Held over Father’s Day weekend every year, the Rock and Roll Father’s Day Classic car show is a treat for all auto enthusiasts. This is the biggest car show in Western Nebraska and is set in the city of Gering. This year, we sent out a photographer to grab pictures of some of the coolest Fords at the show. Here are some of the highlights.
This Custom 1956 Ford F-100 was the perfect first stop at the show. It traveled to the show from Aurora, Colorado and was quite the stunner.
- Audi door latches and the removal of the outside door handles
- Power windows, mirrors, and hood latch
- Six-way power seats with lumbar support
- Tilt steering column
- Cruise control
- 12 speaker, 2,000 watt sound system with CD changers
- Hidden tailgate latches and trailer hitch
- Built on a 1975 Camaro front sub-frame with 1977 Seville spindles and disc brakes
This unique truck has a S-10 bed with ’56 Ford fenders grafted on side panels
It also has an LT1 engine with a very custom air intake system.
This 1953 F-100 with a unique flat bed was quite a site.
And so was this awesome 1976, F-100 Style Side.
It wasn’t all trucks, however.
This 1973 Ford Bronco represented the first generation of this extremely popular model by Ford.
A breath-taking 1966 Ford Cobra was one of the main attractions.
Showing its massive headers and side pipes, this 427 monster may have been one of the faster vehicles in attendance.
Also in the mix was a maroon red 1931 Model A.

There were also a few impressive roadsters in attendance.
A 1956 Ranch Wagon shows us that classic family cars were once just as cool as the muscle cars of the time.
Finally, a green 1963 Falcon Ranchero with matching green dice was apparently handing out candy to passing admirers.
It’s shows like these that bring us back to our roots as auto enthusiasts. They feature the best of the past and offer us a way to teach a new generation about the vehicles that inspired us to become gear-heads.
