BIRCH RUN, Mich. – Just like all across the nation since the global Coronavirus pandemic struck early this year, Ford Performance enthusiasts in Michigan had been waiting most of the summer for the chance to bring out their vehicles for a car show gathering of any kind. Finally, by late July, Ford owners of all models and years were given an opportunity to drive their prized rides to attend the Ford Car Show, powered by LaFontaine Ford of Birch Run, Michigan, and the LaFontaine Automotive Group. While masked up, socially distanced and sanitized were the rules of the day, owners and attendees seemed more than happy to comply.Mustangs lined up at LaFontaine Ford

The mid-Michigan Ford dealership had invited Blue Oval enthusiasts to fill the store’s large front parking lot with Mustangs, Broncos, Galaxies and more on a fine Tuesday evening from 5-7 p.m. LaFontaine Ford provided free sandwiches and sodas, and even opened their showroom late for show-goers to browse the latest from the Ford vehicle lineup, including a few of the new ST line vehicles. Corporate Ford was also invited to the show and rolled in with several specialty vehicles, including a 2006 Heritage Edition Ford GT, three 2020 Shelby GT500 Mustangs in various colors, a High Performance EcoBoost Mustang, and the 10-millionth Mustang.GT500 Mustangs lined up

For many of the attendees we talked to, the LaFontaine Ford Car Show in Birch Run marked the first time they had brought their collectible Ford to a show, cruise-in or automotive event of any kind this year, and provided much-needed relief from quarantine.
