Back in 1977 several individual Ford based car clubs felt there was a need to hold a combined show n shine day and celebrate all things Ford. The Combined Ford Clubs (CFC) of New South Wales was formed with delegates from each of the participating clubs responsible for the running of the very first All Ford Day.
The day has been held annually ever since and has grown steadily to be one of the largest shows of its type in the Southern Hemisphere.
The All Ford Day is historically held on the last Sunday in July and was chosen so as to be as close as possible to Henry Ford's actual birth date of the 30th of July (1863). For many years the Peter Warren Ford dealership was a major supporter of the All Ford Day with the event held at their Warwick Farm yard.
The show outgrew this venue and moved across the Hume Hwy to the Warwick Farm Racecouse for several years.
The Combined Ford Clubs of New South Wales has also grown along with the show and now comprises of 18 Ford Clubs catering to all models of Fords, from the very first Model T's and Model A's to the English designed Fords like Anglias and Prefects, American models such as the Mustang and Galaxie and of course all the different models of Falcon too.
From the beginning the CFC has always encouraged Ford owners and their families to participate in the event, quite often calling it the All Ford Family Day. Money raised from the event has been donated to charity. Over the years thousands of dollars have been donated to the Children's Hospital Westmead for example.
More recently the Eastern Creek International Raceway has hosted the event where the family friendly tradition continues, and with the continued financial support from major sponsors like Ford Australia, Meguiars and Shannons, the All Ford Day remains a "not to be missed" event for all Ford fans.
