River View Ford Hosts “Huge Tent Event” With First Annual Car Show

July 2nd, 2013 by

Huge Tent EventFrom June 5th through June 10th, Plainfield and Naperville area drivers had the unique opportunity to stop in and exchange their vehicles for above market value while also taking advantage of special savings on new and used vehicles. The “Huge Tent Event” culminated with a grand community celebration with food, music, and prize raffles at River View Ford’s First Annual Classic Car Show, showcasing some of Ford’s most beloved vehicles.

The classic car show took place on Friday and Saturday, June 7th and 8th, and included a special guest appearance of the infamous V8 Club on Friday. The Ford V8 Club is comprised of dedicated Ford enthusiasts who recognize all Ford automobiles manufactured between 1932 and 1953 and strive to restore and preserve classic Ford vehicles that carry 4, 6, 8, or 12 cylinder engines. Friday’s events included prize raffles and food and drink, while live music was present for the festivities on Saturday.

Over 60 cars dating from 1930 to 2011 made an appearance at the classic car show and were enjoyed by both the young and old, kids and grandparents alike, who came out for this community wide event. A couple of the favorite classics displayed were the Shelby Mustang and the Galaxie 500XL.

This first annual car show was a huge success, and we look forward to an even more exciting event next year! Stay tuned to our River View Ford Facebook Page for the most up-to-date information on our upcoming community events and sales specials.
