All things FE baby, that’s what the FE Race and Reunion is all about at Beaver Springs Dragway. Thanks to Joe Grippo we’ve got tons of photos from all over the event, so check out the latest gallery right here, and use the link below if you missed any of our other galleries.
(Words and Photos by Joe Grippo) The FE Ford engine has been obviously out of production for, what, 40 plus years? Yet there is a group the hardest of hardcore devotees who once a year gather in the hills of Central Pennsylvania at a quaint little dragstrip, to celebrate all variants of this famed FoMoCo mill. From 352’s to 390’s to the mighty Cobra Jets and Cammers, plus all the other displacements were in the house, at Beaver Springs Dragway.
The FE’s were smoking the rear tires and yanking the fronts skyward for like 3 days straight! Big mid-century 60’s muscle, Fairlane’s, Mustangs and trucks filled the pits and the show field right alongside a bunch of late model Fords with the venerable big block transplanted into them. It’s truly Nirvana for Ford fanatics, it is a sight to behold. A few Ford legends who made their bones with the FE Ford were in the house and holding court. Ohio George Montgomery, Al Joniec and John Vermeersch among others were telling stories and answering questions non-stop. The swap meet was robust with blocks, heads, intakes, cranks and everything else FE related just waiting to get scarfed up for the next build.
If you even remotely dig Fords and if you own an FE, you owe it to yourself to be on the Beaver property in 2022 for the 10th (TENTH!) annual FE Race and Reunion. You will not regret it, but don’t take our word for it, check out the galleries and see for yourself.
