For those who love Ford automobiles, the Carlisle Ford Nationals 2015 which runs from June 5th through 7th, is an event that you should not miss. Billed as “the most thrilling all-Ford event in the world,” attendees will get to come up close to some of the most exciting Ford cars in existence, and be treated to a show of Ford concept cars, customs, classics, and more. There will be seminars, test-drives, and everything a gear-head could want out of an event.

True Ford enthusiasts will be able to see the Ford GT40, the original 60s LeMans winning vehicle that has fired up many car designer’s imagination, and copycat colour schemes ever since its impressive debut. They’ll also have every incarnation of Ford GT, in every colour scheme for visitors to drool over (as well, the designer of the car Camilo Pardo will be there signing autographs and attending seminars). Own a GT? You can get specific work done to your car right there at the show by the GT Guys LLC, who specialize in service, modifications, installations and repair.

Of course it isn’t all about the GTs, there’s a Thunderbird display, and the historic Freddy Lorenzen race car will be on display, as well as plenty of other vintage autos. There’ll be plenty of new cars there too, and visitors will be amongst the first people in the world to lay eyes on the new Ford Focus RS, as well as various other soon to be released trucks and autos.

The Carlisle Ford Nationals 2015 is a family friendly event, offering a range of kids activities that are perfect for when the little ones have had enough of their parents excitement for automobiles, and there is a Women’s Oasis targeted at ladies who need a break but also a Girl’s Auto-Clinic for those who are just as into their cars as the guys are. There’s also a huge vendor market, and concessions. If you’re hoping to leave the event with an actual automobile, then touring the car corral will whet your whistle and hopefully see you leaving with the car of your dreams.

Throw in a beauty pageant, workshops, car club meets and dozens of other neat features and there you have plenty of reasons why this is such a cherished event for Ford lovers. What’s not to love?
