2018 Car Show and Customer Appreciation Event Boasts Classic Cars, Raises Money for Charity

2018 Car Show and Customer Appreciation Event

From the Outside Looking In: Classic Cars and A Whole Lot of Fun!

On August 11, we had a fun day in the sun, centered on the things we love most here at Friendly Ford: cars and people. Our annual Car Show & Customer Appreciation Day started at 9 AM and finished up at 3 PM.

Around 700 people made it out to the car show that boasted 150 individual cars from old to new. These included Model A’s, Model T’s, modern-day vehicles and even some motorcycles.

Besides excellent cars, we also had a grill-out. For the whole event, we grilled 700 hot dogs. All food and beverages were free to our attendees. In return, we asked for donations toward Phil’s Friends in Roselle from people who were able and willing to make donations.

Phil’s Friends is a faith-based nonprofit organization, founded by two-time cancer survivor Phil Zielke, “committed to bringing support and hope to those affected by cancer in the United States.”

The Car Show and Customer Appreciation event came and went like a Ford Mustang going from 0-to-60 mph, and we are already looking forward to next year’s event.

Besides all who attended and the ones who provided the classic cars for the show, we’d like to thank Chris Bryan and his from State Farm, Phil’s Friends, and the Roselle Police Department.

Friendly Ford Shows Customer Appreciation with Car Show

Friendly Ford of Roselle recently hosted their first annual Car Show and Customer Appreciation Day on August 11th, 2012. The folks at Friendly Ford combined vintage and classic cars with free food and Rock & Roll tunes to show their gratitude for their customers and community. The car show had a great turn-out with more than 100 different cars participating.

The car show had no fee, but there were raffles on site with proceeds going to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure for breast cancer research.

Classes were designed to accommodate Ford and non-Ford cars by the decade, but there were specific classes for Fords as well. The Ford-specific classes included Model T, Thunderbird, Lincoln, and Mercury, as well as a special class for Mustangs. A class for motorcycles was also available. Awards were given for Best in Show and Dealer’s Choice, with plaques given to the first 50 winners

Everyone at Friendly Ford appreciates the support from their customers and looks forward to seeing everyone back next year!
