50th

Fabulous fords forever at Knotts berry farm has been called the biggest ford show other than Carlistle Nationals. When is that new museum opening in Charlotte?

Hopefully a venue is chosen. I would attend even out of state. Seems like Cali makes sense though as its the birth state. My 2 cents. Ed.

I vote Cali, Cali, CALI. Let Denver host a High Country Special Event. Cali, Cali, Cali. By the way, the Edsel Owners Club also has events at Knott's. They just had their Edsel 60 year celebration in Dearborn. Anywhere in LA area would be great for 50 year anniversary; isn't this where most of the GT/CS's were sold? Just sayin'.......

The site of the San Jose plant is now a shopping mall. We could visit the monument though.

IIRC (if I remember correctly) the reason for selecting Denver was because it's more or less in the center of the country. For some of the members driving to California would be a long haul.

Anywhere is a long haul from Spokane so I'm good with wherever is selected

I would probably fly in to wherever and then see who had a spare seat to drive me around.

I appreciate the offer, but I was just laying around on the couch 6 weeks ago, healing up from my hand and foot surgeries, when I got offered a job I hadn't even applied for. I'm a working man again, so I wouldn't have much spare time. A long weekend is probably the best I could do, and driving 2 days each way wouldn't work.

Hi all,
I haven't chimed in here in quite awhile. Yes, I still have and occasionally drive the '68 CS!! I'm up for a west coast get together. Knott's had a great turnout for the 40th in 2008. Thinking that would be a good place to gather for the 50th.
I would consider a Colorado trip as well. Would likely trailer the car over those hills ;-) I'd drive to LA/Buena Park from SF East Bay for the FFF at Knott's. Milpitas would be easy for me ;-). But not particularly interesting in location other than the Ford Assembly Plant there is now the Great Mall. Whatever location gets decided, I'll try to be there.

I will be at FFF show at the Knott's parking lot in April and I will volunteer to park and will do my best to get all the GTCS's parked next to each other like I did in 2008 so everybody please bring your GTCS to knott's again. Shane 714/501*6768

I am the show chairman for the MCA national show July 12-15th 2018 in Lincoln NE.
We are in the center on the country so not too far for anyone. I could arrange a spot for all of the GTCS's and HCS's . I can tell you we are going to do something special for all of the 68's at the show since it is their 50th anniversary.
Here is a link to the show. https://motosho.com/event/59813623dd207

Hope to see some of you there. We all ready have two GTCSs and three HCS.
