Classic Fords Rock Father's Day Show

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.

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.
