buy into an entire enthusiast world! That’s because Ford cars and trucks have the kind of personality and style that forges a personal connection with their owners, who in turn celebrate ownership each year at hundreds of enthusiast events all over the country.
