(Photos by Joe Grippo) – If it is the late summer/early fall in Pennsylvania than you know it is time for two things. Apple picking and Fun Ford Weekend. As it turns out, Joe Grippo sent us photos of both but we’re not going to run the apple picking photos….especially because he did it in the nude. That’s another story for another day. Today we’re looking at the first batch of his great photos from Fun Ford Weekend at Maple Grove which happened a couple weekends back. The Fun Ford Weekend program was lots like Super Chevy in the fact that it kind of went away for a little while but an enterprising group of track operators fired them back up again and it has been a great thing for “brand fans” and the race tracks that the series visits. Lots of participants, lots of stuff to do, and lots of cool cars to look at.
This collection of photos has action from the strip as well as plenty of neat stuff from the expansive show field. As you will see from the track shots, the event draws everything from heavy duty doorslammers to factory stockers that may not run incredible elapsed times but still are a joy to watch rip down the track. We have more photos to follow this batch but consider this the opening salvo to whet your Ford flavored whistle. Even if you are a Chevy guy, you’ve got to admit that there’s some neat iron to see in this gallery!
