Hundreds Of Car Lovers Expected At All Ford Show

Fans of Mustangs, Falcons, and Torinos are expected to come out in the hundreds to the 23rd annual All Ford Show tomorrow at Sedgwick County Park.

Many models of Fords will be on display and in competition, including classics.

Kelly Keyser, a board member of the South Central Kansas Mustang Club, will show her dream car: a 2014 black-on-black convertible Mustang.

"I love the look of them," Keyser says. "They’re fun to modify. They are easy to modify. They're easy to make their own. I’ve had my entire car taken apart at some time or another from the inside out and I just love doing it!"

Keyser says spectators and competitors alike love to see what’s been done to the Fords.

"If they painted or put a blower on it, or a lighting kit so that it glows from underneath, and so I think that those of us that really enjoy showing our cars, just really enjoy the modification of it," she says.

Part of the proceeds from the event will go to the Kansas Food Bank.
