All Ford Car Show. Harriston, Ontario, Canada.

Saturday August 13, 2022.

I took in the annual ALL FORD car show in the quaint town of Harriston, Ontario with my brother Mike, his wife Pam and their 62 Falcon. The towns Ford dealership Leslie Motors was the sponsor and what an amazing job they did with the whole event. I am not really a Ford guy but I really enjoyed myself the whole day. We spoke to some really amazing Ford folks and were over whelmed by all the great cars of the breed. Check out the rides. Cheers.

It explains why there were hardly any nice Fords at the downtown Orillia meet (they all went to Harriston)

Have never understood why Leslie Ford has not changed its name to Harriston Ford or Bob Falfa Motors

I wonder how many folks will catch the joke here. Very creative and I got a chuckle. Cheers.

Great looking Fords George. I'm a GM guy but I appreciate all collector cars.

The 56 Ford baby blue and white is my pick. First year of 12 volt system for Ford so they were able to add a lot of options.

Your brother's 62 Falcon looks very sharp also. Not too many around and his is in great condition.

Wonderful Ford car show and thank you for the pictures. Cheers, Mario.

George, 14th pic down on the right, light blue 2 door sedan, that's a 1965. Trust me, I wouldn't steer you wrong like some members here.

And we will just keep this little thing between us. No one ever needs to know. Pinky swear. Rob ;-)

I must agree with you Rob, that's a 65 Comet with those wraparound taillights. My cousin Frank had a 65 just like that.

Also I noticed the 49 Ford listed is really a 50 Ford with the Ford Crest on the hood, first year in 50 that Ford put it on. The 49 has the word FORD written on the hood. Also the 49 had its blinkers on the chrome piece and the 50 dropped the blinkers just above the bumper like this one.

But maybe some of the Canadian cars had a different model year than the US cars. In any case the Fords are very well kept and love seeing them. Thanks George, cheers.

George, I also see 3 different 58 Fords in one car show which here in NY are extremely rare. I've only seen one 58 Ford in 20 years of going to car shows. That's amazing, now I know where they all went! Cheers.

I checked the 1958 sales numbers and now I know why 58 Fords are scarce. Chevy sold 1,226,217 cars in 1958 where Ford only sold 987,945 cars. And 1958 was a recession year for all car manufacturers.

I have been duly corrected by you two fine gentlemen. I have made the corrections. Cheers.

Speaking of 1958 Fords. As a child I had a 1958 Ford retractable tin toy that actually was fully operational like a real life retractable. I have a photo of me with it at Christmas. That toy is now worth an absurd amount of money. Cheers.

Oh by the way for what ever it is worth. If I ever owned a Ford, it would have to be a 1956 Ford Victoria hardtop with the T Bird motor and as many original accessories as I can through at it. Cheers.

Wow George the 1956 Ford is my favorite car also! Ford finally went to 12 volts which allowed for many power options.

I remember living in Floral Park NY in 1956 and a neighbor bought a brand new 56 Ford! I was just 9 years old and thought it was the most beautiful car ever!

I still love them and the Crown Victoria is the best! Cheers, Mario.
