Ford freak photographs Fords for All Ford Show at Olathe Ford
Now Scot was a certifiable Ford freak. He always showed up to the track in his primped and pampered Ranger pickup, and he was always decked out from head-to-toe with Blue Oval and NASCAR paraphernalia. He also had a distinct bias for anything Davey Allison, Yates Racing, or Jack Roush.
Unfortunately, I couldn’t make it to the All Ford Show at Olathe Ford this weekend. But when I learned that Scot was willing to take some pictures for us, I knew we were in good hands. He even broke out a new camera (with a wicked-sweet time/date stamp), to capture the cloud-covered festivities for posterity.
There were plenty of late-model pickups to look at as well. When you’re talking about the number one-selling vehicle in the United States for like the last 526 years, you’re bound to get a good turnout at a Ford meet. There were several special edition Lightnings among the crowd, a few vintage examples, and of course, Scot’s shiny, red ride complete with Roush/Yates identification badging.
The show gave out several awards, including best-of-show, top-25, and club participation. Unfortunately, our photog didn’t bring home any hardware this time, in spite of the aching cleanliness of his truck. But if they had an award for most passionate owner, I’m pretty sure he would have dominated.
If you’re in the same boat as me, and couldn’t make it to the All Ford Show at Olathe Ford this weekend, do what I did and check out Scot’s pictures in the slideshow below.
